This was the first time I had ever been there. It was a crazy learning experience for me. I have never driven in anything like that. There's just something about climbing hills with a V8 at 4,000 RPM all day that made me smile. It gave me a whole new perspective on what it would take to have a good all around trail rig.

I don't think the sand will ever come out! I almost took my wife's stock XJ out there instead of the buggy, but she said she didn't want it full of sand.....damn am I glad I didn't do that.

If you need anything sandblasted, take it up with you when it is really windy. It will save you a lot of work. Although, if you don't want something sandblasted, eh, too bad.

It's pretty tempting....I've been drooling over that thing for a long time. If I somehow manage to roll it or severely damage it something like that may happen, otherwise it'll stay a mall crawler and I'll continue to build my Scrambler.
or if someone runs into the side of your box....

In all reality I'd probably just take the money from the insurance company and put it towards a Cummins. As cool as RamV's rig is, I'd still rather build my Jeep.
