    That's what we do under houses, only with a chunk of 4X4. It's a shitload of fun when the ground gives way and 10 tons of house
    falls 2 inches towards your face.

    What happened to that dude rebuilding that old Volvo. He was making some serious upgrades to it.

    Good to know you are still around, Lurker! I'll try to post some pictures later on today of the welding trailer I've been playing with here for the last few weeks. It's a hoss! 1988 Miller Air Pak 500amp welder/generator/air compressor. Setting up a mobile welding rig!

    Thanks. I still check in here once in a while. ;)

    Put Projector housings in the Tahoe with DDMTuning 55w 4500K's. Not as good as RX300 retrofit but that will come later down the road. The cutoff is good enough not to piss oncoming traffic off and the output is pretty good.

    Good luck at the Hammers this year! Your rig looked sweet last year. What did you change for this year:?

    put a 28" led light bar on my daily driver today (jeep xj).

    the light bar is an ebay special but seems to be great quality with an all aluminum housing. its supposed to be water tight sealed so time will tell if it is or not.

    100 dollar ebay special. its honestly pretty good quality...i know some people are snobs about this type of stuff but if it last me a couple years I would have got my money out of it. I only plan on this being my daily for another 2 years or so. then the price of JK's should be reasonable enough for my to purchase one.

    Yeah there are plenty of snobs that think $1000 for a Rigid light bar is a deal. Screw that nonsense.

    On Saturday I worked on my Harley. I reinstalled the exhaust after getting it repainted and I replaced the tuner and ecu south a thundermax auto tune ecu. Then the bike wouldn't start, I charged the battery and today the bike fired up after a little coaxing. Next up installing the new gas tank for some extra range.
