Nice setup cay. I'm surprised I haven't seen your truck before. My parents live in Atascadero, and my best friend lives in Morro Bay. I have spent lots of time in that area. I may move near there later this year.

Thanks all, especially you Gigger The Nova belongs to a friend in Cayucos, it is a show n go rig. Running a 383 stroker making 550 horsepower, less the engine he's done all the work himself, even the paint. We take it over to Bakersfield to the drag strip, it'll run mid 11's. He can't keep doing it though until he installs a roll bar.

The bumper works very well, I had it painted to match like I did with my Excursion. It does keep the deer out of my windshield.

Will look for you around town Bill, when are you back in the area?

For sure. Our farm has a ton of hills/paths/cricks. It's nice to go out with friends and family and ride. I used to race dirt bikes, going from that 2 a jeep on roids, so much more enjoyable.

I think our next investment will be a toy hauler. We have to find one that will be able to pull both rzr's. Never really looked for any yet. Don't even know where to start. Haha. Defintely look for the pictures cay.

You need to get on top of that 39 ft Montana and make sure the roof is sealed down real tight at the front and there is no water leaks inside at the front of the RV or down any of the walls.
