    Are you turning the land cruiser into an off-roader? Or just a cruiser

    My wife and I are leaving in a week for Moab, so building it into more of an overland rig for this trip, bumper/ tire carrier, it has electronic lockers front and rear etc but it’ll still drive well on the hwy, but eventually it’ll be like my last 4runner was. Winch, armor, 37s etc
    Just doing a quick build on it now before the trip and I’ll do more over the winter.

    New toy in the shop! Really excited, got it with 4 buckets, one of them is a 30” tilting bucket for ditching. 2400 hours and inside a heated shop it’s whole life.

    I pulled the track off yesterday because it had no tension on it. The track adjuster blew out the seal so I’ve got to get a seal kit for it. It drips a little bit of fuel too when I pulled it in the shop but it’s hard to tell where it’s coming from because everything in the engine compartment is yellow.

    How did your trip to Moab go? That would be my idea of a vacation!

    We ended up having to cancel the trip. I couldn’t get the Land Cruiser done in time so we rescheduled it!

    I did my best to have the front end rebuilt and new wheel bearings but I just couldn’t finish it.

    GCDuke equipment had this Steiner in the other day with the flex deck on it, pretty cool. I really like the Ventracs I’ve used, I wonder what the efficiency would be like on my properties, compared to a zero turns

    Milling up some ash yesterday too, it’s a messy job.

    Immediately regret selling my equipment trailer lol. I’ve been thinking a bit about getting a deck over dump with fold down sides. Maybe a 16 foot.

    Been buying and selling preseason before I get started for the year. We had a couple inches of snow here yesterday. Sold that Cat 301.8 and bought this package deal from a local guy. Dump trailer, Toro TX525 wide track diesel with a bunch of attachments. Can’t wait to put it to work this year hopefully the work keeps coming in. In the meantime I’m flipping equipment and finishing up the snow season.

    Removed a bunch of cedars today, and then drilled 10 post holes with the new machine, didn’t get any pictures though.
