@Hondasxs ,@TripleB I may need some assistance the day before the Overland. If I don't get the skids in before I leave on the 14th of this month.
I've got a shop with hoist or use front end loader to stand up machines. Attach the Skidplate easily. Also have rivnuts to put in frame instead of self tapping screws.

@JACKAL Thank you for the invitation, If I can get @Hondasxs and @TripleB together we may just take you up on the offer. Would love to see your piece of heaven, and snoop around the subdivision too.👀

Added the Tusk rear seat plates for my Packout boxes. These worked perfectly, even when I was on my side. The 4 seater makes the perfect Overland machine. Enought room for 2 and all there gear.

The words 'mechanically sympathetic' don't even appear in your (plural) universe, do they? :oops:
I take great pains in maintaining all my equipment, I just don't have trailer queens. I just didn't pay attention to the " low talent " warning light before I laid it on her side!!!🤦‍♂️

Other than maybe some red lens tape and getting the missing door panel back on it looks perfectly fine to hit with a rattle can to prevent rust and run it 👍🏻💪🏻

And Flex Seal tape!!!!! It is the new duct tape of my world (and velcro straps)!!!! If look close at my Talons they have a lot of velcro and Flex Seal tape on it! Trying to work on a catchy phrase like duct tape has......"if you can't duct it then xxxx it. So maybe....."if you can't seal it then peal it" or "if you can't flex it then ???". It's a work in progress!!!!🤣😂🤣

Glad to see you are getting it back in shape Tram!!! Some of the fun is reliving it while fixing it!!

How did the Trail Armor trailing arms guards fit? Any issues? The site said they don't fit 2023+ R Live Valve Editions...

Yes sit I have been very pleased with them so far. As you can see she's not a trailer princess. I have abused them.prety well. And I ordered the previous year plate and arm guards. Fit fine.
