    Lol no it was just easier to install with the grill off. Should be easy to remove with the grill on.

    Once I install the Mobtown plate bumper with my Smittybuilt I’ll see how this mini mod might work. Great idea to protect the winch and keep the spool dry/debris free.

    Your Truck looks great either way!! I have never been a "Fan" of caps, toppers, campers or whatever they are called, but I have always used them on my trucks because they are so useful in keeping things out of the weather, personnel choice

    Why are y'all chopping the pipe? For off roading and not wanting to fold it up? Just curious. Thanks

    Just an observation but it looks like your brake lines are limiting your downward travel on your rear end. Check the gap in the picture between the bump stops and the plates on your rear diff. I need to lengthen mine as well.

    Thanks for the model info. Are you stock rear suspension pulling that thing or in not what’s your setup? I’m planning to get something similar and I’m trying to plan ahead on rear suspension setup. Thanks in advance!

    What airbags are those and are those the daystar cradles? I’m considering airbags. How do you like them? Any off-road issues?

    Installed a full size 255/75R17 spare on matching Rock Warrior wheel in the stock location. Did some precision adjusting of the guides using BFH.

    I saw here or a vendors site somewhere but where or who was it that sold the ditch light brackets that had 2 mounting spots on a single bracket. Was thinking bout mounting cb/ham antenna on them along w/ ditch lights.
    I can't think who it was for the life of me. Better yet are they even available anymore.

    Lines aren’t limiting, at least 6 inches more before they are taunt, my leafs are my limiting factor. I don’t have bump stops, those are floating airbags

    No issues off-road, just adjust pressure if you want more travel. I’ve been running bags with cradles for over 7 years

    They are the Firestone bags
