Barns & Noble this evening...don't think I've ever paid $26 for a magazine unless it had nude women in it or could hold more than 30 rounds!

Just caught a glimpse of a limestone 5 door 109 in a new Verizon ad. I didn't pay too much attention to what they were selling but the location was S. American I believe.

That is absolutely awesome!

I'm a sucker for hardcore looking rigs, and that roll cage looks beefy.

The aluminum on these trucks is so soft, protection is a must

Yeah that's Jordan.


Funny to hear what people say about the cage he built himself around the truck he built himself.


keyboard wheeling is still pretty cool I guess

Doesn't Jordan know that exocages are only for the mall crawling 110's!!!!?
How dare he build something himself and then actually use the truck for more than running to StarBucks!!

Nice. I miss sausages, curry houses, and fish and chips. Best fish and chips I had in all of the UK was at the Thurston fish and chip shop right by the train stop(outside Bury St Edmunds).

I am pretty sure no one...I/me/we meant anything bad about his cage/creation...I think it's pretty cool...statement of fact that it wouldn't survive a crash impact...we all know it's for off road impacts/trail rash. From a mall wheelin perspective yeah it would serve well from hitting folks side mirrors and wheel chair hitches and the like!

A friend of mine spotted this one in Philly yesterday - I knew I recognized it from somewhere and sure enough it was an ECR rehab:
