    Lost track many, many mods ago.
    Great looking truck. Gotta ask though, what's with the chain on the front? I mean obviously recovery but personally I think it might get in the way off road, i.e. stumps and rocks and roots catching on it....

    I've never had it snag on anything before, I guess that could happen though.

    *Update*
    Ordered the Budbuilt IFS skid and got it in yesterday. I've got it painted just have to install it. I will be ordering the midplate and x-member soon.
