I think you should leave the stockers zip tied to the bumper so people know that you're cooler than they are! You didn't like the 3-1/8" bit huh? That's the size I used and personally I'm pretty pleased with how snug they are. I will assay however they will be difficult getting them out. Did you put in the 3 notches or trim them off the light?

I mean I got them in but I really had to force them. And like you said, they are going to be really difficult to get out. I did not use the notches, had to file them down. But I will say the lights will deffinitely not fall out. I bet it using a slightly larger bit, some extra sealing may have to be done for the light to stay?

Haha, I wish I had something to report. Got all these parts to install but s***ty weather. If I had a garage everything woulld be on.

I might be wheelin' on Sat and if the snow has melted enough, Sunday I'll do the GTS now that I picked up some new hardware.

The Under Armor will have to wait til after easter and it starts to warm up a bit.

And hopefull soon I can get to the A to Z bumper. Still waiting on the Antirock after over 3 weeks, which I finally got a email saying its shipping today.

So soon there will be updates!

Ditto. I'm waiting for the snow to melt and at least some decent temps before I head outside and start the tummy tuck process. Seeing as it's almost April, this snow stuff is getting pretty frustrating.

Def. I usually like snow and ski a lot, but haven't been feeling it this year.

Atleast I'll get some wheelin' in tomorrow!

Went wheelin' today. Not any wheelin' pics of me, unless someone else took some, as I was really the only one to take any, but I do have some vids to edit.

Been here before a few times, but never in the snow. A fun time for sure! I was able to do most of the obstacles with ease, as the rigs that I was with that had 40" stickies, had a rough time. Don't stick to well with snow!

And ran into a huge group (15 or so) JK's, most well built, 35's and up.

On to the pics!












Mark got stuck in some of the easiest of places, just spinnin' tire. Needed a tug right here. :up:









Jeremy drivin' Chris' rig. Almost made this, just not enough traction at the top.









Denied. Again no traction at the top.

Yea, it is. Still a good 6 or so inches. Didn't think there would be that much left. Definitely a lot different running it in the snow, but it was a blast!

The last two pics were on the way back, near the bottom on the right side. Before you get to the mud hole.

Success! Got the Savvy GTS mounted today! Picked up new hardware and cut off the old. Was still a ***** to get to, but its done. Gained around an inch. And it was a good time to replace the stock, as it was a bit beat up and the straps were in awful condition.

Hey, just a random question, do you have the wheel well to wheel well rocker guards or the normal length ones?
How do they fit with the rokmen fenders?

I got the wheel well to wheel well, and trimmed a good amount off as the fenders open the wheel well up a bit. I wanted to make sure I had full coverage, so just wanted to cover myself.

Overall they came out great, although I bet the Rokmen sliders would be a seamless fit with their fenders.
