It's sort of your rack in a round-about sort of way. If memory serves me, it was built for NLX, then went on your old blue truck when Jay had it, then sold with the truck, then BL bought it from that dude.

Nice! Just keep the tire size and lift the same and you're all good. Great looking truck on the beach.

This brings back memories. Not sure where to start, with the 280z with the massive sub box, the kid with the cross colors hat on, or the guy with the blonde mullet. Classic.

In the spirit of being prepared, most of you guys wouldn't need these but I ordered sand stakes. I didn't have any on padre and ended up burying two rotopax 2 gal fuel pods to anchor a tent. Hopefully this will do it if I ever find myself in a similar situation.http://www.toughstake.com/
