    I don't think so, I'll probably use what I can from it to build a rear bumper

    The rear bumper project went well. I tried two different methods of a pivot before finding flange bearings. :facepalm:The first photos show my original idea of using a large diameter bolt aaannnd failed. I tried a heavy duty hinge next but that also failed. But then, then I remembered flange bearings. I used two of the 1 inchers with a solid 1 inch rod in between.:thumbsup:

    First trail of the season! Took a short trip to some hills in Idaho and found a couple creek crossings and a lot of mud. It was awesome, the only down side is I had to finish removing my spare tire from its mount because the weld broke:/ Also the little plastic feet supporting the canopy basket decided to fail so I'll have to mount that back up somehow.

    Snorkel installed! I used the Hilux 167 snorkel and it sits flush everywhere except the very front where there is a small gap. This is an easy fix, but honestly it's not even bad enough to worry about in my opinion.

    These ones: http://www.ebay.com/itm/4x-18W-4-Cr...ash=item19e666aac8:g:LOEAAOSwQJ5USM3d&vxp=mtr

    So far they've been great, all four were actually 6000K white so I went to Walmart and bought that 3M adhesive tail light lens repair stuff and cut it to size. I'm actually about to change it up back there to make it a little cleaner looking. I'm taking all four off and replacing the blinkers with 4" single row amber leds and moving my 30" light bar to the back so I can get rid of the aux. reverse lights. I might move them up for ditch lights or something.

    It really wasn't that bad, the mounting itself was surprisingly easy. Just drill the three 1/2" holes in each door frame and lightly hammer in the little included inserts.
