    It'll mount to the rear liftgate like this

    And the spidertrax are already making everything dirty!

    No, alfalfa will live on on my buddies 4Runner!

    Removed my HydroCarbonFilter

    2d853969_fa41dfe7f74f9d5c6e50ab37b5b7467f14976c2f.jpg

    All it really seemed to do was restrict airflow to the engine. I noticed a slight gain in throttle response after removal

    And picked up a Westin Bull Bar for $50!

    My buddy found me a set of 5 brand new 255/75/17 BFGoodrich Mud Terrain's that came off a 2012 Rubicon for $400. Looks like I'll have some new tires on this bad boy soon!

    Finally got the last piece of my roof rack puzzle in yesterday!

    I picked up 2 THULE Prologue Fork Mount bike racks from a friend a couple of months ago and after letting them fall to the wayside with other projects I finally ordered the fit kit from Backcountry.com. The two months sitting in the garage did a little damage to the racks but fortunately I have a bent one I can pull parts from. The first thing I did was swap out the rusted bolts with ones from my donor rack.

    The instructions for the Ride-On Adapter were pretty simple and it took maybe 45 minutes to get everything put together.

    Here is a shot of them on the truck

    So, now with everything installed a few of my friends and I decided to hit the trails to find out if it would actually hold my bike.

    The black bike is my Trek 3700 while the red one belongs to my little brother.

    So far so good. I've driven about 30 miles with the bikes on today and everything appears stable and secure!

    It's a 4' Firestik with a 3" spring and a 3" Quick Disconnect. So about 4 1/2 feet
