To start I'm going to work on the interior mainly. The paint does need to be redone but I might wait on that. Go play in it first.

Only Colorado people would think orange and blue go together.

Previous owner didn't really refresh the little things so there is a lot of odds and ends I'm going to take care of

I'll try but not my focus at the moment. Even the 40k one I tried to talk my wife into had red labels. They wouldn't go away.

Nothing wrong with orange and blue. On football uniforms maybe.

Just for trails right? Looking forward to it.

Lol. Thanks for proving my point.

I will drive it around town but yeah mainly a toy. Need to replace all the ball joints, tie rods, brakes, rotors etc

It drives ok, but I haven't drove it over 40.

Well, even when they were new, they were a tad scary going fast! At least you don't have drums all around.
