Love the look man! I'm considering getting the Trail-Gear rockers and front bumper (which is a copy of the Fabtech). How was the install on the rockers?

I'm also thinking of getting some Ravine rims. Are you running spacers with your stock wheels?

Thanks man. the install was very straightforward. i just had a small hang up because i have a body lift so i had to figure out the whole body mount cutting situation. But once i got it figured out everything else went smooth. I would just recommend an extra set of hands if you have them. But i think youll be happy with them, especially fort the price. I believe the spacers i have are 1.25in. and they just keep the tires from rubbing at full lock

It was my fault for not checking my clearances at the steering stabilizer and fan shroud before bumpstoping. Havng the motor mount in would have been helpful too but i havent recieved it yet and wanted to wheel. Ill post picks of the damage later on when i swap out the radiator but for now here are some pics...



Had some fun at Cleghorn did ya



And this is the one that got me...

Cleghorn is always fun, lots of nice ruts to flex out on

Well it's Big Bear season, then later in the fall start heading out towards Cougar Buttes, lots of fun to be had there even with open diffs, good place to hone driving skills

40's eh, just running 35's isn't cheap, running 40's gets pretty expensive really fast

Yeah but i cant stand the peer pressure from rigs like yours. 35s for now. By the time i have enough to run 40s i should be settled down enough to have a trail rig. so stay tuned
