Does anyone else have any other projects you're working on until your Bronco Raptor gets all your attention?

I will kick it off with my most recent project. I picked up a 2021 Yamaha YXZ1000R SS SE to hot rod. My town is SXS friendly so we can drive them on the street and straight to off-road trails. I love having a high-performance sports car, but our roads are pretty rough from snow plows and our average speed limit is 30 mph. So I decided to build a SXS rally car that would be as fun on-road as it is off-road! The YXZ1000R is a great platform for this because they were built to be short-course race cars. They have a high-revving (10,000 rpm) 1000cc engine, a 5-speed sequential transmission (not a CVT like most of the other SXS), and they are lightweight compared to other SXS. So they are a lot more visceral and much more engaging to drive.

Here's my modification list so far:

Weller Racing WR Edition Turbo Kit
JTE Boostlok Kit
Billet Racing Products side mirrors
Ryco Motorsports turn signal kit

What engine do you have in the Jeep? Are you going to keep it after the Bronco Raptor arrives?

I decided to get a real estate license as a side hustle. Joined a team with a former boss of mine. I just got it, so just looking for clients now. It’ll def help pay for my aftermarket parts addiction. :LOL:

Both of those are good side hustles! I have a real estate and mortgage background and it has always served me well.

Nice, looks like great visibility for traveling. Seems like good mileage for 7.3L gas.

Thanks. I believe the windshield is the largest in the RV industry, 55x78 inches, especially in a 25 foot coach. You want glass coverage with this one. It's about $4000 for replacement installed.

Getting myself acquainted with the new boat and getting the dock slip set up for those long summer nights.
