    I know, right!

    I actually had hoped to get a few more trips in, but all that early snow had other ideas!

    Wish the scenery was as good down here as it is out there. Nice pics!
    I'm planning an expedition type trip out there at some point in the future, so I may be picking your brain later lol.

    Thew a pair of 18W LEDs on the front, took off the 500s, looks a little goofy, but only temporary until they get put in a steel bumper. I got a pair of amber covers as well for inclement weather.

    Also took off the skids for the winter to give them a fresh cost and cut a little weight off or the winter. I would say I got good use out of them this summer :eek:

    Well, they have done their job, but I ran into a few issues throughout their use. First was the transfer case skid that is not compatible with my Shrock sliders, so I had to chop them up a bit which significantly weakened them and resulted in bending, but not to the point of any damage to anything else.

    Second, about 2/3 of the mounting points weld-o-nuts in the factory mounting spots either stripped out or broke off, so I had to come up with some creative solutions to keep them tight, but they worked out in the end.

    I am going to pickup a welder this winter and reinforce them as well as come up with some new mounting solutions, which should get everything back to snuff. So, I would say they worked out for me, but I had to do some work on them (through no fault of the design or manufacture) to keep them running, but some may have had issue if they beat on them as hard as I did and did not do any upkeep on them.

    I should also mention that Josh said he would give me a new crossmember if I trashed the cut up one, which I plan to take him up on and weld my sliders on, after a body lift, which will fix the problems that I had with interference.
