When I said you would be in a mag soon, I didn't know you guys already had plans. That's awesome, can't wait to see it.

That's why I had a 10 day push to finish the Jeep.


Now the list of things I did not get done before the trip.

Replace all the random missing nuts and bolts I have misplaced over the last year.
Replace the speed sensor
Replace the data link connector
Build the spare tire mount with spare unit bearing.
Add rear additions to the cage and frame tie-ins.
Wire back up lights
Add a temp sensor to the remote trans cooler.
Trim inner bed assembly and bump stop the rear.
Build engine skid
Relocate battery to under the hood.

BTW the power steering fade issue was fixed Thursday night by replacing the used pressure hose I bought from pull a part. I ordered a new hose from PSC and bled the air. Now the steering is flawless again.

I would also like to publicly thank everyone of the Forum members that donated or sold me parts at a discount for this build. Without you guys it would have never been finished.

I am working on the notes to email to Ali @ 4wd&SUV so I am going to have to re-read my build since it started in November 2011.

It will be cool to see your rig in print and hopefully on the cover of 4 Wheel Drive and Sport Utility . Its nice that you are being recognized for your talent .

So the trip was pretty tiring but worth every minute of it. It was the real first outing for the Dumpster. 13 total hours on the hwy. I left the house at 4:45 am after working till 9 pm the night before. I arrived in Marion at the Flats offroad at 12 noon, just in time for lunch with the guys. A quick walk around with Ali the photographer and a quick under hood shot before any rain set in. Then off to Hardee's for lunch. Then back to The Flats for some interior pictures. Then we followed Corey in his FourRunner up the hill where I twisted the Dumpster up pretty good for Ali to get some under carriage pictures. The on up the hill to the area with the small rock garden where Ali was trying to get some good pictures of the rear suspension. He said it's really hard because it's just so crazy Low. Which is a good thing. Then we ran further up the hill to get some action shots and some on nice flat ground to really show how low and long the rig really is. We then spent about a hour or so trail riding for fun. I said my Thanks and headed back to Mount Juliet TN.

I never set out to build a rig for the magazines. I am glad they saw something they liked and gave me the opportunity to see my work in print. Its something I have dreamed of since I started reading Hotrod, mini truckin and offroad magazines.

I did manage to get some Gopro action. Working on the editing now.
