    Put a dent in it,(topsoil), The mini really came in handy, especially in the tight places I wanted to go! A little liniment, couple cups of Joe, and headed out shortly!

    The Mini really saved a lot of time, especially at the other end of the yard! Lifting the bed in dump mode, and then just dumping a little as needed in certain spots! I used to do a lot of grade work with dozers and several different pieces of machinery. A lot of yrs. of experience with that so it's kind of a no brain er for me to plan my moves, and try to work smarter, not handling the material more than once!!! Got about 10 yds. placed and raked, finishing the front! My oldest son came in late last night from his 3 week hunting vacation, out west with his buddy! They both did well with their first Bull Elk , with a Bow! I really enjoyed his visit! We even had Elk sausage for breakfast!

    Looks cooler weather will stay with us for a bit as Fall is here with the changing color of the leaves, and some enjoyable, cooler days! Gonna try to finish up the topsoil, and grass seed today, possibly a little garden work, clean up and winding down. It won't be long and we'll be picking up leaves with the Cyclone Rake yard Vacuum! That thing really saves the back! Tomorrow looks like a chance of rain, we'll see what that brings, possibly tearing into a 4 wheeler that has a seal leak, that isn't getting any better! Always have rainy day projects! Stay Healthy!

    Had to cut a tree blocking the road at the hunt camp. It'll make nice firewood.

    I put (instead of drilling and mounting and wiring) led light bar headlights in the headlight slots. You can buy them off amazon they are jeep cherokee headlights. They literally are the same light. You need relays but it's an easy setup and they are sick. The thing is the brightest thing on the road even semi trucks don't have that kind of lumen rating.

    Got a lot done with the mini. Hauling wood, kindling, trimming trees, and even working on the security lights with the scissor lift! Heading back next weekend!

    Nice work everyone!
    So I just got my Suzuki Carry right from Japan 2 weeks ago now. I have already done a 2" lift, upgraded rear Shocks, New 300 pound front Springs, New LED headlights, 14" Rims with new Perrelli winter tires, and a Raptor spray-in bed liner. I am currently in the process of painting it, it is half done already and starting to look real nice. I am going to install a remote starter and power locks next. And Get my new bumper fabbed up. 20201021_220000 (1).jpg 20201020_172945 (1).jpg

    Looking good Joey!!!! All this in 2 weeks wow. I am curious to see how you mount the front bumper. When I built mine I had to get creative.

    Thanks Saitcho! Ya it's been many late nights, Clearly half ripped apart in the garage right now so not really drivable at the moment. It has also been getting cold and snowing so the wife wants her warm parking spot back, So that has been pushing me to get it done. Do you have any pics of what you did for the bumper? I would like to see.

    SAITCHO,
    Above your steel bumper, which looks great I might ad! Are those black rubber bumper stops? The 5 vertical, black, (looks like hard rubber), with the 1 1/2 holes in them! Looks like something I'm familiar with on maybe a loading dock, used for dock bumpers! I love the look!
