Default Farewell Meanie!

Meanie was a great rig but is now headed to a new home in Kansas City, MO! Time to move on to something else.

Probably a Rubicon X Unlimited, they just came out with that version for the 2014 MY. It's the 4 door version with all the std rubicon stuff but it has a different hood, higher clearance/angle steel bumpers. I can throw a winch on this rig, a 2" lift and some slightly larger tires/wheels for wheeling.

If Toyota had a legitimate equivalent I would consider it, but they really don't.

Thats a great rig!!

Now, who wants to take bets on how long it STAYS with 2" of lift and "slightly larger tires"....
