Good to hear that you had an uneventful trip home, as compared to what you ran into on your trip to Utah.  It definitely looks like that could have broken into two parts at any moment!!

Holy smoke :o That case looks like it could have let loose the next time you drove it. Well that you discovered it when you did. And kudos to Strike Eagle. :occasion14:

Glad you made it back safe, let me know if you go back to one of those other cases, I'd like to come down and help you so I can learn how to do that someday too!

Thanks

Eaglefreek,

You took your Eagle on a beautiful trip. I love that red rock country in southern Utah.

Very nice front bumper on your Eagle.

Thanks. It was my second welding project. My first was the rear bumper with tire carrier. I bought a welder off of Ebay and figured it out. I did let a professional welder do the critical stuff though.
