I've read to let it sit at least 72hrs before putting anything in it so be careful! i'll probably do mine in the spring.

be careful using that tire since you have L/S. using two different sized tires is a no no (from my understanding)

Yea that's really just so I don't get stranded in the woods if I get a flat. I don't ever plan on keeping it on for very long. I'm too picky to have one different tire and rim on my truck. It's fine as a spare tho.

Made some home made front gap guards today to keep mud and water from splashing up into my engine when wheeling.

I bought some of these plastic fasteners to pin them to the plastic fender walls.


Then I cut out an old treadmill belt to the right shape and sprayed it


And last, all i did was drill 3 small holes in the plastic fender walls and in the belt and pinned them up!

saw another member (mikerider) with one of these and i had to get one.

Rusty's Offroad Ford 8.8 diff skid. This thing is nice. Makes me feel a little better when I'm bouncing over rocks.

oh nvm, i thought you were talking about the hitch. I dunno really, I liked the way this one looked and it was pretty cheap and good quality. no real reason. the full covers are badass too. i think ballistic fab makes a really cool one as well.
