paul i hate to say this..but joes rig is one of the best working full bodied jeeps out there. and he is one hell of a good wrench. (yes there goes joes head growing again)
that being said. yes he should still give it to his women and build a buggy.

I don't think there was enough sheet metal left on this TJ to really be much different in the protection from the elements department, was there?

Its kinda odd. Usually when a vehicle goes to the scrap yard with 8000 miles on it its because its been in a horrific accident.

I don't think they make a hat big enough for his head as it is we can't have it getting bigger

I like the buggies. But I also like to drive my rigs. if I built a buggy and I will have one for myself some day. But it will have to be able to drive in the summer on the roads some how that is just part of the fun.

Erin I'm sure you will test out the limits of your new buggy and I will be there to watch the action.

This quote just makes me want to build a full body jeep more and if it can walk all over a full on buggy as you call it. I will still put the top up turn my a/c on and take the family on a camping trip after I win. ;)

But first my yota truggy needs more power.

This will be a great year. I'm pumped to see some of the new rigs coming out. And to instigate Erin to get nuts in his new buggy.

I suspect when Erin gets his buggy done he will just stand around and do poser shots.
