Rotated tires. And removed the aftermarket engine mounts and replaced them with OEM Mopar mounts. Much smoother now.

From last weekend but went wheeling at Big Creek and Uwharrie. Night wheeled Dickey Bell on Friday and Saturday did Big Creek 9-5 and Daniel after that. For those that follow me on Instagram you probably already saw the footage but here ya go.

Great looking bumper build, your own design ? I'm in the process too, soon I hope.

Thanks for the kind words but unfortunately it is a Coastal Off-road DIY High Clearance bumper.

I would not recommend purchasing from them. Although they did answer my questions regarding the bumper some of the pieces that I asked to be included with the bumper were never sent. They take a few days to respond to emails as well.

I wouldn’t be as salty about the situation if I had received my cut out pieces as I asked. I had to come up with different lighting solutions afterwards like using the KC Cycles as blinkers.

The steel quality is top notch but the fitment while assembling the bumper caused the entire piece to be rotated towards the car so the bumper has a “negative rake”.

Thankfully you are the only one who can see these things.. I looked for a DIY bumper but they were all too fancy for my taste. I wanted a simple design so I designed my own. I'm using C channel to cut down on welding mixed with 3/16" plate steel. The welder was impressed with the simplicity of the design which will save money as well. I'm kind of a cheap skate. Weight was a big factor for me and it will only weigh 60# with the store bought winch plate incorporated. Thanks for giving me your info and DIY hints.

Finished the install of my Kenwood TM-D710GA dual band transceiver. Just needed to run the power cable from the battery in to the cabin and up under my passenger seat. The cable is fused on both the red and black near the battery, and there is a red line fuse on the pig tail coming off the radio.

May upgrade the run some day with a conduit of some sort to protect the wires, but it works for now.

Not only today but yesterday as well we used our rig(s) to haul our kids half way across the state for baseball/softball. I got a great parking spot this morning (had to be at the field for 7:00 am) and later in the day thought it would make a good photo. As of now our rigs have more dirt from ball fields on and in them than trail dirt. :flushed:

This might have something to do with why there's so much dirt INSIDE the 4Runner...

Took her out exploring. Stayed a night at a random road side campsite near Union Valley Reservoir then met up with the group from OverlandBound and we headed up the Tahoe side of the Rubicon and camped at Richardson Lake for the weekend.

Not a bad spot to camp.


View from the tent sucks though...


Good ol' crawfish boil


Sourdough Hill 7,976ft. ASL. The Rubincon Trail winds its way through the valley below.

Yeah the view would be better without the stinky socks in the picture. Doesn't look like you guys even bothered to air down for the rocky road.
That is a nice place and wouldnt mind spendinf a week or two our there throwing rocks at the squerrels. Thanks for the pic's but leave your
feet out of the next ones, I might want to frame and hang it on my wall. LOL
