I had ~2 weeks 700 trail miles planned for Death Valley that was cut short due to a failure on my travel partners rig.

Lost all the studs and two studs broke off but I had a couple new stud kits in my rarely seen repair parts to get it back to Scottsdale.

We were a little early with all the weather a lot of the good trails are still closed. Im going with everything happens for a reason and we plan to go back and finish in a couple weeks and hopefully all the trails will be open.

Did get to run Hole -in-the-wall

Brought home a new project truck for my second son to go with the other project truck for my first son. Some might recognize this one.

Also, picked up a new SnoMaster 56L dual zone fridge from EHO to replace my old ARB/Engel. The ARB still works great but I've wanted a dual zone for a while. Still deciding whether or not to keep the ARB or sell it. If you're interested in it, PM me and we'll chat. I could be talked into selling for a decent price.

One more thing that might interest some. Still need to complete my hoodscoop/vent project and have been looking for good vent candidates. The popular Pontiac GTP vents or Jeep Grand Cherokee vents are difficult to find. I found these ebay vents marketed for the Ford Focus RS MK2 that are similar in size to the GTP and Jeep vents. I like the low profile design of these. They won't stick up above the hood much but be more recessed. Still need to install them, but I actually ordered a set of different vents to try also so I'm waiting for those to show up and decide which I want to use.

I'm digging the stock height, stock wheels look set off just right with the ATs. Clean.
Thanks! its actually probably a bit less than stock since the springs are original from 94' and have put in their time. I'm looking at the Dobinsons 1.75" lift to bump it up a bit while still looking good with the 285/75/16's.

While I'm fully enjoying my OEM+ build (OME 2.5s, 35s, 4.88s, zero body mods), I wouldn't cry foul at all to revert back to full stock mode. Keep on truckin' dude! Miss the PNW green.

Also diggin' those retro OR plates. :D
