All the trail rash is from the rocks or the trails. If you beg to differ, than PLEASE, feel free to follow me when it gets done.

As said best by Chop, "Anyone who thinks an exo cage or tube to protect body panels are not needed in michigan, then I would like you to follow me and not bitch when you blow out windows and flat out total your rig."

It will get weighed when it gets done. Chop is going to have it weighed and then hold something like a 50/50 drawing to see who gets the closest.

Thanks so much for your honest and positive comments. I appreciate you coming forward and laying it on the table.

I too, hope that the new upgrades make it more reliable and I actually get a chance to enjoy the event or trail ride.

I also know that the bacon pockets thing is just to ease the tension. But I also think that it would be even funnier if I did get sponsored by Hot Pockets, or something related to it. Chop gave me the idea, so if I do get sponsored, Chop gets some of the royalties.

Thanks again, your post says a lot about who you are.

The rig looks different and cool in it own way... I think your going to need a supercharger with that hemi cause this thing might weight asmuch as a tank but it will be indestructable. For the , I have never met you in person so I have no views of you. I look forward to seeing this done and maybe if I ever get mine done i might just possible see ya on the trail.

The bacon pockets thing is a joke that someone on here made up a while back. If I had to assume, it was related to my weight.

The sponsor thing about the bacon pockets is just to add to the humor. "Wouldn't it be funny if Anthony got sponsored by Hot Pockets because of the created here?"

As for the overall sponsorships, due to it's unique qualities and some media coverage, some companies have sponsored the vehicle in one way or another.

I hope this helps.

hopefully we'll see it out at the Mounds in the spring. It should hold up much better than it has in the past. I remember you breaking a few axle shafts...

Thanks. I am hoping that it will hold up much, much better now.

The next upgrade, when I get the $$$ are Ouverson's 2" x 47 spline HD Axle Shafts, which means I'll have to get rid of the detroits and use his Lockers too. But that's like $2,250 per axle, for the conversion package.

I think I will play with what I have for now, and upgrade IF I break.

I'm hoping it gets done before the spring, so maybe you'll see it sooner somewhere else.

I thought it was because of the cheesy ass 3m hood scoops you have. Why would you do something that makes it look soooo cheap after overbuilding the shit out of everything else?

With rockwell 2.5 tons and a 40" bogger, Im sure the only way you will break an axel is opperator error. You should probably save yourself the labor charge and down time and do it now.

The hood scoops were the first thing ever done to the rig. I just haven't had the new functional hood painted and installed yet.

And the boggers are 44's not 40's. Not that it matters much, I just don't want the wrong info out there to get blown out of wack 6 months from now.

As for breakage, shit happens, and it doesn't mean operator error. But the labor is so simple with rockwells. It is actually easier to change axle shafts on rockwells than it is on standard axles. I put these back together myself after the lockers were installed. So all I would be in for is down time.

But thanks for your concern. I appreciate you looking out for my best interest.

End result, even if we did get it ready to go, the body shop said they coudn't have all of the work that they needed to do done in time.

Another reason is 2TMO didn't want to just get it ready for SEMA without first making sure that everything was the way they wanted it to be. We have changed so many things from the first design, that I am sure we will be changing something else along the way as well.

I wanted a finished rig on display, instead of a work in progress and so did everyone else involved.

But for those of who would like to know, it is already in the works for making an appearance on the SEMA floor next year in an exhibitor's booth.

I heard you were going. I am sorry I missed the event, I was looking forward to seeing ya' out there. Chop went though.
