I'm nowhere even close to where I want my X to be, but one piece at a time is how I have to do it. There are so many incredible rigs here, and I have a long way to go to be in that class.
A GREAT BIG THANKS
to the NewX
(Jason & admins) for running such a great and informative site, and to all of you members who have contributed such great and useful knowledge that has inspired and directed me in the building of my X.
Absolutely, there is no way I'd be anywhere even close to where I'm at without the influence of this site. I've been into 4x4's a lot in the past, but getting my X and finding this place has given me a whole new appreciation for this hobby and passion all over again.
Having the time of my life!!!!!!!!
