Welcome to my little corner of the web. If you're here for the first time you're probably looking for my "world famous" (heh heh) gear calculators. The links are over to the left, enjoy.

Who out there has been visiting this site since the 90's? Back when I lived in Colorado, back when I was wheeling a full size Chevy Suburban? Who of you has visited this site year after year and have seen little change? That is about to change, at least for the next month or so. It's May 2015 and I just bought a 2008 JK salvage title 2-dr for my daughter's HS graduation gift. I hope to show you all pictures of what I plan on getting done. What I'd like to do is put a 6 inch lift with huge axles and lockers. But, I really want this to be a safe daily driver first, so I'm gonna have to keep the altitude a little closer to the pavement. I haven't totally decided on a "look" but I'm thinking a flat fender look, steel bumpers, a couple body mods, lighting and audio to name a few things. So far I like the yellow, but don't be surprised if I change the color before it's all said and done.

First step, do the body work. Here is her after pic...

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ with 5 inch lift What is better than a Jeep? How about two jeeps! As you know I've been driving a '94 Jeep ZJ for years. In 2006 we traded my wifes '03 Yukon XL in on a new smaller '06 Jeep Commander (XK). It has become the new jeep daily driver (My daily driver is an '07 Dodge Ram)

In 2005 we bought a Maaco Collision Repair and Auto Painting center. Besides being a small business owner with all the headaches, there is one benefit... I OWN A BODYSHOP! :-) So I cut and trimmed the wheel openings and painted it to match the Commander. New paint deserved new tires and wheels, oh and a decent lift too... I chose the Rubicon Express 3.5 inch lift.

However, a bodyshop can't provide me with accessories for all my mods and plans and I had to look elsewhere. Fortunately, I found CARiD! Here I was able to find everything needed for my Jeep.

3.17.2005 - Finally, I'm on my way back to Moab. It's been a long time and I'm excited to try out my Jeep Grand Cherokee on the trail. Look for me on Hell's Revenge Tuesday, Gold Bar Rim Wednesday, and Metal Masher on Thursday.

I had big plans for the ol ZJ before hitting the trails but that thing called LIFE kept me from installed a cool long arm lift and 33's. Oh well, maybe next time. It's my daily driver so wish me luck that it'll make the long drive back to Texas in one piece!

Past Trails:
Dean on Hells Revenge. 4+ Moab Rim in my 'Burban
3½ Steel Bender in my 'Burban
Wipe Out Hill, Potato Salad Hill, etc.

Come one, come all (4x4r's that is)... I used to have a pretty good list of 4x4 related links to websites. Unfortunately a lot of those have become dead links over the years. Websites come and websites go.

If you have a favorite 4x4 website or run a 4x4 website use my Link Submit form. Provide me with a URL and short description of what it is and I'll get it posted post-skosh. Here is the list in progress: Reader's Links
