To the fine gentlemen of this community,

Reading through this thread, especially the past day or two, I nearly got choked up from all the discussion about helping me get my truck back or build a new one. Ive said it before, but it really cannot be overstated how amazing the members of this community are. As generous and kind as it would be to donate parts toward a build, I dont think I could accept it. I still have hope that my truck will make its way back to me, but if not, there will be options to set things right. There will be responsible parties, and I definitely wont be one of them.

With all the difficulties I have been through in recent years, I believe the best medicine (and education) for me would be to see this through to the end and put in the work to get back to where I need to be, even if that means losing my truck along the way. Not having my 110 right now is only a small piece of my life that has caused me grief. My priority since coming home from Iraq in October has been to focus on my career among other personal matters. This bail bondsman opportunity that fell into my lap last month has picked my spirits up, and I think I will enjoy it. I took the licensing course, and, as of today actually, I am a fully licensed VA bondsman. The progress feels good.

However, because of this new job I have started, I cant make it to Happy Hour tonight. The rookie gets the night shift. Oh well. Drink one for me, boys.

Again, I cannot thank you guys enough for the generosity you have showed. Hopefully, making it to an event in my truck one day and buying you all a round will be a start.

This statement from you shows the type of person you are. It just makes me want to do more towards you getting an other truck. My hat is off to you Sir.

Surprising isn't it?

You think there would be enough parts laying around at that shop to build a couple dozen Defenders
