The wife is a competition level trap shooter. She keeps a trophy on her desk at the courthouse she works in. Oddly no one has said a word.

Not scared of her though. If I just stand still. She'll miss. Add into that I don't have the desire to chase other women and if I did. I'm too lazy to do it and too stupid to lie and keep my story straight.

Well. Once I relocated the winch controller. I needed to relocate the remote receiver plug. Here is where I put it.

Nice work! Have you considered an in-the-cab switch to control the winch? I put one in and it's pretty handy. Still have the external just in case too.

I had him put on a new tailpipe that runs out to the rear but has the proper bends to get around the shock and tank skid. Thought he'd be able to just heat and bend but he suggested the new pipe. Came out pretty nice.

I have already done that. I did that about a year ago. I really like the internal switch.

Yeah... Love the little details and the internal makes it so quick and easy to run it.

in cab has got to be sweet. Nice work Serg. I have talked to stan about a remote control for mine.
That way i can spool out or pull in from 100 feet away. He has a good price on it.

I won't go wireless remote till I get a Warn. I like the idea but not with my XRC. If I haven't gotten this one for free I would have a Warn. So far this winch had proved to be good. Hand full of fallen trees and a few cars later. It has worked fine.

There should be an app for your phone that has a universal winch remote!

So I received this air gauge for free when I purchased my ARB Twin air compressor. This thing turned out to be a piece of crap. So I replaced all the O-rings and worked on the little nail that is supposed to cling on the the valve stem.

If you look close you can see the grind marks on the nail itself. I had to take it out to do the work.

Here is what I used to do the grinding. The bit second from the left. Just popped it in my drill and slowly took off a little at a time. After putting it back together. Now it works the way it was intended.

Yeah my power tank in gage reads 3 pounds higher than my ARB out gage. I drop to 12 for off roading and when I go to fill up it shows I am at 9. Go figure which is right.

Sweet. I use to port heads. When I retired all I kept were my carbides and grinder. Too many uses for it to sell it.

My next time out is the Wounded Warrior run. I am gonna do John Bull again. You could do it with some spotting. You could make that a club run supporting the WW.

Soooo I am thinking about buying a soft top for my jeep. Who has bought one and you really like it. I am thinking something I can pull off easy or remove the sides and keep the top. Just looked at the Spider shade one. 159 is not bad.

You will like a soft top Bob. Being able to convert it to a top only before starting a trail is nice. I'm not sure ill ever use the hard top again on my 08.
