I must say that is looking quite nice. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Thanks,

I did get those wagon wheels off and now for sale. Also got my Colorado plate and almost blew a fuse with the idiocy of DMV here. Why are all motor vehicle depts staffed by the same stubborn jackasses no matter which state your in?

Soon will start on the armoring and better suspension. Gonna use Jeep front springs with some leaves removed and shocks.

In Colorado we have the best of the DMV idjits. I've never got a stright answer or the same lie twice. There used to be a little office in the County Courthouse that was awesome, but they closed it. Must have been too efficient.

A grilled cheese, please!

Now much closer to finished product. Still got to mount the RTT, gas water propane mounts, toneau cover, brakes, more lights and a slide in storage unit for camping gear. Then head to a warm place to try it out.

Took the trailer to White Wash dunes as a trial run and found it worked perfectly. Spent quite a lot of time just bombing around the dunes, also a run up/down the wash with a few rocks and ledges and it worked very well. Had to back down a few steep/soft sand hills with the trailer behind and that proved to be very tricky.
