No code number. It's Brownell's Allumahyde II, Coyote Tan. Just in case you don't know what Brownell's is, it's an online firearms store(www.brownells.com). I copied their color so that I could do all my own touching up with their spray cans. This way I can also paint some new add-ons like Donaldson pre cleaner. Their spray paints are hardcore for painting firearms and can take some serious abuse.

Is the fastback a fab or a kit? Did you have to change the tail lights from 24v to 12v?

I am not partial to the H3...that thing is the H3.5...I am partial. Wounded Warrior Project is a great program!

The slantback is a one off fab. The tailights are made by Grote and they come in both 24v & 12v. Thanks

Is that a center brake light at the roof line? Did you hook up the black out marker on the Grote tail lights?

Yes it is Sabre. Black out lights is still a pending project since it requires figuring out how to disable DRL. It will also include IR driving lights and strobes.

I have a source for IR assemblies...I have one for my project truck and hope to figure out switching out the 24v lamp for a 12v lamp.

I plan to get some custom made IR led lights. That way I can tuck them between the grill and bumper.

Hittin the hills near Castaic to test the H3. Wanted to hit some more serious trails but they were all closed. Both H3s did well. The 3T was a bit stiff in the rear since it had the factory leafs. I discovered I hadn't hooked up my e-brake. Also one of my small pre-cats is also crushed and rattling around. Plan to remove it since it has no sensors and is so exposed. All in all it was a good day even if I didn't get to do any more extreme wheeling. Next time.

Times up!. In the end, after al these years of living in Cali, the only 4x4 I got to do with my H3 was some snowy trail No Rubicon or any of the other great trails. This is partly due to my crazy schedule, and not coinciding with any of the club outings. It's also partly due to the build not getting done on time. Instead of returning from overseas and going out and testing the rig, I would have to do everything that didn't get done while I was away. Very frustrating. I'm sure I'll find great places in North Carolina, and great people to hang out with. This is the beginning of a new phase in my life.

Sad to see you guys leaving, happy for you that you are leaving this political quagmire.

Maybe we'll get a chance to wheel together sometime. You do have to bring it to Moab at least once!

Actually, I already lived in Connecticut for 5 years before moving to Cali, so I already know both coasts.

I took him on a Snow Run on Fordyce

Thanks. It's actually a Warn HMMWV winch mount that was adapted and the OEM fog light mounts added. The push bar is the original that came on the H3 from the factory.
