Thanks, and yeah it took me months to find this one cause everything's in really great shape. as for the future plans ive started making a list:
  • 3" skyjacker lift kit with hydro shocks (might go bigger still thinking)
  • 31" B.F. Goodrich mud terrain km2's
  • Safari Rack w/ light bar
  • smittybilt winch
  • still deciding on what front and rear bumpers to get
