  • Hi from California City , CA

    Hi, my name is Dennis And I live In California City. I got my 04 X last April and have been loving it ever since. I got stationed at Edwards Air Force Base last after being at Vandenberg A.F.B. at Lompoc for 13 years. So I am wondering if I might know IVasty from the last thread since she is from Lompoc. When I moved here life sucked , I was surrounded by mountains that I wanted to explore but I was driving a ford Taurus. I wanted to go back to Lompoc so bad. I was actually taking the taurus to the dealership for some warranty work when I passed the Jeep dealership and saw all the new Rubicons. I had to stop and drool over them. I owed way more than the taurus was worth but the dealership hid the extra money somewhere and got me financed. Three hours later i was driving away a very happy man. Unfortunatly not with a Rubicon, because of my extra money owed on the taurus the paymenton a Rubicon would have been over $900. The Air Force Does not pay me that much! Now I love living out in the middle of the desert and I don't want to leave. I have mountains within an hours drive almost all the way around me. I tried catching the group that went to calico this last weekend. I stopped by the trailhead on my way to Vegas(won $700 on slots) but they were already up the trail. I still need a couple more things before I am hardcore trail ready so I didnt go up and try to find them. Had a nice BS session with the Jeepers with the RV at the trail head. well I better close this novel out before everyone falls asleep. Plan on seeing me on some of the runs like last chance canyon, randsburg, and Calico. Here are some pics .

                  Welcome, Dennis! Nice looking Jeep! I was in the same boat as you (I say boat 'cuz I'm ex-Navy ) I had a 4Runner that was just not what I wanted and I really wanted to do some off road exploring. I'd had a Land Cruiser but it got totaled in an accident. Saw the Jeep and got financed and here I am! I'm constantly amazed at how it outperforms my 4Runner in everything (except for storage space...) I went wheeling out at Corral Canyon and my stock Sport just totally DOMINATED the two Toyota trucks with 6-9" of lift on 35's I went with.

                  JEEP- THERE IS (CAN BE) ONLY ONE.
