How did perform the modification to your hand? :bleh:

I have heard great things about the grabbers and have seen them rip through mud and icey water no problem. They're great.

Hammer and chisel trying to cut a nut on the front shock strut off, was stripped like something fierce

Well, I figured that going to Moab for EJS is on my huge bucket list I figured I would post up my plans for my I guess rebuild on the run up to EJS 2016. Plan on having the parents from SoCal meet up with the wife and I in Moab. The build list is lengthy and semi costly but I know I will be happy with the end result.

Bold text means not ordered yet

Pro Comp 17x9 Steel Wheels
Pro Comp Extreme Mt2 40x13.5
Evo Enforcer 4in
Poison Spyder BFH/Engo 10000s winch
Evo Protek oil pan skid
Evo No Limits sway bar release
Rockhard rear harness bar to lean spare on
PSC Hydro Assist
Yukon 5.13 F/R gear set
JE Reel 1350 front driveshaft
CB equipped
ACE Fender Delete kit

As I order parts and tear into Franklin the Turtle I will be posting up pictures and updating y'all along the way. :rock:

Well my previous post and plans are now null and void, going in a different direction with the build, ordering a Crawler Conceptz stubby and some Evo steel rock skins tomorrow and that is my starting point so far, next step I believe is going to be saving up for a prorock 44 assembly to piece together over the next couple of months
