I love those "mountain man" jack stands. Looks like they worked well.

Transmission controller is absolutely awesome 100% happy with it
Super easy to make it work and shifts at any desired rpm,

Controller was $ 590
I got TPS sensor from 1995 H1 for $ 115 bucks

Aftermarket rpm sensor for $65 bucks

Amd done.

Haha it wasn't easy to balance the body on those logs but I managed it some how,
special tanks to my chain saw and old jack from Kia van ;)

thats a very tastefully done customized humvee. i usually dont like what people do with them (big flashy wheels and flat black paint) but this rocks.

best part is, youre free to put whatever you want or dont want on it, and arent shackled to trying to find authentic military parts if you dont want to.

if i had 2, id have one like this! glad to see it out in the great outdoors and it looks like pup enjoys it. my retrievers dont care for the loud rumble of my A1. they wont stay in it.
