Going through some pics for a photo album and came across this one. Storms were moving in and needed to get some good cover:

Well, off-road trailer broke my hitch, so I cut that sucker off and welded on a WAM rear multi-carrier bumper.

Added snorkel for no other reason than why not?

Built a Hakima rack from u-bolts and half channel Unistrut, which I mounted upside down to accommodate the 2.5" foot height of the Yakima Skyrise 2 tent. Super stable platform that now really kicks ass.

Here's the maiden voyage since the mods:


and above Valley of the Gods:

At 120k on the odo and still runs like new!

Love those pics. Made the bottom one my background haha. I think the stock front bumper can look really good sometimes. I like how yours is with the integrated winch. Occasionally I look at my front bumper and think "eh, it's a little overkill".

It's been a slow process, but I still am trying to keep things as 'tucked' as possible. Before the RTT and Hella 500s, I was still getting 18mpg town, 21mpg highway. They dropped it to 16-18mpg range. Not horrible, thankfully. Trying to avoid the overkill feeling!

I appreciate the compliment though, glad you dig!

Even with mud terrains...? That's pretty good. I would be SUPER happy if that was my experience.

Yeah, we call it the Magic-X because of it. My brother inlaw has a Pro4x Fronty that gets about 14-16mpg at best. I think the manual tranny really helps.
