    I really should have gone first over that ice. I'm sure it was fun breaking through, but my truck is a lot heavier and would have probably been happier about it. Anyway, both of our trucks are a lot better equipped to go up next time. We need to make it happen! Oh and do you have shop space where I could paint my skids?

    No garage space at your house to do it? You're welcome to use my garage or the shop space to do it.

    Our garage is full of truck parts, motorcycles, stuff waiting to be hauled up to the cabin we bought, basically shit that isn't worth moving out onto the driveway for the hour or two that would be spent painting. Selfish I know, but I want to get these painted cuz right now they are part of the "shit" that is cloggin up my garage.

    what did that cb setup run you? Who is putting it in and tuning it? Is it both a handheld and vehicle compatible?

    $200 its a little more spendy but being portable (albeit short range) will come in handy with spotting others. jace recommended a place to check them out in denver and said bob was using it and was happy.

    i'm sure you could find it cheaper online but oh well. the guy i talked to was pretty helpful so ill support that.

    i'm going to put it in myself (no power wires as it plugs into the cigarette lighter). hopefully someone local has a SWR meter to tune it. should be pretty straight forward. also has 2 battery packs for portability. one is rechargeable too.

    alright, this build is in need of an update

    got to take out the new air compressor and go wheeling a couple weeks ago. first impressions of it is fantastic! 20-37psi with a 285 took a little over a minute

    aaaaannnnd.....pretty pictures:D

    picked up some 6" 55W HID's from a local guy. bright enough to signal aliens!

    started building the front skid today. work kinda screwed me so i didn't get much progress but i did get it cut out and marked and double checked measurements. slow going......but it's going.
