    Sick Lance...just plain Sick. Mad kudos for having the berries to pull this off. Wonder what the nay-sayers are doing this SEMA week?

    thanks guys...
    it has been crazy work and SMB deserves so much of the credit.

    We are have a few applications to sort through for Baja but there is still time if you know of anyone or just want to spread the word.

    The rig is over the top amazing, I was prepared to be personally unhappy but live with it since this is what DE needs...but I love it!

    More pics soon when I get a better connection and a moment to breathe

    Oh and for any of you thinking about a SMB, well the diesel is going away so you only have a few weeks left to order one.

    Looks good Lance! What does the voyager top say above the big SPORTSMOBILE logo? I can't make it out.

    Hey Lance, somehow I never got notified about updates to this thread. Mid January I'll be headed from TX to Quartzsite AZ and would be happy to meet up with you somewhere. Email me rcm at fuzzzwad dot org and we'll share horror stories.

    Lance, my wife and I and three kids met you on the last day of SEMA last month and drooled over your SMB setup. Great to see you here, man! We just got a 4x4 van which will become our main Baja vehicle. I can't remember if you guys ever head south of the border or not, but maybe we could team up with you at some point and help out. If you haven't been and want to, I will certainly show you the ropes if you're interested.

    Let's do it, Lance. We actually talked about you on the way from SEMA because my wife is so good with kids, especially those who need a little more attention (and that's before we got the van.) From late February on, our schedule will be wide open.
