I was going to build a spot for the duallys like I did on your bumper. But I got a piece of metal in my eye, but after having it ground out of my eye and three days of pain i decided im done fabing stuff. This was the design i wanted to do when i built yours I just made some mismessurements when I ordered the steel for yours I just went with it and it turned out awesome.

Ouch sorry to hear that but it looks solid! I am loving mine, thinking of adding some sort of bar above the winch kinda like a stinger.

Its all good, now just got a few odds and ends to do be for Moab in September. I was thinking of build some type of stinger or bar for that bumper but never bought the bender to do the job.

For me built is 37+ double lockers. A lot of the trails I like no one wants to take there Jeep on. Like Upper and lower crusher out at TSF. Elbe is fun only when busy wilds is wet and slushy.

Well I fit the bill then, I will run any trail or at least attempt to! The busy is the only reason I want to even wheel Elbe I have never been before! I hope it better than Evans creek seeing how the only fun trail (198) there wast really a challenge for my rig!

Always wanted to try Evans creek. Busy wilds is fun but not in the dry.

Being locked f&r on 37s it leaves you with very little challenge, it a nice place to camp out for a weekend tho. Besides its always fun watching smaller rigs get smashed up! that and it very pretty up there!



Tsf and naches are on my to do list as well!!
