    Here’s my old (first) jeep, 93 Grand Cherokee 4l auto not bad for $500. then went in the BDS 3″ lift, 32″ SS TSL’s. It was also my sleeping accomodations over the winter when ‘camping’.
    anyone guess where this pic was taken?



    Sadly a tree put an end to it 🙁

    Heres my *new* 95 Jeep grand cherokee 5.2l (318) auto. another $500 score!!!!! swaped in the lift and tires and she was good to go!


    play time 😀

    Out side of wheeling, I also enjoy the finer aspects of driving. On the left is my 91 Dodge Stealth RT/TT and on the right is my 87 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z

    my 87 shelby z =2.2l T2 ported head, intake, exhaust, 90 a523 w/3.50FD and LSD, FMIC, MBC, 3″ exhaust, 57trim T3/T4, 5 puck clutch, 22″ slicks/225-50-15 DR’s (depending on track), and N2O


    N2O purg onto the intercooler

    the stealth…. Stock other then a MBC, full 3″ exhaust and KYB GR2’s.
    the AWD is nice 😀


    also got a 90 Daytona Shelby VNT

    And last is my boat.

    Heh, I was parked down the row from you in the Green Beast, chains and everything…

    …which is now for sale. The replacement doesn’t have quite the same sleeping space, but it’ll get to many more places, like summer shred zones.

    That was Pontus

    Here’s my 3 engines……

    The diesel rig that gets me anywhere I need carrying whatever I need (06 Cummins RAM 2500):

    the track/street bike (01 RC51):

    And the Supermoto race bike I ran in the CAN AM series in the ESMRA championship the last few years (03 CRF450R)


    I love these threads – it’s awesome to see what everyone else does in their “spare” time away from riding

    That’s the idea! With couple of mountain bikes and 2 weeks of comfy camping gear and food.

    Jotunheim in Norway, btw.

    This is my daily driver and gets me up the muddy, snow covered road
    to Hull Mountain – in the background.

    I’ve had this Jeep for 20 years. It’s a 1961 Willy’s Wagon. All original – except for
    the roof rack.

    For it’s 50th birthday, it’s in the shop getting an overhaul after
    being parked in my driveway for several-many years.
    I stopped driving it when I punched a hole in the gas tank accessing some
    remote trailhead at Shasta.
    When I got it, I rebuilt it myself. It’s been driven from California to Colorado and back
    and I spent the winter in Utah with it.
    I actually got hired as the restaurant manager of the base lodge at Solitude because of this vehicle.
    They wanted to open the place for breakfast 🙄 and needed someone who could get
    up the canyon before they closed it for avy blasting.
    When they saw my ’61 Jeep, I was hired.
    Had a blast getting face shots in the Willy’s driving up the canyon through multiple feet of that dry, Utah pow!

    Used to live out of it during the spring for a month or more, following the trailheads opening
    up around Shasta back in the day.

    That 61 willy’s is awesome! Good to see people still appreciate fine old trucks. I have a 71 bronco with 5in lift, 38in tires, geared, motored etc.. And driving a 88 yota for a daily driver. I’ll put up a pic of the bronco when I find one. Good thread

    My SUV is nothing spectacular, just a reg ole, ’03 Murano.

    This is my other fun toy.

    It’s not the fastest, best in snow, or even all that reliable – but it sleeps 4 and has a kitchen. The 94 Pathfinder gets me to snowy trailheads and the 01 Jetta Wagon goes everywhere else.

    The Dubsmobile has treated me well this year. Quite a change from only having 2wd cars with chains in the past! Gas mileage sucks, but beyond that it’s fun for road tripping, and gets me where I want to go. It was a big part of my epic eastide trip this spring.

    My other vehicles are gravity-powered! 🙂

    This is my 1997 F-250 Powerstroke. It has a 7.3L turbo-diesel with a stick shift (very rare these days in trucks). I found the Wildernest camper on craigslist for $400. Best investment ever! I love this truck but lately she has not been liking the cold weather starts, so I don’t know how long I can use her for splitboarding 🙁 .

    With the top popped

    Geared up for camping. Check out that fancy carpet. The only other place you’ll find that is in the Residences at Little Nell hotel in Aspen 8)

    Heading out for adventure

    Blowin’ smoke! Hehe

    This is my 1989 KLR 650. I bought it cheap with the intention of creating an adventure bike. Sadly, it has spent more time in the shop than on the road, but I’ve almost got her ready for Moab :rock:

    In front of Lake Granby

    Out in its element

    Next to the truck

    Finally, the latest addition to the fleet, a nice 2004 Honda Accord. It has a 2.4L VTEC engine with a stick–great for hooliganing around the city, and gets over 30 MPG. This is now my daily driver. With some snow tires and a ski rack it should be great for winter. Plus, its easier to convince the ladies to go out on the town in this than in the truck! :thumpsup:

    I’ve already decided that the next vehicle will be a Corvette. Either do it now before I have kids or wait 20 years :scratch:

    Looks great! What are the specs on it?
