]Its been a while sine I've updated this thread. Mostly spending too much time in the funny pics thread and breaking the ol beast.

So as the timeline goes, this is how she's been in the last year n a bit.

Added a little more to the ol ARB for when the going gets tuff and I need the extra loop when it comes time for a snach block.
My 06 build-dave-o-078.jpg

This has been an on going project. These are the tabs for a rack/ tent.
The issue being fully custom and my final rack was IMO unacceptable.

From a meet (my first with some guys from TW).
A great day that created more Ideas and spent more money that wasn't yet earned.

I was getting sick of crawling under the truck to plug in the rear winch controller. Yes I know you can buy remotes for the winches, I have one for the winch up front.
I felt like doing something unique.

You'll have to point it out when you see it. I thought she covered up pretty well.

You need to go to the connection point of the drive shaft with a slight over hang, add keep your pinion from taking a hit

It's the weak spot on our diffs


Other wise no point adding more beef to your already low hanging diff


I took mine off and there's a reason it's not back on .....

I figured I had all the angles covered.
It'll be easy enough to take off and reengineer if it's not worthy.

Just investigated the bamf skid. I see what you mean but I'd be more worried about hooking up on rocks and such with a skid like that. I do like how it covers the joint though.
