    Did a lot of work the past couple weeks, put one some real leafs , I got wheelers 8 leaf pack and install was super easy. They feel way better than the cheap add a leaf I got from Toytec, and they have a lot more flex. Also got an ARB bull bar to replace the falling off stock bumper I had, and installed some rago fabrication ditch light brackets with Baja design's squadron pros driving combo.

    I think it turned out well, took a lot of studying from other members and how they did there's.

    Definitely have more room for the 35s, just need to order tires and wheels and cut front and rear fenders...
    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_69c.jpg LQ+HYuu7RWmnlpfbuIUInA_thumb_681.jpg
    Also got some honest man security locked to my Rago bed stiffeners for my yeti, now that I don't have a cover to hide it.:locked:
    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_660.jpg UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_65e.jpg
    Also forgot to post pics of my Avid bed bars, definitely a more budget option and could be made a lot better.
    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_656.jpg
    They were bent up on a lot of places and I had to use spacers and all sorts of washers, to keep the bed from caving in 1/4" to where the tailgate won't close.
    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_671.jpg
    Other than that there made pretty well. Debating on wether I should get sliders from Avid, Rago or BAMF now?:confused:
    More pictures to come, just need more time off work, also bought a farm jack and mounted it with some u bolts, wing nuts and a few washers.
    Need a way for the jack not to slide when I'm driving though...​

    On Fort Huachuca, there's a ton of trails here and a lot of them haven't been used for at least ten years.
