One thing that was brought to my attention with the flag deal, some parks require the flag to be on the front of the truck. Badlands just happens to not care as long as it is 2' above the the truck. So if you come up with a good way to do it you might be farther ahead mounting it towards the front of the truck for running in other parks down the road.


I am just going to stick mine on my spare tire carrier hopefully. When I build a new front bumper I might move the mount up there but I don't know how many more trail rides my '85 is going to go on.

My credo
I sniff fuel for a living. Don't judge me!
I’ll have to take a look at the front bumpers on both for that. I think the bumper on the 2011 is a cover over steel, which may complicate things. I haven’t paid that close of attention to the bumper on the 2019.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Took care of the steering issue with the defective traverse bar. I machined a piece to weld on the bottom. I'm happy with the way it turned out. I'll do an alignment tomorrow.

Traverse bar with new piece almost ready to weld on.

Traverse bar repaired/modified and ready for the tie rods to be attached.

Ready for alignment. Tie rod geometry is much better now, too.
