Not sure right now its a German produced product. The numbers need to be run taking in account shipping and the Euro/Dll value verse manufacturing here in the USA. For now I will just be bringing over a few and determine interest based on cost.

The new product will addresses my problems with my current full belly skid. My current skid see most of its contact on the sides where nothing is there to protect. I really liked the way it wraps around the tcase and does not block the transmission drain plug.
Well either way I am interested. Put me down for one.

I see one chainsaw is a Stihl Farm Boss but what's the other red one? A Echo maybe?

Finally fixed a courtesy light switch on the rear passenger door as my ten year-old can't understand closing the door "firmly" vs slamming it. Note if you ever do this, if you connect the switch to the wire behind the door pillar but don't mount the push part into the door it won't work. Needs to be bolted in to give it ground to the truck body. Don't ask how I know.

Took away our trucks, but I see it as an upgrade. I can stretch out without the seats in the back. No idea if they're displaced from the great white north. I see a lot of H&P Flex Rigs over the deeper S. TX gas plays

Bought a 96 lx450 a month ago from @catfishhands. 96 lx450 with 168000 miles, 2.5" Dobinson lift, 37" cooper discovery pros, fn wheels. Might go down to 35s yet. Don't really need the 37s.

So far it's been an interesting journey. Always have wanted an 80 after having grown up with them. The body and interior were kinda trashed so starting on that. I took the seats out to clean the carpets and this is what happened.

Guess now there's new carpet in the garage and new leather seat covers coming. Got the bumper installed yesterday

Keep the 37s. 35s aren't exactly DD friendly either if that's what you're after.

I wish I went 37
