JD didn’t leave Pongo stock long and make a couple trips west. Notice ARB front bumper and stock rear bumper.
Then front bumper was replaced with a CBI bumper
Then one day, JD and I were having lunch and he mentioned he was selling Pongo, we ate without talking about it much (we both always talk about what is the perfect vehicle for our hobbies) but as we left, I asked if he was serious and what was he thinking of for a price…. he was and I had a deal within an hour after checking with my CFO.
and I got to finally make my trip west last summer.
Heading to Edisto Island, South Carolina. It’s a 4.5 hour drive and I get about 4 hours on a tank. No problem, I’ll get gas when I exit I-95 – nope not paying 3.11 a gallon – surely one of the small towns on the back roads will have a station. Again nope, glad I carry 5 gallons.
