    IED's...….you just never know what's under a bump in the road.

    Interior pics coming soon. It's mid 2000's designer chic.....we redid the whole thing ourselves in 2005. Upholstery and paint anyway. This year I did the cab interior.

    It’s not a hitch hauler. I tried that it sucked. I extended the chassis with large section angle iron and built a stage just the correct size for two Yamaha XT225’s using front wheel chock thingies. I welded the new extension direct to the original chassis. Actually I first made it 8 feet wide and four feet deep....but I eventually cut it down somewhat smaller. Ten people can stand on it and it makes no difference...yes I’ve tried that!

    Nice rig. I thought you had 4 friends to help shovel it out. No trailer I like that. Looks like you might need some helper springs in the back.

    It’s time for new leaf springs they are frowning quite a lot, I’ll get shocks too...I also like raising blocks or air bags but I need to see how that will work with my dry bollock jacks. It came with four hydraulics that cost almost $5000 back then! It’s nice sitting in the cab and levering the controls and watching the level lights go from red to green. They are so strong you can lift the front wheels off the ground. Our last trip took its toll on the rear suspension......plus I had front tires replaced at a Walmart in Nevada and after that the rear just never came back!? It’s been sitting level for years even with bikes on. But I looked underneath and the leafs are frowning instead of smiling...even with no load on. I’d like to raise it as high as I can....it looks bad ass jacked up.

    Put a door on the back and you'll have a nice deck.

    Thanks.
    The grill is heavy duty expanded metal from a scrap pile.
    I'm on the look out for a scrap pile front bumper...the chrome one is WAY too nice.

    Fuck yeah! Except.....no. I'll scrounge up some metal. I'd like to put a winch on it, some hooks and a ball for backing a boat in to the water. Yes, tow ball in front, makes it easy. Just day dreamin'.....it will happen sooner OR later........ how's the ticket sales?

    tickets are selling, not as quickly as i thought they would, but theyre trickling in.

    I've decided if it gets to 47 tickets, ill still raffle it off. thats about 50% of what i have in it TBH, so someone should be stoked.

    Are people picking numbers or are you selling in order as they come in? Doesn't the lottery go from 1-59?
