Baja surf expo 2012

Got back from a 15 day trip to mex, surfing, camping, wheeling, taco eating, chilling... Over 3K miles all together. Good times. I prefer to tell the story through photos rather than words, so this post is very photo heavy and text light. I’ll gladly fill in any anecdotes for anyone who’s interested. Here's a few pics...
(PM me for specifics. Just refer to the Photo #. I know some folks get a bit uptight about revealing "secret" surf locations in baja...)



Here's a link to a video i made.

ya im not sure, in fact i just checked their site yesterday to try and hook up a buddy, but i wasnt able to find LED's there. I know they pulled all their group buys off TW. maybe PM andrew from TRS and see whats up... Its a good light bar. I had to open this one up and fix a broken soldering point, but i bought it used, from someone who obviously pushes his truck pretty hard in the desert, so i wasn't too surprised to have to work on it.

Ya I did all that, I found someone else who sells them. I just wanted to buy from TRS, I have their retros. Looks like they won't be getting my business for this too.

Yup!

But FWIW, don't be like me! If you're going to drill holes in your crash bar, either drill fuckin big ones or go up thru the bottom. Getting the washers and nuts on the bolts was a huge PITA the way i did it...
