Mike, I might as well get started on the tool collection fetish for the 40, so if the three wrenches are still available, I'll take them.

Found the pics from when we brought her home.
Long story short... the weather was good but there were signs of snow. Thank GOD I bought new tires before the trip! We literally put new tires on the night before.
