Got another 10,000 lb receiver attachment hard point to go into the dvrs side rock slider. Like this...
Amazon Amazon
Got another 20,000 ****** pulley, https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...y?cm_vc=-10005
And a new tree strap.

Test fired a new 6" led light (the wife got me) to replace the 5" LED headlights.The old 5" are going to be side facing lights or rock lights.

Schedule for a test lap/tune run at the "The Rock" Pitbull Power Sports off Road facility at Bolivar Mo, this weekend. https://www.pitbullpowersportsinc.co...oogle.com%252f

Not really a competition, just a fun 4 day event 4 wheeling with fellow Early Bronco enthusiasts. Sorry I am NOT a "U tuber", but here are some from past Howie events there, that I found on the web.

I got my skid pate worked over and installed.

Chris great to hear from you, you need to come south in your SC and cruise the trails. There are level 1 to 5 so you can have some fun. I smacked my diffs a few time last time out there and I wanted to avoid that and give myself some added yoke/u joint protection.

Got there late and wheeled it fri afternoon, evening and into the night. Sat AM meet up with a couple Bronco guys and got on some 3's and 4's..then the steering box seal blew out and I lost ANY AND ALL p/s in the middle of going up a level 3 trail. 4L and 35x14.50 and rock ledges about broke my arms a few times.

Had some help (tail strapped to a jeep) and got back down safe and back to camp. Hung out with a few FTE members that were there. Loaded it, made the drive home, loaded the rail buggy and had some other fun.

Thank you for the invite, I wish I could've made the trip. Had my mind set on going for about 3 hours friday then thought i'd better not push my luck. I'd been SOL if I'd broke down 4 hours from home without a tow rig.
looks like you still had a good weekend! Did the steering box survive?

I understand completely, always next time. I am getting complete seal kit and see if I can make it stop hemorrhaging p/s fluid.
