Looking at your profile, maybe do the front bumper and a winch next. Diff covers if you don't already have them yet.

Gunner I got tired of filling the tank. It was so fast but then I always wanted to help those without air and I ended up needing a refill every run. My OBA is a lot slower but it works and I can fill my tires in about 7 or 8 minutes. My buddy has one of those 4000 psi carbon fiber scuba tanks and he fills it at his fire station. He takes less than a minute for a 35.

There are still dumb people that think a Honda should be down there in the soft sand, that will never end. In high school we would go down there and pull them out for beer, haha. Shhh.....I don't think my dad knew that's what I was doing with his Scout

The place that I have ours filled is right by the grocery store I go to, it's very convenient for Mike since I drop it off when I go shopping and pick it up when I'm done

I won't have to deal with them, we're headed to Havasu tomorrow sometime

The euro spec master cylinder seems to be a hot set up and will give you a good bit of braking power
