    Good for you for knowing better and not let his egging you on get to you! Your setup is very similar to ours..locked front and rear, chromos as well, but we just sold our 35's and upgraded to some 37's..and of course it's a Frontier not a Jeep.

    I have a Jeep though it is pretty stock. I know I will kick the Jeep thing and go back to the Toyota thing at some point.

    Camping in my Grand Cherokee in Death Valley. Used to have a Wrangler but it was too small and leaky for me (it rains -- a lot -- in western Oregon where I live)

    This is what the guys in Kingman do to Toyotas.

    I actually had a ride in that one. Rode great! (And yes, it really is a Toyota, or was at one time.)

    I did some work for a club that put on a competition. I loved it - but couldnt get my head around the amount of money that was being flipped over! Yes i know - thats what they are built for... But still...!

    2. This one made me laugh! The driver was swearing something feirce at his spotter to move! Everyone else saw the danger... The spotter didnt - and he was looking almost straight up at it!! No one was hurt in the making of this picture!!

    I was going to add more - but for some reason it wont let me!

    I was cruising the hood with the dog the other day...and I noticed an FJ for sale. A real one :) OMG, i need to go back and see what he's asking. For it's age, it looks to be in pretty good shape...I bet it's expensive.

    Hey MOJO! Do you know the manufacturer of the front bumper on the Hilux (or what we call the Tacoma)?

    thanks!

    Yea we are so ready for the Arizona summer to be over and hit the trails again. My husband has been working on it non-stop..

    It will be getting powdercoated black and we are going to paint the panels silver. Just picked up our 37" spare last night, a spare that had only been used once and we got it for $80 which is a steal.

    Nonsense, you are not inferior :) You can build your Jeep up more :D Welding/Fabrication is his hobby (self taught), he does A/C and Heating as a living.

    and thanks! Build pictures we just keep on his photobucket account, but I do use my DSLR for most of the pictures :) Once it's all done there will be photos of it on my smugmug.

    I've actually starting fabbing a few small items now. Picked up a used MIG and upgraded my grinder, and actually built a few things. :D Not sure if I'll ever get to that point though. Do you guys own a tubing bender?

    Anyway, we did an excellent run out in the mining country of the Cerbat mountains yesterday. I have lots of pics to process, but here's a preview.

    Nice shot first of all, and nice choice of tires :) My husband applauds the black-out lettering (rather than choosing to have the white lettering face out). He says that's how true wheelers run them haha.

    As for a tube bender, believe it or not it's all been done with a harbor freight bender that's at least 4 years old.

    I wish I had fabrication skills, or even simple welding skills.....it'd make getting my replacement axles under the jeep a lot easier...rolleyes1.gif

    The rig looks good btw. thumb.gif

    Thanks. I was pretty freaked out about it at first but he really knows how to make things come together. Him being able to fabricate and weld has saved us a lot of $$, and every bit counts.
