All of the cars in my collection are as close to stock as possible. I was born when CJ2s were common. I've watched the common become rare due to rust abuse, chop jobs, and attrition. In these parts, a nice clean TJ is already rare. I can't see how guys think they are "personalizing" their Jeep by making it look like all the other jacked up, stripped down, over-tired and wrung out examples death wobbling down the road. Rant mode off. To each their own.
That's a great shot! Sedona is truly a unique playland for Jeepers. The red rock formations and challenging trails make for an unforgettable Jeeping experience. It sounds like your son had a blast being your co-pilot. Did you get to explore any other trails while you were there?
