Yep, sort of like two states in one-just draw a line from Red Lodge to Browning, although there are some real mountains east of that line-ie, the Little Rockies, Bear Paws, Snowy's for a few. I spent a lot of time working on projects around Colstrip and Decker and there are some nice local areas in eastern Montana, but generally not my cup of tea either. But-if you want to really get away from people and like world class gumbo mud----

I found "Dorothy" in a sea of old cars, boats, & trailers behind a guys house. Bought her, got her home, washed & waxed, started some mechanical TLC.

in a way, this thread is sad, because I dont have the money or locations to save some of these jeeps.

but with 90% of them, i see possibilities.

Been following your thread, but don't recall seeing this pic!

Thanks for sharing, and that was one great find/save!
