Here are some of my favs from the museum.... but really, most of the trucks are freakin' awesome. They have Land cruiser #1 in North America (not the fj25 in the pic, but one just like it), a mega cruiser (a nice one), a couple troopies, couple fj55s, a 45LV, tons of 70 series, and a lot more.

First day in Moab I ran into the hardware store for some nuts and bolts to finish putting my roll bar together and ran into Stan Prueitt (from TTC) and saw his new rig. 6x6 jeep.

And if you didn't know already, there is a large, annual car show in moab. We checked it out and here are some of the ones I liked. Once again, there were many cool cars/rigs that I can't post all of!

Me crossing it the wrong way as well (was a little tougher this way than the "right" way)

Started digging into the Sammy again yesterday. Broke the traction bar right off at some point.... one brake on rear was completely gone.... no material left....leaky front pinion seal, changed the T case mount and upgraded to heavy duty spring on range Detent rails. Also swapped tires from swampers to Ag tires for this weekends Fisher East trail run....
