These things really are a "best kept secret" Mod. Definitely one of the highest cost/benefit ratio mods.

Took wife garage sale-ing in it. Awesome weather. Have a honey-do next and hope to parlay success of that into motivation to reset front pinion, install windstar airbox and possibly even replace rear pinion seal if I get real lucky, at a minimum I need to top off the gear oil before going wheeling tomorrow.

Flexed it, track bar and drop need to be replaced with adjustable. Way too close to diff and spring mount. Same with rear track bar. What yall think of FT control arm flex, personally I don't like it, would prefer MC duroflex. Exhaust is pretty close too,l. Could use some more clearance. Overall not bad though. Did great in the trails out in the dunes.

Probably not any time soon, that's a 4hr drive and I'm not a huge beach fan. Maybe you should come over to CS.

5-tire rotation.
Removed wheel spacers, calipers and rotors to remove all the mud and yuck from last weeks wheeling.
I had to bend a dust shield, that was rubbing the front driver side rotor, back into shape.
I also changed the oil and filter.

Just bought that antenna mount but am planning on putting it on the side of the tub not the rear. Hopefully that will reduce some of the smacking against the hardtop? No?

^I would think so. I didn't realize until after I drilled holes that it now blocks my window from opening, thankfully the spring can be bent enough to allow it to open.

Surely there's some sort of quick connect/disconnect you could add on there, I'd like to think.

And good rock crawling out there? Or a off road ranch in between?
