Post up when you are going. Between you and Kevin, I'd like to get out a few more times this year on some of the fun trails.

Then just call me, because I'll go. You really need to at least get that thing started and verify if the power steering gear works and doesnt leak like a sieve. I'm laying awake at night because the suspense is killing me

lol it'll be a while...good lord I looked around today and the list just doesn't seem to be getting any shorter

rear shocks, driver side footwell, passenger side footwell, paint, cut the driver side fender, mount the hood, mount everything permanent, herculine the interior, nevermind mounting a fire extinguisher, catch can....man o man my head is going to explode!

oh and the leaks, and the tuning....

someday, but at least for now plenty of time before Moab. I've decided I will be at CM this year.

little more today, I got both corners tubed in. Next step will be to add expanded in there to fill the gaps (I can also see better through there ) I'm also going to add some sort of tube for a dead pedal on each side.

I put in a piece to fill in the A-pillar area, I'll do the DS next.

slllllooooooooooooooooooooooooow...

Although I bet I spent an hour today collectively wandering around the garage looking for a tape measure or a sharpie



Oh an Travis turns out I've only got one of those 2 sticks left, let me know when you need them otherwise I'll replace them when I'm done

got the other fender mounted and cut, hoping to get the hood mounted and done this weekend, as well as the shocks in the rear so I can get it back down on its own weight.

I got my wheels yesterday, 17" racelines, and I also picked up some 3" LED pods from a vendor on pirate, they will fit nicely in the fenders where the corner markers go. I figure between that and hopefully getting a 30" LED lightbar here soon I should have enough for night runs

Those LED's should be nice.

30" bar eh? You and Root will be a pair! J/K, it'll be a great addition.

Updates look great. I know how much time goes into each of these little steps, very impressive work!

its sort of got the nickname "one eyed monster" for the longest time since all I ever had were stock headlights (terrible) and after bouncing around one of them always fell out (more terrible). It'll be a change having good lights. I don't generally wheel at night but with good lighting I could be convinced

Freaking sweet dude
I love it, I might just have to come see it.
I'm off work Sunday's and Wensday's if you need a hand. I also might need to borrow your bender later this year unless I find a power unit for mine

I'm usually around, and yes I could really use a hand. Most everyone offers, and then no one is around so I get to do it all myself
