Thumbs up New member from Las Vegas

Just picked up my first Jeep, a 2010 Rubicon Unlimited with a Dakota Customs 6.1 hemi swap:



The truck was an eBay purchase, and a bit of an impulse buy. I Picked it up with 35k miles from North Carolina, and drove it home to Vegas across 3 days, more mileage than the previous owner put on the Jeep in several years.



The road trip was great, Charlotte to Nashville, through to Dallas, and straight through to Vegas. From forest, to plains, through Snow, and into the Desert, the truck ran great, ran cool, and did 22 hours straight for the final leg.





Safely back home:
