Here is a quick taste of the air setup. I'll post some more in depth photos is anyone cares about them enough.
P.S. - Sorry for crappy cell phone pics.

It works pretty well, I can't complain. The only thing I paid for was the regulator and air lines/fittings. I have about $180 total into the setup. One qualm that I have about the setup, is that is the tank gets hot (all day in the sun) and then cools off at night, it drops air pressure. It isn't too big of a deal, I just make sure I fill it at the firehouse before I go wheeling.

Well now I posted the air tank setup, now it's time to post pictures of my newest project.

It started as a $530 Tractor Supply trailer, that I got on sale for $400. I got a 5 1/4 inch drop hitch, and it looked like it did nothing. The trailer had a pretty nasty tilt. I had the trailer about a week when I decided to do a spring over conversion.

This helped a lot, with the stance and should be perfect for when I put on the new wheels and tires.


Did I mention that the trailer has the same bolt pattern as the Jeep?! 35's are going on the mini-wagon soon. IT is going from trailer to Trail-er.

This weekend I made a hand throttle for my Jeep. Now when I'm bouncing around off-road my foot won't be going crazy on the skinny pedal. Came out pretty well, and works amazing!

I also have some pics from a recent charity car show. I got a bit overshadowed by a couple of my friends rigs.

I could definitely out-wheel them, but they are amazing rigs in person. The black one more than anything.
