you know it's the only part on my Heep that doesn't have a scratch so I'm looking forward to adding more character

Really: it's easy to take it on and off - just take your time + it frees up space for other things

Finaly changed the speedometer gear so the speedo is now correct. My daughter has her driving test Thursday, so it HAD to be done!

my tire carrier

I finished installing my Or-Fab tire carrier, it took me 13 hrs. the Instruction said it could be done in 2 hrs, well i'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I find it hard to believe, unless there were two of you, and you had a service bay with a hoist.

Bent the crap outta my stock tie rod Sunday running up against a stump. Pulled the TR yesterday and sleeved it with some Schedule 80, spot filled and welded both ends. More bedderest now. Going back to kick the crap outta the stump next weekend.

God grant me the serenity to accept the impossible trails I cannot crawl, courage to crawl the twisted trails I can, and the wisdom to keep the rubber side down.

I had a friend who did the same thing several years ago except he broke the tierod in half. I rode with his brother to get a tow truck and when we got back the stump was nothing but ashes!
