Hello from Colorado...

Thought I'd say hey now that I finally quit lurking and registered on here.

I was born and raised up in Alaska and moved down here to Durango for work 2 years ago. Unfortunately, I had to sell the shop and the equipment to make the move happen. Everything is slowly getting replaced again and the Jeep can start getting new goodies soon

Always... it's got too much stuff to list here just now but I'll get some pics up soon.

The big plan is getting it ready for 3 weeks off road in Baja this coming February.

This is a pic from last year... the flat fenders up front have since been smashed in Moab and the roof rack has been replaced with a custom aluminum one

Thsi was after I narrowed the front bumper and built some turn signal pods in the factory foglight holes... looks a little different now but you get the idea

Sorry about the pic size... hopefully it gets auto-resized

Hey there! Can't say I recognize the vehicles but I'm sure I've seen them around. We should definitely hit some trails... I'll be wheeling in Canyonlands for most of my time off until the 3rd week in October but after then I'd be down...

What kind of Jeep you building? Any pics of the other 2 rigs?

I dig the altered reality of a fisheye... espcially when you get such a blue sky mixed in.. whats the lens? did you use a polarizer? or did you just photoshop the levels afterwards?
