New handle????
It was called the "fugley banana"..... name may stick... I don't have a name yet. but I'm planning to repaint it at some point. then again the previous owner had had the same plans as well

I too dislike the rectangular headlights/chrome grill..... I may try and retrofit a tj or cj grill and hood at a later time, however the cost is pretty high. I'm going to wait and see how much it bothers me after the summer is over. But considering that the tub, frame, and dash are all that's left of the "jeep", I'm bummed they couldn't have swapped out the grill for me too!

Chad, you went with the Creepy Crawlers on your jeep didn't you? How are they on the road (to and from trails)? I'm most likely ordering mine in the next 48 hours.... Just want to get some feedback from someone I actually know an trust vs internet non-sense

Internet non-sense is the best sense! In fact we should probably all be running duratracs and plasti dipping everything we own too!

I look forward to seeing where you go with this

That thing looks like a monster. You put those maxis on there and that machine will be nasty. You going to bring that beast on carnage for set them free?

I'd really like to..... Hitting 21 on the 21st... Was hoping to hit billings the following day but it doesn't sound like the rest of the group is willing to run it....

I'm on the fence about Carnage.... I have to admit, I walked it... The exit has me pretty nervous!! But more than likely I'll be joining that run

Did you have any formal photography training/education or just pick it up through trial and error?

BTW, regarding onboard air, you can't go wrong with a PowerTank. It's one of the best pieces of gear I have and I'd highly recommend it.

There are a lot of good websites for this, and there are only a few settings you really need to be concerned with. Correct priority mode for the situation and getting your white balance right is about all you need to take a good picture.

I just confirmed I will be able to get the brakes, hydro assist and new tires in by the time the event is here.... So looks like I'm in despite my better judgement!

Hell no...Awesome you've got a rig up to snuff to be on that level. I don't think I ever want to run that trail. Unless someone else lets me drive their junk. Haha


I'd recommend running patriot to give your angry steering box a real warm up before carnage and see if it has the strength to hold up...also to see if your drawers are still clean afterwards.

I'm replacing the steering box and pump as well as installing the hydro assist prior to the run..... I'm going to try and make time and find some partners in crime for penrose prior to the event but not sure it will happen....

Nice. I'll let you know if any of my buddies head down there in the next two weeks.
