Default Teaser of the new "Jethro"

So I decided to post a couple teaser pics of the new rig, finally came home today after 6 mos worth of fab work. Down to wiring and plumbing basically and maybe a little paint Those of you who knew the old 40 that Jethro wheeled in probably wont be able to tell that this is the "same" 40, or at least thats what I started with...

Whoa, certainly looks different! Did you do drivetrain mods too (I see a centered rear diff)?

Well it's got to be Jethro with the 90 shiling sticker on the back bumper.

The 40's looking good.
