So....

My next mod is on order. A to Z rocker guards. Hopefully I'll see them next week. I can't wait to get rid of those nasty Sahara rocker trim pieces, plus the rocks in Sparta and Jefferson show a need for better armor.

Last Sunday I scraped a few times. Next comes a fuel tank skid. I'm worried about how easy it will be to drop the tank though.....

It's really really easy to drop and replace. Just make sure that you have as little gas as possible. Also the hard lines that attach to the T and soft lines make sure you twist those first to get then out or they could break. I had to run all new hard line and get a new t fitting cause it all broke. Mine is a 98 with some rust though

I've replaced fuel pumps in the past. My concern is rusted hardware and fuel fittings. That's what could make it a nightmare.

I'd like to explore the Jefferson trails we didn't hit last week. The ones from that "rich" neighborhood.

Talked to them yesterday. They have a batch going in for powder coating the end of this week. Gave me 10% off for being on WF. I can't wait.

I like the concept of the AtoZ guards. I don't have to mess with body mount bolts.

I would be in, but depends on where we go. My still stock tires probably won't get me up even what we did last time witg this rain. I would ride with someone else if it came to that.

Hey guys, I posted a new thread north jersey wheeling hook up. We can use this for all planing trips in North Jersey instead of the Sparta only one. This way you can post up anywhere u want to wheel.
