Sanded the rust and removed the flaking coating from my tow hitch. Sprayed those sections black to get me to spring to do it more thoroughly.

Ordered my 35" KM2's.. Costco was out til late January, so I went with Tire Rack .. about the same cost.
Also have my Currie HD steering in the mail from Northridge4x4.com.

I'm going to have to eventually post a picture.. recently installled RC winch plate and Superwinch Epi9.0 with synthetic line, new 4.5" coils, 3/4" spacers and just got my ARB 12v Compressor I gotta hook up so I can actually use my locker. I love this time of year.

Finally paid off...

Smacked it in the headlights with a pair of neoprene boots to get it's attention...Zebracon meet Mr. Green Jeans the Kevlar canoe. You'll be friends.
Sorry of the aftermarket dealer installed (lol) thumb sized holed tow bar.
Stop with the gay raising up...ya look like the neighbors cat. I'll getcha a better approach/depart angle 1day, getcha some narly water resistant to cover the fuzzy zebra stripe ones.

a bit of comic relief of the buggy that gets myself/the stranded home.

Gotcha, good luck. That's most of what was replaced on mine, plus some bands and such.
