Getting ready too. Probably roll in early Friday morning. Got the mule already loaded in my Deuce. Probably gonna be a tiring trip but thats what I started out to do with this project and I'm gonna see it through at least once. Gonna have to pitch a tent since there is no way to sleep in the front seat of this thing like I do in the pickup truck. I hope the weather is good but it isn't too promising for Saturday. Gonna be chilly!

I don't know how much they chop out John. I just showed them a picture of what I wanted the finished truck to look like and they called and said they had it done. I'm pretty sure it was over 30 inches because even stock tires are pretty big in diameter plus the length of the springs.

Well they sure did a nice job for you. How much did losing the extra axle affect the ride of the truck? ( I assume it started life as a M35).

...had a pretty good time. there were probably 8 mules running stuff out and about 12 more with dealers and shooters. lots of activity. so,, Friday was maybe a little below average crowd and kinda rainy in the afternoon. but,, Saturday was a whopper of a crowd. late afternoon was jam packed, plus for some reason all the mules bug out about five and there was just two or three going,,, I was swamped until ten,,,,
