Welcome to the forum! 😸

I won't bother warning you about emptying you pockets, seem like your well aware of how that works! :ROFLMAO:

But I like your "handle" Tombicon. You should have a set of hood side stickers make in the "Rubicon" font. I think it's quite original and unique! (y)

And BTW, we want pix when it gets home so we can peruse Blaines handiwork cuz,

This thread is worthless without pics
Hey Modoc Guy.
The Tombicon stickers are in the works.
Just need the jeep back from Blaine so I can install them.

Well I really liked it cuz my names Tom , and it would be a great name for my faux-bicon I'm trying to build. :ROFLMAO:

But I wouldn't steal it, cuz being original I where I'm trying to go.

Yep, not sure if my new moniker of Mikicon would look good on the jeep. I guess I could change my name to Tom. I used to "tomcat" around quite a bit.

Yeah, I got most of the "Tom's" covered. You know, peeping Tom, doubting Thomas. Only ones I can think of right now. 😖

But I definitely got beat on the Tombicon! 😉

Update: 3/24/2021
Jeep just got here!
First look since I sent it down as stock.
Sheeeiit! #$@111 $^&(%## -Sorry, cant stop the expletives, she's so nice!
It's freaking beautiful, Blaine!
Going to go out to Tahuya this Sunday to see how she acts off the pavement. Thus will be my first, real, off road test. I've spent the last two years being "gentle" with this old girl, as she was so (factory height) low. I did beat the shit out of her at stock height. Lets see what happens Sunday. :eek:
Pictures to follow after Sunday's adventure!!!

Noooooo! I would've asked Blaine to put some parts inside it for free shipping!

That's awesome dude let's go wheel! Was at Reiter last weekend I think Boulder Alley is my favorite trail in WA right now. Its not muddy. Which is why I have had no desire to go to Elbe I'm winter or spring.... Do you trailer?

Hi BOOmbOOm.
I was actually hoping you might reach out, as I noticed we're semi-close, and, I have been following your thread!
I would have been happy to haul parts from Blaine's. Sorry I didn't ask the forum as a whole. :cry:
I've never been to Reiter, but did notice a Facebook posting for an event later this year. Yes to trailer. Now that the jeep is done (yeah, right, who the hell am I fooling), I want to get out and wheel at every opportunity!
Anytime your up to meeting for a run, please reach out!
Mike

i had to take my tow rig out of commission for a bit, doing front hubs, rear driveshaft, pinion seal and then I'll be ready for more. I'll post on here next time i go. I really want to see what 35s can do when built right. What tires did you go with?

Are you ok with hitting those rocker guards? Reiter has a reputation for making a lot of loving contact between rocks and rockers.

I know the feeling. I did the opposite way instead of saving it up and doing it once Ive done it paycheck by paycheck for 3 years. Doing and re-doing!
