    I dont know how that would work.

    I’m not sure where you’re going with that second part. It’s a matter of preference at that pointbut if you don’t want OBA then why go ARB?

    No, we didn’t. I have to go out of town next weekend for work and KOH is the following weekend so I decided to stay home.

    Here's the video from my latest trip to Mojave: https://youtu.be/9E0fsUiajxM

    Got pretty sick with the flu, then now the stomach flu so I've been out of it. Been waiting for my bumper for 16 weeks now...I understand people are busy BUT I do wish fabricators would take the extra time sometimes to update their customers (especially if quoted 1/2 the time it's actually going to take). I know if I had a business model, I would be different....But oh well, I bet he has hundreds of orders to take care of so I'll keep my bitchin' to this thread haha.

    That’s a common complaint with the production fabrication companies. Even the bigger ones. High demand with their best effort to not hinder quality.

    Sadly, most individuals who are good at working on things aren’t good at customer service.

    Very true. I’m not impatient and I’ve only reached out to him 1 time the last 16 weeks - Just wanted to double check if he added something to the order haha.

    I also feel bad for the guy who has been waiting to buy my rear and I told him it’d be off by Christmas. Whoops!

    Rear High Clearance from Bruteforce!

    And no, lol. These are $15 eBay lights that I just put to fill the hole. Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about your DM’s haha.

    Going to be taking a huge break from my truck for a while. Focusing heavily on photography and videography to hopefully land a summer internship again, but this time not focused on real estate and on my passion! So until the next update, here's this photo lol.

    First time filming! Unfortunately, some good things are going to be coming to an end. The description of this video should have adequate information of where this build is going to be going..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1xlZy4V32k

    Well...the truck is pending sale...What a sad day. If the first buyer backs out there's 6 or 7 more in line. Good news for me I guess but bad news that I'm going to lose my baby.

    Are you going to continue with YouTube after you sell the truck? I have really enjoyed the videos you’ve made so far.

    That's awesome to hear the kind words, thank you! Lets just say, if all goes as planned...There will be a new build starting. Don't quote me on it though. And if the new build does start, the videos will be of crazy quality.

    There is still a very high chance I drive home in a Rav4 or a Camry. I drove the new Rav4 and it BLEW MY MIND. For a crossover, damn I was impressed. Just going to be a huge change not being able to back the car up until I feel the tire touch the wall lol.

    I do dig the new Rav’s. I think they hit it out of the park with the redesign.
