Here's my new rear system :D should work well with the new 60" tires I've got coming ;)

Yeah, but can it wheel when loaded with camping gear??? :p :cool:
 






I am guessing that vehicle has no cargo area :) hahaha
 






So I finally got around to taking pics of my post-rubicon rig a few weeks ago, and am just now posting them here :eek:

About 5 minutes after taking the pics I had fixed the passenger door; poped off the inner panel, cut out all my sound deadening to get to the skin, gave it a push, and just like the saturn commercial it popped right back out. :D After that I worked on the drivers door. All thats left to 'fix' is the driver side fender and rear quarter panel (for the 3rd time :rolleyes: )
 






Egads! you took some significant damage... All in fun though;)
 






that's sexy
 






Matt and I were admiring that damage when we saw you parked at the offroad expo last weekend. It just makes your rig look that much more serious! :D
 






Good think you had sliders
 






Wow :)
The marks keep growing on both sides! hahaha
 












Wow. I think I would cry if my truck got that damage. Impressive. :thumbsup: :eek:
 






Not Jefe, this is a purpose built rig.
I remember when he got his first scuff mark on the d side in Truckhaven, its all down hill for the factory metal from there :)

That's debatable - one was bent DOWN.
 






Cool :thumbsup: It's starting to look like my truck now :p
 












Guess I should post a few of my pictures we took on the trip.

First one is Positive Vibes coming through the gatekeeper
Second pic is thunderhorse in gatekeeper
Third pic is thunderhorses not quite right steering angles
