You guys don't waste any time!

I have some photos I need to get digitized (one is a creek crossing in my brand new truck!) and I need to take some more. One of these days, I will actually buy a digital camera....

Thanks, Brian.

It took some time for me to get up the courage to cut the bumper. I had it all taped off and marked - then I sat there for a while. One wrong cut, and I was buying a new bumper! Fortunately, the holes worked out just fine. Now, to find another set of lights for my other truck....

Actually, I was at a smallbore silhouette match.

See, down here in the South, all us rednecks cling to our God and guns. And we shoot 'em on a regular basis!

LOL.

And for what it's worth, I can't shoot a shotgun very well. I have spent way too many years shootin' at non-moving targets!

that's a great looking rig you got there.

Ever take that thing offroad?

There seems to be a lot of Ga members on here, we should get a meet and greet going sometime.

Thanks. It has gone off-road - nothing too serious. I did cross a creek in it! I leave the serious stuff to my '93 (I don't want to scratch the paint on this one! LOL)

I was thinking about a meet-and-greet in Jan or Feb for all us N Ga folks (and SC and TN.)

Center Console

I just finished this - it holds the CB, gauges, air bag switch, and up to 7 switches (for lights, etc.)

Build thread

Not sure if I like the black finish - seems like too much black. I need to repaint the front panel anyway (imperfect finish, due to cold weather) this spring, so I might change the color. I am considering a light gray, to match the bezel above.
