Best MJ storyNot sure that I have a best story.


What owner loves best about CC Mainly that it exists.














What a rig. One of the proud few to run the 2.5L and show it as an equally capable power plant. Your truck is a thing of beauty. Built just right, without blowing the bank. You have been a pretty constant presence here on the club for quite awhile. You've always been on to offer advice, or help a member out that needs a hand. It's not just the truck that makes the MJOTM, but the member behind it also.


Congrats on your MJOTM. Enjoy the spotlight!


Rob :cheers:

The housings are 3/16" plate that I shaped by hand, the lights are a Maxxima brand LED with built in back up lights.

There's a few pics of how I built them on my build thread and I can get you a part # for the lights if you need it.
