Motor mounts came in yesterday.. Should have them in today. Going to Gulches this weekend as kind of our last trip before school starts and before I start on my stretch. I hope to have it done before November when we have the next Uwharrie trip planned.

Installed the new motor mounts today. Quite pleased with them so far. Can feel a slight more vibration coming from the motor but nothing thats not bearable. I actually like the feeling of knowing my motor is actually there

Ive got the poly mounts. I dont mind the extra vibes but I can see where some others might.. they do get a little worse on the trail in 4lo though.

Well small update. I've been super busy with trying to get the manche done and up for sale. Was in a small 4x4 show at the beginning of the week and got a couple poser pics and did stumble upon some half doors yesterday and couldn't pass them up. As for now as soon as I get the manche done I'll start ordering parts for the stretch and getting it done either late September to mid October.





They do need a little work but Im happy with them.

Yeah I think they just chopped the door in half and welded plate to fill in the gap. they did have to redo the handle.. the guy took the factory door handle apart and just used the button and mounted in the top of the door to open in. I like how he did it.. I want to fab up a canvas frame and do something like the TJ half doors so when I'm done I don't have to take them off lol
