    I've only gone camping once. Been renovating the complete exterior of the house and finally finished today. A little bit bigger project to tackle by myself than I realized. So hopefully will be able to hit some trails. We are planning a big one for September

    gah, home improvement is something I don't really enjoy (mostly painting, I loathe it), but when it looks the way you want its worth it. I have no doubt the armor will hold up to whatever you throw at it. I've just been exploring trails around Alaska, I feel like we have more atv trails then open trails, which is annoying

    Installed the cab switched I bought from Air On Board, these are OEM style switches and I really like the look, took about a day to install, this included figuring out the wiring and connecting all the harnesses together, taking apart the dash and whatnot.

    Looking good. Makes me mad there is no shipping to Canada option with aironboard.

    Yeah they are pricey but wanted to keep the stock look. Just waiting on a friend to tell me what switches he wants and we will be putting an order in with ottraw

    How did you get those switches? On eBay Air on Board told me that they wouldn't ship to AK

    Got these SOS Concept frame reinforcement plates welded on today and bumper reinstalled. These add a bit more strength to the front frame horn where your bumper attaches. Also moves the bumper out 3/16", which in my case helped out a lot.
