Right now I've got a 3" BL
Kumho Road Venture MT 71 33X12.5 X15
Crager 15X10 D window/fake beadlocks
Flowmaster SUV dual 2.5 in/3' single out w/turndown
Next:
SOA have perches, just need to get 'er done
2" TT
4:56 or 4:88
Haven't decided on lockers yet. Would like to but $$$$$$$$$$$?????
Front skid plate
Still tossin' around some bumper ideas
Grill

Thanks to all here for all the ideas and writeups.:thumbsup:
And I fixed my blend door for a few minutes work, thanks to the great article.

Nice transition! You could probably pick up a light bezel/grill pretty cheap on here...

I'm old...........and just maybe I drank to much.....

.......but, I sure had fun.
Kinda got into my homemade wine a little heavy today and decided to see how well the old Mounty liked the mud around the pond........she sure is a mess....but didn't get stuck......even climbed the pond damn a couple times.
I had three off my dogs with and they seemed to enjoy as much as I did.
I kinda like the 'cammo' effect....what do you think?

Grey beard good looking mounty.
If you want I could see if there's a mounty in the JY with a grille and light bezel and I could pick that up for you. I can probably get it fairly cheap too.

Alright, just thought I'd offer. I understand what you mean about the shipping. I know a JY around had a mounty like yours, when I was last there, so if you can't find any local, just let me know and I can get the part(s).

Thanks Lynchy
BTW....I see you are from western Australia, I have read of lot's of rain that is taking out crops and this has kept our wheat prices high. Do you know anything about this? Don't really trust our news sources so it would be nice to get an eye wittness account. I grow wheat in central Kansas so what happens around the world affects me also.
Any imput would be greatly appreciated.....mate.
Thanks GB-out

No worries Grey Beard, right now were 1/2 way through the first month of summer and its pissed down every single day. Me mate works at C.B.H. (cooperative bulk handling) and he's had a fair few days off lately because the grains just trickling in. Its really been a ******* for the farmers, either rain knocks it off or stinking hot days result in bloody harvester bans, cant win. On a slightly different agricultural note, we've just had the first certified organic producer have his ticket revoked because of GM canola contamination. Even his cattle cant be sold as organic because they've grazed the contaminated land. Looks like the organic diversification bubble that helped alot of blokes out of the s*** during the hard times has burst. Have a good one mate and all the best for next season. p.s that home made wine sounds alright!!!
