Okay, so, the Mountain Murray, is,  COMPLETE!!!

Finally, I can enjoy driving it! But let's start from the beginning... December 2nd 2018, we come home from church and decide to ask these guys if they'd sell us a couple parts from his 2 Murrays sitting in his yard. "Nope", he says, "You can have 'em both". Well, right before we pick them up, we blew up the Hummer's engine, so we borrow a friends truck for a day and pick up mowers we had acquired all day. This one sat around 'til about mid January when I got it running and driving. Tore it down to frame the 1st of February with intentions of a "mild" off road build to have complete by April to sell. That all changed on the 20th when I entered it in the Build Off. Long story short, I didn't get much accomplished until June and from then on. Anyway, after a whole lot of pressure with this build, some misunderstandings, a lot of frustration, and sucking my wallet dry several times, we're finally here!

So, just to get an idea of how far she's come...

Before...

I would like to thank:

-Noah for helping me get some welding done without charging me (we're still going to pay you,  lol!).
-Noah at the fab shop for getting major parts to the build done for great prices and on time.
-My grandfather for helping me get the thing running, and especially working on the Doc Locker being that I most likely would not have been able to complete that without your help.
-My dad for taking it all over the place to get something done, or just going to buy a part. 20 minutes to town one way in a car that gets 16 MPG is a lot in gas.
-Joe at the junkyard for giving me the parts that I needed to complete this build.
-All you forum members for giving me good advice throughout the project.
-And of course the Admins that keep everybody playing by the rules, keeping everything up to par, and keeping the forum a safer place to be than most forums.

Thank you all very much!

Now, back to the MM...

Sorry about all the videos..... I couldn't splice them all together so I guess I'm left with 8 parts.
