If you wheel hard enough long enough anything can and will break. The point is to try and keep it to minimuim. Jack I was only giving you a hard time as I knew you included (a 49 year old) my rig as a cool kid BTW thanks it is nice at my age to be counted as one of the cool kids Lets go wheel!!!!!

I know you were just kidding Jim. Hell you and Joe have taught me about 90% of what I know about wheelin and rigs. You have built a monster rig and it shows every week when you put it back on the trailer under it's own power.

On Xmas morning I installed black powder coated, diamond plate rear corners from Warrior products. ( I also have front fender tip covers...but they didnt send me the black pop rivets with it, so waiting to install those.)

And today, I installed a 6 speaker soundbar (camo) and a new JVC in-dash player.

Next up: Camo roll bar pads and a new top.

Finished wiring my overhead switches and temporarily installed a pair of LED light panels into the rear of my storage box.





I wanted to see how well they will work before I install them permanently.

Look what Brown did for me today.

I'll try to get it put on this weekend if it warms up. I'll need some sunshine to help stretch the top out some.
