It's pretty nice out today...thinking about stripping the Rhino off and rattle canning it today. I was thinking about having the whole thing repainted by Maaco or something, but meh. Eventually most of it will be covered by Armor anyways.

I do have to get the Rhino off though. Talked to both Metalcloak and Poison Spyder, and both of them told me that I will almost certainly have fitment issues with the rear corner guards if I don't get the Rhino off. I know I'm a month+ away from being able to afford the rear corners (grumble grumble...exwife...grrrrrr) but no reason I can't prep for it now

Oh and I ordered a Ruff Stuff 8.8 kit. Off the top of your head, does anyone know the part number or where I should pick up the driveshaft flange adapter for cheap? It's the only part I haven't seemed to book mark for the 8.8 swap....

Cheers

I removed the hard top and installed a Bestop super top it's been raining on and off all day and I couldn't get it out in the sun so it would stretch so one of the zippers won't close all the way

I bent that stinger winch mount already. Actually did it last weekend. Don't get towed from it without beefing up the winch plate.
Alls good though I still like it and I straightened it by ramming a tree. :-)
