Ok, I admit it; I will say it out loud. I have "enhanced" body parts and I love my bolt-on's. I know; you're shocked. But it's true and I have to confess it before another trail goes by.
It all started when I was a young pup, full of stock parts, factory suspension, no add-on's, and just plain worthless on the trail. That was about 15 years ago. So "Dad" added some tube bumpers, a Warn winch, and one tire size up, but at least there were good ones -- BFGoodrich All Terrains -- and figured I was "built." Yea, right.
Bolt-on's were popular, as well as upgraded (bigger) body parts. So we started doing that -- spending money, finding bigger parts, and fixing other parts that broke because of the newer, bigger parts. The never ending cycle of owning an off-road rig!
So what did we do? We started building and enhancing even MORE. WyoTech (automotive technical training school) took me on as a build project -- talk about steroid enhancement! More businesses and supporters also kicked in to get me back on the trail-saving circuit. I grew up more.
So today, you ask, where are you? Well, the simple answer is: thinking about more enhancements like all good 4x4’s!!!
That’s my story.
