    Ah, one question I forgot to get in to my last post. How do you like the jackery system? I'm between this and the goal zero and can't decide. Leaning toward the jackery. I have 20% off at moosejaw and need to pull the trigger soon. Thanks in advance.

    Based on all my research Jackery always seems to come out on top when compared head to head with other units. That's not to say it's perfect, but across the spectrum of abilities it continually racks up the most points.

    How are you liking the look and feel of the Westcott Designs lift?

    The look speaks for itself, but I would hate to compromise it's current ride quality.

    Still running the stock tires?

    I like the ride of the 2021 Pro in it's current stock form - only 900 miles thus far in less than three weeks! Very content with the stock look as well, but it does not take long to ponder the mods!

    Thanks!

    Awning installed. Not sure if I overthought installing it by myself - or not? but the install went exceptionally smooth :)
    With our temps hitting 108 to 110 now, ya gotta start a project before sunrise and be done by 10AM :mad: Life in "The Skillet" :(

    Order the 1.75 mounts and you're good to go. FWIW, the seller is easy to talk to - send him a message or give him a ring.

    @T4Rrunning > TIP: When mounting the awning to the round mounts. Use the lowest holes in the front mount, and the center holes in the rear mount - to make it level. Also, if you want mount separation numbers let me know. Having all that done pre install makes it a breeze.

    Thank you for the info on the shovel mount. Was it as simple as ordering the 1.75" diameter mounts and bolting them up? No other hardware or modification needed? How have you liked it since having it? Last thing I want is to have my shovel flying off on the highway but throwing my dirty shovel in the back every time is getting old. Would love for this mount to work. Thanks!

    It was that simple. No regrets on the purchase. Just make sure the 'quick fist clamps' fit your shovel handle tight enough to securely hold it in place.

    Great! Thanks so much. I was looking for a good shovel and axe option and the only other thing I have seen discussed was that plastic "monkey fist" stuff but that wasn't really something I wanted. This looks much more promising. Thanks again!
