Chazzy....You are very kind to say so. I had thought about this for over a year and then it literally hit me in an instant when I was in Northern and saw the tires with the 1/2" holes for the axle. I think that the passion we have about ULF and all that goes with it can be dampened alot by the thoughts that come with the territory. I have had to stay close to the vehicle so many times knowing that my destination was just out of reach. I had thought about and had designed a backpack for the beast but that became a bad reality show. So now I get to bang this thing around some hiking trails and mud and rocks and see what fails. I can't wait to give it a try. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with NHTSA.
