Hi everyone! Its Derek, i'm back! lol I been missing in action for a few years now, but now i'm back. I got a new rig. However its not an X, I tried to get one but I had no luck. I did have a 1976 FJ40 that I had for a while but it wasn't reliable on the road nevermind the trails. I'm currently in a 2003 Jeep Wrangler that's modified. I did a few things to it and now its ready.

I didn't want to join a jeep group cause I feel like there all mean to each other. In the past I've had great experiences here and wish to continue them with great people. Once I remember how to post pics of my rig I will..

Hope all is well

Good to see you again, Derek!

I remember that year. It was my first ECXC. Many things happened - "Wendy", log on a log, the crazy guy on the bike.

I still have a copy of the video of that challenge.

Then i had to modify my rear bumper and created a swing arm for it.

I still kept most of my stuff from the X

including hi-lift and winch that i won at Scott's house.. ( never sold it or got rid of it ) I didn't want it to be like that one guy that got a cold air intake and sold it.. i forget his name..

Still have a few things i need to do but its ready..
