Nice work on the details. The FJ6x vent on the rear aluminum "C" pillar is a nice touch. Does it have any function beyond looking cool?

Just looked at the pics on your site, great fab work. real clean with some nice ideas & details.

Ya...that billet aluminum 60 series vent was Don's idea to tie it all in...serves no function beyond "looking cool". The fab work on this rig is extremely tight indeed. That's where the majority of the build money was spent....1,500 hours at an hourly rate adds up quick :)

Well it all looks great! I thought it might flip open to hold a shower or have a light inside, or who knows?!

whew...1500hours is most of a work year!

Ya...this rig was at FC Fab for over a year and with the exception of a few weeks, Don was on it full time. Bummer that the original build thread on Pirate4x4 was lost due to their crappy software....it showed all the love and details that went into it.
