Psychomidget sent me some new Superwinches that I cleaned up and slapped on to finally complete my front end. I took it out to the lake for a test drive.

Thats the Powerline trail from Anchorage to Kenai. I may be able to see about getting a sticker for you if you want one, but not for a while unfortunately.

Yeah, it sat for quite a while. I'm getting back to it. Just picked up the trans kit and will be painting the block this weekend. Happy to be coming home?

Feels kinda weird, but its gone by fast. Im going to be super busy. Ill be trying to get my 2nd gen rodeo in shape to head back to school in the Fall. I havnt checked it out in person yet, so I dont know whats all involved aside from body work. I need to get the clutch changed out in the spacecab too, and im bringing back a 9k winch from the states, so thatll be sweet.

Yeah, it doesn't seem like it's been long since I was down there pulling that motor out of your truck. Hopefully by the time you get back I'll have the trooper up and running!
