I dig the marsden matting for the steps.

When I was in Moab in 08 I saw someone who had a couple of 4-6 foot pieces of it on their roof rack. I'm sure it comes in handy in deep sand recovery.

been there! almost lost my index finger on my left hand to a cut-off disk. it immediately cauterized and i never felt a thing till it started itching like crazy a couple days later. i kept it covered in superglue so i wouldnt have to go to the hospital despite the fact that you could see my bone its healed up now though and all ive got left is a scar

Unfortuantly no. Been sucking up a lot of overtime and just got back from our vacation. Might not get to much done until after the holidays. Still trying to have it pretty much done by May '10 for Jeep Beach.

Worked on the other rocker guard today. Next week I hope to finish it and fab the skid plate for the new transmission mounts. Also found a Dana 60 front, still trying to convince the "financial advisor" on this one.

Got the rocker guards all finished up yesterday. I'll get some pics uploaded later. Worked most of the day on a transmission crossmember that I'm going to cut up cause I don't like the way it turned out
