This is one of those projects that turn out better than you ever anticipated. This is a 1991 Jeep Wrangler that we have had on the ranch for years. It was this ugly blue color. We were not using it that much so we decided to make a hunting vehicle out of it.
After the back seat was added, we had a local boat upholsterer do the top and seats. That looked so good that we did a Mossey Oak camo wrap.
Turned out well!
Here’s the before shot.
Gay is back painting again after many years. She only paints at the ranch, outdoors and only what she actually sees. So far we have sunsets, meteor showers, landscapes, blue whistler northers and a goat. She is up to something!
We bought this six-wheel drive duce military dump truck about a year ago to use on the ranch and have hauled hundreds of tons of material with it. On cold, wet days we try to stay warm in the shop and service our equipment. Changing the oil in this thing took 10 gallons! One of the best investments in equipment we ever made.
What do you do with a 1991 Jeep Wrangler than has big tires and geared down transmission? Out here you gotta put a hunting seat on it! Just about wrapped this up, it’s off for a canvas top. When it warms up a bit we’ll add bed liner and a new paint job.
Sam Gaddis showed up not long ago with a new drone equipped with a GoPro camera. This rather amazing video is what resulted. No goats were harmed in the production of this film.
She turned 22 this year and is the oldest cow on the ranch. We moved her into the retired cow pasture last year where she has lots of water and feed close by. This cow is at the top of the breed, inducted years ago into the Longhorn Hall of Fame. The last time we measured her she was right at 84 1/2 inches tip to tip.
