The emission testing is not mandatory here yet but the visual test for inspection is.  Some places are a little tougher than others here.

Been toying with the idea of fabbing some gap guards for the body lift.  I finished up one side of the rear today.  A little undercoating and wahlah.

Are they welded in, or...???  What gauge steel?

Used a roll of some thin flashing for roofing.  Used some small bolts and lock washers that way its removable.  Initially, I was gonna use it for the engine compartment so I needed it thin so it can be flexible. They are only gap guards which are usually rubber kinda like mud flaps.

Probably helps keep it OFF the engine too, & that's never a bad thing!   :thumbsup:

i get trying to keep the engine bay cleaner with it but i could see it making it hard to remove all the mud from on top of the frame toward the back.

Its a catch 22. Less mud will get thrown in there but the mud that does will be harder to spray out.  As for the motor, that mud gets burned on like a dirty film. Visually just the rear gap at a distance when you can see daylight out the other end.

Good use of an off the shelve item in an out of the box method  i was looking at a roll of the same stuff in my shop thinking i should use it for a project on the truck.

Guess that kinda sums it up. Bored & Cheap :sleepytime:

Will you be putting the Ole Ram through its paces at hidden falls this time around??

I promise not to try and help you with any fuel issue and simple direct you to a professional like Noah  ::)

I'll be taking her out again. 

That time that I "broke down", it turned out that I was out of gas.  Gas gauge was inop at that time. A defective O2 sensor caused me to run super rich and ran me out of gas. That 5 gallon can you gave me only got me to the freeway to give you an idea.  I changed the fuel pump and suddenly the gauge worked.  On the next trip to HF it took 2 tanks of gas to get there and that's only a 2.5 hour drive.  Changed the O2 sensor and drove like a charm. So if I had filled up at that gas station you towed me to, I could have taken it on home. :violent1:
