    Not selling the Willyís but will be selling Sawyers 2000 BMW 328!

    Chris, definitely wanna run Pennsylvania Gulch soon!

    Already have 3 puppies so donít need another

    Wish I could join Chinaman but we have a few employees in town for a team build this week so canít make it ;-(

    Just got home from Colo Springs, where I bought the Rubi..... havenít been able to take any pix yet but hereís the craigslist ad with a few pix and description! Poison Ivy body armor was an auto-correct typo for Poison Spyder fenders and body armor. It also has a full roll cage built that wasnít mentioned in the ad, BONUS! He also tossed in an aftermarket exhaust headers and a new clutch and a few other odds and ends! Basically it has all the mods I wished my Ď04 has and itís lifted even higher and on bigger tires!!!!

    Itís also got all the skid plates underneath, a Warn m8000 with synthetic rope, rear bumper tire carrier and hi-lift jack (which I already removed and will probably get rid of). Canít wait to take this beast off road!

    Thanks y'all.... I'm pretty stoked about my new toy and my son is VERY stoked about his new Jeep! It's pretty cool to have a couple of bad ass Rubicons wheeling together ;-)

    Lesson for you younger folks..... work hard and some day it'll pay off so you can have the toys you want (and your kids can have them too) ;-)
