    damn, I can't figure out what is causing it. I'm hosting off Google photo and I can see all of them so i have no indication of a differentiator. Is anyone else having this problem?

    @JeepAndrew sent me some fap material so I can stay busy in this hotel room. He got the tire swing down latching mocked up. He still has a lot to do with it but he gist has begun :drool:

    We made sure to leave clearance for a 285 width, 34" diameter tire so I can grow up and put my big boy pants on some day after a regear

    @JeepAndrew sent another pic for me to drool over. The Stainless steel hardware I bought for him to use is galling after first use so I just spent an hour shopping 1/4-20 hardware on McMaster. Can you tell I'm an engineer?

    I used to live 15-20 mins away from a McMaster location outside of Atlanta so I got used to a plethera of wholesale priced hardware selection. Turns out theres one across the border in commiefornia so, while I do have to pay for shipping now... it arrives basically next day. The hardware I just ordered will be on Andrew's door step by end of day Monday via standard shipping. Sweet!

    I see a little paint on the passenger side below the hinge. Is that going to be the color for the whole thing? Looks good.

    It'll mos likely be a satin black Chassis paint in hopes of matching the powder coat on the jerry can holder (and future ARB front). What's on the one corner is etching primer I believe

    Let see if this works pasting a video in here. Gotta share cause I was so excited when I saw it:



    Sorry for Potato quality. @JeepAndrew sent a nice quality video on FB messenger which I then had to download to my phone because web based FB won't let you save videos in messages to your computer. then I had to upload it to youtube to embed. somewhere across all of that it got compressed lol

    I was wondering what that reverse tire mount thing was all about. Is your T'roo going over the Maxtrax?

    In addition to allowing Pin mounting of maxtraxs rather than tire straps, the reverse mount also swings down off the swingout so that the tire will lay horizontal at waist height, allowing much easier tire changes. Not that a 32" on alloys is that heavy, though!

    Trasharoo may go between tire and door...maybe over the maxtrax. I don't have one yet so I'm not positive :p
