I second that. I would be willing to pay you for this kind of work as well considering ECR is about three years out on their waiting list and your work is some of the finest I've ever seen.

Thanks for the compliments!

We worked on the truck for a few hours yesterday.
1. Adjusted front and rear pinion angles to mitigate drive shaft vibrations
2. Attached bonnet and installed Dynamat on the underside
3. Installed Silblade wipers

From this short list, you can tell the project end is near.

Just was looking through this again. Where did you get your frame? Did it come galvanized? NAS frame with 300 tdi engine mounts?

My wife caught me looking at this post last night on my phone. She could see the look in my eyes and took one look at me and said... NO!

Should be ready by the next meet up...hopefully it will be at the entrance of a trail.

The battery box was galvanized and the seat box was Rhino Lined.


Charles, four years ago, I contemplated selling my truck and my wife stopped me. She said I would regret it. Bottom line, everyone needs a Build Plan...and if you're married, it starts with the spouse!
