She also has crutches up in the rafters, now I'll have 2 options to choose from to make "Ryan's style" bump stops. 😃

Ok, so the crutches shaft was too small (7/8" diameter), grabbed the walker and viola, shafts are 1 1/8" diameter...  PERFECT!  Plus there's a plastic collar that attaches so after I cut them to size I can reinstall the collar and not have to worry about sharp edges cutting the OEM rubber bump stop.  The collar also helps the shaft fit really snug (I know... "that's what she said"🤣) to help keep it in place.  Thanks again to @4x4tographer for sharing his ingenious idea for home made bump stops. 😎

Today I installed my MORryde RotopaX hing mount with my FuelpaX mount and FuelpaX 3.5 gallon gas can.  Unless I'm going to use it the FuelpaX mount screw handle and gas can will not be attached, most likely only get used while overlanding.  @theksmith, guess what?  Now I can have my cake AND eat it too! 🤣  When I first looked into these parts I was looking at $260+ for everything, after doing more looking around I only spent about $202 for everything. 😎

Did a quick test run of my new air mattress for my rig this morning after doing an underside/chassis inspection and greasing my driveshaft & u-joint.  This Deepsleep 4 Jeeps air mattress is going to work AWESOME!  Glad I purchased one for trips where a tent isn't doable. 😎

Well, this air mattress turned out to be a big piece of 💩!  Aired it up when we set up camp, several hours later it was still full and I even attached the pump just to make sure, now all good to go.  Made sure the cap was on nice and tight and then crawled in and laid down for the night.  Within 10-15 minutes the mattress was deflated and I ended up trying to sleep (barely got any shut eye) on the hard floor of my rig, very upset and disappointed! 🤬

 

Update: Maybe not a pile of crap after all.  Inflated it, I laid on it for a minute then had the twins lay on it together for a few minutes and it doesn't appear to be losing air, then I laid on it again for about 10 mins and no air loss.  Now it's a big mystery...

The only thing I can think of is the valve caps weren't air tight because I didn't push the valve inside the mattress.  With it sticking out it was up against the door which I think put pressure on the valve causing it to deform a bit resulting in a slow leak.  Lesson learned, next time make sure the valve is pushed in AND bring my small tent with my queen size 22" tall air mattress that I KNOW works very well. 🙄
