    I would avoid that shop in Vegas, that spray work didn't seem like the best, even after they had to take it back.
    Rudy is quite the fabricator too!

    probably not different than a jeep with no top....in some ways, a topless jeep with the windshield up is worse in terms of dust than laying the windshield down.

    Between the runs - mid vid they show a new multi-connect-point soft-shackle-incorporated winch line - that catches my eye.

    Oh, and Matt doesn't like tippy ;-)

    That winch line is the Freedom Winch Line from Bleepin' Jeep.
    It sure seems nice, but expensive too.



    Also I thought I heard Matt mention something about wanting a slower crawl speed for that V8.
    It sure did turn out great!

    First recovery using the freedom winch line...and corvair (edit - it appears that there was a different corvair first recovery just before this, but this one is pretty cool none-the-less)
