    Well after a nine week wait I brought it home today, what a PITA but I think it will do a good job.

    Thanks, I still have a few things to do, mount mirrors and put in front 5 points, order rear 5 points, pull off to prime and paint, but at least its home. My withdrawl was so bad i bought a couple RC 4x4's and built a mini con in the back yard to crawl over.

    I am sure the neighbors would like that. All ready getting funny looks for the one on the trailer sitting in the back yard. Wish this rain would stop so I could get out there and start the rest of the disassembly.

    The rear seats are pretty useless if you are over 6', I sat back there and the top of my head is right at the bottom of the bar, it would suck to ride back there, but those seats are for the 8 and 5 year old, they have a ton of room. Getting in is easy for them too.

    James did you need the trailer on saturday? If so I will bring my truck so I can fiddle with it. How long will it take you to get there and back? I wonder if I took Tyler if I could get out of the yard sale?

    120 feet. I still have to take it back for a saturday visit just finish the frame mounting but there is so muck tube I'm sure it would be good just going to the body, but I am getting it tied in just to be on the saferr side. six points of contact to frame.

    Any pics from the rear? It looks like the rear halo doesn't have support.
