I'm happy with most everything except the rear, looks like trash IMO, and hangs down way too low, I drag it over everything. Which is why it's getting rebuilt after the driveshafts and skids are done

Just read about your dislike for the mud lol. I was talking to an old circle burning buddy of mine, he said I should put that great stuff spray foam in my frame rails. Said they did it all the time to keep the frames from filling up, sounded like a great idea to me.

They're already full of mud, I still would like to cut them open and clean 'em out but just haven't gotten around to it.

I've always been afraid of great stuff trapping moisture and whatever in and just promoting rust

Got some toys in the mail today

Reservoir tank 1 of 2, 1.5"/ft reamer


And a good set of snap/retaining ring pliers


One tank will be for the diff breathers, other for power steering fluid once I get the hydro assist together

I've been lazy, trip this weekend isn't happening, and next wheeling trip is like 3-4 weeks so I haven't had the energy to get working on it with it being 98* out ever day.

I picked up 1/4" plate for the skids, and sheared/bend what I could, should be getting either these or the hydro assist/1ton stuff done this weekend hopefully.


Then found a stocker to park next to haha

How are the bearings? Usually if a seal goes its the bearings, or yoke.

Seal's holding up good, must have just ****ed up the first

Ordered led tails for when I do my quarter armour
Same tails as these

I'm tired of replacing broken taillights so I'm going to wrap the rear quarters around like the pic and put them in, buddy got them and they're bright as hell at night, and you can actually see in reverse, so thats a plus.

Last few days have been hot as **** so I haven't got much else done. Need to get the driveshafts in, skids finished up, pick up my spare, get the steering/hydro stuff on, and then the rear quarters, redo the rear bumper, and do tube fenders here in the next few weeks and I'll be happy with it for awhile.

I run those on both of mine without the backup lights. Have to trick the system or they blink fast, and the Vic flashes

Vic already flashes anyway, replaced all the bulbs a few times and resoldered everything so idk whats with it. It'll eventually get replaced with a switch/gauge panel

And I don't really care if they flash fast or not lol, i'll probably just wire the resistors in anyway, but doesn't really matter to me
