Ordered my warn front hitch receiver today! $236 later....it should be here in 6-8 weeks. BRUTAL! Oh well. That'll give me some time to save up for the winch.

Just as long as I have it for Ice fishing season!

Actually did it yesterday, but replaced the rear hatch window seal and finally put the rear door plastic trim piece back on (had been out since March when I was hunting down the source of the leak). Its been raining like crazy and so far so good with the new seal.

nope you shouldnt need to but you are going to need some lift though. most people say you need about 4 in to clear completely and not rub

Installed RCX 4" in about 8 hours. Went pretty smooth except for Axel side of track arm bold snapped in half. Had to pry track bar out and there was still about 1" of bolt left. Took another nut and welded it on where the track arm normally sits. Then cranked the remaining bolt out. Then had to re-bend all the metal back to get other bolt back in. Now gotta start trimming...LOTS... Orderd IOR winch bumper and cut out flares to clear 33" tires. Will post pics soon

I ran a 3" IRO lift and moabs without any rubbing whatsoever. However, now that I've replaced the front control arms with adjustables I do get rubbing on full lock because the control arms dont have the relief bend in them, they are straight. I'll need to pick up some 1" spacers eventually.

Yea, no kidding. my arms sore lol, It was horrible and when on the interstate the high lights were like normal driving lights lol

Second light took more sanding and will have to go to 1500/2000 wet/dry paper tonight.

Steps were with wet/dry sandpaper:
#600 removed scratches.
#1000 to smooth out,
then polishing compound.

gonna hit them again tonight with 1500/2000 then put a terry cloth on my dual action sander with polishing compound.
