Decided to add a bumper, winch, road feeder, and build a high rack.
Bumper didn't come with hitch so had to add one.
Next upgraded will be 40" light bar front and a 12" on rear.



Going to add some removable camo panels to high rack to keep my kiddo in it safe when she rides.

Actually we did and still have 3" left in shock shaft. But already ordered heavier springs. Rides pretty good now.

I would still be worried about taking any extreme angles with people in the rack. They can flip very easily.

Yes the center of gravity has changed. Going to do a little experiment on lunch tomorrow. Going to see at what angle it will lay over at. Side to side and the front to back. I will put 500lbs on the seat to test it.

No it will involve a forklift with a well placed strap to keep it tire side down.
