I have not had a chance to get this thing out wheeling yet, but i have played around a little behind our station here at work.

We did some work on it here today, took the doors off, fixed the tailgate, added turn signals, moved the one working speaker to the center of the truck near the shifter.



Not much flex out back, but there is a plan for that



I drove forward off the tree and put a new dent on the front fender


with enough hammering the doors will go back on



and here is a shot of the relocated speaker, and a shot of all the shifters

Thanks man, I put in a lot of time the other day at work messing with the rig. I mounted and wired the winch off my old rig. I had to trim the grille quite a bit to make it all fit. I snapped a few better side shots of the rig... I can't wait to get this thing out on the trails.

I got the tires and beadlocks installed yesterday. The stauns are not a very fun install but they are pretty cool
