Looks awesome. I think it's great that you're building a Jeep with your daughter. You're a brave man, putting pics of her on the forums, though.

Great work as always.

I always liked your attention to detail, and this is no exception.

Kudos for going the father daughter project route, you two have done some really impressive work.




As a side note, where can I get a job like yours?

Thanks!! We provided the vehicles, transported the vehicles to each "camp", and provided vehicle support.
