    So here's a few things I've done lately...

    I designed/made this rack and fork mounts to fit 4 bikes in my DC Short bed WITH a truck box...
    To access the truck box, I pull a pin from each side and rotate the crossbar upward, can even do it with 1 or 2 bikes still attached just have to drop the tailgate so they can back up. VERY sturdy and it was free minus a few hours of build time. Not the prettiest thing, still need to paint and make some adjustments but VERY functional

    Broke 2 of my 6 offroad lights so I took them all off and finally got around to working on em... Painted the good ones black and moved 2 down to center for 4 total, then bought 4 fog lights for the top... Only had mounts for 2 center lights so I had to fab a new mount
    Took these as soon as i finished since it was getting way late in the day. Gotta clean up the wiring and get the stickers off the fog lights.

    I've used my winch to tear out 5 tree stumps, 3 were aspens and the other 2 i dunno, worked amazingly well. Saved my inlaws from a lot more cutting and digging.
