    Tube goes on the outside, the nipple goes inside the tube. I dont think I have any pics and they will be hard to take but I can try tomorrow if its not raining.

    Fumotos kick ass. Have them on both the rigs, and the skids have plenty of clearance to them.

    My single has the same weight issues. I feel like its going to be the case with any single swingout. I've heard a lot of good things about at the helm bumpers. Is there a dual option sing out? Not getting a dual swing out is the only thing I regret about my rear bumper. I will either replace the bumper or mod my current one to make it a dual swing out instead of single. I'm not a fan of the single swing out due to the room needed to open it and the weight with the spare and 2 5g containers on it.Now that I'm learning to weld modding my current to a dual is likely going to be the route I go.

    I love the front bumper I have of his. I might as well go with the rear to match. Maybe i'll see what I can do to reinforce or modify it before it gets paint or down the line somewhere. I doubt he would do a double swing out but i'll ask, his customer service is top notch and I like giving my money to the little guys. Also not a fan of the rotopax so I would have to get a jerry box or see if he can add that instead.

    That sounds so good. Really just camping, my trucks not in any condition to wheel. Still need new front springs and would like my new front bumper on. My winch isn't even wired up right now...
    I'm thinking it's going to be a while but more is starting to open up in TX so hopefully I'm wrong. I really don't understand why remote camping is shut down in so many places. That's got to be the best form of social distancing.

    Best camping in summer/hot weather is in higher elevation. Sadly Colorado is still really locked down. I will likely try and get some camping in regardless of heat this summer since we missed out on the best spring weather this year. I havent heard about buff but I have heard south of it there is Ozark NF https://www.fs.usda.gov/osfnf and a little farther south is Ouachita NF https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/ouachita/home. Since they are National Forests and not National/State parks theres a lot of free remote camping opportunities. I want to get to both but not sure when I will get there. I still want to get up and explore Broken Bow, Ok more.

    Put some new motor juice in the 4R this afternoon and tried to fit up @MellyMel 's new steel CBI front skid... but her transmission crossmember had different plans. Two of the four mounting bolts for her existing aluminum RCI skids had broken loose the welded nuts inside the crossmember... so I get to cut it all apart later. Fun.
