I'm sorry to hear that man. How bad did you tear it up?

The damage isn't bad. There's just a couple noticeable dents in the skid plate. The Beast is running just fine. I just don't want to risk doing some serious damage to it. At least until I can get a lift put in. I got a buddy who's got one and will install it for me. I just need save up the money haha

Good news! I should be able to get the lift nlt September. I'm pretty stoked. Especially since I plan on putting 1.5" spacers on the front two wheels. That should really help with the bigger tires. Hope y'all are doing well. It's been pretty quiet on here for a while.

Still haven't driven like that. I've had the top off for the last couple weeks though! It's great!

I've had my top off for a while. Its definitely different with the windshield down. I just wish my roll cage didn't look so ridiculous.

Yeah, add ons to my roll cage to make it "full" are on my unending mod wish list. That might actually come sooner than other mods. I just got an oxyacetylene set and a Miller 225 stick welder! ; )

I wish I knew how to weld. I've been wanting to build a bumper forever. One more thing to add to the list of things I want to learn.

It's actually much easier than people would lead you to believe. It just takes practice.
