Thats kind of what im thinking, its a blue on top and blueish green under that one. I think, lol dont remember now.

Mocked up bumper, gonna be a ***** making it fit but worth it. Its drying now, gonna bring the winch in tomorrow, put it in and see if I can get the damn thing to fit.





Also my trail gear limiting straps showed up, very thick and high quality. I gotta loosen the bolts they dont move freely now but mount perfect and perfect length! My rig has 36" from tire to ground..not bad











More to come

Hell yeah unfortunately I am only really limited to using a hawse fairlead with this setup since most fairleads mount in the middle. I have to see what will fit but I will probably have to go with an ARB fair lead.

I got the bumper in, It sucked. When the guy hit the ditch in the jeep, it bent the bumper in and wrapped the bracket 180 degrees so I had to bend that back and it still wasnt straight. I got all the bolts on the drivers side in but gave up at midnight, I will do the rest tomorrow. I also forgot my winch hook at home. Next pain in the *** is extending all the wires for the solenoid. I am going to do a cowl induction intake and mount the solenoid for the winch where the intake was.

Taco time:



Putting this hear so I remember where all the wire goes. You ****ers can just look at it if you want.



How the winch sits



Bumper on







All the wires are just tucked under out of the way of the fan but heres how much room I have, barely any!





Ill try to get better pics tomorrow

Yeah I was working out of town in fairmont and took 169 up so I decided to stop by it was around 1 I would say man I was drooling over your front axle and bumper.
But I'm going to try and make it for crawl for cure with my cousin just rebuilding the silverados motor so I can tow with it up there.

Congrats mang! Me and my current girly are getting our place here soon, were getting her moms house while we look for our own just helped her mom move today (downside to owning a pickup truck). Were gonna see how it goes we have spent week long stretches on wheeling trips and such being together but never living together and doing all the good stuff like that so if it goes well, I might pop the question eventually. Atleast a year, no way I am putting my name on a house with her without being a married so maybe it will get us a better place since just me owning a place I cant get anything over $80k right now unless we were buying together.

And thanks all in due time! Haha

My buddy actually is selling his 38s and I am considering it on this lift height haha. But I dont want to do 38s on a D30. Id say it all depends what you want, different strokes for different folks. After doing this hobby for a good 6 years now, I find I like my rigs low. I like the feeling of a low center of gravity, feels more stable off camber, not as tippy when crawling and less feeling of going over backwards on climbs. Plus it fits in the garage haha. Most guys I wheel with agree but some others say they like fender clearance, I have even heard the excuse they like it better a little higher because they feel it actually wheels better.

Thats just my 2 cents. I wasnt even going to do long arms but my LCA brackets were messed up from when the PO hit the ditch and I figure it replaces my flimsy stock crossmember. Any questions you got just ask, I will do my best to help anyone out
