I have met and wheeled with him several times. Mostly in SD but he has been to CM too. When I first met him he drove a very bad arse red FJ-45 with a non US 6.5 turbo diesel. That thing screamed! Heard rumor that the axles in the twisted Customs buggy came from that truck and he is "returning" that truck to daily driver trim. Kevin Kuhn knows him well I believe.

Checked, no frame crack, but the spring hangers were nowhere to be found. :-P
