I haven't had a boost car or truck in a long time, it's for the air compressor & tank

I got busy this weekend. Added Rusty's uni-body strengtheners on both sides, steering box plates, steering box brace, and drag link brace. Looks like it should stiffen things up a bunch. Even found that one of my shocks was bad.

Finally decided to wait 3 hrs at the mvd to get my trailer registered. But it's now official. Also picked up some tail light guards on the way home.

Permanent plate is on. Now to finish painting. Primer is already done. Still pondering the paint scheme.

Don't know. While grinding it down I noticed it was a rental in it's former service. It's got some nice leads on her. It should handle everything I need it to. I'm thinking about going with a hand rattle can camo.

Even better looking in person Tim, good seeing you and the girls today.



I outfitted the rig with Flash Gear Sniper Kit, Assault Pak 4, Flash Pak, and Zombie Pak today. Really quality stuff, molle attachments everywhere, easy to install.

The Zombie Pak fits my full size 1911 .45 and 4 magazines perfect.





The Sniper Kit fits the rear over head just right.



The Assault Pak 4 is perfect for lighter gear like my air hose, syn winch line sock and gloves.

Used the mighty Jeep to haul Away another backyard make over. First my dads then helping my son... This Jeep pulls very nice and I'll just say the weight is over its spec.

unfortunately we've had another event planned out for the 9th,,
most likely not going to make this one..

But there are several areas I want to do out there with the new JKU,
There's an area I have named the trap because it sucks you into the driver side wall.. I wasn't able to do it with my other Jeep but hoping to get it with the longer wheel base..
so I will be out there in Nov sometime... I'll post it when I have something setup with some guys I Jeep with... or maybe will link up from here...

here's a pic on the spot I call the trap... this isn't me.. but a good pic... kind of tells the story.. still looking for the pics of me here..

Howdy all , just purchased a used 2006 with low miles and love it. I am a rancher out in western Lincoln and eastern Socorro counties. Went into town to purchase a Polaris ranger and came home with my jeep . Couldn't be happier! I found a used ranch hand front and rear bumper for it and ordered Rico steps and rockers from poison Spyder. Anyone know where I can get those rockers powder coated to match the bumpers?

ABQ Manufacturing off of Paseo near I25 does good powder coating work.

Congrats on the Jeep!
