    that side plastic will not be fun to put back in and pull back out with a cage in there. ok, so i lied, its getting caged.

    on a side note.. i found an ant colony under the rear carpet.

    Time to buy a harbor freight bender and a big welder (Miller is my choice of welders), DIY all the way and still save money.

    I use a cut off wheel and a grinder to cut the head of the bolt from round to square sides to get a wrench onto it., try this and a small propane torch from underneath to heat up the factory loctite.

    i do not miss the swingout rear bumper at all.. its so nice to look back and actually be able to see out of the rear window. i am also a fan of not having to open the swingout to get raise the hatch or glass.

    hopefully this fall the piece of junk will get 2 more cylinders in the engine.

    small update.. just noticed yesterday that the only panel on my truck that is NOT dented, rubbed, or pushed in is the rear hatch. then i realized that was because of the rear swing out..which is gone now.

    gearing up for a club ride later this month.. gotta get on the ball and service the hubs and wheel bearings and replace a radius arm bushing.
