Question whats your hunting rigs?

I was wondering what rigs you guys use for hunting? Post some pics up.

I picked up a 1979 scout traveler that im working on to turn it into my hunting rig. I got tired of my loud 6.0 and plus the thing is way to heavy and big to get into some spots. Im calling it "project prairie chicken".
i plan on putting about a 6 inch lift on it with custom bumpers and bigger tires. Im painting it dessert tan with matte black bumpers and wheels. thinking about trying to get a winch and put big off road lights on the front and build a bracket on top for more lights. Im going to tint the all the glass 5%. A buddy of mine took it in to do a bunch of metal work to it in his high school shop class. I cant wait to get it back and start working on it. I have a bunch of motor work and tranny work to do to it before i can use it. Plus its alot cheaper to work on this thing than my powerstroke.

Heres some before pics. I will post pics up up while im working on the thing.



what do you guys think?
Im also thinking of getting two of these and putting one in the front and one in the back seat.

Lets see some of your pics of your rigs.
