XJ in Alaska

I'm on vacation in Alaska. I spent the day in and around Skagway, and I was walking just outside of town thinking it would be nices if I could bring my Cherokee up here when I came upon this XJ parked on the street. Made me smile.

I got lucky and got a little tail up here too

That's it. I guess I was bored tonight.

2001 XJ RE 5.5 ED w/T&T Y-link longarm, 37" MTR's, D44/D60, ARB's, Rubicon Tcase, and all the usual junk.

I want to move there so bad. Alot of good trails? Hell I'm sure that going from the house to the grocery store could be an adventure depending on how far out you live. Its the last refuge from the "life" we have here south carolina thats for sure.

I don't blame people for their mistakes, but I do expect they pay for them.

Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
