    No good place to put the all the truck and trailer build pics as well as pics from the cross-country journey that I can hopefully get, so I figured I'd create a place. Too busy trying to actually get on the road right now, so not able to post any up quite yet.

    If you need help moving something, and no one else will help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire: 4xsteve

    Not THAT theme music Sam! Haha. The A-Team! Although, if you saw the inside of my trailer, that theme would certainly qualify.

    You gonna need those boggers in the PNW! I must say I am impressed the car would pull the loaded trailer up into the rig :D

    Not that I can deny that, but how many rednecks do you know that don't own anything with a V-8? Even more, a yellow supercharged European car, the ONLY American made sportbike, and a 4wd truck that is not a Chevy, Ford or Dodge and cannot power its way out of a mud hole if life depended on it. Haha
    (Admittedly though, the Boggers do kinda cancel a lot of that)

    It might've with its old tranny gears, but not now since I re-geared it for highway driving; It was winched up with the Gecko. I'll try to load one if those pics after I post this.

    I second that, and after seeing the Gecko tow the franken80 out at GMP, coupled with the last few pics, I have decided it is about as close to a swiss army knife as any vehicle can be.

    Thanks for the compliments - I think?

    Most of y'all don't even know about the dozens of times the Gecko has towed the tractors around my swampy yard UNASSISTED, the handfull of times it's towed the combined tractor-trailer around the same swamp-like yard assisted either with a co-driver or the winch, and the numerous times I've used the wireless winch remote to pull while I drive the semi.

    Considering the price of the winch and that it's geared as a high-speed, I'm extremely pleased that it has held up to all my abuse. I'm thinking about becoming a distributor actually.

    And Sid, definitely make this thread "dry" as you mentioned, there is much more insanity to come. :)

    I have nothing but compliments for you Steve. It is amazing to see some of the "out of the box" solutions you come up with. I may not always agree with them, but still neat to see them work.
