    I figured yellow tops being a deep cycle would be better than the 6TL's. They are a little more than I thought for some reason I thought they were $99. They are actually $169 before discount and 6TL's are $105.

    I really don't have a problem but I suppose is the Yellow top going to last $70 longer...

    There is another place I'm torn. I do like the camo look, mines flat olive drab. I've been trying to track down the reg that covered vehicle markings in that era. Also trying to crank my bumper nuimbers as well.

    I suppose I could just follow its progress like the unit never loss the vehicle, giving it a modern era paint job.

    Isn't CARC expensive?

    I totally agree people look at you different when you use it as a grocery getter, to include calling the authorities so they can get you to return it to base....

    Man do whatever you want to YOUR truck - only thing I have seen bad outta this bunch of yahoo's is you gotta post pics or your dead meat and hung out to dry - so where are the pics (might as well start it off)

    Good to have you post a thread.

    If you built it to everyones liking - you will never get done and you will not receive a dime from anyone on how you build it from their suggestions.

    Advise is always free and you and pic and choose what is best for you.
