I agree that light bar was ridiculous. Is this a DD too or mainly on trails.

did some more upgrades and played around at the badlands a bit today.

UCF UHC skid, still modding things to get the lopro to work
ended up having to use a 1" radiator drop with the tummy tuck
Finally figured out a decent place to mount the stock rubi air pumps
changed the 03 trans pan to the new design
Tatton drive shaft w/ all three 1330 u-joints
replaced a wheel bearing
upgraded to h4 headlights

still want to play around with my control arm lengths a bit and i think a new muffler is on the list, but was very happy with the results for a rainy,sandy, sloppy day
