Never google Chainsaw Kickback Injury. You've been warned.
What’s funny is that during the 10 years I worked in the timber industry with a chainsaw in my hands, most of them 044 or bigger with at least a 32 inch bar, not once did I ever have a saw “kick back” or lose control of it.

Had an old timer tell me long ago, work the saw or it will work you. No truer words were ever spoken.

I see people putting 37-38 inch tires on a Gladiator or Wrangler and saying “it don’t need no regear, it’s great with that 8 speed trans”

:bs

I had 35’s on my JL. Anything bigger and I never would have seen 8th gear again. These people pushing that BS are smoking dope.

They will be replacing a lot of, steering gear, drive shafts, suspension, etc. You cannot fix stupid, but you can make money fixing their stuff.

Rigid flush mounts came in yesterday. The Curt 7 pin jumper harness earlier this week. I'll probably start working on the wiring harness for rear lights this weekend. Thinking of adding a switch so I can manually turn on the floods as well as being triggered by reverse lights.

Old, worn out, "I'm a serious overlander", and tired: Another map on their vehicle and post a pic of it on Facebook.

Well played sir: It was the Goonies treasures map.

What is this madness! I've added weight and my gas mileage went up. I started using mid-grade gasoline but that can account for this. I was getting about 15/16 mpg before.The only thing I can think of that can explain it is that the addition of the rear bumper changed the weight distribution from 53%/47% front/rear to 45%/55% front/rear.

This is sitting on the exit ramp at the light off interstate 270.
