I made my first one back in the early 90's. I came across a guy who had a well used Toyota Jeep, and he built it in 1984 as I recall. They do work well. We did a lot of swaps with that stuff. I am still doing it.
I'll get a weight tomorrow. I was getting ready to head to the scale saturday morning and noticed a small brake fluid leak at the passenger rear caliper. Spent the morning fixing that and missed my window to make it to the scale bc they closed at 2:30. Since I missed the scale, I spent the rest of the afternoon wiring up rock lights. Got them from Lux Lighting. They are magnet mount and simple to install, very happy with their product.

Got the weight, weighed in at 4340 lbs. Heavier than I thought, but nothing to remove to lighten it. Could re-do the skids out of aluminum but that ain't happening anytime soon.

Whipped up a bikini top today. Teepee canvas from Big Duck Canvas, poly webbing, and some backpack buckles. Taught myself how to sew for this project. Really happy with the final product.

Top came up well. Was the first sewing job I had done outside of school too!

I had trouble of it flapping at highway speeds though as didn't have the amount of tensioners that you have. This was in 1989 so had no samples to look at online.

Thanks, I actually enjoyed sewing the top. I added the center straps bc I was afraid of ballooning. Will add more if it flaps too much.

Very nice! It is a great feeling to get it on the road. Your weight is pretty close to the same as my rig.

Successful first trip. Not many pics. No breakage. Need to raise my fuel vent hose and put some sort of sleeve on my tailgate chains.





Off the trailer, back at the house.



Little vid. I made it about 30 seconds after they stopped filming.

If only you had boggers you would have walked right up those ledges.

Might need to start looking for some half worn boggers, I hear they grow on trees out in Tallapoosa.

That Turkey followed me for about 30 mins, he crawled so well, it made the jeep look bad. Lol

In Tallapoosa the possum rides a worn out bogger at midnight on NYE.

Waco is close enough...

In an effort to come up with a onboard trash can, I found an old military butt pack on the shelf in my garage. It somehow accomplished everything I was shooting for in a trash containment system. I wanted it to hang off the tailgate somehow...check, and I also wanted to be able to use Kroger bags as liners....check. still working on final mounting but I'm happy with how the garbage management apparatus is turning out.
