I failed tonight. No pictures and my new battery cables were too short. Need another alternative for wiring the winch. Still haven't found my license plate, so I'll likely grab a green sticker out there or get a DNR sticker here.

It is ready to be loaded on the trailer tonight.

to do:
winch power wiring (plan to use remote for trip and wire in-dash later)
find and zip tie license plate to spare tire
check and top off fluids

It's been raining like crazy down here. My biggest fear was sinking my truck in my back yard while getting the trailer this morning.

Looks awesome. I've alwasy wanted to wheel with a rig locked front & rear on 35's.

Beefy, 55 degrees & over an inch of rain pretty much killed the snow.

I remember wheeling with you when you were locked front and rear on 35s.

It takes some a lifetime to achieve "locked front and rear on 35s" status!

Well John dropped it off here at the shop so we can load up tonight. My boss is out back doing laps with it. He says it gets it pretty good.

Well he seems a little light headed but I figured that was from jumping it off the truck well wall.

Yesterday I asked someone where Jim worked and when he told me I was like "I was just there". Thanks again for the wheel.
