Tough to tell on my phone but is it in the rear of the tub? Either way I'm concerned about surviving the elements ie snow rain dirt etc

Well its located at the back of the cab, and front of the bed. It will also be protected by a skid. There will be no snow where we are moving.

I will be a Floridian again by the end of 2014 if all goes well. One of the many reasons the Flop had to go. There are not many Rocks in FL.

Yeah, kinda a way of life decision for the wife and I. Her field of work pays more in FL and there are a lot more options, mine pays the same no matter what. I will not have to work so hard, that way and have more time to enjoy life.

There is actually a good bit of rocks and wheeling to do in central Florida near Ocala. My uncle lives there and wheels there all the time. If and when you move down there I can give you his contact info if you want to do some more with the jeep than cruising Daytona beach and the local malls
