I had to have Cronk email me to even realize I had won. Thanks for the roses everybody. My truck is set up to drive anywhere you want. Then wheel the heck out of it and drive home.

I have only had one trail breakdown. That was in June at Beasley Knob. Paintchip would not let me give up and winch out of the spot I was in. I finally just pinned the throttle and it came on up but broke the left side tie rod. Not a big deal as I had parts and all the tools. Since then I put the HD tie rods on.

The coolest thing I have done to the truck is the AW auto trans with the manual transfer case to allow the revo gears to be put in. This meant a one piece driveshaft too with the spicer joints out of a donor Rodeo.

There are more things that are different on my truck than are stock I think. Most of which are from donor Rodeos and late Model Troopers.

Thanks again for the votes. Lots of people don't understand my truck when I explain because it doesn't have 20" wheels and such. Mine is just built to work and work all the time. Hunting, fishing, camping and trail riding is pretty much all it does anymore. Glad to see others appreciate it too.
