...You might want to add a link at the top of your first post with your project/build thread, that's what I did...;)

...My "Elite" registry for my "Project X" only has about 4500 views while my Project thread has over 40,000 views...:dunno:

...If you click on "Pics and Mod's" list in my signature, that is where my "Elite" registry is and where I keep updating the mods list... Your Registry is also where they pick the truck of the month from...

I like what you did with the front end, it looks really good. Red looks good, same color as my X.

Scotty J - Where did you get your front end light bar, etc? Is that something you fabricated?

A buddy of mine did that. He took a WARN universal tray, added some 2" pipe and some cross steel.

Yes it does, it's a switch blade. I'm a network engineer.

That's awesome, its funny my job description states Network Administrator, but my phone contact that the office puts says Network Analyst. I mainly install switches and routers, service and maintain them. I also manage our proxies, firewall, and wireless detection devices. I work on some Cisco routers in the core, but mostly Enterasys within the distro and soon it will be all replaced with Brocade.

I'm currently working on my CCNA, I think I could pass it now, but I am kinda of **** when it comes to testing. I have to be ready for that sorta thing. Its great to know someone here is in the same field and loves to 4x4. Oh, still like what you did to the front of that ranger, looks sweet.
