Mad's "Dark Angel"
The Creation of a DARK ANGEL
Before we get started I want to say this was built to wheel, play in mud and use as a daily driver.. It is NO MALL CRAWLER and has the Scars, dents n repair list to prove it.. and yes Even pictures to back it up!
Now, How the FJ came to be;
WHile i was deployed to Iraq With My unit in 2006-07 my wife did this to my Ford F-150........
After My Military deployment with Special Forces & back home decided to go back to Iraq on contract. SO, Just prior to going back over seas, I traded MY truck in for the wife a new 07 Dodge Nitro, leaving me with No vehicle,and no toys for the first time in 25 yrs!
SO WHile working now On contract as a Field Engineer For SF.... I managed to get my hand crushed n had to be Medivac out back to the States for Recovery.... SO what do Guys do when completely bored n have no vehicles or toys to get introuble with?? HMM??
YUP!!! Traded the wife's brand new Nitro.
FOr This ....:clap:
