Mechanos You'd probably be better off letting this thread rest in the archives and starting a new thread with "2006" in the title to avoid confusion.

R290 Sven, Craig and Craig are working on getting all the pic's we took onto one CD. Once ready we will PM you and send a copy. As for your sliders, I remember on day 1 going in and their first big hit, you had that look of (I hope that missed my door ) as you could see the rock through the passenger window. I yell out, you scratched your sliders to easy the tension of the situation. I think the sliders look better now, cold forged and all .

x100.... not only did he open up shop on Sunday, but his entire family treated me like one of their own. Jeff & Norma offered to let me stay there Sunday night, but I didn't not want to subject them to the quirky needs of my dog, so I declined and just stayed at a motel. Norma fed me awesome sandwiches on homemade pita bread for lunch and grilled incredible trout and steak dinners. I was truely overwhelmed by their hospitality. Like Jeff said, not only did we patch it up... we improved it as well.

All Rock Tractor is saying is... Take 4 or 5 trips.

Great pics Sven!!! Welcome to the dark side!!
You have to have a red star next to your name in order to attach pics on this board. You can upload them somewhere else and link to them, but in this case, Thebert doesn't allow outside linking to his site.

Hey Johnson, that is a way tow vehicle you got there. At least it's easy to load and it's a diesel.

Welcome! We were all worried when we found out Frank was leaving, but I hear great things about you guys already. I'm really looking forward to good ol Robbs hospitality more than ever when you open up next year.

2x4 rectangular tube IS welded seam. Like I said, it's not the fact that they are welded seam, it's the fact that they are only 0.120 wall. Make your 2x4 sliders out of 11 gauge rect. and see how well they hold up. If I'd made mine out of 0.188 or 0.250 wall, it would be another story altogether.

Where the fawk were you to "show us how it should be done"? Let me guess.... you were waxing the clear coat on your DOM sliders.

Thanks for comps Josh. Yeah, I like the look of it without the top on it way better myself. It's just for this trip with all the highway miles and unknown weather on the way, the top is nice to store shit in the Scout during the trip without worrying if it'll get wet if I run through any rain. I have a cut down hard top back home that I plan to run most of the time that is basically just a steel bikini top. The springs have already been replaced, radiator fixed and reinstalled, spare driveline made and installed, rear shocks remounted to the axle tube, tranny crossmember welded up and my windsheild put into a "new" windsheild frame. Just a few odds and ends to finish up tomorrow and v1.1 will be ready to roll.

Oh, I'm not complaining..... I just posted that up to show what the 'con can/will do to your shit. You use your rock sliders so much, I'm not even sure your could wheel through it without 'em.

Docfranco It looks like you guys had/ are having a blast. I am sorry to miss this trip. Great pics too. It helps us losers at home.....
