Just returned from my friends shop, he is working on a rock crawler! This is another reason that owning a Prowler makes the most sense for me! Hard work, cost, time consuming, up keep! Ah to be young again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!RD

I have been helping him wire it, Holley FI, MSD 6AL, Electric Water Pumps, cooling fans for water, Trans, and differentials. Yeah it is a 572, we pulled it out of his mud truck, factory rated at 600 plus HP, and Torque out of site. He built the frame in his shop, all mild steel tubing, can't even count the number of points he fish mouthed the tubing for fit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I send pictures as he gets closer to finish

Looks nice. I think he needs to make us all some full cages for our Prowlers.

Yeah, and 10 years ago he had a hard time changing oil! Life sure changes! He started a business as a cement contractor working out of the back of a pickup truck, and now he has a 10,000 sq. ft. building and a fleet of trucks! The American Dream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!RD

When I built my house, he approached me about doing concrete work for me. I liked him immediately and talked at great length about his skills, and what I wanted. I hired him! While I was still working at the Hospital, I invited him to bid on several jobs through the years, he did about 60% of the work that we sent out for bidding, always had great results. He built a great business, now he is playing all winter on his toys!
