Sweet rig. I gotta believe this rig will sell in about 8.6 seconds at a BBQ comp.

Dave, you will be invited to the first test run, and I might let you help me cook. :) OK, here are some updates. Still lots to do.

Got a little more done today, but not much. The back diamond plate panel will have the tail lights and license plate. There will be a stainless piece in between the two counters, another stainless shelf above the fresh (white) water tank, the dirvers side will all be hinged aluminum doors, still need to get the water pump and heater and a bunch of other stuff. Tick tock, tick tock.

I'm really digging custom builds lately, seen enough Jeeps built, this is just awesome. You should consider renting it out rather than selling it, that's a lot of work to off it, unless of course you want/need the lump sum.

keep it up, looks good. Wish I was around that weekend.

We will see. I need the $ but if I cant sell it for what I think it is worth then maybe I will keep it and rent it out. Its kind of late in the season to be selling something like this up here. I will probably build another one on a little bigger trailer once this one is gone. Thanks for the kind words people.

Made some progress. Finished mounting most of the diamond plate. I still need to add hinges to the doors and I will add some around the smoker once that gets mounted. Took it all back apart to finish weld it. Thats all done except a few gussets that I need to finish. Changed out the tongue because it was bent. Primed and painted it. I had to make some visual progress to keep myself motivated. I got the racks for the smoker mostly done but need to get the thing mounted to finish the smoker itself. I think thats most of it. SHould make some good progress tomorrow.

Here are some updates. I am definately not entering the comp. I might have this done. We are leaving friday morning, so I have two more days. Not looking great, but might be done enough to take up there with a for sale sign. I still need to sand, paint and mount the smoker. Still a bunch of small details, but I am getting real close. There are still some things I would like to buy / add on to the trailer like some shelvs in certain spots and a hot water heater at some point.

Tonight maybe? The insulation is one of the last things to get installed so it has been low on the priority list. But drinking a cold bud light with you is up there on the list.

Why are you wanting to sell it after putting in all that work?
