Gorgeous! Asking price? Out of my range for sure, but my wife loves these. I really want to do an early fj40, but yeah...


edit: Oh, and with this thing being Orange to boot....I better not let her see this pic!

I'd rock that bronco.

Once this chick i knew saw me drive by after not seeing her for a few years, and she wa sall "you looked great driving that bronco!"

And i was all "it's a jeep dammit!" and never talked to her again.

Thanks, we like how it turned out too. We'd like to get $40k, but we also know the economy might not support that price.

Here's a couple of links to the build, be patient - our web server is behaving badly.

Well khris that is how crazy an effect love can have on you. I have no kids and honestly scared to death of having any. I was half lucky with my inlaws. Father in law is way cool and we hangout a lot. His wife on the other hand is bat **** crazy. Like literally crazy. She robbed us once. We had them over for dinner and my wife grabbed her purse she almost forgot and found all of her jewelry in it. Not some of it, all of it.

Sounds like way too much work, I'll stick with the list of randoms and keep enjoying life headache free. LOL Not saying I've never been in love but definitely haven't found anyone that's worth the baggage coming along with it. Quite happy single, just find it funny that for every say 1 story that makes kids and relationships sound cool, there's about 25 that make it sound borderline miserable.


And Marn, is it wrong that I think I could easily picture my dog being equally as dumb as that spider?

Dang, I cannot say enough good about ARB. I bought their fridge hold down kit and one of the straps frayed pretty bad the first time using it. Needless to say I just emailed ARB instead of driving down to 4WP and waiting for them to re order a kit... then drive down again. Anyways I was just expecting a single strap to replace the broken one, instead they sent me a whole new kit. Granted it is only a $30 kit, but still that is some top notch customer service in my eyes.

Burro wash, A long rough trail. Nothing too technical just softball size rocks everywhere that makes it slower. But the reward at the end is a good one with a private cove on the Colorado River.

Much better than I got with Or Fab, never heard anything back about the **** job with the missing parts.

And Matthew, gasoline didn't work to clean off the foam residue that was stuck to the powder coat, it actually ruined the finish more (I knew I shouldn't have listened to you, haha).

Its pretty washed out as you drop into the final canyon (right before the water) these days. You'll want a little bit of clearance for sure, especially on the way out. Its a great camping spot, camped down there last Labor Day.

I can always appreciate any well made & built vehicle & I LOVE classic bronco's, the real classics though, not the 80's that are listed as classics now.

And along with her comes a MIL that you dispise, fear, can't stand... right? And then that progresses to having a kid or kids which then take every dime you had for any toys that your wife may have actually allowed because the numbers I hear for diapers, daycare, education, etc are outright insane and along with those costs you now have a burden that takes up virtually every spare moment that you have when not working. Am I hearing all this right? Just want to make sure... And on top of that, from what I've heard is that once your married not only does your wife gain weight but she also drastically cuts back on the frequency of sex and BJ's...

This is just what I've picked up on this forum over the year or two... Well with exception to Garza, he somehow seems to have possibly landed the one exception to the rule. LOL Although the kid just started so who knows, it may be changing...

I'll go ahead and ***** about the choices I choose to keep myself typically overwhelmingly busy! LOL
I guess I am the exception too. My wife is awesome and gives me more than I could ask for in every way (yeah, read into that if you want), in fact I am probably more of a burden to her than the other way around if anything. I honestly don't understand the misery people have in their marriage; I even like my inlaws too!
