Does that mean the Bronco is not happening now?
It's still on order, but with all of their issues, who knows when it might arrive.  I've also realized, it's not going to be a good rock crawler, which is what I like to do when offroading.  Its good for sand and dirt, but IFS does not articulate.


Next thing you know you will be buying a used Sky.
Im keeping the Alfa Romeo.

Nice score Elff! Looks to be in really decent shape for a jeep of that age.

At least the carbon bodywork won't rust through.  My one-time pride & joy, an AlfaSud Sprint Veloce, rusted through the sills within 2 years from new :(

Elff how's the new to you Jeep?  How are Reed and Shiny doing?

Had my Jeep out this weekend, technically I stayed on the road but Illinois roads are pretty much trails given the way they maintain them.

We had a blast 4wheeling last weekend.  Both are doing very well.
Shiny is trying to book me every weekend to go 4wheeling.  She is addicted.   
I need some time to button up some things on the jeep and get it inspected.     

Today I installed new 315/75r16 tires and put in the rebuilt front shocks.   It really tightened up the street handling and going down 1 tire size will significantly preserve my drivetrain.
Also removed the hard top and cleaned up the interior in preparation for all new floor carpets, mats and a cool soft top/tonneau combination.

Anyone good with photoshop?  They could put a full size Elff on the hood and make it look like he's playing basketball.

Im gonna try to avoid that with this one.

At the moment I have 2 things to address before I really go hard core rock crawling.
Rear locker isn't working. Not sure why yet, but will figure it out.  I think it's the air line.
Rear Flex brake line is not tied to the frame and might not be long enough.  It's just waiting to be ripped off.
Easy fix and will order spares because they are good to have.

Where are the hooks for the rope ladder?

I use a portable trampoline. Rope ladders are so 2017
:lol:

My Jeep would cause global warming if we drove it out your way.

Speaking of climate problems those forest fires out your way are causing us to have hazy days for about the last week.  Damn Californians must not care about the environment outside of their state!  I wish they would get done making smores and put their fires out already.  It's kind of hot out right now why do they think they need a fire anyway?

^^ Yeah.  Plus those d*mn San Diego zoo-keepers are passing covid onto their cats!  If only we knew one of them we could blame...

If they would just leave those monkey's alone

Nice score Elff! Looks to be in really decent shape for a jeep of that age.
Thanks, It's even better now.  I cleaned up the frame rails, painted them with some rust paint, repainted the gas skid and repainted the diamond plate under the doors.   This week, the wife is going to do a major paint correction.  The paint has some nice flake in it, but it's all oxidized.  It should really look nice after that.  I have to move the flex part of the rear brake line, and that is the last thing it needs to be off road safe.

With how well Jeeps hold their value, plus the fact that the used car market is out of control, you will have a hard time finding a good deal right now

I think you could say that about any vehicle at the moment.  I have been looking at used trucks and what you used to pay for something with 100k on the clock will have 250-300k
