    Not currently. It seized up on our last trip to Moab. Not sure why but it popped a fuse. Bought two replacement fuses and it popped them instantly without turning on on the final fuse. It's on the list of things to replace. Payday is just around the corner tho ;)
    That perfect, Thanks.

    We spoke about it last time we camped. Mines getting on 5years old? His was much newer and deserved replacement. Mines old and hasn't had an easy life.

    After knocking the loose rust off
    I used the
    1) POR-15 degreaser
    2) POR-15 metal prep
    3) POR-15 paint.

    now I have to spray the POR-15 top coat still

    POR-15 is the best rust proofing system I have ever used.

    I also sprayed “Fluid Film” inside the frames once the POR-15 was dry.

    What a badass weekend! (Pic heavy post)

    Started out Friday afternoon with my wife and my good buddies @Blue Canary @Motofox and @essjay. Headed up the hill and found a pretty epic spot.



    @CemenTRDgen met up with us Saturday morning and we set out to explore Long Valley. The area we were camping in.




    Headed out back to the highway, to run over Sonora Pass towards Leavitt Lake.



    On the way back to camp, we stopped off and supported the Dardanelle Resort (decimated b the Donnell Fire a couple years ago) by getting some snacks, ice cream, beer (and Jen got herself a sweatshirt)



    @TacoJohn4x4 met up with us Saturday night, and we chilled around the camp fire.



    Then Sunday was a big day... Niagara Rim Trail was waiting for us to run it.



    And run it we did... all with minimal damage to rigs



    Wrapped it up by airing down and talking a little shit about the day.

    Started my bed swap… amazed to find only a few spots of light surface rust. Tomorrow should have the new bed on, trail gear rear bumper installed, tinted tail lights in and then start working on a drawer system for the bed. Then pop the canopy back on and time to go wheelin in BC.

    The big vent won't get louvers, just a mesh and a flap on the leading edge. It's placed right behind my radiator and in the low pressure zone so that it increases the pressure differential across the radiator. When it rains, I can actually see water shooting out of there, so I haven't tested it with streamers yet.

    I got it pretty close to being together. Need to change the diff fluids and get it aligned.

    Still don’t think the engines running 100%, timing seems high and it’s making a new noise since I got it back from the shop. Still need to investigate.

    Pick up a set of Neutral Denisty (ND) filters for the drone, makes the color really pop without any editing! Totally worth it.

    What do you mean seat options. I just pretty much got the cheapest Cipher Auto Seats cloth. They are out of the black one. So I got black with red. Here is the shot of interior. I might have posted it earlier in this thread. But here it is:

    Yeah.

    Ive been thinking about doing this with my hood. And I figured it would suck out some heat soaked air. When the hoods up and the fan is engaged you can feel a strong steam of air right above the fan.

    I just want a vent/louver that can be grafted in, flows with body lines, and looks factory.

    For those who have had the entire dash out. Is there a enough room to add MLV sheet rubber to be back of the firewall from the floor to the bottom of the windshield?

    Edit: I’m other words would I be wasting my time pulling it all apart to add sound deadening?

    I think it would probably be a bit of a waste of time. The dash is mostly just a shell. Even with it out, there's not much more you can get to than what you can now.

    Looking at a few google pictures that’s what I figured.

    Maybe adding something to the underside of the dash?
