I feel really bad about taking so long to get everything installed. I ust got off the phone with the powder coater again. No he says "no later than Friday". He's always been really fast with everything before. I want to get a move on with this stuff! I can install rear bumper brackets and I still need to slot the holes in the fan shroud. Other than that I'm waiting on him...

Does any one have pictures of the modifications needed to the rear OE exhaust hangers?

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

OK. With the rear brace out and everything loose I can fit both wings in. Rear brace can then go back in but given interference with muffler can realistically only put in 6 out of 9 bolts (the driver's side three and middle three) and then have meaningful contact with the muffler and the passenger side of the brace. Should I leave it in like that till I fix the exhaust (I have one of those clamps ordered)? It's not rattling so it doesn't bother me if it doesn't hurt anything. Or better to take brace out till fixed?

I'll be at NOVA Trailfest in Mass this weekend if anybody will be there and wants to see the Under Armor in person.

Ran Dead Fall in the Berkshires today as part of NOVA Trailfest. Extra clearance from the Under Armor was huge! There were still definitely some challenges being only on 31s, but would have been a very long day without that increased clearance. I think I did put a few small scratches in it, although probably put more on the GT skid. After two more days of trails I'll take some pictures. Blaine/Gerald, you have a very satisfied customer here.

First oil change tonight with skids in place. "Door" in skid provided good access to drain plug. Pretty easy to get a wrench on the nuts on top to take the bolts holding the door out and then back in after. As long as oil coming out steady no problems. Once it slowed to a trickle started to catch on the lip of the door. Might want to have a funnel or something like that handy to jam up there underneath and try to catch it. Otherwise you can end up with a bit of mess inside the skid that you have to try and jam shop towels up in there to soak up any spill. Overall a bit more work than oil change before on there, but still pretty simple and straightforward.

Might have to experiment with both options to see what is best. Either way seems like this weekend I should be able to get my contact issue corrected.

If you're ever down in lower Westchester stop by in Tuckahoe. Or I keep saying I'm going to come to some of the HV4W meetings.
