Beautiful! I had some custom milling done and was surprised how much the log bowed
So the guy kept flipping it over so I didn't end up with a bunch of wedges!
Don't waste your time on punky wood- when it dries the bugs go nuts in it, especially the carpenter bees

Ordered my engine block heater from Geno’s Garage and it showed up fast. Perfect timing as the cold weather and snow are coming.

Merry Christmas IH8MUD followers🎄
After spending time with family they had down time playing with toys and relaxing. I figured I’d go play with my Toy and Reload. Went above our community to play around in the fresh snow.
Found a guy and his son stuck and pulled them out.

Is that not fulfilling? You know what I'm saying. Merry Christmas. All the blood and tears @Hojack. It sure beats being stuck without proper equipment in a place you were not prepared for. And that's better than those who didn't even try. You are a good man 👍

He’s a lucky man too! That’s a beautiful truck and setup. ❤️

That moment when you are in the ideal..

It rained here. It never used to rain on Christmas Eve or even Thanksgiving.

Your 60 sounds so awesome!
Thanks. It definitely turns heads and gets a lot of conversation.
Looks like those Cooper tires are still treating you well.
Really love them. On packed snow, ice, slush, deep snow they do really well. They are a great all around tire.
How's it been starting in this cold snap.
It’s started great mid 20s with just grid heater. I have everything ready for the block heater but temperatures haven’t gotten cold enough for that yet. Will be doing that before venturing to the Crater Lake Property for sure.

Front locker wasn’t working. Got another thread but thought I’d document on the build thread for future reference. Some good tips for testing. My locker engagement light works and have ~12v on the supply side to the locker wire harness.

Checked resistance of the locker with ohmmeter Rx1 resistance scale. 3 ohms of resistance.

Lifted front axle off the ground with forklift.
Hubs locked. Spin drivers tire and front axle spins. Spin passenger and front axle spins. Engage locker but both front wheels will not spin.
