Yes. I would because I like adventure, but it is so going to break somewhere along the way. 13 20.00%
No. It ain't making in and I am quite possibly a fraud and it's there to make me look cool. 1 1.54%

Everything that breaks on mine has been repaired by someone else, just drove from Frederick Oklahoma to Northern Illinois with a bad alternator,something I can't work on.
Because I built it to overcome issues like this my part of the build worked,wish repair shops could do the same

I'm afraid to answer the poll. I do drive it as much as I can.

I regularly drive my truck on 500 mile trips in the summer w/ top off, no cats, and 35's. I am deaf when I get there but trust the reliability. I put around 5,000 miles on my truck last summer most of which was to HITR, UT and Colorado. If you ever go to HITR you have to trust your truck; middle of nowhere. Hopefully it gets me home tonight........
Sorry. My bad. But what is HITR ?
