    both sides (2 mounts, 4 bolts, 2 brackets). I thought it was one for 65$ and thought that was unreal but its a package of 2.

    Good to know. That’s how I planned on mounting my HAM radio. Thanks for letting me know I was like “$65 for one is pretty steep”

    Had a fun filled day that ended up costing me $600 when all I wanted to do was fluid film the damn truck.

    I started by pulling the skids. Back two gave me no fuss. Look, I turned my once straight reinforced transmission skid into a taco!

    When I went to remove the IFS, one welded nuts that the back bolt threads into broke off inside the frame. No other way to get it out than with a sawzall, so I got to go buy a shiny new toy.

    Got the bitch out finally.

    Once out, I noticed my 1.5 year old steering rack was blowing it's load everywhere. I aint even mad with what I put it through. Luckily there's a 3 year warranty on it so a new one is on the way, but I had to buy it and they'll refund me when they get the old rack back. Look at that mess.

    Ok back to the skids. Bought these weld in nuts and some beefier bolts and got them in. Not pretty but it'll hold. I'll reinstall skids next week after I get my new steering rack in. That'll give me time to repaint them and stuff.

    While I was waiting for my paint on the new nuts to dry, I decided to clean my winch line. I'll respool it tomorrow. What a day.

    No problem. I only thought of it after removing the overloads about a month ago. If you need more clarification let me know.

    LOL someone just said the same thing in my build thread. I discovered a slight oil leak as well, so I'll really be set.

    I've never F.F. my truck. Frame still looks brand new. Here in AZ salt goes on food, and not roads.

    I know what the salt is like. I lived in northwestern PA for a few years. Nothing better than driving around, move the floor mat and watch the road under you. Did that in my cousins plow truck.

    Did the 921 led reverse light swap yesterday and the difference is all I needed. The back up camera now has enough light to function at night.
