Lol. So do I. But it's only got 123 miles on it right now (had 13 when I test drove it, 23 when I drove her off the lot) so I'm trying not to let the Hemi foot drop too much yet. But with the 3.92 gears and limited slip, it's not easy. Of course, I didn't buy a truck expecting good gas mileage.

So a buddy and I have been actively stand up paddle boarding recently. We've been hitting up the cove. TONS of leopard sharks breeding right now. Very cool to see as always!

Last time we were all up there it seemed real rutted up. Not complaining at all, don't get me wrong. Did they do some maintenance since?

So I finally put my house up for sale. Special JF discount for interested parties.

Anyone who has been to my house and seen the junk pile, left over jeep parts, piles of boxes and welding inside the house will be amazed at what it looks like now. Pretty incredible what can be done in only 15 years.

Well I'm still up here. Met up with a fellow member from here. Glad to of met u josh. We did Jacoby canyon. As we were heading over a sever downpour with wicked lightening beat our butts. Mind u I only had a safari top on. I got soaked BAD. After that josh left and I headed over to gold Mt. Actually it wasnt easy. There's a gatekeeper now. And took me about 10 tries. Then met up with about ten jeepers stuck on the waterfall section. Whole new trail in the rain. Then I headed to jb. It is easier only because the gatekeeper is a joke now. Got stuck about 1/3 of the way in.. High center on a bolder when I slipped off.as i tried to get unstuck I got centered on both axles my rear shaft and my oil pan. It was a bad one. Couldn't stack out of it so had to winch it. Nearly shearing my oil pan. Also ripped the fittings off my rear drive shaft and almost blew it up.Not sure how the pan isn't leaking. Then met up with 2 guys in an LJ and a 4 Dr Rubi. Wheeled the rest of jb. Which made it interesting since they were mildly built. Then had to spot 5 Cherokees from death. Camped at holcolm camp ground. Today so far weather is gorgeous. Gonna hit a few more trails before heading home. Good times
