spudley Also installed KC HiLites light tabs on sides of the GOBI rack... trying to decide on the lights... I want something ideal for 'rock lights' but not so bright they are blinding when out using them for area 'camp' lights.

Today 10:29 PM
spudley Installed Dirty Dog "Trench Cover" to get rid of that nasty open hinge pit.

Thanks! The only difference between people who own Jeeps with chrome and people who own Jeeps without chrome, is people with chrome on their Jeeps don't care if others don't have chrome.

Just sayin'



(for the record, I can get mud and dirt on my chrome just as much as a Jeep without. I just spend more time cleaning it after the ride. Season opener trail run is May 3rd!! Looking forward to it.)

I wasen't stuck, rather playing around and making sure everything was ok with my set up.
