Having fingers would have probably made it a little easier also!

Adapt and overcome!

Inspired by your determination. That's a tricky job.

That pic would make a great avatar.

Accident or birth?

Birth! Left hand is also jacked. But at least i have a full thumb and index finger on that side! I just couldn't take a picture holding the phone with my right hand!

I dont let it stop me! Im a full time EMT / Firefigher and can stick a needle in a vein from across the room, im also the Rope rescue Guru for our Tech Rescue team and tie knots around most people. They always try harder when someone says "the Fingerless guy can do it? whats your excuse!"

Pretty sure my parents were sadistic my first toys were Lego's!

You sir are an inspiration for everyone who meets you. Not everyone is willing to give back to their communities like you do. May God continue to bless you forever.

Re: Stubbys Build Thread

Question for the Masses? Im going back and forth between the Affordable Offroad Elite Pre runner winch set or the Nates 4x4 Front and Rear combo #2. Any recommendations? Reviews? First Hand experience?

Disregard, After some light reading and some more google fu decided i dont want to deal with any hassle, Sounds like Affordable will be the route im going!

Got bored sitting inside so I fired up the heater in my humble little shop and works on the jeep!

Trailnets XJ cargo area net!



Then whipped up a little shelf for some organization!




Lastly moved the tools from the small action packer into the pelican case! Also added a few other things (winter survival gear) since it had more room!

Also went through my Jump kit (orange bag) replaced the expired equipment and added a few extra austere environment supplies!

Re: Stubbys Build Thread

So Today after cleaning them all up got the seats installed!





Figured while i had the seat out i would go ahead and put the new JCR center console bracket in ive had since Thanksgiving!






What a difference that made!

First one in!




and Finally Both installed. So much more comfy than the ones before especially because the guy that had it used to gangster lean in it and it was permanently indented back and to the right!

Well got some work done today before popping a structure fire this afternoon!

Got my new battery box from DirtBound Offroad put in. 2 of the studs were broke so I drilled them all out and dropped some new hardware in there!






Then I got my THOR cowl intake installed. Only could do so much with the grinder. Dont have a die grinder so finished it up with the dremel. Luckily I was just fighting up the clamps when the page dropped.

Hope to finish buttoning everything else up tom!
