looks awesome Joe....only the truck looks kinda bare without all the badging...
 






I have seen that truck. You must work at the tire store on Woodmen by the Kingsoopers and the 7-11. Too bad you don't have an explorer, we could go wheeling...
 






yup thats me im an Alignment/brake tech at Firsetone.
 






Too bad you don't have an explorer, we could go wheeling...

Damn Makerist!!:D Would you really not wheel with someone who doesn't have an X?
 






I am not a makerist. Trouble is I don't wheel with any explorers! I wheel with Mostly XJs and some scouts and a Ranger. Besides, If my truck was as nice as his, I wouldn't want to wheel with me! Hey Joe, will you hook me up on a tire mount? I have some new rims that need to be swapped in...

Also My bros XJ has 4.5" on it and needs an offset ball joint- since you are an alignment guy can you do that? What does it run?

Thanks!!!

PS. Love the bumper. Stole some ideas from it on the last one I built.
 






well ive been busy lately and I have been on the site that much. Ive been playin with my new Dirt Bike and building a deck. I was messin with my truck today and took a pic of my stock Throtle Body that I ported and polished. Sorry Kirby cant help ya on the hook up for the tires. They are really **** about the hooking people up at that place. I cant even bring in any car that isnt mine and work on it unless I pay. KInda lame I think.

Thanks anyways. Maybe we should go ridding instead. Are you a trail ridder, motocrosser or what?
 






trail ridding is what I have been doin. I just got a 79 XR500 that I have been working on and playing with lateley. been goin up around woodland park/ mount herman area just playin around.
 






Nice! Thats the best place around. I was up there last weekend after dark. We came down AFA property and dropped onto Baptist road. We ended up ditching the cops, but it was fun none the less. The worst part is we got back around 10:30 and some punks busted my buddies window out. Don't park that pretty dodge at the foot of Herman past dark. I have been ridding my Dads 2003 DR400Z or my bros XR400 since I sold my YZ250 due to the fact that my wife is a higher priority. My Dad is going to ride 717 on Friday, but I am not. Shoot me your Digits and we'll go sometime.
 






Just wanted to show off some new pics. This one is my new bumper my friend and I finally finished.
