Aaron's New Toy

Well, we all know that coveting is wrong, and there are basically two ways to overcome a coveting problem: work really hard mentally and emotionally until you finally stop being covetous, or get one of your own of whatever you're coveting. Aaron Decided to go with the second option. Back in March, three years after his dad bought his Jeep, Aaron finally talked Devon into letting him get one of his own, and here it is.

It didn't look quite this good when he bought it, but after a lot of hard work, and a lot of emptying of the wallet, it's ready to go. It came with a seven inch lift, but Aaron and Bob replaced the soft top and the windshield, added new 35 inch tires, differential lockers, 4.56 gears, a winch, offroad lighting, new tail lights, new shocks, new brake lines and a host of other add-ons...not to mention a lot of good ol' fashion elbow grease.

With a trip to Moab in the works, the boys needed to test out the new Jeep. So they went out to a little spot west of Utah Lake affectionately known as "Little Moab" to make sure that it was ready for the abuse it would have to endure down South. The jeep did great and they decided it was Moab ready!

So Aaron do you drive this thing around as your car now, or is it strictly a toy? Looks like fun! It also appears you have a new ride in the garage... sweet! Did the Honda finally give out or what?

Yep, this is my new commuter, and it gets a whopping 15 miles per gallon! And no, the Honda didn't die, we just thought that with the baby on the way Devon should have something a little more reliable. So, back in October we got her a 2007 Nissan Maxima...lucky!
