Yeah, yeah. Post a pic of it, dammit.
Hey those pelican coolers are heavy when full of ice and beer.
There's a 45 q cooler on the back seat, plus the mini ugly drum Smoker .......
It's a tank. If SHTF and I need to ram my way thru rioters or parking gates, I'll simply drop it into 4WD full time and let that diesel torque do it's thing.
Would like to SAS that thing with Dana 60's.......but $$$$$$$$$
Curb weight is 6000 lbs.
Here's my '14 JK (Can't get photobucket or this site to upload image correctly?)
Thanks for that Warrior!
I no longer have my 97 Cherokee. I gave it to my oldest daughter who is 19 . Its a decent vehicle.
My '13 Wrangler Rubicon:
My daughter crossing the Golden Crack in Moab UT. This was about 5 years ago. She made it without a tow strap. The front passenger side tire was just about to start walking up the other side. You can see her laughing because my buddy was spotting her and made her stop halfway across and just hold the balance with her ass end up in the air. What a blast that trip was. Great memories.
This was my son a few minutes later. His jeep was built to an extreme. Look at the articulation (axle drop on the front passenger side tire). Note how his cab was almost level versus the lean my daughter's jeep had on the same obstacle. That's what it's supposed to do when you're rock crawling.
Moab and utah in general can be lots of fun and lots of dollars spent.......
A few pics from the archives.
