I almost had trouble discerning what you were saying in between the swearing. At least it went together easy enough, now just to get it to work right again right?

You don't need no GPS. You got Jason and all his friends to lead the way anyways.

Plus GPS units with offroad friendly software is expensive and requires some knowledge and time in front of a computer prior to a trip. Save the money for root beer and Nillas.

lowrance FTW. they are pretty easy to use. as long as you know how to put data on a flash card your good to go. im sure one of the companies/dealers would be willing to cut deal or something and it would deff help in some sittuations.

The GPS is the one that Jason used in the Dodge for road trips. We were going to mount it in the dash of the Chevy but the Higher Ups said it need not be done. We will still use the unit in the dodge and the trusty hand held on the trail if and when it's needed.

Higher Ups = Willyswanter's Mom (the Boss)!

The hand held (Cobra GPS 1000) was the one I purchased for my real estate business with Jason helping me pick it out and then suddenly I couldn't find it - found it in the glove box of the Truggy . Now I know why he was so helpful in picking out the correct unit and why he recommended a handheld unit .

The belt looked great. And the one that was in the tool box is the same length so we have a spare.

SON OF A BITCH!!! All that damn work and you can't even see the stupid window.




Well you can kinda see it in this picture.




And it really wasn't all that bad. It's flexible enough to make it easy to work with and it was covered on both sides so I wasn't too worried about scratching it. I cut it with a saber saw on low speed. Worked out just fine. I just need to add a strip of metal to the bottom portion to finish it off a little more.

Oh and Ken couldn't handle all the abuse you guys gave about the doors not looking good enough so he took the doors off and is going to repaint them.

Also, we found a pre-manufactured tool box by Delta that will fit between the cab and the fuel cell. It is 36" wide, 14" front to back and 12" tall. What is nice it will give us a place to set our ice chest for wheeling in style! We will not have it for this weekends test session but hopefully if ordered tomorrow, it will be here in time to be installed before Moab.

Well you can do to it what you wanted to do to the doors. Take a rock or hammer to it. You'll be able to see it afterwards.

Looks good.

This is very cool you guys. It is nice to see so many people on this board come together for a good cause. I'm sure that Jason would be moved to tears if he was watching how this has turned out. Keep up the fantastic work.

You didn't know about that trick? I do that to my dad all the time.

TOOL BOX UPDATE:

I went to Tractor Supply Company last night and got information on all the tool boxes they have available and spent last night determining that only one box works (out of probably 50+). Today Esteban went to TSC and they told him a minimum of 3 weeks which doesn't work for Moab . So, Esteban went on line ad found one in stock in on the East Coast at BuyAutoTruckAccessories.com and they will ship tomorrow and we should have it by the end of next week . The final price including shippng was the same as buying it here locally and waiting 3 weeks . Great job Este and thank you again.

Truggy will be ready for wheeling in Moab 16th through 19th of September but Jason's friends that said they would be there are now backing out quickly. Oh well, seems we have another fuel crisis of a sort on our hands. Many times Jason would tell me about a trip that was planned and everyone that was going, then just before he left I would ask how many guys are going and he would say; just Kyle and I or just Geoff and I or sometimes it was a big turnout; Kyle, Geoff, Dozer and I. He would always continue by saying, “Oh well, we’ll still have fun!” As long as Jason was wheeling, he was having fun and doing what he wanted.
