    I got around to fixing the wiring for my water meth setup to where it doesn't dump fluid into my intake with the key off ignition.
    Which means it's finally time to clean the filter since it was consistently moist from the water meth running down into it. Makes a good dust magnet.

    This is the bottom side of the filter

    The relay was just wired wrong. Could have sworn I tried wiring it that way when I initially set it up, but guess not.

    Just 3 tons of fun!!!

    I've thought about doing something like that. The Long Travel arms are a pain in the ass. The only way you can get the tire to lift with them is to be under the LBJ, but then you're too close to the tire.

    BUT... judging by how tore up the bottom of my LCAs are already. Those things probably wouldn't end up staying attached for the entire wheeling season. Cool idea though.

    Did some drop testing with the forklift to see if I have any travel left on the table in the rear.

    Need to shorten my bumpstop spacers a little bit to take up the last little bit of travel on the shocks before they hit the rubber bumper

    Another idea I had toyed about with was doing a big scab plate to the bottom with a nut welded on the inside for a 9/16-5/8 bolt that I could thread a similar jack point onto.
