So Like most of you guys know I'm bored at home without a drivers license (FAH Q Nj) so I made some dropped shock mounts for the Red Rover. I can make just about any lift or drop (within reason).


Heres the 2.5" drop I made for some for some one


Im using 1/4" steel some 3/16 for gussets and a grade 8 hardware. Price is $65 plus shipping includes new grade 8 mounting bolts.

I am serious about the parts business. I'm really looking into starting a business on the side that's LR related.

I should know something later this week on some front bumpers, itll be similar to RTE slim line in style. Im getting them to price all the pre cut material and I'll weld and finish them. I even have a guy locally that does powdercoating but after hearing everyone complain about how they hate RTE's powdercoat im on the fence on doing that yet. Hopefully in next couple years in can get my shop setup to make some other parts (radius arms, sliders, bumpers, etc.....) I just dont want it to be a full time job just more of a hobby.

LOL. Probably if I had one to go by I could make something very similar.
I dont know if you ever seen the A-bar style on Justins white DII but the front I'm doing will be a cross between that and RTE's A-bar for the front. I been looking at something similar to HLC's rear bumper with a swing away rear tire mount.

Id be game. Like I said though Id want to keep it more of a hobby then a job. Honestly what ever I make and sell in my shop I never use that money, it just goes into buying newer better equipment (im wanting a new plasma cutter mine will only cut 3/16" on a single pass). And honestly I can do better in the shop im not very mutch of a people person.

Yea I only work with people all day every day but since I'm some what tech savvy it's a good combo. We can chat at the pines if you make it out.

Yea I will have empty seat since Hannah isnt coming. I was going to bring my pitbull Blair but I think she is going to look at places with my GF that weekend. They are going to check out a house on a horse farm in York Haven this weekend. Have to make sure all the animals get a long.
