Did they tear-up any more rock down there ? I noticed the first set of obstacles is all but gone on the main road .
This was a Local BLM area named Little Moab. Not the real Moab

Your sensors are exposed to moisture more than you think they are. They will be fine.

No, they just took about half of that front rock area. I heard it was used for the i15 core project in Utah county. They have piled a big mound of dirt in that spot, and it looks like guys have been climbing it in a few spots.

I hope those arms work out well for you! You should drill out the sleeves in the bushings on axle and on the arm and throw a 1/2" bolt in there why ya got them off more beefy! That obstacle is tricky you'll get it next time out.

Finally decided to post, I love this build.

I think I missed it, but where did you get those vents?

Today I bed lined my. Gastank skid / underbody / wheel wells / front and under sides of my Bumper. / sliders. And frame rails.

In a few weeks I'll probably hit up the axles

Today I had bedlined the lower portion of my Xj and the rear bumper it looks much better now IMO. I am still unsure if I will remove the side moldings and spray another coat to make a strait line across the bottom.

I did that with mine years ago with Herculiner. I took the rubber trim off though and did the lower 1/3. Love it!
