    Stuff and junk and things...
    They are called droop spacers. OEM shocks generally travel 4.8-5.8" total depending on application and you can reuse a lot of the same parts between makes/models ET/NonET by adding an internal aluminum droop spacer.

    Did Leo ever get his EAF grill? My wife wants to get a rear tire carrier so we can get a EAF grill. :D

    Before it got covered up with a pink trashyreaux.

    I have yet to see another one in the wild. I would guess I have 50 plus meals on it so far, no end in sight.

    I'm half wondering if my OME are the reason I'm not seeing any coilbucket cracks yet. Could also be that my frame is only 4 years old. Also didn't notice any cracks on my LCAs yet but they're pretty dirty.

    It's a cool spot for sure. Was just thinking about heading back that direction this spring.




    Was looking over the trip report again after that pic ended up on the banner, and was reminded how much I love that area.

    My father and I hunted deer in this area back in the 1980's. Very fond memories! After his passing I had to go back and visit. Last year I toured the Four Corners area and found myself out on Jump Up Point!
