I am seriously jealous. Wicked dialed build; ok, pretty jealous but good for them. But they already have BR110 #3 and enough property to have designated off road rigs? um....WTF?!

At the very least - what size Swamper SSR's are those - would love the look of that wheel/tire combo on my 90. Maybe having that setup might make me feel better about my little 90 ST.

If you think 2 BR110s (not bad considering only 4 exist right now) is bad you should see the guys collection. He even has some real tanks!

The Swampers are 265/70s.

We are putting that same size and wheel combo on project #157, so you'll get to see what they look like on a 90 soon.

Mike would you mind sharing how thick the aluminum is that you used for the floor plates here (and if you know of a good place to source them)

Its 1/8" and has square tube supports tig'd on to make it strong enough for foot traffic under its extended length.

We get all our metals from various commercial suppliers out of Boston, but the places we use all require large wholesale accounts.
Try any small fabrication shop in your area, they should be able to get you anything you want.

Actually I made quite a few changes today, but just of text and got rid of a lot of outdated crap. The site sort of has a mind of its own at this point. I only listed the 2 new small projects that are going on on the update page.

I think Mike might be out for a few, I emailed him a few days ago and haven't heard anything.

Where are you at in Afghanistan? I'm at Camp Phoenix in Kabul.

And yeah, Mike needs to get on updating the site. Seems kinda slow in the summers though when he's out goofing off.

Mmh. Can I be the first to throw in my vote that Mike shouldn't be allowed to have a life and/or enjoy himself? It really doesn't benefit the rest of us .

So how about an open house on Monday Carey? We could tour the shop and poke around in all those cool trucks you guys have up there. I'm sure Mike wouldn't mind.

Gary, well I would need to charge a hefty cover charge, which would most likely be my severance package.
What's really funny to me is that I really don't see the appeal of looking at Defenders anymore. They are not "rare" to me. I can look out back and see 5-7 110's and twice that in 90's at any given point of time. However, just because I feel that way doesn't mean others do, so .....

There will be a $2500 cover charge per person.








Just Kidding.........

There are five Golden Tickets. The lucky boy or girl to find one of the tickets will be invited to tour ECR. One lucky boy or girl will receive an extra special prize at the end of the tour.

I want to go back to Maine.

The last vacation I had (ok, it was not really a vacation, I just took the weekend off) was for the winter romp.
