    Yeah this sellers agent is a twat. I have my friend seeing what's up. It's been up for a good while now. I'll keep looking in mean time. I've never used an agent. Just easier for me to work a little if they don't have to pay another agent in my side.

    Pole Hill is pretty easy though I haven't done it in probably 4 or 5 years and trails here can change a lot. I'd worry about stock step bars though. Doesn't take much to mash them.

    A reasonable agent will cut the commission leaving the seller more room to deal with you. I've had more than a couple refuse to entertain that idea at all though. Some get very angry.
    What makes me angry though is when they say stupid things like "what do you care? The seller pays the commissions.”
    At that point, I figure they either think I'm an idiot or they are an idiot.

    A 7% commission on a $500k transaction is $35k :eek:
    Should be able to offer the sellers $17.5k less and have them put the same amount in their pockets when you come to the table without a buyer's agent.

    They aren't stock, but I'm thinking of pulling them off. Only takes a few minutes.The step bars are the only adder that I've put on. The rest of the truck is stock though. That's exactly what I was thinking, I didn't want them to get "mashed" rolling through some of the rocks. From the videos I've seen most of the trail looks worry free, but there are a few spots where the step bars may get hit.

    Yup there are. If they don't attach to the frame I'd also pull them. Mine attach to the body so they are coming off if I ever do anything more than fire roads.

    Chop chop chop. Still a lot to do. No more goodies until it’s done.

    That would kinda get in the way of watching football Saturday. But, consider a virtual beer passed your way. And to keep the snobs happy, since its virtual, it can be any flavor you like. :cheers:

    For 1st genners looking for a cheap but really good sunshade:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074DLQ2YM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_bF-yDbWWKXVPB

    I’ve always preferred the round style that you fold in quarters can the ones you fold accordion style. Much easier to stash away.

    This one performs just as well as the ones that cost 4x. It is about 1”’too wide but yuh can easily manipulate it so that it fits near perfectly.

    I have no nostalgia for 80s crapwagons. Especially when its only redeeming quality is that it didn't rust into oblivion.

    While that isn't my cup of tea. I do love me a FSJ. Ive always wanted a waggy with a 8.1/6l80, 05+ SD axles and 37-40's. Perfect Colorado cruiser.

    Looks like Dish will have a few sites set up so we don't miss the game day action. :oldglory:

    Looking at the lineup, you could probably just prop a chair up in front of one of those tents all weekend and not miss too much of anything good going on on the stages.

    I've been watching this BII deteriorate just sitting in the yard across Left Hand Creek. This street view photo from pre-flood (2012) makes me feel like this it was last driven back then.

    OK, disregard previous comment Jason already covered it.

    Might want to get an agent, probably thinks you aren't that interested or able to buy otherwise.
