we'll probably have it finished enough to wheel tonite, Holshot just about got the cab mounts done last nite. That just leaves wiring up some brake lights and it'll be ready for the mud bog this sunday.

I gota give you cheap thrill guys some credit. You constantly beat the shit outta vehicles (ones that would most likely not see anything other than a junk yard otherwise)
Then destroy one and basically shrug it off and morph it into another equally/more capable rig in a matter of days.
And from the looks of things cost is pretty low.

Keep it up, I sure as hell appreciate it

you make all us jeepers look like whiney bitches

I added about ten pounds to be back- i put on my Solid diff cover that i won at the pig gig.



I swapped out my T-case for a manual one so now i don't have to crawl underneath the truck no more to get four wheel drive.
Also here's a pic of my spare tire carrier. not bad for about a hour and a half worth of work.
