BlkWgn has hit a milestone, that’s right 200,000 miles. While its early life appeared to be easy, in the time that we have had it, the miles have certainly not been. After a long search we found the perfect rig on at a used car lot in Orange County Ca. The body was straight, the paint was shiny and without a scratch. The hook for the Warn winch was missing, but the line looked unused. The lockers engaged with a solid pull of the steering, and the sway bar disconnected quiet and smooth. Not a scratch or speck of dirt in the undercarriage, and a set of street tires. This was obviously somebody’s pavement queen and had rarely, if ever, seen a dirt road in its 73,000 miles. Oh, I almost forgot Paige’s favorite features, dual climate control and heated seats.
I have been looking at the Safe Jack kits from Bogart Manufacturing for a few years, have read about them, watched the videos and window shopped at Overland Expo.
Well, I finally came home from expo this year with the 6-Ton Bottle Jack Recovery kit. Luckily the only use it has seen was a driveway test, but so far I am impressed.
