Default Finally a good forcast!...

Finally got my 5 days in a row 70*+ weather in the forcast. Even if it does include a little rain.

Tops coming off this weekend.

Anyone else dropping the hard top around now?

Just curious.

It's snowing hard up here right now and we have 6 inches of slushy snow on the ground. I would be stoked for 5 days of warm weather. Might have to get the 40 out next week. I haven't driven it in 6 months!

I'm sure glad I put my hardtop back on for the return from Moab. We had to overnight in Glenwood because of the road closure at Vail pass (snow and 12 car accident) and now this! Snowing as hard as its raining at the Rockies game! About 9" so far...Driving the 40 to CBC in the AM! Yip..eee

I have always been the different one. The original Oriental Redneck. If my cousins were here in the US would of done it. So all is good. Besides i like to play on the bigger rocks and its not in the cards for the FJC. Now if i put the 80 axles under it with lockers and 35s, Doubler and gears. And it was paid off maybe.... but till then.... NOT!

Besides if it keeps the FJC from getting beat up then i will have a place to sleep at night. Keeping peace with

Are you aferade of it?..... Be aferade... real aferade....

Thought being japanese helped my cause here..... mmmm
