Good looking truck man. I like the look now with the grille painted and the red logo. Who's truck is in the middle of the pictures with all 3 trucks with the snorkel? I'd like to see more of that rack he's got in the bed.

Note to self, Bush bars are considered damage multipliers



Just at the point in time where I thought I had my truck to a point where I liked everything, now it seems that I need to start re-thinking things and rebuilding.

Update with pics of the new bumper





Got it all set up and good to go, one recommendation DO NOT USE Calgary Powder Coating, they will cause you nothing but aggravation.

Also another update....... This one not so good.

I was headed out with a group to Whipsaw in B.C. and ended up Hydro-Locking the motor, so now my truck looks great but is a paper weight. She is sitting in Penticton right now, awaiting the trailer ride home to Calgary.

Looks like I will be swapping in a used Toyota 4.0L in the near future.

Love the new bumper man it looks really good. Damn now I need to save more money and get me one of those too lol. First the lift, wheels, tires, guards and sliders and then maybe a new bumper.

Sorry to hear about the engine. Hope you get it up and running soon.

Must be a union job!


Starting her up with the new engine!

Yes, the interior is stripped, thought it would be a good time to clean everything.

And here are a few pics prior to the Hydro-lock issue

Thanks, yeah she is running great now, been out wheeling twice now, and actually got to have a TON of fun in Crowsnest pass working with Search and Rescue on Exercise Dark Squeeze, we were providing 4x4 transport into a remote location for a training exercise in High Alpine and cave rescue so got to show off my rebuilt truck to a lot of people who were very appreciative of the ride!

Working on pics and video, but need video editing software to cut down the GoPro videos

That's a badass truck man. Shitty deal on the hydrolock, but where's the story on that? Creek crossing?

Thanks, so the story with the hydrolock is I was the last guy through a fairly deep puddle and I guess my line was a little bit off or I hit a ledge in the puddle, but the bow wave crested and ended up dead in the water.

Not something I ever want to repeat!

Well a little maintenance here and there...

Had to replace the fan clutch as it went, thankfully I had a spare.

A few more goodies on order too
- Safari Snorkel
- ARB Air Compressor
- TRS Retro-fit lights

Still need to get in and get the leveling kit and the OME Shim's in, but other then that truck has been running great!
