Came up on tickets for go fast and turn left on Sat for free and I've never been so gonna go check that out. I might still be able to do something on Sunday depending how well I use my evenings for chores this week.

Puck, would still be stoked to get you to swing by one evening this week or I can come get you, either way... I'll have the roses and champagne ready for you in the bathroom tub! LOL

nice.

my 1911 was looking pretty nasty after putting 700 rounds through it at the 4 day class at front sight this weekend.

Performed well though.




p.s. looks my woman is safe in a hostage situation....at least from 5 yards.



It kinds sucks, i was 1 shot away from "distinguished graduate" on the skills test (not the above target). Distinguished graduate is getting a 90% on the shooting test and malfunction drills. So damn close. Oh well, next time.

It's a wrangler sport. not rubicon, I'm just not that much of an off roader

I was thinking of something on the front to change the look of the bumper, push bar or brush guard, etc

My old Jeep drove like a Jeep, sounded like a Jeep, looked like a Jeep.... I feel like this isn't a Jeep it's too quiet and comfortable - after this weekend I'll put the soft top on and I hope some wind noise will make me feel more at home
Hey Smiiile!

I can appreciate some of your challenge- I'm a stodgy banker during the day and don't want to get too extreme.

I am exactly a foot taller than you- and I only wear skirts for YSB, but I might be able to help.

I have been on the fence with getting new wheels for my rubicon, they have 3500 miles on them. The wheels combined with spacers really toughen up the look and I don't think they add that much height to the jeep.

I also have a BB but Greg has first refusal on that- you might have to sweet talk them away from him.

I also have Rubicon springs and shocks- again, a little height and a better ride, we could get you looking like a tough rubicon JK for not too much $$.

Let me know if you want to talk about any/all!

If you want to be a little more jeep like, drop that cannon sized muffler and replace it with a magnaflow- I paid a mexican exhaust shop about 125 to do that. It's not loud- but it does sound more like my YJ.

I am heading up to Tahoe for the summer near the end of the month- so if you want to work through any/all- shoot me a message.
