That's a good idea, I'm just thinking if we put our company name on it we can claim it's a business vehicle

We will probably take it to Big Bear, the owner has wheeled it there quite a bit. His parents have a cabin up there so he may even show up for the meet & greet. I gave him your information, he hadn't heard of your shop and he's getting a JKU to replace this Jeep. He has a list of things he wants to do to it...............don't we all

Haha, we may have to arm wrestle for it

I would say his, just so I don't seem greedy and because I do have my big orange pumpkin.

But everyone knows that this is California, and everything is really mine

He made me test drive it, maybe he just trust's my judgment and knowledge

Hmmmm...........that sounds wonderful, but this is Mike we're talking about. Lol

He just likes to have toys and want's his own Jeep, plus he can claim it's an anniversary gift since our 31st is Tuesday. He's actually very smart

Plus he's got years of making up to do for bringing home that damn Mocha dog

Stan or Dennis might want to take a look at the front lower control arm. I think that bump I see in it is the upper control arm mount. That would mean it is not a true 4 link long arm. Maybe a RC kit or one like it. Dosen't make it bad just not fond of that kind of bars.

No sorry. I PM'd stan to look at the picture. It's not a bad system just some of us feel it can bind in certain situations and not give the best articulation. You might never notice the difference. Just an observation. Gotta go, off to church.

Next to the discovery center near jenks lake called the boondocks. No camp fires allowed is the downside.

You can also pick up a free map of ohv trails there at the center. It's a good place for information.

As you head up Hwy 38 there are several campgrounds, my favorite is Heartbar, but I like it because it has sites big enough for my 28' camping trailer. If you want to tent camp there are several that have tent sized camp sites, just drive through them and check them out. Or make a day trip first to check them all out and then make reservations when you want to go back to camp. They should all have seasonal camp hosts who can answer questions. You can stop at the CDF ranger station as you start up the hill and get maps for fire road trails. There are also some nice campgrounds in Idyllwild, you can get there from Hemet or Banning.

Also, you can camp fairly unrestricted on BLM land, but I'm not too sure about where those areas are other than in the deserts like Glamis. Big Bear area is mostly state and county.

I've been talking to the owner and watching it for about a month. There has been one other in Visalia I was watching, but he wanted too much and wouldn't come down. I noticed it gone on Friday so I guess it sold. I liked this one better anyhow

I just spent 2 hours washing my Jeep too. I discovered sap on the top and hood from the trees at the lake last weekend. That stuff is brutal, I used a razor blade very carefully and got the two biggest spots. I'll have to deal with the others later.

I'm going into town for a little retail therapy, maybe a new swimsuit or shoes It's Mikes fault, he went pig hunting this afternoon
