Agreed - that's exactly what I told him the other day.

Looks good Griffin - very nice work and on a budget to boot. ;-)

Went wheeling today, went with a buddy who has a 95' 4runner. The Jeep did great, It never got stuck even on the expert black diamond trails.

The yota got sideways and had to be rescued.

Thank you, I appreciate the compliment. The AW4 would be nice offroad but I really enjoy shifting through the ax15's gears and offroad it crawls nicely in 4lo. The locker helps a lot when it comes to crawling over stuff with momentum instead of constantly having to shift.
