He had fun. I had fun too!

Damn man, you were getting pretty squirrely there.

I would've gone a lot slower

What's the GF looking at / for? My guess . . . where's that confounded river?
So, where IS the river? No photo of the "flow" with the Jeep in the foreground, and as some would imply . . . no pic., didn't happen ! Was it a day trip, overnight camper or ? ?
Hey Fanatic, I found you a nice fly fishing kit.

I hope those help! I will let you know how it goes.

I have a 2014 Limited with QuadraDrive II and Selec-Terrain. I took off the standard tires and rims and bought a set of Rubicon rims and tires from a local guy selling them off his Wrangler. I covered up all the chrome with vinyl as I am not a huge fan of it.

Nice!

Question, are those 20" wheels? If so, what tires are you using? Do you have QL?

Hey GOV., let me know when your up for reelection, I may be able to "help" !? Oh, it's Finatic (as in a fish FIN)
WOW, some people sure know how to relax In Style ! When I expanded that 1st Awesome photo (on my 46" hdtv / computer screen) it was FANTASTIC ! The colors were brilliant and clear and sharp . . . I had to add it to my screen savers ! So, you drive one of these babies ? I guess the Governor's Mansion has a 3+ Garage and a small guest house out back where I could "shack up" for a few days while teaching you a few Fly Fishing Tricks of the trade ! ?
My fly fishing "Kit" consists of a rubbermaid type plastic bin w/lid for the boots & waders, plus a new "sling" (used to have a vest for Many years) and that is about it. WISH I had that guys $,$$$,$$$ but I born to a lower middle class military family (1951) and shortly before I could "register a thought" Dad was gone (a victim of Panamanian Malaria - so I was told as a teen!?). Enough of that side track. THANKS FOR THE GREAT FLY FISHING PHOTOS, it is my passion, not much else left I can do, well, there is DRIVING my new RECON 75th Laredo 4X4 with ORA 1 & Tow . . . Tomorrow is Detail Day; today I de-badged everything but the 1941 / 75th Anniversary badges and the hatch JEEP ! This time tomorrow the "RECON-izer" should be looking Bright & Shiny ! ! ! I just may have to take it to the river for a few "poser" shots to post here ! Next week I am planning a short Fly Fishing trip and perhaps a few more Pics !?
Thanks again . . . & to ALL, keep'em coming.

Very Nice ! I see the sun setting in the last photo . . . were you two "roughing it" in a tent, Cabin, or Swanky Hotel, or . . . ? Family gathering or are they all just "strangers" lurking about ? Next time put the G.C. on a raft and float it by . . . gonna make a great keepsake photo !

Yes, 20" and 275/55 Wrangler Duratracs. I like those tires so far, they have 17K on them. The QL was set to ORA-I, and not to the highest setting of ORA-II.

Love the pics - I did Big Bend years ago in an F150. May be time to try it again in the JGC.
