Did a little more work on the bumper Saturday. Almost finished with it. Got a little more grinding and welding to do and wire up the lights. Also took the roof rack off.

Well here are some pics and vids from the Uwharrie ride july 4th weekend.

My first attempt at on the hard line at kodak rock didnt turn out to well. Got on top of it and it started running out of gas. Acted like it had a carb on it. lol Was only getting air to the fuel rail so I dont know what the deal was. It was fine all day the next day though.

Havent been on much lately. Havent done a whole lot to the sploder. Just driving it everyday, and wheeling it every chance I get. Moved and got a new job making decent money so more mods will be coming soon.

Here is a video if you hold your head sideways. lol
http://www.facebook.com/video/video....23153871073103

Only new mods. Beadlocks and 37's. No good pics yet.

What kind of HID's did you get? I'm about to put them in my Hellas, it didn't look like you did much modification

How is the beam pattern?

Just got finished putting in a new cb. Had to slightly modify the dash a little bit. lol

Stuff that I ripped out of the dash.



It fits in the hole now.





New antenna mount and coax is supposed to be here today so I can get the antenna back on and be back in business.
