Bud's last ride -
We hauled Bud up to Cheyenne yesterday to hand him off to his new owners, and word on the street is y'all may be seeing more shenanigans from the big beastie yet, right here in RCC
I wanted to again say a big "thank you!" to every one who has again helped me in the planning, design, and buildup for the truck, most especially Ben White, Steve Baker, Neil Harrison, Homer Smith, and my wife Tracy (you guys think I talk a lot here in RCC....) - you guys have been instrumental in some of the most critical component design and physical man-handling of the hardware to get the rig running and rolling, and it's the real unselfish offering of information from the people on this and other similar forums that enables us each to be better than we really are, and fuels our passion and respective abilities to bring our 'mad' ideas to life.
We have truly had a blast wheeling the truck, and I've learned a lot within the fabrication world, which I hope to take to the next level by doing 'Max-Level' work like this in a side venture I've started called 'Falcon Fabrication' - just word-of-mouth work - nothing formal (I'm keeping my regular j.o.b....for now). I'm not yet intending to do professional fabrication full-time, but I am taking on jobs like these to keep me busy and bring in some mad money for some of our future projects. I already have about 6 months worth of work booked and I'm very grateful for those opportunities, and I'm looking forward to many more years of fun in the shop and helping others achieve their 'mad' dreams
The little Dakota (...actually it really isn't that
) is currently running pretty dern'd well - it's getting some much-needed TLC and should be a good 4-wheeler for a year or so before we 'Maxify' it - and oh yeah - we're near certain the little Dakotas name...is "Maxx"
Cheers all! Keep the rubber on the rocks!!
