I added a hitch receiver this week. I bought a used fridge and needed to use a trailer to pick it up... I will keep it around until I have the money to buy an actual integrated bumper receiver.

Ordered my sliders from Boulder Ironworx earlier this week... They should be shipping today. I just need to get all of hardware and a jack to hold it up...

I guess they were shipped earlier in the week. They arrived today and after talking with Bill with Ironworx, he is shipping me the bolts (they had some supply issues) and the inner brackets (which fell off during shipping). I will get them mounted after I get those... :)

Wrapped Front Grab Handles:

Nice is that paracord ? I've got a ton of this laying around might do that. Cool mod probably makes it grip better less slippery.

It is paracord! My wife (who is 5ft even) uses it every time to get in. I thought it might make it easier plus it looks really good. It's about 20ft of it on there.

This past weekend: relocated the rear diff breather, replaced the rear tiedown hooks with d-rings

Upcoming weekend: Creating a rear pull to help my wife close the rear hatch.

This week I got a good deal on new tires... Picked up AT KO2's for 199 each and replaced all 5. I then turned around and sold my OEM tires for 150 and will put the money toward a lift :)
