Back in the road. Test drive was all good. No mechanical issues.

I finally have great brakes, steering and power.

Open for something Sunday morning busy all day Saturday. Something close by shirt trip.

Weekend after Saturday morning is great

Driving back and forth to Tonopah, I saw a surplus yard right in Beatty that had a few trailers sitting for sale. Never really thought about stopping to see how much they were selling for.

It's been a frustrating 60 days of work. Seems non of the mods was as straightforward as folks say. Lots of fab work to get everything to work.

But it was strong on the street and drive a lot better. Just have to hit the dirt

If you can make it out Sunday, we're gonna have a good time and your jeep will make it. I've got 31's on my 99TJ.

I definitely would, but I work 10-6... So that days pretty much shot.. Where are you guys going.. Maybe I can scope it out tomorrow, just solo.. And maybe plan to make it out with a group on a later date..

I like going up on this little mountain range from blue diamond. I traced the trail in blue and the orange part is the ridge line full of caves if you dare enter. Or the drive is a nice view of Vegas. It dead ends at the end and have to turn around but its a nice easy cruse
