    Finally got tired of looking at the rust on the dog legs. Driver side is definitely worse than the passenger side. Cleaned up and coated the areas with a rust inhibitor and black paint. Should slow the rust down until I can get the dog legs replaced.

    Not to bad looking. I was on China Wall and scraped all the Drivers side rust off LOL. Well almost anyway. The little rock on the driver side thought it was cool to scrape up my Rocker. :) I need to get my Sway Bars disconnected or make a quick disconnect for them. :)

    Hmmm I should’ve done your method of scraping rust instead:D Wire wheeling just throws a bunch of rust in your face:angryfire:

    Both you and I need rock sliders...

    Start with some quick disconnects and see how you like them. I used to have them but got tired of crawling on the ground... no sway bars at all anymore!

    Painted my swing out today... that turned into painting the bumper... which then turned into welding in a hitch receiver. Now I’ve got a rear recovery point and can tow a small utility trailer!

    Today I decided I needed to paint the front bumper as well. Painting this one didn’t turn into a bigger project though.

    That right there is the first symptom of "Restoration Syndrome" and is exactly how it gets started!
    It's a very long and slippery slope that one never truly recovers from. Be careful and recognize the problem and you might have a shot of limiting it's effects on your wallet!
