    Same here. I hope everyone takes advantage of the garage too.

    Made a little more.progress yesterday. That snorkel was a bear but finally figured out how it was supposed to sit and got it done. I had to grind the top tube on the bumper for the winch to fit. Just so you know, a 4500 elite wide spool does not fit on an EMP bumper. Going to contact Motoalliance and tell them so they stop selling them as a kit.
    I mounted my winch contactor and the wireless control box under the dash on the front frame rail. Turned out nice and clean. I put the rocker switch to the left of the steering wheel by the little cubby hole.
    Got the floor protectors installed and got her all sat back down on all fours. Now I just need to button all the plastics back up and throw the windshield on and she is ready to ride for now. Still have to do the lift and cage Next month hopefully.

    I keep forgetting to hit save changes after I upload pics. They show up as the small image in the list of images so I just think they are there I guess. So I have to go back and do it all over again. Oh well I will get the hang of it.

    Update on the bumper and winch combo. It DOES fit. I'm just an idiot and got in a hurry. Instead of grinding a hole in the tube you just have to drill one more hole in the mounting area. There were three other holes to move it over an inch but the 4th hole wasn't there. Just bolted the winch mount to the bumper and used it as a template. Much better! Now just need to paint around the stupid hole in my bumper.

    Man I am pumped about my cage. I'm going down tues to put a bed lift on before he gets very far along. But so far I am loving his thoughts. He plans to take about an inch out of the front and 5 in the back. But he also plans to narrow it at the top overall about 5 or 6 inches too. I got the powder all picked out. Should have the 3 inch arched a arms this weekend hopefully. Going to get the bushings in the green upper arms and get them ready to go. Hope to be up and running the first of May. I'm itching to ride.

    Finally starting to make some progress. Might have needed to be a little lower. We'll see what it looks like when it's finished. Hope to take it to powder the first of the week.

    Oh man. It's killing me. I'm definitely going to need bigger treads but if I don't sell mine, I will just run them til they are bald I guess. That will give me time to recover and save for tires and clutch work.
