These are the ones I got. Love them. Very bright and the warm up so they don't freeze over. Got a set to put in the kids rig too.

Thank you.

Other one has been sitting. Kid was back in Baltimore for a year so it was in storage. She just got back and I haven't had time to mess with it. Last time it was out it developed a trans leak I need to fix.

Getting close, working on some finishing touches before KOH and will hopefully have the skins from windshield forward painted by the end of the weekend.

Best side shots I have right now. The color is the gray patch on the pass fender, that was my test spot.


First is from before final fender trimming, front slider trimming and moving the rear axle back about 2".

2nd after the trimming and moving.

Also a teaser pic of the grill.

Got allot done on the front skins over the weekend. Just a few tiny things to finish up, put the radio in, mount the fire extinguisher, etc etc. The only real exception is the rear drive-line, which I am hoping will be done today or maybe tomorrow. It had to go back to the shop since it came back the first time 2" shorter than it was supposed to be. It will be ready to go on the trailer first thing Friday morning.

So I have been really lazy on updating this.... So far its been a pretty ruff year for the rig....

Sand Hollow was fucking amazing, but can get really shitty really fast. I had changed the rear upper links around in the adjustable upper mounts when I moved the rear axle back, and it changed it allot, feels a ton better when climbing, before it felt like it wanted to come over when climbing, not so much any more. After messing around at Sand Hollow I started to get the feel for it and got a little cocky headed up Nasty Half and got in a really bad spot going out the top. As is normal, pics don't do it justice, and if you know the spot you can visualize it. I was working on it pretty hard to drive it out, until I was talked into getting out and looking at it......









No major breakage or crashes for me, but we all felt like we were rushed and needed more time there. We are definitely planning on going back, such an amazing place.

And then there was KOH. We got in there Thursday afternoon and got settled in. Went out that evening for a run up resolution and around the back side towards turkey claw. Headed by Trap door I figured why not, climbed it in the old rig on D44's and 35" DOT tires, and was climbing harder stuff at SH, should be a cake walk. Well I got on the face of it and it felt fine, rolled into it and started up the face and it lost traction. Before I could do anything it bounced on the rear driver tire and I ended up completely on my top. Windshield frame came out fine but it stopped moving with a boulder in the windshield on the passenger side, tweaked the hell out of the radiator and smashed the hell out of the front fenders and grill. After standing it up it held all of its fluids except for less than a quart of ATF. Bumped the motor over with the ignition off to make sure she didn't have oil on the top side of the pistons and then it fired right off. Spend Friday watching the the short course section of the race from the pits, pulling the sheet metal off of it and cleaning the glass out of it. Saturday we headed out to wheel Outer Limits. Had it up over 75 going out and coming back and it handled it much better than I was expecting. Was pretty dang smooth, not having a windshield really sucked though......














After getting back I took it snow wheeling on March 3rd up at TSF. Got up high enough that we were in uncut snow and pushed all the way up the trails to the top past the crusher's. There was about 4 feet up top of good pack. The next day I took it up into Washington by Mt. Saint Hellens for some more snow wheeling. There had been allot more traffic up there and the ruts had all iced over making it a nightmare. It was determined that the Sticky MTR's do not do anywhere are good as the DOT MTR's in the snow. Even down at 2 ish PSI @RANGERROD still had a ton more traction than I did.

I did a last minute load up and run down to Cline Butte on the evening of March 9th to wheel on the 10th. I unloaded it about 8 in the morning and the other guy wasn't going to be there until about 10 so I figured I would work on the MAF tuning I had been putting off for a while. Driving up and down the road for about 15 min getting readings and I believe I spun a rod bearing in the bottom end of the motor. If not that I have a really small fucker that moved into the oil pan and hates it when I have the motor running s he starts beating on the inside of the block with a 3 pound sledge hammer. I had it on the trailer and strapped back down by 8:30 and turned it into a drinking trip instead. So far it's still sitting on the trailer in the driveway until I can get my buddies jeep out of my shop so I can yank the motor out and go from there. I have been looking around and thinking about what I want to do for it and so far I am thinking about making a 408 stroker out of it, because you always need more power.........I will have to see what the crank looks like when I can get into it.

Im glad to see you are having fun with it. I would be more unhappy with having to source and fit new skins and windshield. At least with the engine you get to put a few more ponies into it. I am guessing that it ran with no oil pressure when flipped?

The skins are not sitting well, but I have spares to use. I will be adding some more tube to the front to keep from beating it up to bad if it happens again, I just hate anything that resembles one of those stupid ass jeep stinger bars on the front of my rigs . The windshield frame came out of it just fine and the glass was already cracked, between needing to replace it from that and already thinking about chopping 2-3" out of the front windshield height, I am not too upset about the glass. Now the condition of my face after 2 days of bombing around in the snow was far from pleasant, felt and peeled like a 2nd degree sun burn .

When it went over I got it shut down immediately, but it is a high millage take out that I just tossed a cam in. Also I was flogging the absolute hell out of it in the snow, man she loves her some rev limiter . So it loosing a bearing, though unwanted, is not a surprise. I was just hoping it would give me a while longer before I had to sink some money into it.


I was able to steal the video from FB and upload it to YouTube, trust me, it aint pretty, felt like an idiot.....

Your rig is awesome! Only been in Oregon for a few years and I've never seen or heard of that place! Can't wait to see what's been going on with your adventures.

Thank you.

The plan right now is to build a 408 stroker. I just need time off of work to do it. This is my shortest week so far this month and I'll be about 75 hours by the end of the weekend. Outage time is good on the bank account, but hard on the body. I've been on 12 hour plus nights since the 2nd. The rig is still siting on the trailer because I haven't even had the time to put it in the shop.

So the engine s out and tore down. It spun half a rod bearing. The half in the cap spun and was stacked with the other one and half the rod was running without a bearing. This one was a new one for me........
