It got cold at 11,000ft!!!!

Took the Orion/SM465 equipped FJ on it's maiden voyage. Nothing core or anything but....low gears are so nice. The first pic you can see the storm moving in. We drove into it and it was just a bit cold with an open top. Good times!!



Weather moved in quick...very quick

Mike, I really dig your truck. Capable and still close to what Toyota imagined.

Where exactly is that?

Tires are 37 12.5 MTRs with High Impact beadlocks.

Send over all the snow you have. I want to actually have a winter this year.

I can tell you it does drive, drove it myself! and it was mikes day off, so it is possible that it may not be a chop. But you shouldn't underestimate mikes dedication to web wheeling

Life is good. Yea I got the RDB done, worked like a champ! Thanks!

Parental life is good, totally eats into my wrenching time. And it ain't gonna get any better - numero dos is due 11/21. Damn, I'm thinking of just throwing it all on a trailer and hauling it to Jeremiah to finish for me!!

Congrats on the upcoming b'day. I don't think they allow alcohol in UT!!
