Soooo sexy.

When will that rear bumper be available: I could use some recovery points that I can trust to more than towing around my 14' aluminum boat (aka my u haul hitch)

And how do I go about getting a sticker?

Need a Mechanical Engineering Intern?

If that's a mule, mines a total asso!
Nice.

PM me your address and I'll send some out.

I guessing the rear bumper will be available in a couple of weeks.

What size? XS for Wendy?

And, if you guys didn't catch it Larry's rig was the other test mule. It performed really well at the Hammers last week. He did all sorts of recovery and fuel replenishment.

I'll do aluminum links as soon as you figure out how to make one with a barrel for a JJ on one end. I know how much you love tightening jam nuts back up and the one thing you cannot have happen with aluminum is run it with loose jam nuts.

There is absolutely nothing that will change that. But, if your forehead is still round, keep smacking it into that wall.

That sounds like a real problem for the links. Be savvy about it though. Can you have the aluminum arms with a flat plate. The flat place would provide a place for the links to mount.

I don't really know if that could possibly work, but it is worth a try.


BTW, I love how you used the word cannot properly. Most people fail to ever use it, and they use can not in the wrong context.

Edit: Maybe that is why you use the word. You alluding to certain things that I am overlooking.

About that. You have to include the heavy lift and tires though.

I believe stock dry weight is like 3400lbs, so that is 100lbs in gas, and 400lbs for the lift ,tires, and armor.

No way to make a JJ barrel out of aluminum? also, what if you had a split in the arm and ran a pinch setup instead of a jam nut?
