You can either beef the stock mount or try to cut it off. You will ber amazed at how well the damned thing is on there though

What pressure are you running your MTR's at on the street ? I'm at 20 and it seems about perfect...they are brand new though.

I run 23-25ish. They seem to be wearing good I have 3000 or so miles on them.

Went to Afton Canyon over the weekend. Found some cool stuff but spent a lot of time driving around looking for it, . Oh well, will have to go back out and find the spooky canyon and secret lava tubes. Some nice easy wheeling and camping was nice. Got to drive on top of a volcano which was neat.

I'm lacking in the picture department but I'm sure my bud took some good ones as always.

Mojave River, for you east coasters yes there is a river running through the middle of the desert.

Mojave Megaphone. I'm not sure what the big deal about this one was

Jeep needs some maintenance too, got some an annoying rattling noise, I think something in the steering column is rubbing, got a little shimmy, and alignment is off again. I don't remember hitting the tie rod at Stoddard Wells, oh well. I think it's about time for some new ball joints and unit bearings as preventative maintenance.

Awesome pics. I'd like to check out the Mojave one day and just cruise around all over the place. Seems like you'd need a good list of things to see so you're not just wandering all over the place

If you don't know where you are going then yep you are just driving through the desert. That's not so bad though. I want to go back with the trailer and hit all the cool stuff out there.

I'm not sure I recommend visiting the Mojave Megaphone, LOL. At least I can say I've seen it though

Bedliner is fun, Everything on the trailer is getting coated inside and out. The steps and tongue box are done in Premium.







Possibly the coolest Harbor freight tongue box ever?

What Liner are you spraying ? It looks a lot like the Line X in my rig . If I had access to a sprayer there would be trouble .

Craigslist strikes again this time with something pretty important IMO. Within the last year I personally know of 3 that have ripped the frame side trackbar off the front, and 3 that have ripped the rear trackbar/UCA bracket off. This nice little mig should give some peace of mind on the trail.

Ive been watching some vids on it and it does seem to make some decent welds. Maybe my rig needs a dual battery setup so I can run it by myself
