    Guy down the road has the MOTO wheels for about a year. They are nice. Costly. Being discontinued! must be recent.

    Got seat covers. Had to. So much White Labrador hair!! Ordered Rugged Ridge Ballistic set for all seats in black. They fit well. I'm happy. They don't slide a round. Stitched well and made strong. Top and Bottom are separate pieces. For the front I got two passenger side tops! and no front seat bottoms!! UHG!! Working out the details now. We will see.

    I also ordered a "Fur Zoff"!! We will see how well that works!

    This is the brush I use to clean hair off and out. It works fairly well dry and better if damp.

    Looks nice.

    Are the rear control arms lengthened properly?. The rear appears to be further forwards than id expect.
    Maybe the anglf or lighting.

    Good Catch!!
    Yeah, I struggled with knocking out the Tabs on the Front & Rear Control Arms. I figured I'd have a Pro Shop make the final adjustments. I want a good ride with no problems. I was pondering on making the adjustments myself but have know idea what angles to shoot for!
