I also have a few panels that are creaking and rattling, but I just attribute it to being a truck.
I can help with the ohc. My mount bracket didn't fit the contours of my roofline real well so there is a half inch gap at the front. I'm gonna put some installer foam in the gap to make it look a bit better.

Me and chris had a pretty good time tonight. Found a nice set of trails, and a little bit of mud. Its good to start meeting up with you guys. Bring friends, I don't care if they drove rangers, just good to get some guys together and have some good clean, dirty, fun.

Sounds good man. Can't wait til the 4th. I am getting laid off again at the end of this month, but that just gives me time to do some more of the easier, but time consuming mods, like grinding off the rust on my frame and finally painting my wheels.

I might have to drive up from TN and meet up with you guys, What time of day were you guys thinking to meet up. So far as I don't have to work I'd be game to run up and go wheeling. I'm running stock suspension on 31s though so don't want to get her to deep. Already had her stuck once, pain in the dick!

We took a couple old mine roads and wound up about 4 miles into some dirt/gravel service road and then took a nice little uphill detour into some "less traveled" trails, and then probably another half mile or so down a nice little oil service road. Had probably another 2 or 3 hours worth of running and wandering left if we wanted it, but I had to go get my boy, so we cut it short. Still had a good bit of fun.

There is also a really nice hill climb around mason landing that I want to go up to and break down some of the ruts so those of us with smaller trucks can climb her. Real good looking hill, bout 2~300 ft. Fairly straight, but a lot of chop that can cause attitude changes in the chassis while climbing it.

Ideally, I would think around 3~4pm at Turonis pizza in Evansville. The forget-me-not inn on Weinbach has a better parking situation than the brewery down town.
I will link the locations for you guys.
Turoni's locations

I can meet as early as you want. I prefer the earlier morning so the sun isn't in my eyes while I play Meeting for lunch would make it easier for all of us to get good parking and whatnot, less of a crowd.
