      Please say it is an Atlas or a duel case setup.

      I wish! A doubler is in the plans at some point.

      I thought I updated this thread with my rock slider additions but went back and didnt see it. I made some plates so my feet dont get caught between the tubes getting in/out and they are a good place to stand while accessing the roof.

      Love it! I am sure whatever it is will be well thought out and way cool. Getting all the ducks to line up just right can take time, and then sometimes they get out of line. :p :confused: I was hoping you might take the rear hatch and make some barn doors out of it for the lower. Sort of like an old willy's style.

      Mounted up some 35x12.5R15 Pitbull Rockers on some Allied Beadlocks. I painted the rings bronze to break up the black. They are about the same size as the SXs I took off but the Pitbull & wheel combo is 30lbs heavier than the SX & wheel combo I took off, per corner. I did install some taller bump stops in back. I need to push my beams forward a bit now because I am getting some rubbing up front. Haven't had a chance to take it out yet.

      Tech tip: those red, yellow and white dots around new tires actually mean something. When mounting the tires always line up the yellow dot with the valve stem. That is the heavy balance point of the tire and the valve stem helps to cancel it out.

      Nice Brian, those are some nice bigass tires. I remember those small yellow and red dots. I've removed hundreds and hundreds of them. They take some rubbing and a cleaner to get them off, or a high pressure spray close up. Thanks for the tip, I don't think I ever heard that before, and I worked around service shops for a couple of years.
