    Alright, thoughts on recovery gear layout?

    Tires stay where they are. Everything else can move around.

    have two extinguishers, two fuel jugs, two water jugs, jack, traction boards, tools and extra fluids go in the tool box, a shovel, and I think that’s it. I’m thinking about trying to fit a cooler and one day plan for an air tank...

    am I missing anything?

    thought on the layout? You can’t really see the jack, and other stuff is still on order....

    A nice cooler should fit with one of your 5 gal jugs in front of the tires. The other jug might fit with one of your water jugs? Where's the jack at?

    Was thinking a cooler could take the place of the fuel jugs.
    Move extinguisher to wheel well?

    traction boards will go opposite side of jack, shovel opposite side of jack handle

    Well after a few all nighters getting things together I made it out to the trails. It’s been a long fun journey that is almost over with, still have a some parts to install but over what an awesome rig. Very happy with her.

    The drone shot really shows how much wider the new glass makes the truck compared to stock. She’s got some curves...

    So feedback on performance characteristics with the 39’s vs the 37’s you had?

    Sorry for the late response! I live Clearwater. I have been up to the Citrus wildlife area but not up to Ocala yet. Been there to their downtown area but not in the truck. I actually don't have FB or IG so not up on the social media stuff.

    How did the cardboard and scotch tape hold up in the inner fenders?
