-Huge thanks to Dave's Off Road Supply for hooking up Carl & The Rescue Truck with Yukon gears and lockers, a ton of stuff from Ruff Stuff, PSC steering, Beard seats & harnesses.

The goal of the project is to transform Carl's '88 RCLB W150/W250 (more on this later) into a highly capable trail truck that will ultimately serve as our wheeling contingent's (aka Fat Boy Fabrication - Brandon, Carl, Andy, and a few friends from southern MD) work horse and trail rescue truck.
