Default New Toy

The desire to get back into a wagon got the best of me, and thus I've joined the hoards of RS members cruisin' the trails with on-board latte machines (although mine does not seem to have that option....).

Took a ride down to Santa Fe a couple weekends ago, and came home with some two-toned goodness. It's a 96 FZJ80, one owner New Mexico truck. 115,000 miles, lockers, and a few nicks and scratches.

While the PO didn't do much other than drive this around town, he was lax in tracking service and maintenance, so I'll start by baselining as much as I can and then start driving it.

Great stuff Matt. I think Colorado has to be one of if not the top one's holding 80 series in the US.

Schaweet! Just realized that even though we give the Matt's grief it's because we are jealous over their superior intellect. Every Matt in the club now owns an 80! Or at least has access to one! Congrats.....it's a beauty!
