The bushwacker flares look nice! :bigthumb:
That list is about as long as mine is....except mine keeps growing. :lol:
I think you need to add some more to that list. Tell Santa you deserve it for being a good boy all year!
Skid plates 75% done with the skid plates! 80% complete on swimming capability. rear diff and locker breathers are on & Snorkel was installed late last night. Still need to do the transmission and front diff breathers.. is there one for the transfer case? One modification at a time!

^Automatic Transmission has one that can be raised. Manual transmission has one, but it is press fit into the housing and can't be raised.

Skids look good
is that in reference to the transfer case? I"m auto.. you should come out to my pre- Thanksgiving Hooters dinner night in Houston!
debated for a long time as to what winch bumper to go with... happily and luckily i was able to get a TrailWorx and a Gen2 Smitty XRC 9.5comp! Fog, driving and other lights are next on the list...

Recovering from foot surgery, two friends helped me out and Installed the Warrior platform rack and made the Trailworx Hooped light bar mount work. I need to flip the hoop around to get the light alittle lower. Next is Removable side rails and mesh for flooring for roof top Lounging and camping on warm summer nights!

What would you like it to say instead my friend?? I can change that for you! :bigthumb:
2018 projects! as I move to New Mexico and more desert based overlanding I anticipate the need for more water. So! my summer project this year will be buying the Man-A-Fre AUX gas tank and using it as my water tank. I don't think it will be too difficult to convert it for water use and if I happen to hit a rock hard enough to cause a leak it won't be fuel all over the trail. Water for Showing, Cooking, Cleaning and emergency drinking. Kings in the front and back matched up with a TC Long travel kit and MT long travel kit. Maybe some more LED lights. James Baroud Horizon Vision RTT. Some other little odd end things. Good times to come!
