    As much as I love it, I want something with a single tube tucked up really high along the fender cut/back with a hitch in the middle. My local fab guy builds some cool crawler bumpers & that’s what I want.

    I removed the blower motor yesterday and can now confirm that it is 5.5mm.

    There was just a small leaf in the blower causing the vibration. All fixed.

    Heavy=Protected. Stock skids are garbage. Ask me how I know. If you don’t rock crawl, then heavy skids are useless. if you do crawl then you need to protect the truck.

    I have already bent the inner tie rods in my steering rack and warped the seals, dented the shit out of my stock skids, LCAs, etc. So I too have added full steel skids and steel bumpers. Next will be upgraded shackle hangers and steering.

    My truck is getting heavier and heavier. But so what? That’s how I use it. If mpgs matter get a Prius. Otherwise fuck it, it’s a truck, use it.

    I am finishing up my "add an outlet" mod today. Completed the 400W anytime mod yesterday and swapped the 400W/100W push button (with the Diff Lock) as it was hidden by the steering wheel, due to my seating position.

    I haven’t heard of a bag that does that...but you might consider making a mixture of cedar hamster/pet shavings, peat or sphagnum moss, and a little lightweight potting soil. Then drop a handful in before and after. The compost mix absorbs most of the moisture and the cedar acts as a deodorant. The mix is fairly lightweight but requires some space to store. Did this for a long time before moving to a two piece portable flusher.

    Ok, that sucks but it's really kind of funny. Most people can't even get that damned nut off because of rust. Yours literally came loose and made a break for it!!

    Picked up a complete grill from an SR for $25. I’m gonna attempt a grill insert, then transfer it to my MGM surround.

    Removed the seats and carpet. Vacuumed the floor and installed the correct wire protector for the power inverter
    Reinstalled the carpet and seats, vacuumed the carpet and floor mats.
    I was going to wash the bed to remove the mildew but it got too hot.

    On a side note, my 22ga. wire came in (that was quick).

    It’s definitely not professionally built and heavy as a sob but this is the first prototype

    if this works I’ll make a second out of all aluminum.

    Do you have the fridge to test the weight with those sliders?

    Yes. They are 250 lb slides and we’ve already put the dometic on the regular slide the issue I’m having right now is the pivot points. I’m hitting where the slides are bolts to the steel and the only thing I can think of doing is riveting them on.
