    Ok so couldn't take the white storage hatches anymore. So put a coat of bedliner on them. Much better

    The wife and I and our 2 dogs took the Yoda on a RV trip to Utah. Zion, Bryce, MOAB, Arches, Antelope Canyons, Coyote Buttes "The Wave" we were 2 of 10 people to win the walking lottery for the day. Only 3 numbers were pulled to make the 10 people. And a few other places in between.. Took 14 days was fun lots of sight seeing but I was able to do some off roading also....

    truck is turning out awesome
    great work

    been eye'ing one of those brute force hybrid's for my 95.5 for a long time now
    just dropped $800 on some duratracs for the winter
    but the next major amount of cash i drop is hopefully on one of them

    do you happen to know the weight of the bumper? (i've sent a message or two to Billy, but he's hard to get a hold of)
    curious as to whether or not my stock coils are going to support it well

    Thanks..
    Its not bad I would say 90-100lbs. Your stock springs will sag a bit.

    Decided to go with the taller 255/85-16 BFG mud terrains I liked the DuraTracs but they dont come in 255.. going to have to do a bit of trimming so they don't rub.

    looking great bud. Have you done any local socal trails yet? Been wanting to hit some more dirt lately. By the way, your fab work is pretty awesome.

    What are you going to do with your old tires?

    How are you liking the 255/85's and stock gears with the 5 speed? Or too soon to tell?

    Little slow off the line.. I am going to change gear ratio 488 front and rear and add an ARB locker in the front. Talked with they guys at East coast gear supply. Hope to be doing this soon...
