    Hey guys, uhh...I'm baacckk!!

    I have been MIA for a couple of years, and just re-up'd my membership. For those of you that remember me..HI, for those that don't. I was here in the begining of this place..the very begining. I had a pretty extreme K5 Truggy up until 2 months ago.

    Yes, that's right...I sold it:what::what::what::doah::doah::mad::mad:.

    Bobbed, streched..atlass..klune..blah blah blah.

    It was the hardest thing for me to do, but it was done for the right reasons. I have a 18month old and we found out that my wife is pregnant with twins. I decided to man up and sell her to pay off all our taxes, debt, bills etc. I sold to a guy who "SAYS" he is going to wheel it, but I think, and hope, he rips it apart and uses the parts for his jeep. I think that was his plan.

    Anyways, I just got a 1990 Sub..2 wheel drive. I am gonna lft it a little and make it the wifes stay at home gofer vehicle. I plan to build another rig, a 5 seater that I am designing from the ground up. I hope to build something as capable, just not as heavy.

    Anyways, just wanted to say hi.

    Nash

    Hey, Nashu!!! I was just thinking about you last week- it's been awhile since I saw an entire reply in "bold"!!!!!:rotfl:

    For those of you who don't know Nash, he was one of the first guys here to go "extreme" with his rig. Nowadays it's pretty common, but there was a time when his rig was basically one-of-a-kind.

    Welcome back, brother......:bow:

    Thanks guys!!! I have to tell you, watching it go and delivering her was very very hard. I had 7 years into that build. It went from daily driver stock, to dailey on 38's and 1 tons and atlass...then exo cage and no doors...to extreme!!!!

    Yes, I sold the trailer, the tow rig and all. Thanks for the kind words.

    Congrats on the upcoming twins Nash!! :bow: :bow:

    Sorry to see the K5 go, it was definitely a bad-ass rig!! You'll build another one day though.

    Glad to see you back here! :waytogo:
