New offroad shop!!

This is alittle sooner than I wanted to post this so I wont get into very specific details.

I am in the proccess of starting an offroad business. I have several suppliers ready for my start date. I will be a full service fab shop with retail space.

I can also help you out with all your axle needs as well! Everything from gears and lockers to knuckle turning and custom axleshafts.

As I get closer to my "open" date I will be more forthcoming with the details.

Hey, Josh. Are you up for building me a rear bumper?

Real simple and plain out of 4x3 tube...nothing fancy, but I do want to cut the bed sides.

But I will get some build threads up pretty soon.

Josh, when you get ready to release the opening date, let me know so we can add you to the "vendor's list" sticky.

I definitely would like to promote from "within"!

I foud your thread on the scheduling after this thread, so I figured that was what you were talking about.

I think I am about to get the truck back on all fours and now you are saying you are "finished" for the season? you suck!

im about this (] [) far from being in over my head between maintaining a budget buffer for any serious breaks that might happen while wheeling, repairs, gas money and parts collection/progress on the axle. That custom clutch kit really hit me hard.(i dont regret it...just set me back pretty good)

now you are understanding what took me 4 years to finish mine!

AFTER I decided to put the front axle on, I also purchased/built my sliders, put the celica seats in, and bought the super charger. All deals I found while searching for my SAS collection (well the sliders were factored into the SAS since I didn't have any when I started thinking about the SAS project)

I also had a clutch go out while collecting and i think some other maintenance things crop up that were unexpected.

I am glad you are aware of having a budget buffer, that was a smart decision, over going balls out and buying everything you could until the bank account was dry.

You can still come and ride. I'll always have a seat open.

I completely forgot about this thread.

We rode together at Harlan last year, too.

Yeah, I ws in rare form that day. Tired, away from home, just enjoying myself. But, I'm always good for a story or two.
