The major optional obstacles will favor the 80's wheelbase (although we're gonna be wishing we had more than OME to try some of those lines). Some of the tight trail sections between obstacles will favor the 40 in a big (well, small) way.

Old Chinaman's is pretty rocky throughout...2.5 hours each way and 6 hours on the trail and your backside will appreciate the 80 for sure

no bill, just your lack of diversity.

The sills on the rr classic where that way from the factory. The sliders are actually sitting right on the chassis. That's the original body stilling in that gap. According to LR, that line was done to help break up the boxiness of the body.

How's it looking Mike? do you need me to come by tonight and help get her back together with my *superior fabrication skills?






*"superior fabrication skills" is a relative term, in this case, based on ability to drink beer, run grinder, and give b.s. advice.

I'll be in the driveway and I can always use the help. I have to work tonight so I'll probably get some sleep as soon as the sun starts to go down. I'm off to wheel the compost pile Nutley is right, I need to check the clearance before I weld it up.

Does anyone have an extra seat? My moms wants to go Saturday and my friend Ian is going already. I am going to trailer the 40 down there so plenty of room in the Tahoe but, only 1 extra seat in the 40.

I'll be in the 80 so sure. Daughter # 2 is considering it and Brendan Lally might go down with me also but hey its a wagon...plenty of room for more!

We'll also be hauling a couple of Toyota execs. They don't want to hog the seats in the FJs (those are for us).

I told Brandon that we'd have plenty of empty seats.

I'm bringing the 40.
