We had an old F-14 on rubber. The kickback from trying to start that thing put a younger, thinner me across the barn a couple times. Iím heavier now, I think Iíd win if we still had it.

I can relate.
I had an 04.5 and I started running into issues in November and they kept coming! I donít spend big money on trucks either but I did udpgrade to a 2012. It was well worth it!

Always loved those old Landcrusiers. Had a friend in high school with one. Years ago went to Costa Rica to visit a friend and we crossed a river with a couple, full water kits, it was over our doors. We towed a mini van across that couldn't make it.

We have new responsibilities. The grandkids are ready for tubing and water skiing. We stepped over to a bow rider,
