Hoping to see Richard again tomorrow if the weather allows. If not then maybe Richard will update post with some even more recent pics. Richard also now has 2x black oak light bars and 2x odyssey PC1750 deep cycle batteries I supplied him for the project. Going to be quite a truck hopefully and worth the wait. Thanks.

I don't know much about Jimny's but been a coded welder for years and fabbed all sorts of machinery and this is quality fabrication work. You can see from the joint construction and gussets that he understands the loads.

Smoggy, if the build up has half the quality of the chassis build, you are going to have quite the machine, I look forward to seeing it.
