Going to flatten them out tomorrow.

Too much higher and at full stuff the arms will be into the tub I think

Forgot I bookmarked that. You mounted your tabs vertical to get the extra height.

Glad I had not burned those all the way in yet

Thanks man!

I struggled all last weekend turning in the rocks. Stretching huh. Not sure I want to buy all the armor again. Give it another 6 months with the new welder and I am sure it will get cut up. I forgot how much fun burning metal is

Ill be watching the install of this since it'll be my next upgrade as well.

Figured for reliability it would be best that the parts were all made to work together. Plus I didn't find any write-ups on people taping the Mercedes box

nice i have everything but the ram on mine and just the extreme box and pump made a huge difference. both were pretty straight forward installs.

how do you plan to mount the ram?

also, i may have noticed a particular tire trade proposal on pirate
