Continuing On The Support Path

A couple months ago, we decided to take our showboat land yacht and turn it into something useful. Our Super Turd Diesel, as we so affectionately named it, had broken down in Utah and forced us to really go through the entire truck to start rebuilding it. After fixing the truck enough for it to drive again, we got rid of the farm bumper in the rear, ditched the front fiberglass fascia, and strapped some Off Road Tech bumpers in place. We added some Soltek lights and sat a T-Max winch on the front end to aid in the recovery and extraction of other unfortunate vehicles. It immediately changed the look and feel of the truck.

This month, it was time to choose a wheel-and-tire combo and add on a few goodies to help us out during extraction times.
