Yeah I throw some 2x6s or 1/2" ply down first on soft stuff. A stiff big rig mud flap works too.

Yeah some blocks would probably help..... Snow swallows everything tho.

Truck has been parked last two weekends, went backpacking, and had to finish my shed.

Shed. Its dried in. Good enough to hold stuff.



Shed was so I could get a garage bay back.... I'm going to be busy for awhile.....

For some reason when I saw the first pic I thought it was like a old ford esquire wagon or something then everything around it seemed to be an odd scale lol.

So what are the plans on that thing? Stockish 2wd family hauler...4wd conversion restomod? spill the beans lol

2wd, just family cruiser. It's on air and lays out really nice but needs literally everything done. But it's almost rust free.

Lots of leg powered excursions lately, so we haven't used the truck in forever, but with thunderstorms predicted all weekend that sounds like a perfect reason to take the truck.

Spent Friday night up in the mountains. It rained so hard it sounded like golf balls being poured on the roof! Yep, glad I took the truck.



It cleared up in the AM and we did a quick hike. Then headed South Ish.

Had a lazy afternoon, climbed a few easy routes and just hung out. Made some skottle pizza's and watched thunderstorms in the distance. Its finally getting cold enough to break out the propane fire pit too.




Also saw one of these! Glad it was a ways away!

Yeah.... that is part of what drew me to this one, so little rust. Already have it all cut out and welded it back in.

Mechanical is easier when you're the one who took it apart!
