    How the hell do you know Julia, first of all?

    Second of all...I don't take trails that are technical or too fast in fear of breaking my only mode of transportation. I play it safe where I can, but I really would like to beef up the suspension to safely take the faster, more technical stuff like blasting through whoops or crawling rocks. Another reason is because I wheel with some 2WD guys with minimal mods, so I go places that they can safely make it.

    Basically, I want an all around rig. Something that will keep with the rock crawler guys (after locking front and rear, of course), and then something that can chase the prerunner's the same day. Sort of a middle ground with the best of both worlds.

    The stickers were getting old, and I was getting tired of people literally almost crashing into me on the 405 because they're trying to take a picture of them while driving next to me. And because I now work at Rebel and the new decals are supporting the business.

    No, haven't gotten stuck. But again, I don't do things that get me into situations where I can get stuck. So that solves that.

    And for that legitimate response...I wont hold my breath. I think I may have said "hello" to you once, and shook your hand at Trophy Truck Tuesday, but other than that, idk who the hell you are nor do I really care because you seem to be okay with constantly disrespecting people you don't even know. Whatever...not gonna make this any more dramatic than it already is, cuz I'll probably be called "an OC ***" or something lol

    Tom, I can take a joke. But lighten up, dude. It's not funny when it's every day.

    EDIT: since when does TW censor words? :confused:

    Well yes, I don't do technical with the way my truck is right now. For instance, I wouldn't want to do Miller with the way my truck is now because I'll probably break something under the truck going around an obstacle I know I wont make. But with lockers come more confidence in the rig, and more confidence in myself to take more technical lines. Does that make sense?

    ANYWAYS. I actually like most the people in this thread, and contrary to our conversations on here, we actually get along when we're around each other in person. Which is why I post in this thread in the first place. But seriously, I'm saying this as a fellow TW member and a friend, the constant bashing is really getting old. I'd hate to stop following this thread and you guys because I really am interested with what's goin on day to day and how I can help with something, and the updates on everyone's rigs. But lately every time I post, somebody comes in here bashing me for one reason or another.

    Now that I'm working at Rebel, I can actually get you guys some great deals on parts we buy all the time! And I wanna help in any way I can, so don't make me out to be this guy who's always getting bashed for having zombie stickers for 4 months :confused:

    Just throwing it out there for you to read. I already put it behind me. :cheers:

    You're right, but I'm definitely going to have armor on the truck before doing any of that. Sliders are arriving at the shop from powder coat tomorrow, and All Pro skids will be ordered soon. And with either kit I mentioned, the LCA's will be protected with either skids or the TC plated LCA's. Demello 3 hoop is in the works, and still deciding on which rear bumper I want, either high clearance or regular CBI or another fab company, must have rear spare mount.

    And yeah, guess I'll just have to get out there and see it for myself. I'll be at Big Bear Forest Fest next month working the vendor booth, and I'm signed up for some trails up there. Gonna sit shotgun in a Rebelcon JK on John Bull so that'll be some good exposure.
