loving the wheels and grill, did you paint it or completely replace it?
Yeah the wheels. I thought the bronze wheels were fine with the color match hardtop, but not with the black top. The grill is painted Rustoleum bedliner from a rattle can. The grill is an extra from days gone by so was able to keep the Golden Eagle grill with the bronze accents on a shelf. Bonus points for the eagle eye who catches the fifth change, very difficult but is on the exterior.

How could you possibly take the golden eagle sticker off! blasphemy

And you got rid of your dog! Mods!
Got a good chuckle outta that for sure, both lines. Never was one for factory graffiti or dealer advertising so it goes without remorse. The dogs were out on patrol.

Today was WINCH DAY! Installed the winch on the smittybilt bumper and got it all wired up. I'd love to get feedback on wire routing - The main leads are behind the grill going up to the battery, and I routed the leads from the solonoids to the motor through the grill and back out - mostly because the spacing between the winch and the grill was too tight - I could have bent the wiring to make it work, but that tain't good for the wires

Was there no room to go under the grill instead of thru it?

Roughed in the first of 2 drawers for under the sleeping/doggy deck. Used Kaizen foam, burned in the sockets and traced/cut everything else.
This one is for the twisty things, drawer # 2 will be the poundy, prying things.
  • 1/2" drive 6 point sockets from 10mm to 24mm (plus a 36mm for the hub)
  • 3/8" drive 12 point sockets from 7mm to 19mm.
  • 1/4" drive sockets from 6mm to 10mm
  • Ratcheting wrenches from 8mm to 24mm
  • 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" socket wrenches
  • 1/2" and 3/8" extensions and wobble sockets
  • Torx set
  • Metric and SAE Allen wrenches
  • Various pliers, cresecnt wrench and a couple of screw drivers.
  • Dewalt 3/8" and 1/2" impacts will go in a bag (or maybe a case) below

Tried to trace a coolant leak. It’s dripping from in back of the oil filter.
