Finally got the time to pick this rig up from the shop and drive it home \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ Helll yeah!!! I gave it a good workout and drove it over the Million dollar highway from Ouray to Silverton then to Durango. About four hours give or take with three big ass mountain passes(two covered with snow and ice!!! ](*,) ](*,) ) Weather sucked but the Thing kept chugging along =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> One more rig rolling right thanks to KCW Smile Smile

Well, it looks like I have rolled this rig over 5 years without any love!! :-# :-# front brakes are bad, top has tons of holes from a hail storm last winter, gas heater quit working and leaks gas, wiper motor seized, most of the electrical doesn't work and the engine is in desperate need of a tune up!!!! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ :-# :-# KCW Time!!!!!!!!!! =D> =D> =D> Flying home today with a fully rebuilt wiper motor I picked up here in LA and I'm gonna get this rig over to the shop ASAP!!!!! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
