I have already added a folding front windshield, soft back window, winch, mirror, and back bumper. I'm wanting 14" wheels and 28" tires but haven't found a good deal on them yet. A radio is also on my wish list. I am going to build a heat shield to protect the heat from the exhaust pipe to the rear end this weekend. I have a used piece of aluminum road sign that I will probably use for that. If I have enough aluminum left over, I am going to make skid plates for both the front and rear differentials and put them in place of the plastic ones that came on it. It still baffles me as to why they built skid plates to protect the differentials out of plastic.

I have a piece of diamond plate left that is large enough for heat shield in back also. Going to get it started soon. I have some exhaust wrap that I'm undecided to use as well. You might have filled my weekend. Lol With the diff guards too.

I like how they made the bolts that hold the guards on go in at an angle as not to wear the bolt heads off but they should have used something stronger in my opinion. I plan on notching my aluminum plate with my plasma cutter to make a "tab" then I'll drill that tab to accept the bolt that holds it in place.
