Im home. Had a good trip. Thanks for making me drive!
I went and got the tires at Shawn's. Shawn's one of the greatest men I've met. Ever. Meet him in person if you can. Yet he does not seem to want to take the time to post anything but coupons (what a caring soul ^_^), so I'll bait him. Here's to Shawn and his tidy garage.
I never quite made it to any real trails, but I wanted to look into holy cross. I went to Derby hill in Cheyenne. That was quite fun. Alas Shawn was right and I need to trim my fenders, as I chewed up that one tire even more. The realization that I have crossed the line from some dork with a lifted truck into off roader is not hidden to me. I am going to go for this prospect now and am happy for it. Here is a short list of things I'm planning for the following 9 months. Note that any humerous comments are notes to myself, not attempts to amuse you. Thats what Epic Adventures are for.
-Custom Flatbed - No fenders, but still full width and full
length, retaining current rear bumper
-Rocker Protection Step - Some kind of boxed steel
-Front Winch Bumper - 2 x 8 steel with shelf in front with
- CB Setup - Big antennas, 2 of 'em
-Flood Lights - On the bars, move spots to front or
-Rear Winch - Electric 8000lb (cheap) mounted somehow
-Front winch - Hydraulic or electric, whatever. I hope
hydraulic. In the 9000 - 10000 pound area
-Dual Batteries - I have the extra tray, so it must be
meant to be!
- Better alternator - Yeah, I'll need this to power those
-Trimmed Front Fenders - Need to stuff those tires when I
remove the sway bar
-Roll Bar - Custom bent with long trailing bars
-Skid Plates - Everywhere, in fact, I want to be driving a
huge skid plate
-Heads - Vortech, need intake too ?
-Exhaust - Yeah, loud!
Flatbed plans -
So anyway, I'll have for sale definatley -
- NP208 transfer case that hooks to a 700R4
- Chrome stock rear bumper
- Welded decorative sunflowers
And these I might have for sle in the near future -
- Very good quality blue fleetside longbed except for holes
in floor of bed where roll bars and 5th wheel used to be.
- Roll bars. Black. Fit both fleet and step side.
- Front stock chrome bumper
So have at it as you will. Any thoughts or bids for items are gladly welcomed. Remember if I put OT in front of it, I can do anything! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
