Agreed.

Are you sure the motor is good?

Im sure the motor is good, bypassed the solenoids and it works. I though about recessing it but just don't have the time and it only gains me 3 inches to do that. Approach is hurt but Ill get around it someway

I'm sure if he scrapped that bumper, it'd give him enough cash for a good bumper with an awesome approach... .!..!.

Finally got access to the internet again so I can post vid and pic from Rausch creek with Spokes. Some of the highlights from the weekend. Ended up abusing my sliders at every turn trying to follow the crew on 33s and more lift than me. No body damage occured but I did some bending of the exhaust on rocks. Ended up bending the drag link to the point I couldnt steer. Was able to bend it straight with the aid of a winch. Had a good time with Spokes and owe him for pulling me from the water hole as I took on water. Pulled the carpet the next wek and have since Herculined the interior.

X2 I hope to haul my rig over there one day and see what its all about. Hear too many good things, and see too many great pics to not have that on my bucket list.
