Forgive me, I have no manners, I joined the forum and started posting, but didn’t notice there was an intro section until now. Anyway, I’m Alex and I live in Silicon Valley - about 2 miles from the new Apple headquarters - and I try to get out of here as often as possible, mostly a weekend warrior. I spent nearly two decades road racing motorcycles with AFM, WSMC, WERA, FUSA, AMA Pro, etc. - got to go to Daytona, Road Atlanta, all over the place, not just the N. California tracks - and was very fortunate to retire from racing in 2010 without ever breaking a bone in my body (crashed plenty of times, was just very lucky). At one time, I had one of the fastest non-factory RC51s in the country - see pic. With all the new found free time and $$$$, I got back into saltwater fishing (got a center console Parker) and got a green 2000 TJ Sahara, pretty much bone stock. It was supposed to have a Dana 44 but that turned out to be false. We swapped in a Dana 44 with disc brakes, TrueTrac LSD rear, lunchbox front locker, installed a 5.5” Rubicon Express short arm kit with Bilsteins, did the SYE mod, completely armored up the underside, went to 4.56 gears, 35” BFG All Terrain KO2’s, Warn winch, custom steel bumpers, OR-FAB tire carrier, recently swapped in JW Speakers headlights (tutorial is how I found this forum) and the TJ was good enough to get through the Rubicon Trail last year. I wanted to do Moab this year but broke my back in May due to a freak accident on a KTM 300, so this year is a write-off. My fractured L1 vertebrae didn’t heal with just a brace so had to have surgery six weeks ago but I’m recovering nicely and Nurse Ratchet is kicking my azz in physical therapy. Moab is still on the bucket list but I’m starting to get to know more off-road people and hope to get into more weekend camping and maybe hunting trips. My Jeep also serves double-duty pulling my duck boat - see pic. Hope to meet some of you on the trails and thanks for everyone’s contributions to this forum!
