I'll confess. I bought a '99 locked the day before the Rally. I got lost at Discount Tire about 10 minutes after I drove it out of the seller's driveway. Somehow some 285/75r16 Duratracs ended up on there. Conveniently, my brother now works at Slee. The downside to that is that I've seen ALL SORTS OF GOODIES that I MUST now own. It will be my DD/long range mobile. The 40 will still see a LOT of trail time, and I love driving it around town.

The 100 will be getting the Slee 2.5" heavy kit, and I'll stick with the 285/75's for a bit. Front locker, bumpers, winch, skids, roof rack/RTT are already on the short list. Drawers at some point, but I'm trying to decide on some nice wood ones, or $8,000,000,000 metal ones.

(P.S. The gold trim is already gone. I couldn't stand it.)

Red Taco is my brother's, and the Gold Taco is my dad's (along with the '72 K5 that I grew up in).

Default rare indeed!

ahh yes...the elusive white 100 series. Glad you guys got to at least see a picture of one.

However...not an 01, and still an LX

Are you replacing the 60? Or will this become your DD in addition to the toys?

Looks clean. Also looks like I see the flaps for the LATCH system in the second row, but hard to tell from that pic. That would indicate 01 or newer. Pic of the dash to make my final guess?

Default bye, bye Subaru

the 60 ain't goin' anywhere. The Turbo Subaru will be going to some loving family someday. The LX will be the DD - and I'll see more RTD Bus time for the commute to LoDo.

And yes....of the 04-07 variety...I just scheduled delivery for wednesday. I'll post real pics in a bit.
