By the way, Marn, no worries if you can't bring that picker over, I'm sure we can call up a friend!

And before we do your trailer I figured I should show you some other recent projects I've done.

Pretty sweet lift kit I knocked out one night.

Some highway testing you know...

Practicing with my buzz box!

I'm pretty good with body work so no worries if we mess up a bit...

I'm pretty thorough too... I check to make sure everything clears and nothing will interfere!

Heck, just 2 nights ago I hooked up a friend with a spare tire mount in a pinch.

Also, I'm not sure if I mentioned it. My degree is in Industrial Technology but I minored in suspension design with an emphasis on spindle geometry.

So, hopefully that'll show you that you can expect some quality work done on your trailer! If you need any more references, I can continue. I've got a pretty substantial amount of pictures from previous work done. I figured it's always nice to have reference of my high end work for any future gigs so that they can be comfortable and know they can expect nothing but the best.
Seems legit

That is not a quick change.

A quick change would be no more than an hour or two by one person, prefer it be done with no tools or minor hand tools. I am going to need the project to be completed... well, right now. You better get to work!

Save that filter for me to check out. I plan on putting a pumper set up in the Jeep possibly or in the RZR for UTV class BITD next year
Air filter for the motor, not a pumper for the helmet... Just making sure you know what I'm talking about...

Wow.. you guys really do hit the sauce pretty good, I thought the location was already discussed a while back because we all live close to there.

BTW - I am not a snob, just because Andy, Greg and I all live in the same area of town, doesn't mean anyone else that wants to join isn't welcome (at least by me). The more the merrier!

Apparently those folks are not familiar with the concept of proper gearing and downshifting.

This is my first rig that is an auto and I have to admit, it is so much easier to just point and shoot. Having learned to wheel/crawl with a standard transmission was a HUGE benefit though 'cause I am comfortable with either one. I like the auto though because the wife & family feel more comfortable driving it offroad too.

No, we didn't invite you because we knew that you would say you were going and then back out at the last minute!
