    Good and bad in this update.

    Bad news first my Jeep is on hold at the factory for a quality issue. Hopefully just a bad seat stitching or something simple well see how long she sits there.

    Good news. I made up my mind on a few things.
    Skyjacker lift is going on with m95 shocks. Read alot of good reviews on them and itll get me till something better hits the market.

    Decided to go with TACTIK T-742 in Gun Metal Gray and Black for my wheels. Identical to the dirty life road kill just tactick is a private label for qtec.
    Grabbed some sensors off ebay for cheap so no need to gut my factory wheels.

    And for rubber I'm finally getting to run the KM3 from BFG. I've been wanting to try them since their marketing manager showed me the prototype before they were announced. Cant wait to get this set up on my jeep!!

    Jeep STILL hasn't left the factory and they won't tell me why. Beyond frustrating as the parts keep piling up.

    Order for my bumper and winch went in today.
    Big thanks to my friends at Rugged Ridge for hooking me up with some more parts for the build.
    Rugged Ridge sponsored my team back when we raced the 36 Hours of Uwharrie and some other fun events.

    Their continued support is greatly appreciated.
    They are sending us the Arcus stubby bumper and their new Trekker 10k winch.

    What size canopy did you order? They don’t make a gladiator specific one yet. Trying to decide if I should get a Tacoma one and make it work or wait.

    Scored a great deal on a new table at campsaver parking lot sale. Our old rio adventure table has seen better days and this is a very nice replacement for it. Initial impression is that it's substantially more stable and easy to assemble. While a little longer stored it's not as big around. The stability alone is worth it as the rioadventures shock cords have slacked ruining it's stability. This new one doesn't rely on shock cord tension to stay in one piece so it's a winner already.
