Well I went and did something I've been wanting to do for a while. I've traded my '13 JKUR for a '16 Ram 1500 Limited Ecodiesel 4x4. I'm moving some money around and will get a dedicated off road toy for continuing the trail adventures. Not sure on timeframe yet, but within a few months. Currently thinking the Mihandra Roxor, but I need to see them in person first (Fredricks Outdoor is now a dealer).

So if you want a jeep with a known history and still in great shape, go see Landers McClarty's used lot. Apparently, they didn't take the banner off the windshield before taking pics (I'll have to call and ask they do that) but I did remove the member sticker on the back. https://www.landersmclartydcjal.com/inventory/used-2013-jeep-wrangler-unlimited-rubicon-10th-anniversary-four-wheel-drive-sport-utility-1c4bjwfg6dl564379

The Roxor would defiantly be fun to play around with. It amazed me when I did some reading on how similar it is to the the cjs. Enjoy your new Pickup.

The bad thing about those is they aren't street legal. If you're just riding in a park then it doesn't matter but so many of our rides you trailer close by then drive from the parking place to the trails. You also have to leave your tow vehicle someplace that may not be the safest at times. For what they cost, you can have a very nice toyota pickup, 4runner, or older jeep with money leftover. Your new truck should be able to tow one on a dual axle car hauler without any issue. The combo would weigh around 6,000 lbs depending on vehicle. With trailer brakes on both axles you should be able to stop the load just fine.
