     Registered here a looooooong time ago and never became active on the site. Re-registered here a few years ago and have become more active. I have been fortunate and have benifited from the generosity of many.
 
A very special thanks to
-John at Whitknuckleoffroad for making the best sliders ever for our rigs
-Steve at Frontrunner outfitters for producing a stellar aluminum roof rack for our rigs.
-Steevo at RuggedRocks for offering the best customer service and simply being bad ass.
-ChrisHaynes, SoCalX, SteveC, MotoPig77 for the crazy awesome hook ups!

As our family grows, this rig has gone from mini rock crawler to to full on Expo/Overland rig. We love bugging out and setting up camp in the middle of no where.

I'm the third SCCX owner of this Yak rak. I probably wont be the last. I'll be making a drop in rack or maybe even a full replacement rack sometime soon.

Very nice, Danny.  These front bumper with low-profile hoops are really growing on me.  How was the lead time?

Thanks guys...
   Like 75% of my build, the bumper was bought used. KMA doesn't have a good reputation for quality finishing. The design is stellar but execution is a bit rough. That was evident when I took position of it. I spent 2 days with a grinder and a flap disc cleaning up welds, shaping angles and corners. I got a good price on it so I was okay putting in the work. I would have lost my mind if I would have paid full price for what I got.

I'm all about the low profile light bar. As matter of fact, Toro's bumper is my favorite bumper on the market. Come to think of it, Toro has a lot of parts on his truck that I'm envious of. I really like the White Knuckle sliders too. Don't get me wrong, I love my new bumper. But the grass is always greener.
