Best MJ story-

I'd say just meeting other owners who share a similar passion.

 

CC is Awesome! Why?

Awesome members. Not too often is there drama and there is loads of valuable info here. Great to be a part of it.

 

I'm glad Wade reached out to me to have this truck featured, even though it is a repeat. It certainly has changed a lot over the years. Congrats, Wade!

Feels good to not be the only one to be MJOTM twice anymore! Well deserved, Wade. Can’t believe how much of a transformation it’s been!

Amazing photo transformation in the Misc- section and all very cool in their own right.

 

That would be an awesome survey in the pub to pick the best flavor!  :L:  

 

Nice truck, nice work, great fun!
