Armor. That should be evidenced by the above posts, haha.

It was something I never purchased...and luckily never had to rely on, but I'd say you should armor up, then throw an aussie locker or other lunchbox in the front. I hear that makes the biggest improvement without severly hindering handling, or hurting the wallet.

I guess better say than sorry. Probably should protect the oil pan first and then move on from there?

nice! Do you plan to build a monster again, or just a decently capable trail rig/daily driver?

oil pan and diffs are the biggies.


Grab an engine skid, then pick your style of diff covers. I believe the welded steel ones are ideal, cast iron CAN crack. it wont even bend, but it may crack.

you could do a better gas tank skid, but thats not 100% necessary. i always used to land on my bumper, not my tank, but i think i had a smaller one.

and a steering box skid is cheap and easy, but thats pretty darn high up. My front bumper used to protect my steering box, so no need for me.

Ill build it up a little, but nothing like the "the Goat" ever was. Im still debating whether I go with a Sport model or Rubicon model. That and whether I go 35s or 37s. I dont plan on doing much more rock crawling (well, the kind my Jeep could do) anymore. Itll be more of a trail riding rig.

Can anyone recommend a good place to get my CCW permit? Just picked up a new pistola and want to get legit. I was told to take a class that certified me in NV and UT because UT laws regulate me to carry in other states?

Thanks,
Ricky

I'd tell ya, but then I'd have to kill ya.

With both NV and UT you can carry in other states, UT just has more states you can carry in.

I got mine at American shooters.

Any class should certify you in a both states, in almost every state actually, but you still need to file in that set to gain the reciprocity benefits. A regular nv class will be sufficient for a Utah permit, but you need to submit the paperwork and info for an out of state permit in Utah.

The reason people do this is because there ar a bunch of sates that recognize Utah permits but do not recognize nevada permits. Nothing to do with the class really , just the state laws. Utah nd florida are the most popular 'nonresident' permits i think.

I got my nv permit then got a nonresident new hampshire permit (I'm from new Hampshire and visit it often). The NH permit added several states tp my carry ability.

Www.hangunlaw.us has great reciprocity maps and lots of info about what you can do where.

I only did mine at American shooters because I had a friend doing the same. Gun store was doing free classes for a while but I think they dropped that.
