Got out to Moab and did some social distanced camping and a little wheeling. Blown away with how many people were in Moab it seemed more alive and more relaxed with stuff being open then where I am in Colorado. The weather was perfect it cooled down at night and was 80-85 during the day.

It was my first time using the roof top tent I bought second hand around Christmas time on impulse. I don’t think I’m a overlandy guy but as much as I hate it wheeling due to the high center of gravity it was pretty slick to use with the girlfriend it was cozy and easy. I got to use the 4.88s for the first time since downsizing from the 5.29s. Wayyy happier with the performance on the road even driving over I-70 and vail pass loaded down with the tent and way more crap then we needed to bring I thought it was a lot more comfortable doing 75-80 then with the 5.29s. I didn’t notice a huge difference wheeling either but I’m sure I will when I’m wheeling at high altitude in Colorado. I did Hells Revange and Poison Spider but didn’t get to ballsy with the line choice as I was out there solo. Cruiser killed it gotta love it

I’ve got an ultragauge as well. To fit the fuse cover you’ll notice the connector on the vehicle has another set of holes 90 degrees to the set it’s using now. You can rotate it to point down and put one screw back in. With that I was able to plug in my gauge and close the cover. Though it is difficult to plug and unplug like that but it works.

Got my Ultragauge mounted. Now I just need to relocate the OBD2 port somewhere else son I can put the fuse panel cover back on.

Next is to try and fix a shaky passenger mirror and a driver mirror that doesn’t work at all.

In your second pic, what exactly are we looking at? Is that the factory mount all cut up and bolted crooked to the frame with another mount welded to it???

Any plans to protect the O2 sensor wiring? That looks pretty eager to get ripped out by some sagebrush or something kicked up by your tire...

I have plans to route mine over the frame too, and haven't decided on a game plan yet. How do you like the sound with the different muffler?

Good week for the cruiser. Added the LCP battery tie down and replaced the low pressure power steering hoses.

And just realized I left a paper towel in the battery tray.

It was a Sunday Ride nothing challenging. Pine mountain does lead to the Stair Steps and they are challenging, My hat is off to you Sir if you navigated up or down them. I have only looked and went back the way I came.
It was simply a great time to get outside & see people. I was amazed at how many people are out on the freeway & roads.... good for them, good for us. TIME TO GET OUTSIDE FOLKS & get back to doing what you love.
