    Agree with that part 100%. Unless it's given to me, then it's getting a real drivetrain and chopped to the ground

    Actually I'd say the movie is the reason it isn't a complete failure today, no one would give a crap about it otherwise. The company folded before the movie came out.

    Then again, I do want one. Not a painted one though.

    I'll own one some day, still my dream car.

    Why don't you just buy the proper transfer case?

    Yours is a top shift and the one you're looking at is a forward shift?

    Front aftermarket lights aren't even wired up; apparently it's been that way for months. Not to mention an unused smitty bilt winch.

    The backward facing Hella light on my roof rack hasn't been wired up for months either lol :rofl: Just never got around to it...I should probably just take it off haha.

    In my defense the wiring for it is there, but I used it for the front facing LEDs and haven't put another harness in for the Hella

    Shipping isn't that expensive. Call Rancho Toyota Truck Parts in Rancho Cordova, CA - one of the biggest Toyota truck scrappers in the country. I've been there once, it's impressive. They shipped me an entire rear axle for $40. Another one is ToyAuto Mart.

    I'm probably going to ditch it for an amber rear facing light instead, it'll serve more of a purpose for keeping me visible on dusty trails to those behind me. Getting rear ended in a cloud of dust wouldn't be fun

    Good point!

    Speaking of, at some point I'd like to add to the thread, what rules and etiquette we all expect from one another. I'm sure that won't be an issue since we're all adults but it'll set the bar for what we all should expect especially if anyone's going to bring loved ones.

    I've initiated and lead meets in the past(other forums) but this will be different as I have limited off roading experience. Much less any crawling or anything technical.
