Yeah I got 4 solid tacks on every cap. None of them have moved yet and I have beat on it good

I fixed the moving thing 24 years ago after moving 3 times in year. Got to much junk now to even consider moving

Having a hard time deciding if I should just wheel my rig as is for the summer or start on my next round of mods that will probably have it down for a couple months. I'm anxious to wrench.... and to wheel! Decisions.....

You guys are right, ill wheel it until the trails close for winter again. Planning some stretch action Lu.... rear..... and front! Whatever it takes to get to 104" is the plan in my head. We will see how it turns out in reality. D35 stays. Haha, Tates Jeep purchase has been put off to next spring due to us moving and the expenses I've incurred over selling my old house. Boo.

I just feel like I've accomplished all I can, or even more than I should have done at 94". I do want to cruise the Rubicon this summer, and run Chocolate thunder, (ART, lets go!) before I make changes, just for kicks and before I retire the D35. I guess if I wait till winter I can do the 8.8 swap also.....
