I need to get out wheeling. The TJ needs a drivers-side rear axle seal installed, the seep is getting worse. Work has been keeping me busier than I care to be, and I won't likely get a break until summer.

Actually that shelf road on South Park is not that bad(good?), I will admit I was sweating a bit when I got to the top. I had run that trail many times but this was only the second time in a rig with doors so it was a little more intense(I prefer no doors). The spot that really gets you is the turn up the ledge at the top.



Same guy in his XJ in 2011, a week before the trail was closed...



Coming down in 2009...



From the driver's seat in my XJ...



Anyway, super fun trail with lots of history and lots to see.
These really are very fantastic pictures :)

You can't just tease us with a single picture...we need the full run down and story of the jeep.

I am typing the Build Sheet... it was a bare frame build. Cost exceeded $120,000.00.

John, I think that work of art deserves it's own thread. I kindly request that you start a thread so we all can enjoy seeing how it was put together and drool!

Thank you for your kindness. This project was a blessing during the Lockdown.

I purchased the LJ in February, Nevada locked down on March 17th, the LJ was dropped off on May 3rd, my wife was diagnosed with cancer on June 29th, Susan's final Chemo Therapy is on October 20th, God willing.

The good news is that Susan's blood work is better than we could have hoped for at this point. In a couple of months, again, God willing, we'll be back out wheeling.

The LJ has been a needed distraction.

There are a ton of options in this build.

I spared no expense. Everything possible is made in the USA.

Barbara and I are sorry to hear of Susan’s diagnosis and wish her a speedy recovery. We are both cancer survivors, so please know a normal life is possible once this is dealt with.

We miss the FMCA outings, but it was getting to be tough to attend from Florida.

All the best to you both.

Ditto for Susan's full recovery, health problems with a loved one is a huge disruption. You would think that after 50+ ears of research and billions and billions of dollars spent we would be further ahead combating the disease.
