Here you can see my front tire about 40 inches off the ground
I’m not really sure about the brake line clearance, but I’m sure it’s fine 🤣🤣🤣🤣

still trying to convert the other angle from the other video from non-potato quality, imagery, and full detail

Wow, that's some serious wheelin'! Your bumper modifications look great!
 
Oh, I almost forgot about this
Yeah, here’s a picture of my wheel hanging like a foot off the ground

With the 3” inch RPG perch collar
It still seems like there’s plenty of slack in the brake line
Thanks, that was the perfect picture!

Trying to edit some film
I don’t have a laptop or desktop
Looking into that now
Here are some damage clips as a test run for the better footage of potts mtn where I actually got some film besides the dash cam

I’ve been trying to learn how to use an iPad as well as a video editor system
I’ve had nothing but my cell phone for over a decade
Here is a quick butchered clip that I was able to string together from memorial weekend trip to Potts Mountain
 
In-depth video! It looks like fun was bad by all!

The carrier was raptor specific bolt pattern
But was M12 studs and not quite centered
So after some trying to add video
They were all too long
Made a 4:00 you tube on this subject

Basically, the Raptor specific adapter was the correct bolt pattern
But they were M12 studs and not M14x1.5

So I went off to Fab Depot
And create a solution with the welder before it started raining

Here is also a link to the first bit of footage from this weekend

More from the raptor when I can
Gotta try to weld up some more skid plate
And oil change

 
Pretty great quality
fit really well
And half of the cost of OEM I’m definitely psyched
Have you noticed any sound difference? I'm thinking of changing out, but I will probably put down some form of sound mat just because I have in everything I've worked on.

I don’t really notice much of a difference
I also come from construction and I’m half deaf🤣

I did get a muddy and the cooler melted all the ice, which was nice to drain right out of the floor

Here’s a daily update of some extra skid plate. I’m adding.
To help cover some of the area by the swaybar
