    Got an update from Tim at elite offroad. Front bumper shipped mondayish so should be in in about 2 weeks. He hasn't shipped the sliders yet, but just sent them to be powder coated. Still waiting on an eta for my Rigid D2's.

    Front bumper should be here soon. Sliders haven't been picked up from powdercoat yet. Rigids should be here soon also. I finished painting the rear bumper a couple days ago and put it on today. [​IMG]

    Let me at least get the bumper and sliders on so it will be more of a fair trade for you! :beer:

    I ordered switches for the rigid d2s and to do in cab winch controls. Also got my 25 ft of 1/0 wire to relocate the winch solenoid. Just waiting for the bumper.....

    They said he is an English, but I'm thinking he's a neopolitan. He's got way to many skin folds on his legs to be an English and he's solid muscle.

    I SOOOOOO wanted one after we had to put our 13 yr old lad mix down. But i could not convince the wife to let me spend the $$$ on one (she is a shelter cat person). So we settled for our Aluskey

    I used rustoleum high temp primer and paint. Its holding up real well. I also left the heat shield off. I figured that the 4 cylinder didn't really produce enough heat to justify the extra $65 for the new heat shield. I could've modified the old one, but decided against it. Also the guy that I bought the kit from in Washington state agreed that the heat shield was a bit overkill.

    We have adopted the 2 mastiffs we have had(including this one). So cost is kinda relative but they are not cheap to feed or care for. At least we only paid $350 to the rescue. Food is ~$75 to $100 a month and vet bills are minimum $350+. But older mastiffs are a blast. Just short lived. Our last one made it to 10 yrs old and was with us for 4.

    This one is 5 yrs old. Hopefully he makes it to at least 10.

    Great thread so far!
    Is your Elite being fabbed with square for light cut outs? Or are you putting the D2's into the round hole?
