Looking good man. Can't wait to see this thing in the dirt. What is your plan for the tires? Are you going to run the Michelins or replace them with something better?

Someday I would like some ag tires 17L24. These tires will do for now.

Lights all done. Steering works good for now. Will see when I get it out of the barn how well it works. Soooooo close to having it ready for test drive..

I know I'll get crap about this winch but it was too cheap to pass for 200.00 and it was new in the box. And it does work.

No crap here with the warranty they are damn hard to beat. I've ran several over the years on trailers, cheap trail rigs, etc and they are no warn but they have always served me well. Gotten a few free ones through the warranty too.

We got here out of the barn for the first time in 11 years. My 11 year old son was smiling ear to ear, he has been the one helping me and pushing to get it done the last 3 years. We have a few things to work out and toning to do.

Needs some tractor tires on that thing. Would probably be a lot lighter than those military tires.
