Corroded wiring blew the fuel pump fuse. Wiring was cleaned up and it fired up.
Home now and really dirty from the trip.

I have a few odds and ends to clean up. Like with the new tank skid, the axle side track bar nut and bolt are contacting the skid. Need to flip them.
I can see when that mod would be useful for larger tires than 35s, but then there are many other factors, and expenses, to worry about. Also, what's not said about the whole low center of gravity thing is you give up shock travel. With my build, I've realized the limits you're up against when you don't build to a larger tire size and shock travel. Not that it's bad for me, but it does limit what I can do. I knew this up front though!No clearance issues. I just curious. My tyres may contact the flare at times.
Maybe I should save time and expense and leave well enough alone.
