Wired up my oba on/off switch and ran the air line to it. Also cut more of the front bumper away. And I replaced the cabin air filter.

Really liking the look of the bumper now.

It doesn't seem to affect it at all. All of the structure is still present. Lets just say its refined.

So I picked up some IF roof light bar mounts from AZGeorge a while back waiting for the day to buy a light bar. Well that day happened. I picked up a 43" curved bar.
I was dreading the install though. I knew from when I had my Xoskel light cage that my rivnuts were all striped out. So I had a slow day last week and I figured that Id take a crack at it. Dropped the headliner and removed the rivnuts. I hate those things. I replaced them with bolts and mounted the brackets and light bar. Not bad I must say. Holy wow is it bright.

The 285/75R16 Mastercraft Courser MTs ran their course. They lasted exactly three years. I have no idea how many miles I put on them. Had to be at least 30k. Not bad for a MT. At $160 a tire I would get them again. The performed nicely off road and on road.

This go around I wanted to try out a tire that has been gaining a lot of popularity. At $145 per tire(285/75R16) the Milestar Patagonia MT looked like a sure thing. I figured why not. The largest con i found for this tire is that it wears fast on the street. The Pro's definitely out weighted the Cons. For a MT you cant beat the price. They look awesome. Lots of sidewall protection. At $145 I wouldn't freak out if I damaged a tire and had to replace it.

Ive got a couple hundred miles on them now and they ride great on the road. I haven't had them off road yet.
