So I've had this thing for about a year, came with a really old RTT (which is up for grabs and needs some help) and I just haven't had time to work on it. Finally got into gear last weekend while TrAiLbUsTy1 was out of town. I still need to weld the breather which is on the bottom of the diff since who ever did the leaf over was lazy. Then I'll have to tap a new breather on top of diff. Need matching Duratracs and 16" steelies..also must chop off hitch receiver and install the Max Coupler




Before


After




Trailer bed was a rust bucket ...paint still wet in picture I went with a matte finish



Even painted the chassis




RTT I got installed...might need to upgrade due to size with our dogs...haven't tested yet so we shall see. I'll post up here if I end up selling it to upgrade





interior








Hope all is well with you guys, sorry I'm never around..seems impossible to get away from town.

Busy with life more than work unfortunately ...here comes the slow season. No idea why people need to fix their house in the middle of 200 degree weather..then as soon as it's nice they hibernate. arrgg Dude do you have any AZFJ patches left?

Dennis...am I the one those are for? I had posted I wanted two...but I was under the impression you had already sold all of your first batch.
If they were for me...maybe Jake and I could split this pair and get more on the next order?

Sorry, they were for someone else. I have a new batch on order. I can't believe how fast they went.
Soon I hope.

Sold the ayer Tepui tent..getting the CVT raineer big dog 72" x 8 feet.



Got matching rims (need to paint flat black) and treadwright guard dog 315/75/16's


A little fender chopping is necessary





They sent on Nitto side walls



This weekend I hope to chop the old trailer hitch off and install the Max COupler I just got. Going to look into extending the bed width wise and creating a new rack that with a pull of a pin hydrolics will raise up the RTT so we have full use of the Annex down below.

About to order solar, water heater, water reservoir. Then make a pull out kitchen set up and a bunch more. Need to get this done before the summit.

Toying with the idea of changing the zebra into tiger stripes with sun fusion...but before I do that. Photoshop time .
