    installed the new full length roof rack this weekend. Fitment is great, and it looks awesome. Zero wind noise so far.

    Samb, how does this do on technical trails? Im looking for something that can do tight technical trails but can still romp the dunes and catch air. I know a xj is decent at both, but, kinda want more long travelish in my life

    does real well. I did the first few miles of the Rubicon Trail which is pretty rough. It did great and at the time i had minimal skid plates. I've been happy with driving it over everything i've attempted.

    Hmmm, can scoop an older 4runner for cheap around here may have to check it out, some already have lifts but obviously not long travel so thatll have to be changed out anyways

    Went up to the family house up in the mountains again. Scoped out some new camping sites for later use.

    put the platform load panel on the front and secured the traction boards. Used a carriage bolt with a sway bar bushing, washer and a knob nut for easy access.

    Went out camping this weekend with about 10 others for a friends birthday. This was a new spot with about 15 miles of trail before the site. Well worth the efforts and cliffside wheeling to get there. Ill try to grab some dashcam footage of the trail in.
