Glad you were able to thin the herd a bit. It's always sad, but there's always another cool vehicle in your future too.

One word, 'Simplify'. It seems odd at first but the memories are all you need. Wasn't it Hatfield who parted out the Nuclearlemon?

Sorry Ige... but congrats on the pickup John! and welcome. I drove that 40 once, even helped work on it once, has a lot of character, much like the PO.

Man, Root, my memory of it don't do justice to how ugly it was. You are one dedicated dude, you really are.

Yeah this is my 3rd 40. I think it will be my daily driver / wheeler for a while. I am building a Tacoma buggy that won't be done for my Rubicon trip in Aug so the 40 will probly get driven out there...

Mod list for now:
beadlocks & 38's
front locker install, cromo birfs, maybe hydo assist
Beard seats installed for tall people
Paint & a little trimming

It will be sweet

The Rubicon is a blast that 40 will do very well
