Well the first part of my Rokmen order showed up today.

Engine skid:


Look at those welds


JKS mml:


And Dave sent me a free t-shirt since my shipping got a little bit messed up. Great guys to deal with over there


Stuff is heavy duty. Can't wait to get it on and not have to worry nearly as much anymore. Rokmen's still waiting for their steel right now, so once they have that they'll build and send out my belly up. Dave said should be about a week and a half turnaround. Hope to have everything on in two weeks. I'll get the mml and paint the engine skid tomorrow

Loving your build.
Us rokmen fan boys need to get together and go wheeling sometime

have fun getting that shipping label off.
If you have trouble here is what I do: pour some water on it then take a wirewheel too it. only takes a few seconds and it was the only way I could get all the goo off.

the engine skid is the only piece of rokmen armor that I am missing, I feel like I am helping put Dave and Jeffs kids through college lol

Thanks fellas.

And thanks for the advice Quicksilver, I love your build too. I'd love it if we could all go wheeling together but Tennessee is a tiny bit far for a wheeling trip for me. . $750 still seems kinda crazy for a 17 year old to spend on steel, but man is this stuff nice!

The MML will lift the front of my motor up, therefore letting the t-case output shaft down a little bit, helping my drivline angles. It'll also replace the fan shroud bracket that came with my PA body lift and put that back to normal.

My painted steering. Hopefully going to get this and the MML on within a few days. Talked to Rokmen, and it's still going to be around two weeks until my belly up is ready...

Got my MML on a couple days ago, and just got my steering on tonight. Hopefully this Rigged Ridge crap works out for me. A lot of people don't like it, but some do. We'll see after it gets aligned tomorrow.

Atleast it looks good
(sorry about the crappy night pictures, I'll get new ones tomorrow...not that anybody cares)




Also got a good deal off craigslist on some new 130w Long Range KC Slimlights that i'll be picking up Saturday morning, and some windsheild brackets i'm buying from a friend.

Thanks! I believe they are $175 new. He had them posted for $150, and after talking he said he'd take $130. So $130 it is...And I'll hopfully be getting the brackets from a friend for like $15 instead of $30
