Nice video Lu!

If you gopro guys want to get a super steady shot with a simple, cheap, hand held homemade piece of professional type equipment, check out the silver flyer gimbal on youtube. Small enough just to throw in the jeep & steadiness is 100% better.

I enjoy making videos even though they may not be the best quality. I cant believe that trail was something like half a mile and it took us around 4 hours haha

youtube's anti-shake will kill your video. The gopro has a nice mechanism in it which helps a lot w stability. I just noticed it on the videos that I made this week out at Rausch

Just FYI... a lot of that video was shot by me and my 12yr old son, not really paying enough attention to being steady. We were having to much fun!

I'm not a fan of youtube's anti shake feature.

Lou, when you installed your Genright stretch tank/kit, what other components did you have to replace, if any (such as control arms, rear driveshaft, etc)?

For the tank install alone you don't need anything else. When you remove the stock tank you take the fuel pump assembly out of it and use that in the new genright tank.

For a stretch not only do you need a stretch tank or fuel cell but longer driveshaft, longer control arms, adjusted spring perches, outboard shocks, cut the body for the wheel to not make contact and potentially longer brake lines. Not sure if I missed anything.

****. I thought that I could make the move to a rear stretch kit after replacing my CA's to adjustable CAs. that's crazy for about 5 extra inches in the rear

Forgive me if this was covered Lu, but what is your take on the Defender high lines? Fit, install, etc.

I'm researching my next build: Rokmen no longer makes a flared high line, Sinister fab doesn't either, that leaves PSC and Gen right. Defenders come with a battery tray bracket - genright you fork out another $200 for that.

If you had to do it again would you go with the Defenders again?

I love my hiline defenders.

Overall the fitment was great my only issue is with the inner fenders they designed them to kind of be in the way of my antirock arms. If you recall I welded a gusset to the grill to hold it back some and still need to grind down the antirock arm bolt a bit.

I would do it again if I had to.
