The pile of parts keeps getting bigger....

New front bumpstops


New rears:


Installed the rears today, little comparison from stock:


Still waiting on one more pair to arrive:


These have been sitting here for a bit, going to swap out front and rear springs!


These things are huge! Icon 3" overland


New fronts + Rears


Partnered with a fridge company, they sent out a smaller 21qt model. Awaiting the larger one which should be here later this week! Just in time for our next road trip and will be able to test them out.

Well today was a good day! The final piece to the puzzle, and one of the last parts for a bit. Time to spend money in other hobbies Now it is off to powdercoating and then hopefully have it on sometime next week. Any suggestions for finish on the color? Satin black? Gloss or not? Don't know what to go with :/

Bumper is back from powdercoating, so today was the day we tackled it!

Rough line up:


Initial very conservative cut, wanted to see how the cutting wheel cut the bumper before getting close to what needed to be cut. Used a angle grinder with a 5 inch cutting wheel. Compared to a dremel this was a larger cutting wheel obviously so the cuts were straighter and smoother. I even used to top of the cutting wheel as a sander and it made quick work of the bumper to shave down some high points.


Bumper on, then took it off to trim more, put it back on and here we are.


At this point my friend had to leave so I'm solo. Instead of taking the bumper on and off to line it up, I had just enough room to take the upper stock bumper piece of. Also painted the body that now is exposed with some black paint.


I was able to fairly easily take off and put back on multiple times to trim it to its final shape.


Here is the final result with everything back together! Managed to smooth out the cuts and get it fairly even. If I notice any more issues I can easily remove the upper portion and trim to fit. Just needs a few more finishing touches but overall I am so stoked, been looking forward to this install for months!

How are you liking the trigger controller? I've been thinking of getting a 6-shooter, but the 5 amp limit on 2 switches has me a little worried. There doesn't seem to be much love for the triggers around here, everyone goes with homemade, switch pros or Spod. But at half the price and no wires needed... hard to argue with it!

Also would the switch panel fit in the little center cubby at the bottom of the console?

Thanks!

I am super happy with it. It definitely is a budget friendly setup when compared to switch pros. Take my opinion how you will, as I have never used a spod or switch pro, but for what it is, it performs exactly how I needed it. I was able to take out a bunch of wiring although I do wish I opted for the 6 shooter. Might take this out and put it into our other car and then get a 6 for this as we add more stuff. I can see if I can drop it in the center console tomorrow and get some photos or see if it will fit.

Update! Got some free time and had two spontaneous trips this week. We headed out to Anza Borrego for a few nights of camping. We got lucky and ended up setting up camp at this awesome spot. Had plenty of time to get some proper photos...








Then a few days later we were back on the road for a daytrip to Joshua Tree with some friends! Of course it was a high winds day with gusts around 25mph and some gnarly dust storms. It made for some incredible views once we got deeper into the park.
