    I have a frame, axles, etc so believe I do. Roberts will be left as is, but may get duals.

    I didn't realize you had all that "spare". Also it looks like you two are going to kill me trying to play catch up. I'm going to have to make my upgrade choices very closely so as to not get left behind on the trails now.

    If you are going to really use that bumper for off roading then I would leave that piece of sheet metal in there. There is a real good reason for skid/launch plates.

    I'm just talking about using it as a push point to get up and over rocks. I've beat up my skid plate a decent bit using it that way.

    No - the good mod cleaned up the spam that was in front of my post.

    Good to see we have a dedicated thread for trail rigs. How many of us have trail rigs, and how many of those trail rigs could hit the trails today?

    Mine could also. May not run the smoothest, but I'm also sure it will still out do most others.

    Now that I have first gear, I am really itching to go out and see what I can do.

    Smooth running motors is for suckers. I've been running with a blown head gasket for a year now and it was blown when I bought it. I don't know how long it has been blown; but it still runs and climbs so I'm not touching it.

    I'm pretty tied down for the next couple of weekends. Sorry.
