Well, since I can't find any room to mount my CB and Ham radios - I got this Icom 5100 with a remote faceplate. We'll see how the install goes.

Well that was easy except routing all the wiring up the B pillar and across the windshield frame. Only place I could find for the main unit was in front of the freezer/fridge so that's where it ended up along with the CB, I primarily use the ham so the CB isn't that much of a pain being behind the driver's seat. Now to find a boom mike with a ptt switch.

Rocker guards arrived and in the process of installing, be sure to take Motrin or Advil before starting this project - they are beefy 86 lbs each.

And I thought the Rockslide steps were heavy at 72 pounds each...ouch!

@RKKRAWL you are setting up for some SERIOUS off-roading!

And looking good doing it! (y)

Between the weight of these things and the after effects of the Covid booster I've been wiped out for a few days. Finally got one side on and the other side should go much faster.

Had some Hemi stickers that I was thinking about putting on but just didn't like the way that they looked, so on to the modifications.

Well, I managed to score some of the last Nitto 40x13.5x17 Trail Grapplers in the country - no more until June 2022. New beadlocks will be here Monday. It's always fun mounting beadlocks by hand on the the floor. Still waiting on Next Venture Motorsports aluminum belly skid so I can at least do some trails with this thing, the trails I like to do really give me second thoughts about that low hanging oil pan drain bolt.

Beadlocks got here early, these are the Dirty Life Dual Tek wheels which have the trim ring for street use and have an optional true beadlock ring kit. Tried to show the plastic rim protector on both sides and the true beadlock rim on both sides. For street use the tire mounts on the inside of the rim flange, for offroad use it mounts to the outside of the flange an is held in place by the beadlock ring.
