Gosh this thing is so sick! I love rock crawling jeeps, but its cool to see someone going more of a fast pre-runner way with a jeep.

Thanks! And sorry for not updating! My personal life has had some serious changes, as well as work being busy, yet, money not coming in! The truck is done, just got to put the seats in, trailer is prepped and ready to go. But actually seriously considering selling it, I go through phases. I have a whole lot of my life into it at this point, as well as tons of cash, but just not seeing me having time, energy, support to actually go out and race it! I would really like to see somebody utilize it as opposed to it sitting sadly waiting to be abused! I will keep you all posted, and I am going to put the seats in and paint it, and at least take it for one long drive before I do sell it, if I go that route! Thanks for all the kind words and supportive comments!!!! To be continued......

lots of small details that really waste time, like securing wires, lines, switches etc etc, getting caught up in the small crappola but it has to get done.

Cheers and hope everybody has a great weekend!
Small details?!?! I love small details!!!!

I would love some pictures / description of how you are routing the wires for the intercom system. I have a basic guess of how you probably did it, but I'd like to see your take on how it's done.

Rear facing amber is required on all dez race cars so the guy behind you can see you through your dust in the middle of the night. Rear facing blue is for slower classes so that way Robbie Gordon knows you're only going 60 and not to nerf you into next week as he goes by at 120.

The intercomm/radio came pre-wired/plug and play from Mobile Race Radio.

And the amber is required(on all race vehicles) to be on at ALL times the vehicle is running and/or on course, and must be wired into the ignition with absolutely no switches inline or any way to have it off when the vehicle is running. And blue is for us slower dudes as was said.
