After about 6 months of searching for a SMB, I finally found one that I could not pass up.
A little about me-
just turned 28 on Monday, I live in coastal Orange County and work in Los Angeles. I love traveling; I've been around the world several times, and have enjoyed time on every continent except for Antarctica, which I'm doing in 2 years. I love driving, I basically drive for a living (Law Enforcement), and would love to drive through all 50 states (+1 Sportsmobile!). I often work 16+ hour shifts, my commute is about 2.5 hours. Thats precious sleep time that I miss out on with those late shifts. So I plan on spending a couple nights a month sleeping in my van (+1 Sportsmobile!)
I've been off-roading a lifted and locked jeep wrangler for about 10 years, and realized that with the right locker and tire combo, you can go most places (within reason) with 2wd. I plan on 95% roads, and 5% truck trails. So 2wd makes sense from a practicality standpoint.
My hobbies are rock climbing, scuba, shooting, hiking and MT biking. So when I found this "unique" layout, I had to jump on it. I love the rear space for storage.
I fly out on Thursday to Oregon to pick her up.
So some of the details-
'00 SMB build
One CA owner
rear parking sensors
Feel free to look at the photobucket for more pics. They are from the seller.
My Mod plan-
get rid of the decal stripe
remove body kit (as long as it doesn't screw up the body)
Action Van lift / wheels/ tires
choose a locker (Detroit / arb ?) I have a full time Detroit on my wrangler that is great for off road, and "eh" for onroad
change gold drawer pulls
