    FJ Summit is in July. Registration opens soon. Or let Bob and I know when you are coming out. We will try to get something figured out.

    Won't be till next year and would rather not do the big event like the FJ Summit. Would like to hit quite a few trails (have a list somewhere) and hike a 14'er.

    Working on moving the rear plate up to the top of the tire gate above the Jerry can mounts. I'm going to use a LED strip to illuminate it.

    Welding gurus... Any suggestions? Wire feed too fast? I can get decent looking beads every once and a while but more often than not I get these giant boogers.

    This should do, no more moving it when I wheel or tow. Just need to wire it and solder together a light strip.
