Just got done trimming the rear fender wells, fixing my leaking brake line at the proportioning valve, and putting temp bump stop spacers in the back to keep the tires out of the fender until I get the proper length limit straps. Pack up a couple tools and some spares tomorrow and load up for Saturday.

Good times saturday. Steering box is leaking worse, couple more dings and dents but nothing major. Springs and bump setting change was night and day. Way more stable now. Ran winch hill the puss way after the 2 big rocks, Long crawl one direction all the way, "impossible" hill in the center, Python through the center at the end, Big ugly and Hump trail. Tried running Long crawl the other way and got hung up. Got high centered on Rhino stopper and in one spot on Hump trail also. Need to get steering fixed, not being able to turn is getting old.

Nobody ever catches the rev limiter bouncing into a rock for an abrupt stop from 10 mph This is puss, I'm ashamed to say I was driving

It's fun, makes it worth the time put in. Wish it was done though, kinda burnt out right now. It's summer time now, I'll get back at it in the fall.

I ended up buying blanks that ended up not fitting right, spending a week cutting them and still not really being happy with how they turned out. If I had to do it over, I'd buy corner stretch guards and save myself the hassle. I am running a RCI fuel cell sunk into the body behind my rear seat. Next time I would just put it behind the seat in the cab and make a cover for it. I ended up eating up the space I need for decent rear shock angle and sway bar the way I did it. All well, live and learn If you want to do rear corner guards down the road, I'll help you out
