Yessiree! It has been used to stick a broken axle mount back together (some guy @ KOH we didn't know), John's steering sector shaft that stripped out and my broken link. Without it, John & I would have both been fubarred since we both broke on Outer Limits. Maybe when you start wheeling again you will regret selling it.

Finally built a oil pan skid today.

Those cases are nice but with the style latch they have I can't mount them the way I wanted to. But have a new idea.

I agree. A couple gatorades, mountain dews and of course, water for hydration.

Nope I was feeling lazy. Hoping to find some plastic to line the skid plate with tomorrow and tomorrow evening get the storage rack secured to the chassis. Also hoping to find another storage container to fit in the rear of the chassis. Getting a piece of 2" .250 to make a spare rear lower link tomorrow as well.

Maybe I'll see if I can find time to install two more lights I have on the under side as well.

Loonie is coming quick, just a couple more days
