Going to flatten them out tomorrow.

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

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
