Anyone modding this weekend?

Just curious if anyones doing any wrenching over the Holiday. I'm starting my rear bumper. At a minimum I am hoping to get my hitch raised up 3". Depending on the help I get I may have a beefy rollpan made.

I'm doing the 'work like a dog' mod. Hopefully I will be able to get some software work on my carputer done though. Or atleast get a ****-ton of reading done about it.

jus doin some electronics crap. Halos for headlights, maybe rewire up offroading lights. My taillights are messed up, too much mud behind them has burnt the reverse lights out and i've already reversed into a steep ditch once..

I guess in a perfect world i'd get my damn body lift on!

Well, I would have been installing my Jusnes light bar and 2 sets of Hellas, but I'm working all weekend and my last paycheck was sh!tty so I couldn't order the light bar...

So I guess I won't be doing any mods this weekend.

Since when have mods been measured in beer? Guess I missed the memo...

I just ordered the light bar... I got tired of waiting... I gotta go get a fullsize spare sometime next week, too.

My plan was to use (2) 2" square tubing to make a roll pan with integrated tow hooks. A couple of guys here have done it. i just cut the pieces and placed them up there and I don't think I'm gonna do that. The square tubing is straight and the tailgate has an arch to it. It doesn't make a good transition. I'm just gonna order a rollpan and be done with it. I did get my hitch raised up though.


Now I'm cleaning her to go to a car hang out this evening.

I was thinking about finally fixing the blown bulb on the headlight switch, but....

Picked up a generator and small A/C unit on the way home Friday.
Wanted to assemble and test them yesterday, but..
The A/C unit worked fine, then slipped out of my sweaty hands getting it back into the box..
I caught it on the way down to the ground with my knee, and the rear radiator shaved a nice spot while also giving me about 28 two inch long flash slices. My sweat prompted poured into them.

Anyway, I decided enough was enough and called it a night after that. Today I assembled the generator and tested it. In the process, I lost about 20 lbs of sweat.
Which means I'm done modding till December. I washed the lovebugs off the truck, so that sorta counts.
