think I just had to help that one up on a trailer, had to repair/replace mine though.
Boxing and gusseting the factory mounts will do wonders.

A little update...

after waiting almost 2 months for my control arms they came in....

I only got the fronts. I'll order another set for the rear down the road and push it out to 103" wheel base. But I need a new fuel cell before I do that.
Next new fenders in the works as well as a new cage....

Well I haven't don't much to it mostly because it has been at the dealership since it was stolen. Well we got it back and I'm really not wanting it anymore. Don't know if it was cause it was stolen or something else. So I decided to give it a good
deep cleaning so I can take some pics so I can put it up for sale. Well one thing led to another and this happened.

That will be all for now. You may carry on with you daily lives.

Well since no one has asked what I used, ill let ya know. It was dupli-colors new bed armor with Kevlar. I wasn't too sure about it. I was going to use herc, but this stuff sound just as good if not better. It went on just like any other kind. Today I just put it through its first test. We are building a pondless water feature need a bunch of rock and boulders. I washed off the dirt, not a single mark on it. Works great!

Getting it ready to sell. I listed it on craigslist, but only got scams calling on it.

Man getting "dupli-colors new bed armor with kevlar on your hootus" just doesn't have the same ring to it as Herc...

Looks good.

I know, but you would have a Kevlar coated hootus though.
