    Remove mudflaps, Plasti dip badges/ lower val/ and grill, Plasti dip wheels, 5% tint all around, Tinted tails and 3rd, 55w driving lights in rear, Blue LED light strip in bed, Blue LEDs in cab/ cup holders...
    I said goodbye to my flares on the first trip out on 285s, I fixed/trimmed them up and redid my rear bumps this last weekend, the rear shouldn't rub anymore.

    Are you still going to remove 2" off the flares?

    haha that is how I feel... But being as the truck is still not even a year old I will be coming up with a good looking solution to creating bigger wheel wells.

    New springs are on and it bumped me back to stock height. I also picked up this sweet tire carrier form RadTaco914.

    You can tell its a little taller, but it didn't make a huge difference.

    Thanks!

    Yeah next year Moab isn't far away I gotta toughen up! lol Only problem I can't figure out is the running out of money issue. I am working on it though!

    :cheers: Nice the skids are awesome! I definitely put mine to use in Moab with the serious lack of ground clearance I had!

    Peter, have you had any problems with the VR-10000S? Just researching winches at this point, but it seems like this would be a good choice. I've heard good things about the VR-8000S, but I would like to have the capability of the 10K power.

    So far so good. I had two leads come loose once and thought something was wrong with it. Once I tightened them down it worked.

    Honestly, unless you are going to use it every weekend I think the VR-10,000 is a great winch. I know I am only going to use it maybe 10 times a year and wasn't worth the next step up. I wouldn't run anything other than a Warn.

    Copy, thanks for the info. I definitely will only need the "entry-level" winches, but still unsure if the extra $80 is worth it for the 10000lb capability vs the VR-8000S. Guess it's not that much of a difference price wise for another ton of winch capability.
