Dude, good job. This build is inspiring me to start the hunt for a clean 3rd gen.

Had some custom length sliders made, most companies make them too short so I had mine made to cover exactly pinch weld to pinch weld. Then I welded them on with some personal stylin’ gussets

Coastal off road full skids

Picked up my coastal offroad 3/16 steel skid plate kit. I also had access to a shop in order to mock them up, which made it way easier to make micro adjustments before tack welds

Rock slider install

My coating process with this one is a little different since this piece of the puzzle takes a bit of abuse.
First cleaned/etched, then coated with por15, tacky dry, then sprinkled sand (for grip) then another coat of por15, bedliner for additional grip, then a rubberized under coating to minimize chipping... I know, a lot of stuff right

Wink

Marlin Crawler 1/4” rear differential cover install.
Performed same coating procedure as my skids and painted it metallic silver. (Also painted all my skids silver at the same time to add some pazazz) Then installed some OME 861 springs since I started sagging in the rear from all the weight I was putting on.

Went to install my Lotus lower link skid and realized there was one flaw... if enough impact was put on that section of the skid, it would still crumple the oem attachment... so I went ahead and started making pieces to fully box that area of the vehicle (it happens to be one of the most contact points going over rocks/tree roots)

It was a lot more work than expected being I had to remove my gas tank (new OEM fuel pump/filter at the same time) to finish up welding and painting on the driver side

Very impressive build with all of the personal touches. Also haven’t seen such high quality photos as these ones in a build thread. Nice work!

Switch pros 9100 install

When I installed this I spent a little extra time tucking in the actual module to keep it away from heat/weathering. Also made a custom switch pros mount that mounts in between the cup holder and the 4wd shifter. It is completely clear of everything and within perfect reach even when my elbow is resting on the armrest.

^^**I might put these into production if anyone is interested**

Made a quick release lexan plate to mount my BlueSea busbar/negative terminal
