    Here's mine. Certainly not for hardcore stuff, but it's worked on desert/fire/muddy roads.

    I had a '85 2wd F150 with the 300 inline 6,it was rusted out pretty bad though but did great in mud and snow with the limited slip differential and Workhorse tires I put on it.

    Love the hood scoop, the optional mirrors, and how the passenger-seat kinda 'took-a-back-seat' to gun mounts!

    Thanks. My wife only rides when we take branches to the rear of the farm to make wildlife havens (also known as yard clean up) so I fabricated a gun rack to replace the passenger seat with a factory seat base plate making switching back and forth easy. My pistol caliber carbines fit better than the longer barrel gun shown in the photo. I usually carry one whenever I am out. I have added other mounts also, like in it's trailer.

    The mirrors are US military truck mirror. They are WONDERFUL.

    This is what I will be working on adding when it gets warm again - Spade gripped AR15 on a flexible mount facing forward.

    Ain't it great when you reach that golden age when you can care about what you can see instead of what other's see?
