    Looking good..

    Just put a CB in, having a bitch of a time getting it tuned... Running a Firestik on a spring in the back of the bed. You gonna tune yours?

    Think I'm gonna lock the front, new OME leafs and new coils before I go to Dutch for Feb. 1st. Gotta do something to pay for my addiction ha.

    Should be back in Kodiak for "B" Season in March!

    Hahahah I sold my Firestick and spring I'm gana try out a whip/ mag mount on my roof. Actually thinking about upgrading to a better cb maybe a Uniden 880 or a cobra 75. I'm stil waiting on my OMDs to get here...... And I'm going to get 14 in 650# king coils for my icons cause the OMDs are going to give another inch of lift on top of what I right now. so I'll have a crazy amount of preload so I'm going to compensate with new longer springs.

    You are really getting going with the mods I'm so freaking jelly!!! Wat are you doing about OBA ?

    And damn I'm going to be in Elizabeth city, nc at my advanced airframe repair skool in march! Will you be in kodiak at anytime in apr?

    Haha I know man, just heard from the boat - so I know I'll be fishing in February.. so now's the time for all the mods!

    The CB is kind of pissing me off, at least the antennas are cheap enough - I think the Firestik I have was $15.

    I can get OMEs for $350 a set, and pick them up in Seattle so no shipping costs and taxes. Pretty good deal.

    Not too sure what I'm going to do for OBA. I've been looking into the Puma 12V compressors, they seem to be much better than the ARBs - and cheaper too.

    Might be in Kodiak in April - think we're heading to shipyard in Oregon at the end of March, though.

    Did the 400w anytime mod today and added a double AC outlet behind my center console.

    Mock up. Just traced it out, drilled a bunch of holes then cut and trimmed it with a box cutter. Then sanded it to clean it up and sealed the back it's some silicone.

    I used to have billies with eibachs set at.85 with the top plate spacer. Now I have 2.5 ext travel icons and 2.0 vs rear resi icons out back. And both tires I have run have been 285/70/17. I do rub a bit and a cab mount chop is in the works.
