I'm going to go run my jeep over the scales this afternoon to see where it is now. I just weighed all of gear that we had at the ECORS race and it is heavy! In order of lightest to heaviest, items that were bolted on that could be removed for the next event (it's a gamble not having a lot of this though):

Cordless impact wrench and acc- 5lb
Hi-lift Jack- 29lbs
Soft doors- 15.5 x2= 31lbs
Rear stinger- 36lbs
Windshield- 45lbs
Tool box- 51lbs
Pitbull Rocker on aluminum Raceline beadlock- 135lbs

Total of 332lbs!

I was probably around 185lbs to 190lbs with the boots and suit on and my co-driver was probably around 210lbs with suit and boots on. I'm thinking that I need to find a horse jockey to ride shotgun!

Damn! Thats a lot of weight that could go. I'd be nervous about leaving the tools out too. I don't run the courses, so I don't even know what its like or if its worth the gamble. If the courses are pretty damn hard, then I'd say leave the tools in the Jeep. Then again, how often do you break when competing? It might be worth running one race without to see if you can get by and just pray nothing goes wrong.

Then again, what do the KOH guys do? Even better, perhaps you could severely trim down your tools that you carry on Jeep? You just have to get the Jeep into limp mode, not fully repaired. As far as spares goes, hell just carry shafts, drive shafts, and u-joints. Being minimalistic will still save weight.

Either way, that is a tough call.

You guys make me feel fat... 235lbs...

Mmmmmmm..... Artec Ind custom one off mount:









They asked me to take a few "website" shots. That was about as good as I could do. I'm traveling through Saturday, so hopefully I can get it all together by Monday night.

Thanks! I've had the stock tank mounted in the tub for over a year now, so I'm already familiar with what comes with having the tank in the cab. Now I'm just pumped to be getting all of the room back!


I haven't decided if I'm going to paint the mount a body matched white or black.

The wife will never believe it is "once and done" until it is juggy reared, rocking Spider 9's, rolling on 39" stickies, with a 300+hp V8 at the Lakebed in Johnson Valley.

I told her I'm totally ok with that, but she needs to go get a third job first.

I hear the feed business is on the up tick. Can't wait to see what your next bonus puts on the TJ. All I know is that my stocks in chrome paint and TJ car wax are making me rich.

Well, the rig passed NC inspection! Beadlocks, stock tank mounted in the tub, no doors or top, and 4 point harnesses = no issues at the inspection station.

I decided to get it inspected before the RCI tank went in, just in case it caused any glitches. Speaking of which, the tank goes in tomorrow . I also picked up some gear oil and will try to take a look at my front ARB as well. It wasn't locking up last weekend at The Flats- here's hoping it is just the copper tube.

I've been driving the jeep everywhere to burn up the extra fuel and should have taken some pictures, it was literally a mall crawler this weekend cruising the Banana Republic .
