Typically someone would say "So many good parts left on that!" but I know Nate already combed it. If he passed it up, it's not worth saving

Re: Important

If anyone wants an interesting show about offroading to watch, Truck Night in America on history descent. It is a game show where they take five 4x4's and do challenges. At the end of each challenge, one vehicle is eliminated. So far they are only two episodes in. The first challenge is usually a speed and suspension test with a series of whoops. So far I've seen a few cherokee's, quite a few Wranglers and Cj's, a baha built taco, super duty diesel, and a built ford Exploder. There has been two second challenges so far, I forgot the first one already, but the second episode had them using a hitch mounted push bar to push a storage shed off a cliff. The last episode had them pulling a submerged boat out of water. The final challenge is called the Green Hell. It has a straight section, a draw bridge (bridge that pivots down) a flat section, a section of crushed cars to crawl through, the roller coaster (log climb), woods, the snake pit (more woods with mud) then I think that is it. Out of the first two episodes, only one vehicle made it out of the snake pit. The winner gets $10,000 dollars

If you have access, the shows are online for streaming (https://www.history.com/shows/truck-night-in-america) and on demand on dish.

It looks pretty clean. Scrap the bed and find an MJ or make a flatbed platform for it. If I could move this bimmer I got Id be tempted to grab that myself.
