thanks we think it will work nicely to change out a tire on the trail vs having to strap the suspension and try to keep the hi lift stable

Picked up an AtoZ fab stubby bumper last night and got it mounted up this evening







A few weeks ago we installed a set of the Skid Row mirror relocation brackets

How do you like those brackets? Can you still see out your pass. window? Does the door hit them when they're wide open?

Love the mount on the passengers side it moves it forward so you look threw the windshield at the mirror is a very comfortable location and with a passenger its not blocked. the door dose not hit them but we're not running the stops in the stock location with the BTF cage. the doors open about 85-90*

went wheeling at RC today with it and it preformed great other then trashing the pass side bump stop and losing the spring twice. once because is slipped off the spring keeper and took the bump stop with it. the other from unseating the coil and not having a bump stop to hold it in place.

Who says short arms can't flex. we do need to fully readress the bump stops and fenders on the rig. Metal cloaks are in the near future

the trashed bumpstop area. ignore the zip ties just a temp fix so we could get the rig off the trail and maybe not lose the spring again


instead of making something work or getting an oem replacement decided to go all out and run saw 2in air bumps.

Trail corners from Poison Spyder. On the way are a pair of arched tube fenders from Metal Cloak.
