Hi everyone!! Long time no see. I wanted to jump on and say it’s great to see we are meeting back in person. I guess I can come out of my cave of family life and come to a club meeting now? Looking forward to seeing everyone again. A little update from me, we had our second kiddo during the pandemic and nobody told me going from one to two kids was such a big jump. Now when one of us wants a break, the other one is out numbered. silly

I sold my JK back in June last year. It was a sad day, but the right thing to do at the time. My wife lost her job and with our second kid, we made the best decision we could. I was sad about it and kept it quiet until Kris found out. Kris threatened to kick me out of the club because I wasn’t meeting club requirements, so I began my search for the next rig.confused

Well, I can finally say the hunt is over and I am back in a vehicle with a transfer case meeting the club requirements. I went back to my roots. When I first joined the club back in 2010ish, I had a 2006 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited. Well, I am now the proud owner of a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. It feels great to be back in a jeep. It has a small lift and 33s. I will slowly morph it into something exciting to keep up with the big dawgs over the next few years.

With that being said, I’m glad to be back and can’t wait to hit the trails with little ones in tow.

Um...what?

Glad things are going well for you, Greg.

It’ll be nice to have you back.

I used to wheel a lot. . .

Awesome Greg! Nice, clean Rubicon unlimited. Looking forward to seeing you again at our meetings. For those of you who are new to the club and don’t know the Bakken brothers, Jeff and Greg were a huge part of our club and served as officers for several years. They also hosted a very popular 4X4 podcast called High Sierra 4X4 podcast. http://www.highsierra4x4.com/crew/ Welcome back Greg!

Leading with threats is a great leadership style, glad it worked.

 

I should have a set front radius arms available here pretty quick.  Well used RE arms as I bought a set of metalcloak arms.  

 

The blue LJ pictured appears to have a small wheelbase stretch.  Just going to move the tank and cross members back so you can still smog or go with a genright stretch tank and register in a smog free zip?

Some of those decisions are very difficult, but family comes first. I’m glad to see you back in action. I look forward to seeing you at the meetings and on the trails!

It will be great to see you guys.

If I can't build it, then it's something that should be bought.

It has a small stretch. I actually do not plan to stretch mine. We will see though.

 

It’s great to be back in a jeep again and I can’t wait to see everyone.
