Thanks, just bought the oem roof rack, going to install it this weekend!!!


Thank you, sir! But still a lot of stuff to buy, modify and learn!!! Also, need more time to go out and explore!!!!
Ohhhh don't we all... I just bought a new truck, so that means all of my LED lights are gone, my lift kit is gone and I'm starting from scratch! I don't have any bumpers, no winch, NOTHING! I don't even have a rear locking diff... I've asked ARB to let me know when it comes out for my truck.

I was about to know that feeling... I was on my way to buy a JKU Rubicon, but it was going to be a lot of money to invest in everything new for it... I better decided to buy a dd and finish this truck as my overlander :)

@ChepoCDT is your rear bumper from Relentless Fab? Or did you just take inspiration from them? Either way, looks great!! That's gonna be about what mine looks like, when I scrape up the funds for a high clearance bumper.

It's similar to the Relentless Fab... I quoted the shipping to Mexico and it was almost the same as the bumper, so I took some of their ideas and was custom made, with some mods...

About the bungee, its a dog leash hanging in the hilift... hahaha
