Poked through your thread looking for info on your lockers. I see you had them installed and looks like it was quite the roller coaster ride. Did you head south of the border to have that done? Just trying to estimate how much it's going to cost me. Also, most of your issues seem to be regarding install, any reviews on the actual parts used?

Hey guys, I'm still alive n kickin! Been getting lots of work done, not only to the house but on the truck as well.

Finally, over year and half later I got the new ATO bumper mounted! Along with a pretty much a new M8000 (most internals were replaced under warranty) and LowRange Offroad aluminum hawse fairlead, i also respooled the winch with a Warn Spydura synthetic rope (3/8" x 80'). Piaa 510's are installed but still need to finish the wiring. Only thing left to install is the 22" led light bar from OKledlightbars.com. Should have it all wrapped up this week but all in all, I couldn't be happier. This bumper is stout and well built by Kevin. I'm quite pleased with how well it turned out and fitment was pretty much spot on. How about I let the pictures speak for themselves...

I should add, bumper has been painted with POR-15 with a krylon satin black top coat. (need a top coat since por15 fades in direct sunlight) I can't wait to see how long term effectiveness of this paint vs powdercoating helps make it last while living in the salt belt during 5 months of winter.

It was a bit of roller coaster ride but only afterwards when I got home and really inspected everything. I drove down to NC and had ECGS (east coast gear supply)to have them install the gears and lockers. Although there was quite a few issues afterwards Chase did make it up to me after speaking with him.

So far, two years later the lockers have worked perfectly, never had a single issue with them whatsoever. I couldn't be happier with regearing to 4.56's as well. For 35's it's spot on for driving around town, but offroad in Low and she really crawls. Rest assured with anything labelled ARB you are going to be getting a quality product.

Couldn't agree more guys! Might be wheeling this coming weekend if the stars align, so stay tuned for some trail pics and vids. I'll be sure to be around a little more often.

Till then, here's some vids of the holes my buddies were playing in and some gopro footage of me playing around. Still waiting to get a hold of the vids my buddy took of me doing water wheelies and going in rack deep swamp but i'll post them within the week.

Fuck that! I hate deep shit. Too messy to clean up! It's fun for a while though and occasionally I like mud. I've decided to snorkel the grizzly! I sucked a little water in the clutch and slipped the belt. My dad pulled me out with his Grizz. Told my buddy next weekend we're tearing the plastics off and laying out some plumbing!

haha, I didn't mind the mud at all surprisingly. Probably since I usually avoid it with the truck it was great to finally let loose and get as dirty as possible. Plus we just paid $10 to power wash the atvs right in the park after we were done. Good Idea on the snorkels tho, better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it... Shouldn't be too hard to snorkel the grizz, are you planning on running two 1.5" pipes off the air box? Couldn't believe how well this Kodiak ran, just needed a lot more power, but pretty much made it through everything my buddy and his mudpro (on 30" backs) went thru. Id say for around here, (especially at that atv park) snorkels and a rad relocate are pretty much mandatory if you wanna play in the holes. Lots of trails to run tho, but i'll more than likely end up with two different sets of wheels/tires to make the best of it. One thing I found interesting, my buddies Grizz 660 sitting on 30" Silverbacks kinda struggled in the deeper holes. Didn't water wheelie as much as the Kodiak did, but I think he may need clutch work.

Bumper looks awesome. Hope you don't mind, but I'm definitely going to try the same coating. What type of Krylon did you use? This stuff?

Yup, that's the stuff I used. Lemme know how the Por-15 works out for you over the winter. Stone chips should be a thing of the past, I hope. This stuff dries super hard and is a little $$ but hopefully it does the trick. I'll know after one winter. haha
