It was Friday, everything was new. Diesel engine, Ranger under drive to an SM420 and three speed case I had lying around. The FJ60 axles were just installed with brand new 4:88 gears and lockers, all of the suspension was new, the steering was all new. A couple weeks of straight work on the 55 and we were getting ready to take it on the shakedown run, Rubithon 2011.

We had a great experience on the Rubicon river canoeing upstream and into some very scenic pools. We fished and swam, wheeled and had a great time.
