It drives me nuts how much these companies splash their logos all over everything.

 

The “de-badging” turned out nice!

 

I agree!  When purchasing vehicles in the past I've told them to remove their dealership logo stickers before leaving the lot.

did a quick paint re-fresh on the front bumper, it was looking a little rough (pitted/chipped). Krylon Satin Black spray paint is my goto for all the miscellaneous black metal areas.

Nice! Do you rattle can it or use a sprayer? Need to do something about mine soon too.

been working on extending my custom spare water/fuel bracket to be able to mount the can a little higher if i'm on a difficult trail (so the bottom corner doesn't catch on any boulders or ledges):

finished with that little project! here's the original bracket i made back in 2018 to mount a Geri container on the Teraflex Alpha Tire Carrier Hinge:

and now, extended upwards:

so my fuel or water tank can still site about the same place as before, or i can quickly move it up a notch if i'm on a difficult run and worried about dragging the tail.

 

normal:

high-clearance mode:

i also drilled one of the Geri latches to fit a small lock so as to discourage the can from just up and walking away!

the Geri water/fuel cans and latches are made by Expedition One.

finally got most of the mud cleaned off from our Woodchute Trail run - there really wasn't a lot, but i swear it seemed like it was Elmer's Glue based!
