Same rig with a few improvements for 2013.

updated lights, and skidplate mounts, new turn signals, needed after the last snow excursion, getting stuck on a tree.
Some new subframe/slider/reinfrocement/carrier bearing support work. Again, needed after the previous carrier mounts ripped out of the body on the last snow trip.
