We went camping in Mammoth Lakes, Ca this weekend. We tried to get back to Laurel Lake but the trail was still partially blocked by snow. It was still a really fun, beautiful trail. Can't wait to try it again.

My Under Cover Fabworks aluminum engine skid got delivered tonight. Hopefully I can get around to installing it this week/weekend.

Very nice looking build. Sorry to hear about your bad luck at the mall.

Beautiful, I drove my XJ up there two years ago in early July; there was much less snow on the trail then. We were able to make it all the way to the hiking trail where we parked and walked the rest of the way to the lake.

Just measured a couple things on my jeep. First off, my 33x12.5" Cooper stt's measure out to about 32x12".

As far as the lift, I've gained 4.75" in the front and 4.5" in the back. That's with Currie 4" HD springs, stock bumpers, no winch, and a spare in the tub (no back seat).

I got the UCF skid installed today. Beefy as hell. Hopefully tomorrow I can scrape it up on some rocks.

Well my flares look like crap and I've been meaning to paint them, so I'm in the middle of doing that right now. I'm using Rustoleum spray on bedliner. It looks great.

Before. Faded and looking like ***.


During. I didn't take pics, but I wedged playing cards between the flare and the body, then taped up newspaper to protect from overspray.


I'm just doing the rears today because I didn't have a lot of time, but I'll do the fronts on Wednesday.

So I've been wanting to raise my seat up a bit to help with my bad knees and back on longer trips, but I didn't want to pay $50+ for a seat riser "kit." I was given a link in another thread to Performance Accesories which had a 1" spacer for $.99. (Performance Accessories 1" MINI BLOCK) I ordered 4 for the driver seat only. I just got them last night and ran to a local auto store to get some replacement bolts and washers that are 1" longer. Total cost for the hardware was $4.67. That puts the total price of the seat riser project to under $10..less shipping and handling ($7).

The spacers were easy to put in, it only took about 10 minutes.

I'm 6'3" so I didn't need it so I could see better, but it gave me a better view. I needed it because being so tall, the back of my thigh just above my knee was never resting on the seat. This caused my knee and leg to be at an awkward angle, which in turn made long drives pretty uncomfortable. Now with the 1" spacers, my thigh is resting on the seat, I don't have to have my leg angled to the side for support, and I noticed I'm sitting with much better posture now too, which is good for my always hurting back. I really wish I did this a long time ago.
