@ Corey and the Brain, thanks guys !

I'm willing to be the winch will pick up 4 gallons and possible more but I see no sense in risking any damage, I doubt very seriously the rig will ever see stress to even match 24lbs.

Truly a bad ass build. After seeing this my next build will definitely be a crawler or scaler or some combination of the 2.

The fab work and overall project are just top notch.

Thanks for sharing this with us Bondoballz

That sure did turn out sweet ! I watched a show the other week where boondock Russians or somewhere around there drove 3-4 of those to recover rockets that fell off during launch or reentering satallites etc. They got tens of thousands for the aluminum and drove those bad boys into ice helll

@ Jay; Thanks bro, I seen that show as well, great stuff !


Ben working on my 6x6 and adding a few things, I'm ventilating the electronic compartment with a small fan and exhaust outlet. Unfortunately with it being so well sealed it gets pretty warm in there, the temps aren't crazy or anything but I figure it wouldn't hurt to get some air in there, it'll be on a switch as well so it's not on constantly.
Also putting together some Blue and Red LED's so when I'm towing something I can hit a switch for the "caution lights" Would cool if they would blink or flash but o-well.

The gimmick I'm making is with stuff I already have in the treasure drawer.

Ideally I want one of those giant light kits with the speaker and down loadable deisel sound track and air horn, that would be friggin' awesome but they start at 200+

Cool exhaust. Quite the extensive project my friend. Looked over all of it this am again and wow. I would love to to something like this, but life for me is just to busy right now. I would love to make my own 1/5 buggy from scratch...made specifically for the beach/climbing. Someday.
