    Thanks man:thumbsup:

    yea, now if ARB could only have done that from the beginning! amazing what a cutting wheel and some hand files could do


    shop's actually the toyota dealership by me where my buddy works..he was able to take it in on his day off and chop it up using his cut-off wheel...he did a grade A job i must say on the cut for using a cut-off wheel, it would be hard to get a plasma to cut that clean on a curve..hand files were mainly used to round the cut edges

    Just did mine too. My densos looked similar as far as wear. I went with NGK this time to see if there is any difference.

    i will be curious to see how they perform against each other too

    this was my first time swapping out my plug myself so i did not have a chance to compare the NGK vs Densos that came factory (when they put both kinds in for some reason)

    thanks man...likewise, you're truck is kicking some serious ass right now..love to see that beast develop

    let me know when you're in the state, we have a great variety of trails to check out. i'm sure most can be compared to trails up by you...from water crossings to rock crawling to hill climbs to shelf roads highly exposed...

    just recently hit up a few trails that we loaded with water crossings that would be common to what you see up there...

    I'll hit you up when I come down a couple of my best friends live in CO (all jeep guys) near Denver so I always try and pass through and spend some time there. The trails look real similiar to here from the pics and what I recall riding dirtbikes around a few years ago I want to go wheeling there bad. Thanks for the compliments on the truck it was at a stand still for a while so it has been good to get some stuff finished and other projects underway.

    Hopefully I'll be in CO at the same time as you. If we both have the same CBI bumpers we must have a similar taste in off roading....If you don't mind me tagging along :eek: :D
