    As many of you know I lost my 80 series Landcruiser to a sinkhole last December this thread will keep up with the new hunting Rig build, and accessories to make it the perfect hunting rig.

    We will start with the old truck on its last day.

    Next is the roof rack and snorkel removal and transfer.

    The old battle wagon is looking pretty sad now.

    Got the electrical wired up rigid lights on the bumper, el cheapo on the rack until Rigid Industries decides to sponsor us!

    Winch is wired back up but it got pretty toasty in the recovery time for a Warn 15k.

    Better get to washing those old parts so they match the new buggy more gooder. But, not in the sippy-hole. Let's stick with the conventional bucket/hose routine. The new rig's lookin' good thus far.

    Looking good TLM, but don't forget the new part that seems to be a necessity with your driving. A good graphing depth finder with a forward looking feature seems in order.
