So nice. I have not really been a fan of the Savvy bumper till now. I really like the look of that.

Mike. Love your new Avatar. You must have a great photographer. hehehe
I def still need a winch and I plan to run some lights for sure. I have these tabs that I can run lights right above the recovery hooks and/or on the brush guard. Not sure if I want to have lights in both locations.

The color came out awesome, looks even better in person.

Spoke with Tom at Poly Performance. Ordered up the 4link kit with universal truss and shock axle mounting brackets. Also ordered the lower link axle brackets from Artec.

I keep telling myself thats it, and this time I have no choice. This rear suspension makeover will be the last large purchase for a while.

That four link is going to give the rear end a lot of flex, but you're probably going to want to truss up that front end before long. That's what I am doing next. Krash found me a sweet deal on a TNT truss for the front. I only trust upgraded axle shafts so much on the front end. And don't forget your hydro steering assist. Your gonna need that with the big wheels, and the big brake kit. And have you forgotten about the full rollcage? Your gonna want that to. After all that, your gonna wish you had the Atlas TC, so you might want to start shopping there. You get the picture.
