Depending on weather I may run the bikini top. Or just keep trashing my good top.

I talked to Dale this morning. Like Mike said, he needs to finish the exhaust & then do all the wiring/computer junk. I think he will be ready but I don't know if he will be sportin his new snow shoes.

Great news Nick!

Get us a 2 place and I will pull it up I get roughly the same mileage pulling 1 or 2 so it shouldn't cost you anymore then driving the explorer.

I picked up stuff today to make a different top for the Toyota. It's going to be more like a tonneau cover so maybe I will not do as much damage as I have done at the mounds the last 2 time I've wheeled with you.

Bigger issue is the buggy is a two seater, while explorer is a four.


I could really use barfari right now.
