    No, its east of 75 off bonita beach rd. But with all them paper trees it shor nuf looks the same? I'm sure that Jeep will be something. What are you gonna do to it? I'll assume a lift up and not down right? Man just wait till you see this kick ass Blazer I'm geting ready to buy. I'll post it when it gets here.

    This is my first posting of a picture. It took me forever to teach my self how to create a webpage to do it. I hope I did it right.

    Shoot, it did'nt work. I think the file was too big. I'll try again later.

    Former Florida Cracker here. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Grew up in Ft. Pierce, just a little north of Palm Beach. Went to school in Tampa and lived in Melborne for a few months. But the grass was greener elsewhere, so away I went! Moved away in '79 and have only been back for family visits since then. The family moved to Austin, Texas so now I suppose that I'll only be going to Florida to take my kids to see Mickey (and empty my wallet!). /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    My first wheelin' rig there was a '71 Jeep Wagoneer. Didn't know much about what I was doing, but I sure had fun with it! I did grow tired of picking swamp vegetation from the underside of it though... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif That stuff would be clinging to every part of the suspension after a day in the mud. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Man, I'm gettin good at this pic post thing. Check out this Blazer I think I might buy. I've realized it costs to dang much to build one like this myself even though its always cooler to build it yourself. I wouldn't rightly know exactly how anyway. Heck this Blazer won't be cheap either if I get it. What do you think?

    Wow, not many Florida Crackers are members anymore. Welcome aboard, you'll find alot of entertainment region here in the SE section and quite a few wheeling trips going on throughout the year, although you might have to make a good drive from Florida to get any good trails
