Well, just spent the two past nights reading over your entire build thread. Awesome rig, man! Definitely provides inspiration for a lot of us. Though I don't think I'll ever get to where you are.

Can't wait to see what the future has in store for your WJ.

Just a thought.... but if you fut a couple well placed red decals on the sides, you could call your rig 'the joker' (I know, not origional.. but it's what I think of when I see your profile pic

running trails in and around the southern Sawatch mountains and staying down in the valley east of Salida...

expecting to do Chinaman Gulch, Mt Antero and nearby, Alpine Tunnel/Tomichi Pass, etc - then wind the week down with easy trails like Poncha Creek/Bonanza area, Hayden Pass & Taylor Mt.

taking one day off from trails to just do family stuff too, probably going to the Royal Gorge Bridge park that day.
