    I welded the sliders back on at 3am today and took it wheeling this morning. The sliders and soft top both stood up to a decent beating.

    The Spartan has been awesome; it really has taken this rig to a whole new level. I will say it is some of the best money I have spent on the rig. You are going to want to make sure your clutch is in good shape first; the locker does put more strain on it.

    Yeah; parts were in the cart and then I got what I wanted for Christmas. It may all work out for the better for all parties involved though. More info as it becomes available.

    Looks like this rig is back to getting no attention/parts until my wife is working again. This sucks.

    That rig will out perform just about any rig out there as-is. A testimony the the reliability of Toyota and the drive of a Marine.

    Appreciate it; just means I have to get creative for a little while.
