    Time frame- must be finished and tested before Moab trip March 21



    First up- picked up a diesel dually …forsee more traveling this year

    Since it was rolled last year , we figured we would take the opportunity to re-design the cage. Brought it into Evolution Machining and Fabrication and in two weekends , the body was taken off and tube work done…

    Completed Phase I


    Some pics are here

    Is it me, or is your rig really tall? Can't tell how tall it is from the pics, but it looks to dwarf those 44's.

    So, are you going to put panels on this rig? Will it still remain a mud rig or from my observations, you are pretty much trail/comp vehicle.

    The rig is getting a new skin......

    Yes, we are doing fuel injection...we went with a system from AFFORDABLE FUEL INJECTION. We really like these guys. The system being prepared will be set up for the nitrous. It is also n the dyno. I'll make sure I get some video of that :D
