Re: PWJouster's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "TrailWhale"

I’m almost exclusively a user of baja designs, with the one exception being the rigid sae compliant fogs. They work really well for on road, never had any problems irritating other drivers with them.

Thanks for the clarification! Being from Texas I’m ignorant of such a distinction, that terrain is so foreign to me it might as well be mars lol.

5-10 feet from it you can carry on a conversation at normal volume. It’s by far the quietest compressor I’ve ever owned.

I’d be down for that! I’ve met up with rodeoflyer out at my place near blanco before. I think that would be great to meet some more centex power wagon guys and have some fun. There’s at least 3-4 other guys in the general area. A Texas get together would be awesome

Re: Borgeson 800123 box

Sadly there’s not a great box out there that I’ve found. I’ve tried all of them including the Borgeson and have wound up with a big 6 bolt rebuilt and tapped for hydro by Howe Steering. That’s lasted the longest for me going on two years so far.
