Helwig is replacing my helper spring brackets, which is awesome of them. I lost them, and told them so. I intended to order but these things are lifetime so they insisted in sending me the 8 u-bolts, brackets and 24 nuts/washers. Awesome company.

Filling the 'pool' up again today for the kids. 4WP tomorrow.

And... tomorrow is my amazon shipping day. I have some fuses, adapters and randoms coming... Ebay, a new CB coax, 9', better for my application.

My front driveshaft is getting rebuilt today with a double-cardan joint. This is probably something I should have done from the beginning. I've consistently had problems up front with the lift.

After having to pry the wife out of the seatbelt I needed a new latch. The WD40 allowed us to lock it in but not get it back out! I almost had to cut the belt but decided to destroy the latch instead. Much cheaper to replace.

This one came off a 2011:

A little dinged up:

Good enough.
