    This and that...
    Found them on Amazon. I used a little red loctite on the zerks and on the four bolts that attach the sway bar to the frame. I had to watch a couple of videos to make sure those mounts were in the right direction and the sway bar. Also be careful with the rubber on the links when you are installing. It's a tight fit an I may have cut the rubber. It's still holding all the grease. It will be easy to replace later on, only $18. Just go slow. You'll also have to remove one of the cross members running to the bumper to slide the sway bar in. You can remove both but was able to do it with just one of the two taken off.

    For my needs its perfect but I think for the money, you get more value and likely longevity out of a Vagabond Drifter.

    After the last couple of days I fabbed up the cross tube for the Hammer Hangers. Fun project I took my time as i now apparently have plenty. I made the plates, got all the parts together, tacked the tube in place, and welded it up. Then painted and installed.

    Very nice. It’s way to clean under there. How do you do that?

    I lay under the truck with a power washer every time I take it to get dirty. It also gets power washed every few times I give it a bath. Nothing fancy just my maintenance

    Built a sleeping platform. I've been meaning to put one in for a while now. I'll only use it occasionally, but it'll be nice to have when I need it.

    Finished pulling weeds sooner than expected and took advantage of a break in the rains we’ve been experiencing here in Southern Cal. Washed and tried out a new ceramic spray that I haven’t had a chance to use. Very impressed by the outcome.
