    Love the build man. Bumper is looking great. I miss having access to a plasma table.

    Thanks, and wish I had a plasma table. I’m currently cutting on a water jet.

    Going to pull the trigger on a radiator this week. How's your 2nd one holding up? The only thing that worries me about the Champion radiators is quality control.

    So far its holding up good. They came out with a newer design. Hopefully they fixed any issues that the old one had. So far no one had issues with newer style ones to my knowledge.

    Cool, thanks. Any issues running too cool in the WA winter?

    That must be an old design or something because my All Pro bumper clears my auto radiator.

    I noticed that after I bought it. I think I actually have a newer design since yours is what they put on their rig. I just bought mine new in January.

    All-Pro was purchased. Quality control seems like it is still an issue. I've heard mixed reviews on people buying All-Pro bumpers over the past year and having fitment issues.

    Changed my fuel filter, looks like it was original. Very dirty.

    Whoa gas everywhere. Did you not depressurize the fuel system before removing? When I replaced my filter, I only had a little trickle of fuel from the lines.

    No I depressurize it. Took out the EFI relay and cranked the engine for a few seconds.
    All that wet area is actually liquid wrench, there was very little gas leak.

    Had to change out inner and outer tie rods.
    One of the old one was bent and all where really loose. Now time to get another alignment.
