Prictures are deceiving .. this is the same spot that Brimey??? got stuck on top of and it's been named "Can Opener" for a reason.

You gotta keep your rig in once piece long enough for me to wheel with you one more time.

Oh yeah, almost forgot ... at least I built this turd and didn't buy it. How much do you guys spend in gas trailering your rigs to JCR for the next trendy part?
I'm going for that wheeling a tank look.

MY rig has never been to JCR. I'm too poor.

I'm poor ... it'll be around for awhile ... I can't say if the body will be or not.

I'll have it at OTSC the 30th and I can't leave out the Waterford Memorial Day Parade .... should a poll be started on whether or not it should be washed for that?

It's too late for that now ... I felt like a dumbass when I asked them if they had done a cage for an XJ before even looking at their site.

They do good work, but not JPfab good. :tonka:

So you really need to post this in more than one forum? I thought there were forum rules against that.

Is this another "look at me" post?:chiefwoohaw::chiefwoohaw:

It is ... but I'm not going to utilize the upper, as of yet. I'm going radius style 1st to see how it works.
