The 3M stuff seemed to take it right off with some elbow grease. I only tried it on a small spot so more to come. I need to get a soft rag before I go to town. Thanks a ton guys!

Oh god that sucks ***s. yeah If the 3m didn't work I was going to sand it off and rat rod my hood flat black and see how it looked worse case I would have it re painted. I dont think it would look that bad black.

QUESTION for you all.

I wanted to wait for Rock krawler to come out with their new steering set up before upgrading. But every time I talk with them it doesn't look to promising that its coming out soon. With rausch Creek trip right around the corner I'm a little worried about running the stock steering set up. Should I just jump on the currie band waggon now or try to hold of a few months? Basically how much abuse can the stock set up take?

I tried to install my antirock. And the end of the bar is damaged. I called currie and the are sending me a new one! They said it could of got damaged in shipping. Awesome customer service!



I also ordered currie steering the other day so more to come on that.

Picked up steel for the new bumper and rocksliders. Oh and some DOM for the sliders.

Just a random picture I took. How do you guys think a roll on paint might look on the frame? I want to clean up and paint the frame before the few small spots of surface rust get bad but I'm not sure I'm digging the spray paint and I don't think I want to bed line it.

Nice rubi man, how do you like those rear flares? Did you just bolt them up or have any plans to weld them?
