Primary Occupation: Software Developer(Oracle DBA/Developer, ASP.NET)

I live up in Shingle Springs on some acreage with a nice big shop for building projects like the following.

37" BFG KM2

9.5K shittybuilt winch

Some generic bumpers that I bought off of extreme terrain

Custom rough rack

My long term project

Thanks for the warm welcome, boy you guys are johnny on the spot on this forum.

 

Mike G,

That sounds like a good idea, might as well do a BBQ at the same time (knock out one of the pre-requisites for membership)

Here is a pic of the wife's jeep (Installed the metal cloak hardline fender flares on it this afternoon):20170827_161900.jpgImage Enlarger
