Nice air setup. Good enginuity.

I want to add an air system with tanks to my truck someday. Just another thing on the list.
I can hardly wait until I get out to the desert again. Looking at your truck and checking your vids ... looking good. If I wasn't going to Fabulous Fords this weekend I would be down in the desert

Nice, maybe you can join us on the next meet and greet. I'm thinking of doing a weekend @ Glamis.

Sounds like a plan. So far my last two trips I went for a day run. I ended up getting to the desert late so they both turned into night runs.
I haven't been to Glamis for years. I used to bring my Kawaha -750 triple to Olds and run it. ( Thats a Kawasaki 750 two stroke on Methanol in a custom frame w/ Banshee Plastic)

I had also picked up 4 new spring leaf U bolt from Deavers the other day and since Wicked Creations were working on the suspension I had them install it instead.

ya, thats a pretty nasty weld. I would be grinding that down, get it done right and putt gussets on the sides. a winch is on of those things you just dont want getting ripped off of your truck when you really need it

Also by the looks of the weld.I can guarantee you that there are some air pockets their underneath the messes up beads.All welders no that air pockets under stress can get bigger and at some point crack.Since he off roads his truck allot it seems,the weld will crack.

Ps,never said this before,but bad *** truck terror

Looks good Leo. The netting is pretty cool.

What's with the new tires? I just talked to a guy yesterday about those Hankook and he said they are the worst tire he has ever used.......

I'm thinking some Nitto Terra Grapplers will do me fine.
