    Won't win any awards, but not bad for my first flex. Got the job done on the trail. And it even managed to maul my fenders a bit. So much for 35s with a 4" lift! What do y'all think?

    Our club had its Fall Run out at Barnwell Mountain OHV. Ever been there? They have some pretty good trails. Everything from stock capable trails to ones that will roll just about anything that tries to conquer it. Even DBLAZER broke on one of the toughest trails!

    Never got the floor welded. Just put the stuff on the roof of the truck inside the rack. Worked better that way as it kept the load lower. Many times my rack had a competition with the trees. One light kept getting knocked loose, but everything is still intact!

    Looking good!

    How are your gears doing?
    I didn't hear whether or not you got the noise to dissappear after the install.

    I opened them up and everything looked good. backlash was about .004 so I opened it up to about .008. They still make noise, but they work great. They did great this weekend in 2wheel, and 4wheel hi and lo. Lockers also worked great. While they may not be perfect, they work good enough for me. And I DID IT MYSELF!!!

  14. I am planning a 4" shackle flip and going with 35" inch tires. Where did you hit the fenders? I have already resigned myself to trimming the front fender under the parking light and at the backside close to the door, and trim the rear fender under the parking light. Basically stole the ideas from the UAV. Anyplace else I would have to trim to gain tire clearance? Any/all suggestions appreciated!

    God has a hard on for Marines, because we keep Heaven chock full of fresh souls!

    I never came close on the front side of my front fenders and I didn't have any marks on the inside wheel well for the rear. I chewed mine up on the back side of the front openings. By the door. I bent the wheel well trim up and curved the outer sheet metal up into the fenderwell. I also rubbed the inner fender well at the back. It was probably also exaggerated as I have my 35s on 10" centerline wheels. That really "shifts" the tire towards the rear during turning. I look forward to getting my bushwackers in next week!
