    Awesome. My First Sergeant and I welded those rear springs drop retainers when we were in Colorado Springs. The retainers and the diff sliders (not diff guards, those were a transplant from our RR GDE) all came from Rockware in Colo Sprgs. First Sergeant Dailey is now the 4th Infantry Division Command Segeant Major, serving in Afghanistan. I guess I trained him pretty well

    On the 61 hybrid, I had fabbed up a new rear tub lock-box... a little personalization as well (cool hand Luke - long story), with custom family cup holders, plus took out the rear bench seats and added jump seats.Bren,
