    I live vicariously through our forum members. Anyone have big plans for their tax returns?

    I am stalking an ARB front bumper and associated accessories, but I should probably buy the materials to build the back deck, terraces, and garden boxes that my wife wants.

    When I saw the title of your post, I thought maybe you devised a clever plan to get a tax deduction on 4x4 upgrades.

    That would be nice. No. I just rely on the IRS to be my savings account for the year. Smart? No. But, it works for us.

    I wish. My family plan is to always replenish our savings account after paying for property taxes as we don’t use escrow. We do plan on purchasing a ShiftPod 2 tent instead of a RTT in a month or two though.

    I like to owe the IRS just a little bit. I submit my return ASAP and send the payment 4/15. Sometimes I do get a refund, but I don't consider it free money to spend on "whatever." That's just me.

    I wouldn’t mind dropping $3k on a ARB front bumper and Tactical 4x4 rear bumper if I got back a lot of cheddar from the IRS. I been upgrading all the ugly yellow light in my LR4 to LED the last two months. Looking good.

    I agree - don’t spend it on “whatever” - spend it on the truck! ;)

    I just got a set of front runner drawers today. Working on an inside sleeping platform setup.

    I put an xlifter on my LR4 recently, its pretty nice kit. The leveling pitch/roll for camping is going to be amazing. No more fuss leveling it out (which was even just annoying for cooking on the tailgate.

    Other things I have my eye on. Upgraded shocks (Still researching, koni raid maybe, not sure). Lucky8 HD CV shafts?, Probably around the same time I get new airbags and control arms, just do it all at once.

    Otherwise I have everything on this thing that I could want for the type of touring/camping I like to do. Sitting at like 78k miles, using it for trips only, not daily driven for the past 3 years.
