I might buy a flux core welder soon to add a brush guard to my bumper, fix the rockers, etc.

Pre-runner style for the bumper
Rocker is self explanatory
Maybe rock sliders.

Is it the one they come with? Either way yeah.
I like stingers but don't see the point in a stinger for something that isn't a crawler.

Unless they changed them (which is likely) I don't think that's the logan's one. The ones I saw that came with a stinger had a retardedly huge one.

The parts jeep I got my RE lift kit from came with a NP231. After trouble shooting for the last 5 months I figured out the issue. The transmission mount from belly skid.

Old on the left new on the right





Sitting in place



I can shift into 4wd on the fly again! The damage to the tcase is done tho. I'm picking up another NP242 for $100 hopefully tomorrow.

Did some measuring for new shocks:

Rear opened up to about 27" with about 2" extra room



Compressed to about 19.5 with about 2" of extra room



Fronts open is about 26"



The shocks I'm looking at are the Bilstein 5125s. Model #33-185569. They compress to 17.91" and open to 29.7"

Got this fancy new Aircon panel. It'll let more light through than the stock panel for my LEDs.

You're builds really taking off. Just wondering, why'd you go with the boggers vs mtrs/km2s

The terrain up here in Alaska is where swampers shine. Very few rocks and lots of swap/boggy trails.

The TSLs I got are bias ply. They didn't ballance well at all and I can't go over 50mph. I found a guy that wants them so when he buys them ill be going with a 35 MT/r. I had km2's last year, they did alright. I love the look of the new MT/r's
