There's no greater thrill than that first trip out of the shop. Looking good!

Off to Home Depot for some supplies!

Please allow about 3 hours for this trip as your ride will be a parade and your stop will be a car show.

I think the trailer completes the "package". Looks great. And, with the lunette eye, your neighbors won't be bugging you to borrow it for Home Depot runs.

The awesome and cool factor of the T3-C is that it has a tailgate! Seriously, how many of us need an amphibious application? I would think even a T3-C could meet that need with a rubber seal of some sort. There is also the advantage of having stake pockets with side and end rails with top bows. Add a canvas cover and you have something to sleep in that's off the ground. You have a nice looking rig. 8)
