Lol. Well, I tilted it too far... Trying to climb over a old junk van, I flopped it on its side. Broke a mirror and the back window. Going with lexan now. I'll post the pics and stuff tonight.

Well, this weekend i was over at my pop's place after the amazing UK game and my little brother and his friend asked me if the Sarge has ever crushed a car. I told them, "Not yet..."

You know that whole Redneck thing about "Hey Ya'll Watch This!" thing.... Well, I officially joined the club...

I began running over an old van we had out back...










Then decided to see just how high i could get on the van... And did this...







Only damage was a shit ton of powersteering fluid was lost, and i broke the side back window and the passenger mirror. Guess i need to add those to the "Need to Fix" list...

Oh well. At least i know what it feels like to flop one now. lol

your paint is fine! It was just a side window. The Polycarbonate plastic that is on the driver side is what i am going to put on the passenger side. A 4x8 sheet is only like 120 bucks in Lexington, so I'm running up there next week to get it.

How were your ra's modified to accept link mounts? Just cut off, platted with 1/2" then mounts welded on?

That would be a question for the gentleman who built it. Reclinaholic is his SN on here.

actually, none. I was Keith Stone Sober unfortunately.

My ol lady says it was just an excuse to install the polycarbonate window. lol. She might be right....

I did pick up a big ol sheet of the lexan stuff so i can install the window, so hopefully i can get that done next weekend. I gotta work on my little brother's Jaheep this weekend

UPDATE!

Well, now that Railman has talked my tail into going to LBL for New Years, I have to get my tail in gear on the Ex. The two biggest issues were these...

1. Wouldn't run for poop. I couldn't go 20 feet without it trying to die on me Figured this out to be the computer was freaked the F out because of the flop. Reset it and all is good.

2. Giant hole in the side of the rig that used to be a window.... Instead of trying to find a used side window that i would likely bust out again, i did what Dan, the pevious owner, did on the driver side.... Lexan. I picked up a HUGE sheet of 4x8 1/8" Polycarbonate Plastic from General Plastics and Rubber for just 115 bucks. I only needed a 20x40ish piece, so my step dad split the cost and took half. So i got a bendable, scratchable window for around 58 dollars. I used just M4-.70 hex bolts and fender washers to mount it. Of course i masked it and painted it to kinda look like the factory window and used some windsheild sealant to keep most of the weather out.





Now that those two things are taken care of, I am knocking out a few more little bugs the rig has.

1. covering the storage area with bedliner
2. new bulbs in the fog lights
3. new relay for the fans
4. CB from D installed in this one
5. reset the centerpoint of the steering
6. adjust the Railman ram mount
7. Put the new mirror on the passenger side


As you can see, i have a good amount of work to do in the few days i have left before New Years Eve.... Wish me luck!

well, i did manage to get some work done on SGT last night.

1. cargo area is painted (BTW, never paint when its 29 degrees....)
2. new mirror is on
3. fog light installed
4. fan relay installed
5. exhaust removed. The resonator and muffler were just on there for looks. I disconnected the hanger and they both litteraly slid off :shok:

Prepping and painting took the longest. Due to the temp, it was taking about an hour between coats, and of course prep took a good hour and a half. I think it will look good. I didn't take pics because i left the side panels off so everything could have a true 24 hrs to cure since its outside and temps are pretty cold out.

Here are some pics. As you can tell, most were of the Ex. Kristy took the pics, and she is still used to taking pics of just our rig. There are a few of greg and john though. Great wheeling with you guys. Thanks for the spotting, and John, thanks for all the help!

Mini Gauntlet





Greg decided to become a Sawmill Worker and bring the wood home with him



Rock Garden. I Tried hard to get Greg to do it, but due to the trip he had to make back home, he passed.

Glad y'all had fun, wish I could have made it.

Yea, it wasn't too bad. The Ex definitely felt at home in the rocks though

Greg does nice work, he helped me with the hoops on my ranger bed.

He's on here but I can't remember his SN here.

FINALLY got our matte clear in after it being on back-order for 3 weeks, so i finally got the hood back on. As you can see, the corner is a different shade due to the clear, but at least when i wash it, the paint will stay on.





Other than that, SGT Ex has been sitting around waiting on me to finish all the other junk. I did get all the VIAIR stuff off D-Ranged today, so it will be going into Ex very soon.

Also planning a trip to Black Mountain OHV area for Easter weekend to see how Ex handles the big boy boulders.
