    I agree, skip the paint for the very last touch, while working on it, hooning it and such you want have to worry.

    Btw, wagons do rock and lookout for the Wagon Mafia.
    The faded paint bugs me. Can't see in the pic but the hood & roof have very little clear left, doesn't look good.

    Class of 2017 for the rigs we built here at UJOR galactic HQ. Love the variety, love our customers, love all of these E series rigs!







    Wishing everyone a great 2018, I have a lot of plans!

    I've thought about it, no plans as of now but we'll see.

    Tear down! Customer asked that I don't post pics until he gets his eyes on it in person so this is all anyone will see until she's done!

    I'm so grateful for comment about speed. Without it, after 5k miles on one of Chris' rigs, I'd never have known 85 was too fast.

    As for bambi impacts, I have TWO dinosaurs, one for each of you.Beast with boats.jpg

    Hitting an animal at speed is no fun, but I'll take my integral welded bull bar over a passenger car any day. For out west I think I'm gonna rig some cables from the bull bar to the roof rack, but that's more for moose. It's still a work in progress, but my grill should make sure that when bambi gets to the 7.3, he's stew meat.

    Chris' rigs are absurdly poised. They even do well on twisty roads, which are everywhere around here. Just got back from FL where we found ourselves hammering down lots of rough dirt roads at 50-60. With current state of interior build, it hardly even rattles. Did find ourselves over 80 a few times last night before hitting the grade back into town. Love the Beast.

    Speaking of beasts I see 27 beasties plus the Ambo Beast above, and we are on page 666. Chris you're middle name isn't Damien is it????


    All kidding aside, I can't be the only one who looks at this thread daily to see what you're working on. One of these days I am going to sell my Chevy and get my own Beast built by you guys. Keep up the good work.
