    Hello all

    Just wanted to introduce myself and my rig. My name is Len Sullivan, and I live in Phoenix, AZ. I was "introduced" to your group by Mike Pawlowski (Marboro), another Phoenix member. According to him, y'all are a bunch of really cool, laid back, informative people.......and best of all, he says that you're "brand tolerant." That's really cool, 'cuz I don't drive a Blazer. I drive a Jeep.

    Before anybody tells me that there are forums that are more directly suited to my vehicle, let me 'splain why your're group interests me: I don't drive a TJ (Trendy Jeep), or a YJ (Yuppie Jeep), or a CJ (Costly Jeep). I drive a full size Jeep pickup...a '78 J-10 to be exact.

    My rig is set up with a Chevrolet 350 V8, a TH350 transmission, NP208 transfer case, full floating 8 lug Dana 60 in the rear, 8 lug Dana 44HD in the front, 3 inches of suspension lift, 3.73 gears, and 33x12.5x15 BFG Mud Terrain tires. So.......the Jeep forums (I regularly post in 3 of them) are great if I have questions/comments about my windshield wipers or heater controls, but when it comes to drivetrain and suspension I have more in common with you.

    If anyone is curious about what my rig looks like and what I do with it, you can visit my photopoint site at:
    http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumList?u=41056&Auth=false

    I don't have any pics of the truck with the new 33" tires and the "custom" (read that: sawzall) fenders, but they'll be up soon. I also don't have many pics up from last years trail runs 'cuz I was too busy driving to take pictures....I'm sure you all know how it goes.

    Anyway, that's me and my rig.

    be good........

    Len

    Welcome aboard! Many folks here have multiple rigs. So your insight in a value added. Is that a Jevy then?

    I suppose we could call it a Jeepolet or a Jeevy, but Cheep seems to fit it best......my local club recently had a discussion about how much they've spent on their rigs. Average seemed to be between 15 and 20k -- the 33" tires and Powertrax No-Slip I just bought finally pushed me over the $3000 mark.
