I haven't looked too much into it myself other then my haynes manual....but do you really have to remove the hitch receiver to remove the rear bumper cover?

^^^no. You remove the trim on top, a couple screws under that, I believe 4 clips underneath, then however many clips are in each wheel well. The covers then pulls straight toward you.

Fixed the t-case linkage and put the e-fan back in (just in case I need to sit still with it running in the snow tomorrow). Cheapo radiator is going in Sunday so I can send the Griffin out for repair (and then I can bring the cooling system back to full pressure without having leakage).

Painted the metal bumper support thing, gonna try and rock no bumper for awhile, we'll see how it goes.


Thinking about putting a matte black 4x4 emblem across it sorta like, this just no red outline. (Not the best at photoshop)

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Put everything back together. Luckily, my road got plowed and it stopped snowing. It was still cold outside...

My working conditions:


I didn't take a lot of pictures of the install. Too cold for that. New valve covers and bolts, though. Beauty shots:




Intake is next! It's going to be black. Need to add some contrast.
