    That doesn't sound too bad but I realize there is a value of time not added in. Yes, agreed gun rack would be cool.

    Yeah, I spent several nights out in the garage getting it done, but I enjoy it much better than sitting in front of the television doing nothing.

    I will say that it was a smart move waiting until I got the final height before adding the hitch, it would have been way too high had I done it before the lift and new tires.

    I agree. Something to be said for the ability to enjoy your own work.

    I took it out to the hunting camp last weekend and with the new wheels and tires, it was a very tight fit on the 5x10 utility trailer.. I got about a mile on it and it was doing great right before the DOJ tripod joint failed. I'm pretty sure this was due to the lift kit and my decision to extend my shocks 2" to make up for it. I limped back to camp in FWD and got it back on the trailer and back home. I'll have to do some homework to determine how much I'll have to trim it down so that the joint stays together. Anyone have a spare tripod joint laying around?
