    Yeah. The hand grinder was a bit of a pain. But I took my time to get everything straight. testing is always required:D

    say's the lucky bastard who just put in an arb locker! i'm jelly, not gonna lie.

    i might take you up on that though. i'll be reinforcing the hitch before it goes on the truck or gets any paint. if i'm lucky i'll have the skids done at the same time so i can paint them too.

    :duel: well I have one more pic to post up here in like an hour, then I will be back to daydreaming. Not too much left to do though, other than wheel the piss out of her.
    :cheers: cool just let me know about the mod day. I need to get some work done on my sliders. Next week will be busy with truck stuff :)

    Looks great man! I need your resourcefulness to rub off on me to save me money. I keep paying other people to do mods for me. I have done a fair amount but not enough. At least I will have done my sliders.

    No need to grind I dont think. You can just scratch it off with some steel wool. Its just surface rust.
