nicely done!
Thanks man, too much time on my hands while I waiting for Jeep to deliver this damned thing! I think my mods will slow to a trickle now (if you ask my wife they will for sure) 😋 Now to have some adventures!

I'm down in CT but if this pans out and you guys are willing to let me tag along (once my JLUR is delivered, of course) please let me know. Just did a big ATV trip up at Jericho and loved it. Can only imagine how amazing it is in the fall. Also done a lot of Maine on the ATVs, the northern areas are the best.

We may end up doing a fall Jericho trip, if we do I'll PM you guys.

I thought I'd shared my first BAD build / vendor experience. Maybe it be be a cautionary tail for those who buy from Extreme Terrain.

My wife and I are north of 50 and I weigh more than a breadbox so climbing in and out of this rig results in occasional grunts and groans. I've also scuffed the paint up here with my boots / shoes while getting in:

On July 4th I saw Extreme Terrain had some good deals and I found a SWEET deal on Rock-Slide Engineering Gen 3 Step Sliders so I decided the deal was too good to pass up and ordered them. Here is my confirmation e-mail.

The order showed 'shipping soon' since I placed it but covid has taught me patience, I waited several months for my Rough Country Refrigerator.

While checking the slider order this week I decided to click the product link and got 'we no longer carry this product'. I figured it was some mistake so I chatted with XT customer support and they confirmed they don't carry it. I also reached out directly to RSE and they said XT never carried that product. WTF!? So, if I didn't click that link I would have waiting HOW LONG until someone told me 'whoops, sorry'? What if I carried a balance on my CC, would XT refund the interest?

I'm not sure how I feel about XT right now, they have been pretty good up until now but I may have to reconsider where I shop. I also decided to stick with my current sliders, the great deal sucked me in and I know I can get them for only $300 more elsewhere but the whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth. 2k is over the 'value' line for me.
