    Way behind on updates and trip recap. I’ll start feeding in some updates.

    Some goodies showed up awhile back just in time for the east bay mod day at @MJonaGS32 ‘s spot a couple months back. Also big thanks to @Mademan925

    Pelfreybilt 3 hoop steel bumper, hell yeah!

    Need to make sure I’m ready. Snagged some used 700lb springs from Mike at @Pelfreybilt
    Mad props to MJ and Nick helping me at the mod day. Spring compressor def is a plus.

    Main intention was to install the springs to get ready for the bumper but I had it in the truck so why not!

    And a quick cameo from @TK7692

    Looking killer! Def got some much needed use soon after this!

    You know you made some good changes when you drive back like this!

    80031532-9406-45A7-AB02-5D60C0947ACB.jpg

    Took 3 trips to 2 different alignment shops from 2 different techs to get it close enough to hit the trails again. The tech that used to pin it perfect with 3+ caster settings left! Damn...

    Tons of prep left before we headed out to Utah.

    Finally got around to getting the reroute done. Thanks to Exhaust Works in Belmont, CA.

    He tossed me a roll of Nomex to keep things cool and wrapped it up back home. Looking clean!

    Forgot finally removed my sway bar st the mod day. Figured end link was bent (shockingly not broken) anyway.

    Also added some 1” Bora spacers but ran into major rub problems. I think if the old alignment guy could have put me back to 3+ it would have fit. Rubbed at full lock good on the cab mounts that are already chopped. Ended up removing them a few days later.

    Had to do a dirty install at first. Wired up the Baja Design in the fog location. Grabbed a couple eBay specials for the bumper and prinsu rack. One day I’ll get to switching them out but it does the trick and for under $100 for both I can live with it if they break.

    Originally picked up custom switches for an Iggy plate to mount below the HVAC bit scratched that and went big with a switch pro 9100 setup. I didn’t take a photo but ended up 3M taping it for the Utah trip.

    This is Post Utah after my Powertray arrived (the day after I left). Worked out well and super clean. Plan to tidy it up some more bit it will do for now. Set it up with an extra BlueSea 6 fuse for additional accessories and separate power blocks (positive/negative). Makes it super easy to add or connect whenever I have additional accessories.

    Back in May a few of us hit up Utah. A few hit up Overland West but I was not able to make it so headed up with a buddy to meet up in Utah.

    We still need to pull the pictures off our DSLRs but here’s some form my phone. If you ever get a chance to make it to Canyonlands check out the Maze District. I can’t wait to explore the rest of the park.

    Stopped off in Mojave for our first stop. Didn’t get a chance to explore as we rolled in at almost 3 am.

    Quick drive through Zion National Park. Pretty epic but very yuppie in town. Need to go back and exploreFBF4B0E6-A417-496F-ACEB-1E92BBC59EA0.jpg
    BLM and disperses camping is everywhere. Found a nice spot in East Zion. At least 20 other people had the same idea. Another group of Tacoma drove in sometime after us.C06C1086-882E-4687-99A0-E76CB53A4D29.jpg

    We had a little mishap on the trial. After several hours of working together we had her upright with minimal damage and loss of fuel. No injuries.D9F9DC36-2946-4B09-A905-261B552C561E.jpg 31BE9872-C20D-4D5E-B86B-06516786A0A6.jpg

    After Utah that was enough with depending on ice and coolers. I’ll pack a cooler but having a fridge is clutch. No more soggy meat at camp!

    Grabbed the CSI 52 qt fridge from @Mike's Custom Toys and set it up temporarilly in the back seat. I plan to move to the bed when the fridge slide arrived.

    Been slacking on updates but here you go @TRlPPlN.Still need to adjust the headlights some more and possibly reseal one. I fixed the shroud, added new prism halos and prism Daemon eyes. Output is not bad much better than before but not as bright as some other retros I have seen. Started out as a $200 TLC project not bad.
