    I just picked up an Addicted Offroad tube bumper and your sig inspired me to get a LED bar. I can only fit a 15" bar, but that should be good enough.

    weirdo;).

    How hard is it to get your stock doors to line back up after using your tube doors?

    Sweet build man, been going back and forth on the TG front bumper seeing your added hoop sold me. Just another reason why I could benefit from having a tube bender.

    I'm right there with you. Never ditching my hellas. Definitely saving up to throw a light bar across the top of my windshield, however.

    The lightbar does look great on that bumper though.

    GSMTR at Windrock took my spider gears from me, but the trip was amazing.

    on trail 43 after it had been raining we all came down it but i was wanting to see how far i could go up it. some of the more built rigs wouldn't even try it.
    i gave it 3 tries. on the 3rd try i got to the very top of the trail to the last ledge and when i hit it i caught 2ft of air but i thought it was just the tank climbing over the obstacle so i didn't let off the gas. when i landed instead of snapping a CV i had chipped a tooth or two off the front spidergears. it would click and clank in 4wd but i only thought it was a CV. after changing the CVs i determinded it was def inside the diff and figured it's going to be replaced anyways so i drove on like that. next day the first difficult hill we got to that a handful of people were winching up the gears finally fully stripped and i was then limited to 4wd needless to say it made for a very long weekend. we ended up being stuck on trail 2 and 16 for a total of 14.5 hours between me, and a few others having issues.

    Silas, i still haven't snapped a CV :D

    Memorial Weekend at Harlan was awesome. Pushed the tank more than i ever had and she didn't let up once. Conquered railbed(the trail that ate my locker last year) flytrap, frankenstein, and a few others. great trip, climbed a 5ft vertical wall :D
    for almost bald 37's, i was highly impressed with her.

    just a handfull(check my first post for all pics):
