I also gotta order my new wiring stuff for the winch...
Gotcha. Sounds like we'll both be working right up until the trip then.

I've got no timetable on my sliders because I'll be the first 4th gen with bolt-on's. Have to wait for Jerry to get a 4Runner in the shop to do the measurements

At least you get a garage. My parents will probably relegate me to the driveway. My last project they could park inside for 2 days.

Foglight retrofit sounds awesome! Is it gonna be the same looking setup as your headlights?

TRS Mini Gatlings painted red w/ the bowls painted satin black. Blazer projectors w/ 4300K bulbs...I might take my headlight set up apart and paint the shrouds red there too. I really want to upgrade to better parts, but I'm gunna spend alot on stuff for the bumper...so lights will have to wait.

That's gonna look awesome! What all do you have to buy for the bumper? I thought you already had your winch?

Oh, and did you ever get those sliders on Evey's 4Runner? Last time I saw them they were sitting on the floor of your garage

Got the winch, but I'm going to upgrade to a sealed contactor and I'm going to build 2 or 0 gauge lines at my buddies shop to put the contactor up outta the way. I might buy a new line too.
I'm getting a red hawse fairlead, red permanent shackles w/ isolators.
Plus I already bought the new spare. So I've about warn out my wife's patience with needing just one mo thing...

And yeah-They have been on for a bit now.... And I'll have to see if I have one with the bolt on steps anywhere...she's outta town so I can't take any right now...

Just got off the phone with Dennis, the owner of the park. We're all set for that weekend. When you're about 30 minutes from the park give him a call at either (318)389-4450 or (318)729-1538 and he will meet you at the gate. I'll add this to the OP as well

I can get a big set of crimpers. My dad has a set at his work that I used to crimp the ends on all of my wires for my winch. If you haven't bought the wire yet, you can get it from oreilleys, autozone, etc. and they will cut it to the length you need. You can also cut it with a good pair of dikes, it's just a little difficult.
I'm going to try and bring a air compressor this trip to make things easier and so no one has to worry about airing down. I can throw a jack and a impact in there too.

Lol. Damn straight. If Wes can make it up there's no reason I can't... It might be the only trail I take the demon on that weekend but I'm gonna do it. If its wet the demon will have to sit at the camp site all weekend... Don't want to chance adding unnecessary damage to it...

I'll have mine, the one that runs off the 12V outlet, as well.

Also, I talked to my uncle, he just bought a new Jeep and might come test it out.

This. I really want to try it in the 4Runner but I can't afford that kind of body damage. I'm OK with scratches and scrapes but i don't want a smashed rear window and need a new door....
