    It looks natural with that rake. Not bad at all. A swing out would help though with both of those minor issues. #swingoutlyfe :thumbsup:

    Also, do you need a door for the small cubby? I know someone that has a spare.

    Looking at the pics again it's not as bad as I thought, the rake. I'll bring the front end up like an inch so it's not quite as drastic. It's funny you mention the swingout, that same thought crossed my mind lol


    Those cubbies don't accept doors. I'm probably going to remove them and just rivet a plate over the hole. The cubbies constantly fall out offroad because they're just loosely resting in there.

    Could always do something cool with them. I'm not cool so I can't think of anything.

    Perfect. Or a projector and screen for some camping movies. That's what camping is all about, right?

    OMG! If you add a swing out now I will never let you live it down!!!!!! :rofl:

    So the cubbies on the 2nd Gen are just an open area? No doors on either side? I'd say it would be a good place to add a water port quick connect setup but there's no fucking point at all to that unless you just wanted to water flowers along the trail, or bath Tony. Because obviously the only thing wet Betty sees these days is an occasional mud bath, rain, or Crick/River crossing splashes. Poor Betty. She's just destined to being a dirty old shorty from now on I guess, and you're basically just her gigolo! :D

    The cubbies above the wheel wells are just an open area. Those are only on earlier second gens.

    We also have the cubbies with doors just like the third gens. Those got removed when I did the bob. They're sitting on a shelf with your name on them.

    Cool, Thanks :thumbsup:

    I figured I would snag them when I get the springs from Nick. Who refuses to give me his email address to pay him until then. He's a dork.

    Hey, the other day you suggested I send an email to Joe. Is that the same as going on the site and contacting them?

    Yeah it all goes to the same place. He's really busy right now though and is going through some personal stuff too so it may take a bit for a reply.
