He's strapped on the trailer (yes, my Jeep is male ......heading out to Rausch in the morning for a test run. Still have a few "little" things to do, but it's drivable and I'm dying to get it on the trail. Will have pics to share as always and will be thinking about you poor souls sitting at home tomorrow

......have a special guest riding with us tomorrow....you'll just have to wait till the pics are posted, to figure out who

I made the mistake of playing during a rain storm in the desert. Flash flood! Only time I got my Jeep stuck, and under 2 1/2ft of water too! I learned the doors only keep a little water out, ended up flooding the interior. She's clean now though. This was a couple months back.

Have fun on your trip Texapple! Be sure to get TONS of pics!

Frank is the greatest!!!

I'm grinning ear to ear and sang praises to the man all the home. My Jeep's performance was truely amazing. Everything worked perfectly. No ledge dropping or radical stuff today......we hit some relatively easy-moderate trails.

Tires gripped well, lockers made everything easy that I used to work my a$$ off on before, the new suspension kept me from hanging up and flexed great (had some fender rubbing, looks like I'll be going flat next) There are still a few nip/tucks he has to do before I'm back on the road daily again, but today's run was fantastic.

I'll try to get the pics up tonight - See if ya'll can recognize the WF member's Jeep that joined us.....

Looks like good fun for all. Except maybe the guy who's got to clean all the mud out of the inside!

For a minute there, I had to go check and make sure Lucy was still out in the driveway, that red Rubi threw me for a minute!

Looks like a good time, some day, some day....
