Just read through the whole build and I love it. I can not wait for my funds to be ready for my build and will be referencing back to yours!

I picked up some if this fabric cleaner at Auto Zone, and man, the soft top came out looking brand new!

Highly recommend.

I need to try that stuff then. My top is looking like crap after all the wheeling this summer. Black mixed with brown stains everywhere.

What were the steps you took when cleaning it up?

1. Spray on area to be cleaned
2. Let sit for 30 to 45 seconds
3. Scrub with automotive brush
4. Wipe off with towel

And that is it.

Here is a shot of my Duster half way through the process:





Taking the rig out to "The Farm" this weekend. It's a private rock park run by a club with some of the largest buggies in the state. So needless to say, it is nasty! Tons of obstacles to break stuff on. Every year they hold two events and every year I see pics of multiple flops and rollovers. Let's just hope I am not posting those pics on Sunday.

We will be there Saturday morning through the late afternoon. I hope this weather dries up as much of the mud as possible!





Finished up a little project that I had pending for awhile- my cb antenna. I had it just zip tied to my rear stinger ever since I mounted the re Hi-lines, so it was time to get that junk corrected.

I took my High Country 4x4 mount and basically hacked off two thirds of it, grinded it smooth, re-drilled the mounting hole, primed it, painted it, then finally bolted it on. Pretty simple and came out really clean!

I had a few helpers on this one as well.....









Then along came the extra help......



And where thee is one, the other is surely to follow....




That is Mieko and Jomo, my two Huskies. I'm sure they miss Colorado more than my wife and I, we had them up in the Rocky Mountains about every other weekend.

UPS stopped by this morning with a driver's side Mastercraft racing 5 point harness!

I went all beef no chicken with this set of mods. 3" harness straps and I'm using 1/2" bolts.

Ready to roll..... literally:

Nice work! Quick questions for you. I have been searching desperately to a bolt up dana 44 for my tj and have had zero success.. Would you recommend going with the c clipe eliminator super 35 or keep searching. I'm getting a nice parts closet going and the only thing keeping me from regearing is what axle will i get or use. Any suggestions?? God only know how hard it was to find that front 44!!!

Have fun this weekend!

Great trip to The Farm! Definitely a buggy park, but I was able to run almost everything with some good spotting from about 50 people per obstacle .

The new Mastercraft seat and harness were night and day from the stock setup, I don't know if I could ever go back. Felt like I was strapped into a fighter jet on each obstacle.

I'll post more details later, but for now a teaser shot or two...

Ready roll!



Climbing up "Get Skinny"





Much more to come! There was no less than 300 rigs and trucks and easily twice that many people. Mostly spectators, only a few of us on the trails that actually weren't buggies.

Again, great day on the rocks!
