Yeah that's me, lived in Crown Point, so the people at the dealership saw me all the time. In fact one of the managers saw us coming back from the Bad Lands on I65 the next weekend after we got it, got a call from Bosaks on the way home to see if that was us in the dirty yellow Jeep.

That sounds like fun. I know we didn't mess around this time. ValpoJk went with us Sunday. We all had a blast. Jeep never gave up that's for sure. I'll post an album with pics up when I have free time

Thanks for the pics John. Second picture really does no justice as to how stuck I was. STILL cleaning mud out of the jeep. John's words as this pic was taken, in a chuckling voice " Here's one for the forums " haha
