Just as hard to install as all the NX threads here indicated it would be. Once it got warm enough this morning (I knew it would be cloudy this afternoon) it stretched out enough to go together, but you definitely don't want to install this in the shade or on a cold day. It's going to take a while to get used to the look after having the body-colored hard top on, but so far I like it. There is supposed to be a hell of a storm tonight and tomorrow so that should reveal any leaks while at the same time testing the strength of the hoist that is supporting the hard top.

Metalcloak Front Bumper

Got my Metalcloak bumper installed. Looks awesome - I'm really happy with it. The install was super easy, taking the stock bumper off and trimming the uprights was the hardest part.

I took my boss up to the family property and taught him how to shoot. Bonus we saw about 12 does running around the mountain. First time for him to shoot a gun and to see deer in the wild. I had a good day.
