Sand dune arch. Very very cool place

The little TJ that could. This little pile Has a 2.5 iron duke a 5 speed a locker in the front and a driver that wheels like he is too poor to pay attention. I have seen this little Jeep do some amazing shit. Don’t let hardware hold you back, driving is 95%

Another flat. At some point I thought I would take pics of each flat to keep track. After 9 I lost interest. This little scrub brush did help out on the repairs though.

This is not where we found the Lexus but just where I got the first pick. It drove to this spot and refused to make any more progress. Not bad. For a Lexus.

Pic with the Lexus. Lol. note the mountain bikes in the back. I imagine the bikes were worth more than the bronco. They weighed maybe three pounds with the wheels.

Some random stuff. There petrified sand dunes there that I absolutely love. So fun to bebop around on the hard pack and big cracks.

Glad I could help you get better at fixing tires. Now, if you would have a spare tire on the back, you would never have needed it.


Looks like you had an awesome time. Now you to need to build a couple more rigs so all your daughters have their own.

Thanks for the update.

All my travels out in the west, I have never made it there, but I do not have the rig for it either. I can see it can be an expensive hobby.

I don’t have room for a 180 pound wheel and tire. Much less a way to load or unload it.

There are plenty of “trails” you can do in a stocker. We took the wife’s ram a couple days. Very beautiful place worth the visit

Its ok to look at, its great for some people. I like the haul rig and if I was gonna build one might start with cooler trailer, insulated, put big saddles on it for waste, water and LP, genset under it.
All that stuff, the trucks, motorcycles, boats, snowmobiles are fun for an after noon, I ride like a nut once and have my fill and working on that shit gets old fast.
Same for rust repair,,, I aint gonna retire to rebuild rusty cars. I woulnt have any of this if I didnt need it. If I worked a real job it wou;ld be 1 simple car, a tool belt, a bed, tv and fridge and maybe not even that would find some comfy kitten to crawl in with that loves to cook and make lunch, even better if she got 50 and 100's hanging out of her pockets.
I aint fixing 91 tires for a hobby.
