Since those ARB's appear to just be taking up space, you can ship them to Lawrenceville, GA. If you want, you can also ship over the axles. I'll even pay for shipping! :D

I doubt it, that's where I put my tranny filter/temp sensor. There's almost enough room for a second battery if he'd gone with E Lockers. Then he'd have the extra power for the winch and stereo and electric cooler and, and, and :D

You could have cleaned it a little first, Joe :rolleyes:

There was some sort of emissions box, that needs to go back in directly below the compressor, I know someday we will have testing here.

Phil- I did use the pressure washer on it earlier, it I got the X to clean then I would have to think about removing some dents :D
