Its IN!!!!




Needs some push and tack..........


Layin a decent bead.. Gotta be quick when weldin this 18 gauge




New Door Handle


Best Bang for your buck The price of a cheap grinder varies.. Harbor Freight is like 27 shipped. Home Depot Cheapest I found was close to 40. Tractor Supply Cheapest was KAWASAKI....wtf kawi and power tools, Not Happenin $30. So I went to LOWES!!!!! $28 for a Skil 4 1/2 grinder WITH WHEEL. I went ahead and bought the extra coverage for 5 bux so I spent more than other placess BUT It's covered with a warranty.

Ok, the reason I asked is because Shoe Creek isnt closed but it came very close to getting closed because of trout unlimited. There are native trout in the stream that the trail crosses and trout unlimited say its destroying there habitat. O well, I guess there will always be people like that.

Also would like to add that I put some Ecco's on my DD with some Michelin Harmony's Made the new footprint 8 inches wide and a wopping 12 lbs lighter than the stock tire and wheel combo!

The rims on your truck look boss, but those are Ravines. The Jeep also looks sick!
