The 3rd bruiser in a small group of us in Florida got started recently. Project started as a Bruiser 5 with 60s and 46's. The 54s came out and one of the other Bruisers was already doing 60s and 46s...so he had to upgrade.
We just got it sitting on its axles last week, the 8 lug hubs just showed up today (not on yet), the wheels (20x14 TR) are due next week. So progress is being made. Waiting on parts has been the real hold up. The motor and tranny also got put in last week. Here are some pics.

Nice rig Flatfender! Ahhhh, Pritchet canyon. We were the group right behind you. Right after you went up and the 4 runner broke following you. Bit of a traffic jam so we turned around.
Saw you around town with some mudflaps on the back in a rack hooked to the reciever?? Just curious. Is that to be legal or??

That was my first trip to Moab and we had a blast. Upper Helldorado was my favorite!

Yes, to be legal (at least more legal). I ran into problems last year.



I had serveral cops give me a second look this year but when they saw the flaps they kept on going:)
