Thanks!

If you guys ever get to southern MO, and feel like wheeling, give me a shout. If the rig is not being worked on, it is out being broken on the trails...lol

Wheel it, break it, fix it!

Bigger tires will be on very soon :)

After wheeling in KSRP, I needed 3 feet for the pedals on some climbs with the manual set up. So instead of growing a 3rd foot, I installed this.

Took it out for some wheeling. The new improved front end, the new 35" tires, and the new flares, all worked flawlessly.

Anybody interested in going on wheeling events, long distant trips, local gatherings, Tech talk, fab ideas, or just want to shoot the breeze, just let me know.

Few more thing to do to the rear bumper still, but will get it finished by summer. That hitch mount tag holder is removable and wired with a trailer harness plug.

The dates for this years (2012) Ford Invasion meet at SMORR are, May 4-5-6. Come join us for a great 3 day weekend of fun camping under the Ozark skies in the midst of the beautiful hills. :)
