D70 Standard Duty ARB, 4.10 and down, it needs the least amount of machine work to fit.

A few more pics, I stretched my cage back ~ 4" as well as the back seat to give the kids more room. Ordering proper seats for the kids after Xmas. I didn't even bother trying to make the soft top work, it fits perfect without the frame, I couldn't have done better if I tried.





Still driving somehow - private land in MN


Iron Range OHV park

Thanks! I'm truly blessed to have so much wheeling near where I live, it's a dream come true. The guys that I wheel with are awesome, donate lots of time to clean existing trails and work on expansions of other trails, bummed I missed the last trail cut over Thanksgiving.


Planning to redo my skid plates this winter and cover them in plastic, hen maybe think about steering upgrades after that.

Looks good Andrew. You find the plastic helps that much? Are the guys spending big bucks on UHMW or cheaper Nylon or Nylatron?

I keep hoping I can justify a business trip up there but we now have a different guy handling that product/area. Even if I come up it will probably only be for a couple days so the timing may never work to fit in the drive time.

Use vacation time then Jim, well worth a 12hr drive. Absolutely incredible wheeling up here. Only place truly better has been South Dakota, but SD isn't "that" much better IMHO.

It's UHMW I'm getting a smoking deal on it used from a friend that gets the old stuff from work. Works for sure, it truly slides on rocks, can't wait to do the skids. I have a case of beer into my boatsides UHMW, 2 cases at most for my skids.

Definitely! Well worth the drive for sure, you wouldn't be disappointed. It's actually in Gilbert, MN called Iron Range OHV.

no, I'm going to make new subframe to try and gain some clearance back and shave a few pounds. Haven't liked how I had to drop my skid 2" when I did the Rubi case so I'm gonna try to get that back.
