congrats, you'll love it!!

hard to tell from the pic, but you'll probably want to drill a hole through the stud (at the knuckle) and run a cotter pin through it so it can't come completely apart.

Can you show me how to cut hair?

I need a better paying job

I think a tailgate should be on your list of where to spend money, that thing is hit.

There will either be a tube tailgate made for it to match the doors or a replacement for sure.

That was really the last "big ticket" upgrade for me. Just would like rope for the winch, get my rear bumps mounted and couple lil tweaks to the motor to get it running at it's full ability. Little clean up here and there.

Too bad you girls packed up it and headed home was looking forward to wheeling with some other rigs. But I got to hang with Josh

Your rig looked good, other than that tailgate

I think there is one for sale on here.

I can run my 6.0 all day in a park setting and burn about 8 gallons of gas. Even at Silver Lake doing a lot of HP stuff never burns more than about 10. As far as trail riding goes, I've left camp @ 8:00 am & returned @ 10:00 pm and only burned about 15 gallons.

The only time I ever ran out of gas was 2 really long (get back at midnight) runs, when my gas gauge quit (the first time) and when RenegadeII siphoned my tank.

I think I used 2.5 gallons in about 5 hours, maybe 3-4 actual wheeling hours.

about the same here (lq4 6.0). romped the crap out of it at harlan and only used about 8-10 gallons each day.

we'll find out how SL goes this june when it's 2wd all day and the rev limiter

definitely not as thirsty as I expected. that and the 22 gallon cell gives me a little insurance

There is a gas station around the corner

Next time we won't let you leave so easily.

Oh and you will need to change the oil at some point too, just in case you forget
