I am digging the plate-based welded-on mirror mounts—have not seen them done like that before, but I really like ‘em! Charlie Brown’s riveted offerings are damn nice as well.

Documentation is superb!

Miller Lite is an odd beverage choice. For the same price point you could have enjoyed the ever-popular Coors Light; alternatively, if saving a few bucks was the goal, Keystone Light would have provided similar ‘drunk achievement’ results on a tighter budget.

Edit: the 1” cocksucker die produced fairly decent results on the 3/4” tube. I don’t see any readily apparent shittiness.

I may grind the weld flat to make them transition better into the door

The Miller was $22 for 36 pack, so it intrigued my interest

That's because those 2 bends were the 4th and 5th attempts lol

That turned out rad! I think I can make my 2.9 work with 31s since you’re running one with 35s haha
You'll be plenty fine. I'm running 5.13's and it moves pretty good. Only thing I would suggest, which I haven't done yet, is run the 4.0 clutch/flywheel. The 2.9 one seems to want to slip a lot. I'm hoping it makes an improvement. The 2.9 is where it's at, let the naysayers naysay.
