Your rig is killer and nicely done. Element seems to be quite content

yeah its basically done! i just out on some inner fender liners today. Went for a crawl after work as well at my spot. Its a lil too top heavy for crazy side angle stuff, but it still does well as a fully dressed C1 rig. super fun truck. it runs well over an hour...prolly 1.5hrs, including LED light use.

I ordered a gatekeeper from Amain, they were $317 shipped, and i want another one to go a bit nuts with. I dont wanna hack up the Sendero for that. These are great budget tinker toys for the winter months

also, heres the light bar and low roof rack in position....








Would you happen to have any pics during the process of cutting the tubing, and also the plastic flat-bed. Just trying to get some pointers before I start cutting away. Thanks

i took exactly 1" cut off each side, then drilled the old end holes at an angle through the original holes for the screws to allow the old screws to go in straight (as the side frames were now being bowed in, first pic shows screws before the angled hole was made), and drilled the cut ends and sent the screws in.

for the bed cover, i trimmed a bit, and fit and trimmed more and fit, then used old screw locations to secure, drilled holes in the tray close to the old pointds, and opened up till i found the old mount points. i painted it after all that.

Killer Sendero man! The pinch on the cage looks way better, you nailed it!

That is a great load of crap to crawl on there, every guy needs some of that around!
