    Lost track many, many mods ago.

    Yeah it's been a long ride but it's been educational for sure.

    Bump! Let's see some pics of that bedrack on your truck. I know you've got it painted by now.

    I'll load them up tonight. the girlfriend took some for me but the quick tie downs aren't back on as well as the shovel mount. I'm not happy with the paint that I used so I'm thinking of taking it down and having it powder coated. I didn't use an enamel paint and it scratched through to bare metal in a couple places while moving it in the garage. I was going for a semi gloss black to match the paint I am going to put on the front and rear bumpers and the sliders.

    BTW I fricken love the craftsmanship and engineering you have done on this thing. there are so many things that you thought through and planned for. Some would think it's just a rack but the fact that the tie downs are level with the top of the rack, the rack is perfectly flat on top, it is perfectly square and the angles are perfect.

    Excellent work Adam just excellent!!!!

    I also wired in some LED's for underneath to illuminate the bed while unloading and loading.

    Wow can’t believe it's been 2 years!

    The tires did great for those two years but I went with a skinny 255/85 KM2 for this year's Moab trip.

    I also bought a weld it yourself rear bumper from a guy on here...isu2014.

    I am good friends with thefatkid he and I have the same bumper but I didn't get the tire carrier option. I have some Ideas about exo protection that I want to do to tie in my own tire carrier.

    I don't have a garage right now though so it's going to be tough to get it done before Rock therapy.

    Put some Rigid dual fog lights in the bumper. Had the flood pattern at first and didn't like it. So I bought another set with the Spot pattern and I like it much better. I live in the mountains and I use them all the time even though they aren't street legal, the yellow covers dull them down enough that no one flashes me.

    I will get some pics loaded.

    Hey Adam, Still loving the rack! Lots of people comment on it. I need to repaint it still though. Hopefully, before Moab but no promises.
