Let's see pictures of your 4x4!
« on: June 17, 2012, 05:08:24 PM »
Let's have a thread for everybody to show off their 4x4 ride.  It doesn't have to be modified or a mud/rock rig, but let's see what you have!

Okay - I'll start  ;).

Not the best shot of our truck.  We were getting towed out of one of the 48 washes in Canyon de Chelly by Frank and Barb W. in 2007.  We did leave a few truck parts in the canyon that day.  Don't ask why the bike is on the back :(

A little mountain biking?  Oops, I wasn't supposed to ask about the bike  ;D.

Nice looking Jeep Tom and beautiful country!  The stock Moab wheels are really, really good - I would air down my tires to 10 psi and never slipped a bead.

I know the real 4 wheelers won't think much of mine, but I'll show you what I have now and use versus what I used to have.  The Lexus is a lot more comfortable, but won't go where the Montero did.

Here are a few Action shots of our Jeep. 2003 Rubicon. Bought it over an email correspondance with a  neighbor.  Had never sat in it, or driven it and now we love it.

One of the photos shows what happens when  you get off the line.

Our first off-road experience was in my brother-in-law's Lexus LX-470 in the San Juan mountains - that was running trails in luxury!

I wonder where Terry will be sleeping tonight?

I like Betty's :)  It probably cost a lot less than Terry's, too.

Hi,
We also bought sight unseen and had the mods made before we saw it (except for a Teraflex 2.5-inch lift).

Ernie - that's the color I was looking for when Rubicon shopping - I love the yellow (and easy to see on the trail) :P!  I was having a difficult time finding an automatic 2005/6 Unlimited (the LJ) Rubicon, so color took on a secondary attribute.

Here's mine.  A bit more special purpose than your Jeeps, but then she gets me to the coast in comfort too.

Nice surf fishing rig Lou!

Here is a photo of my 4x4 ride. Sure I get some splinters but I get great gas mileage.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

One pic of our Avi clearing the driveway but notice there is no plow, we don't use conventional methods in our household  ;D . We just spin around and drive up and down until a path is cleared for other vehicles...it's fun and free (except for the gas) and the good time doing it.....priceless.
 
The other pic is the poor Avi preparing for a "for sale" sign to be put on. We can't tow them both fulltiming and towing a 3/4 ton truck just seems a little silly so the Vue goes with us and the Avi finds a home that will hopefully appreciate such an awesome truck! We did have good times with it since 05 though.
