Wow! 154 pages and still going. Love the build thread and that deck turned out awesome! Any update on the Rampage bumper (bummer?) situation?
154 pages...and I promise that I'm more amazed than you. Rampage made good on everything: I kept the front bumper and returned the rear one, and they actually ended up sending me - free of charge - an older model that was a "bumper only" configuration in case I wanted to play with it and make something to my liking. Even though it was a frustrating rollercoaster, they're good people to deal with...and that's worth more than most people will ever realize.
By far, the best looking cover I have ever seen. Absolutely amazing my friend. I now officially have jeep envy.
I got Greta buttoned back up this afternoon and headed out to take test lap around town to let her coolant circulate - I changed it a week or so ago - and to make sure there were no rattles or vibrations or loose screws. Before I even cleared the neighborhood a guy in a new four-door JK passed me and did a double-take when he saw the deck...and that, My Pretties, was not only proof that there is indeed a god, but also that she has a wonderfully wicked sense of humor.
Sundowner, you have done an incredible job with that deck! If a second one mysteriously appears in your garage I will take it, not sure where you are located but have you ever been to Moab? EJS?
Most appreciated, my friend. I've seriously thought about making a few more, now that I've cleared the prototyping problems. I'm nowhere near Moab, but I'd planned on being there in the spring for that little get-together they host...but since Annabelle just changed jobs we're not sure if we'll get to go; she got a nice raise, fewer hours and a shorter commute, but she lost the accrued vacation at her former place of employment.
Also, speaking of Annabelle...everybody be sure to wish her a Happy Birthday.
If it's worth doing, then it's worth over
