I'm mostly looking for "professional" type position rather than going for retail right now. My last several sales type positions have been working for manufacturers in B2B sales positions.

Thanks for keeping your eyes open! I really do appreciate it.

I think we can find something a little more aggressive than Skyline.  We'll get you in on the next run to the Snakes trails west of Lehi - they're great for stock trucks looking for a challenge.

Welcome Nate! It's nice to have another Davis county guy up here. We will get that runner in great shape, and then dirty Laughing in no specific order.

On a separate note my partner at work grew up in the south Davis county area and says there are some good hard four wheel trails above the B and is willing to play your guide for us whenever if anyone wants to play

new guy, but have been around a while

Post by ricsrx on Wed May 07, 2014 8:18 am

So I got the link to this site from RME, at first I thought< I don’t wheel a runner so I need to move on, Wait a minute, I DD a 99 runner, I have parted out 3 first gens and still have one in the back lot, plus I have a 2nd gen waiting for the next build.

Any way My name is Rick Gardner, I have 4 kids, Brook 30 married with 2 kiddos, Rachele 26 married with 2 kiddos, Shelby 18 senior in high school and last but not least Hunter 16 sophomore in High school,

I did the whole muscle car thing when in high school, worked in several small repair shops during that time (still have my high school 1969 Mustang fastback).

I have been playing with dirt bike and quads since the late 70’s (showing my age). In the late 80’s I bought my first buggy for the sand dunes. I lived at sand mountain every weekend for almost 10 years, I have done the VW based buggy’s, Pinto motored buggy’s, but my latest  long travel 5 seater is waiting for the 5.0, ( that project went on hold when I got into the rock crawling scene)a 1986 Suzuki quadsport 230 with a 92 Honda CBR 600 motor wedged in the frame. It was bad ass until the raptors came out, now it just sits in the garage, I miss my old YZ 490, I had a 5ver Toy haler that I filled with bike and quads and pulled the buggy behind it. I have had some very good times, I miss sand mountain in a lot of ways.

My oldest daughter hooked up with a guy who was into rockcralwing, (SLC97SR5 on RME), The biggest reason I made the move to this hobby is the community, the sand sport industry has no community at all, it’s just you and family  and couple buddies,
Once I found  RME I was hooked.
My new SIL John turned me onto Toyota’s and I was very skeptical at first, I had a CJ7 and a Cherokee and figured I would build a jeep, John talked me into a Toyota, my first purchase was the 1989 runner I still have and have not done anything with it, but I fell in love the first Gen trucks, so I built that first and found out how cool Toyota’s were, I love that truck and will never sell it (as you can tell I don’t sell anything….) Then came Hunters truck, that was a cool project taking it to another level of build for me. And now we are building his RX-7 for the street, when we finish that I will get back to my 2nd gen runner, for it I have collected a 4.3 vortec, 700r4 trans, dual cases, fj 80 front axle, 3 gen rear, 5.29 elockers front and rear w/ high pinion for the front, it will be low chopped up on 35’s and exo caged, street legal, it should be bad ass.

I really don’t like to ride or drive that much anymore, but I love to build and get great satisfaction by participating during a group rides by helping others overcome obstacles, on the trail and in life.

My hope by joining this forum is to give back to the community, maybe to help someone that is just starting out trying to make ends meet with family and hobbies and to be great stewards of the land I love so much.

Hey guys,
I'm Jon, I have been in Salt Lake for about 2 years now and I don't see myself going anywhere anytime soon. Bikes are my thing. I build photo bikes for an online company here in SLC. I spend all of my free time outside, which means I'm usually in my runner heading off into the wilderness of some sort to mountain bike, camp, hike and go as far out as possible. I have a 2 year old daughter that inherited my love of the outdoors by blood. I'm in the process of going to school for Rangeland Management also.
yea, thats it for now.

Sounds like we all need to actually meet up and wheel since it's been a while....

Well, I do a lot of tinkering and wrenching even when I know I don't need it.
Sounds like a good start!

And I think wiring issues might be the bane of my existence...

Hey I'm new to the off road stuff, it looks like fun and I am looking to start. Right now I have a stock 1999 4runner, but I am looking to get a lift soon, and go from there.
