I like the write up. Only coming here to disagree with this one sentence haha. Duratracs are one of the best all around tires out there.
That being said, why they put them on a truck in Texas I don't understand. Down there they are pretty useless haha.
The government paid over $750k for the shelter alone? I am far from an expert but I highly doubt that... Maybe $750 with all the military goodies that filled the inside of it haha.
Either way that seems like a good deal for $45k
Boats are fun! Glad you got to enjoy needed family time.
Excited to see this thing finally done. A guy on my old 4x4 forum in BC back in the day SAS'd one of these on 40's and his build thread was the same level of detail as yours. Can't wait to see the finished product.
When you're being dumb and playing around water and decide to go WOT through a hole no deeper than half your tire... Engine is asking for a lot of air and will suck in whatever is around/near it. Ask me how I know... haha.
Ya I miss my 8' box that I had on my Cummins, never had to think about what could or couldn't be put in it... Now that I have my ram with the crew cab I have the shortest bed possible, and I put a big Knaack box in the back, I barely even have a pick up anymore haha.
