So after a little sanding and a little paint... now I can rest easy.


Did the same to mine. Hated the white so I scraped it off. Nice job!

I have added more stickers. The stickers on the hood look awesome, from a distance, but, they have these little bubbles that refused to be flattened. Hopefully, the sun sorts them out;

You'll love that skid! I've had mine for about 1 1/2 years now I think. I have SLAMMED down on rocks more times than I can count. There's huge gouges in it and it's bowed a little but still ready for more punishment! And trust me, for the damage I've done to it, I am AMAZED it's still holding strong! Obviously I've been over-testing my skidplates, lol. I just got the lift/tires last week to finally avoid testing my skidplates so much.

Brett,

Thanks for the feedback. I will be in Moab in 10 days...your comment assures my confidence in the skid.

Did you have to bend the muffler hanger upward a bit? I didn't on mine because I had about 1/4 inch clearance between the pipe and the skid.

I did have to bend the muffler hangar. It was a bit of a pain in the ***, but in the end it was fine. And like I said though, it's a very tough skid that takes punishment and keeps on grinning.

Have fun in MOAB, I wish I was going. Maybe when I'll be able to take some leave in august-ish I'll try and make a trip down there for a week or so. Would be fun if I have the time/money.

I'm stationed up here in Washington, and while I'm over here on the west coast, the two major spots I plan on traveling to are the Rubicon trail and MOAB. Gotta take advantage of being closer while I am!

Will do.

Hope you can get to Rubicon and Moab soon. Do the Rubicon in first couple of weeks in August -- cool at night and no mosquitoes.
