Craig I use the one by the Sarasota square mall
off subject but whats to ride around SRQ? i went to school a MCC (i know they changed name since) i used to ride my 95 dr350 around bradenton but a lot of the old places are now housings. You guys have to go South? like north port now?
So been doing some thinking- what would I use more than the DL? Wife says wrangler, or a flats boat.... open to trading up or down I guess.
Do Buzztopia men like sport bikes?
As close as you are to ANF, I'd go with the Wrangler.
I'll be good with letting either sit at least I won't be taking up covered storage with a boat/Jeep
If you're talking about that S1000R yes, we love them here in buzztoipa, but I'm not sure that would be much of an improvement to my situation.. that one needs to be in an air conditioned garage, wrapped in Egyptian cotton! It's one sexy MoFo for sure!
There is nothing in Sara, north port is all burned up from brush fires last weekend.
Wranglers vs boats.. i d do wranglers.. but i'd shop around and research the piss out of it before buying something.
i dont want to go into a long talk on what years vs whats better.. but all depends on what you plan on using it for.
What year is best to just sit unused?
I'd like to set one up for light off-road. ANF type stuff. And weekend in town fun. Also to tow the unused boat that I already have, but want to upgrade to something nicer to not use.
Heres the break down simplified
CJ7 -78-86 total rust buckets that people think are gold bars.. but for the whole "weekend projects" they are fun to work on. 86 models and Renegades are hard to find .. Laredo's had chrome and tachs..
YJ (the square lights, leaf sprung) you dont want the pre 91's they were carb'd and you dont want a 4 banger. Inline 6s are best but also like the CJ's they are expensive.
TJ 97-06 round lights they came out with the rubicon in 04.. if you got the money get a Rubicon.. I ve seen decent ones sell for $14k and they are lifted and set up for any trail you could throw at it. The non rubi's are usually puddle jumpers because they require tons of upgrades.. falls under the CJ status as a fun build
JK 07 to present.. 07 to 10 something like that they used a Pacifica motor and it was weak and full of problems. The Jk's are cool because they have computers to monitor wheel slippage and traction.. So a stock JK can go places a well built TJ can go.. The older jeeps are basic they "teach" you how to drive as opposed to them Computer controlling you..
But the one thing thats awesome about jeep wrangleresks.. Everything is replaceable, Everything is upgradeable and tons of parts every where!
Anything smaller than a 4 door JK is considered death on wheels when you try to tow something other than a dirt bike or a jet ski
The 4 doors allow bigger tows and even that leaves it to Jonboats and small watercrafts.
97 - 06 TJ with the bullet proof 4.0 inline six is the way yo go for a trial rig. The 07-10 V6 are POS. Not impressed with Rubicon; you can build a good set of axles for not much more up for the difference in price.
That said most of what you'll find on the rails in ANF can be done in 2wd by a skilled driver. I would say stock Dana 30 and 35 will survive 33" tires in ANF. Find a stock TJ and mod your self as you find what doesn't work. Most modified rigs have have the snot beat out of them.
I've bought 2 rolled TJs cheap. Aftermarket bolt on fenders and a bow-less top fixes them cheap.
My kid is driving the last TJ I did https://lakecity.craigslist.org/cto/6136555356.html
wow Jaydee.. you and i probably chewed on the same dirt at one time or an other LOL

TJs were built to flip. I wheel XJs. Most of my Jeepin was done in Richloam chasing the F350s on 44"s and wading out in swamp water up to my nipples to hook up my strap. No way I would take a $10k TJ into this shit. I've hydro locked many a 4.0 more than once.
This was a memorable night in Richloam. A Unimog got buried tiring to snatch me out. Took a Xj 2 TJs and a winch to get him out.
When the Mud Dawgs weren't swimming out in Richloam we were breaking our junk in Alpha and Beta pits.
Is that Travis Matson?
Not sure for his last name but yes Travis AKA Yellow XJ

you need to post a picture or or two
Year of bike
and quick description even if it just repeats what you said.
People like to see the bike and not on back of a truck.. im sure you have a nice one of it just in your drive way or garage?
Oops, I forgot that I never uploaded any. Didn't have any saved to my computer when I originally made the post. Thanks for the reminder. Fixed.
