Given you have time guys, can you grab some up close photos of the MIC top on the First Edition? Color wise it appears to match the fender flares now. Is that the case? Thanks!

Was the 2-door that Loren Healy and Vaughn Gittin took through the qualifying course a Sasquatch? Either way, that was pretty amazing for right out of the box!

I took two trips up to Bronco Knoll during KOH week.
Thursday (the 4th) I went up with a friend in his JK. This time I aired down and was able to make it up the steep hill climb on the South side of the Knoll.

We went down the East route, and then did a 50+ mile loop around Ord Mountain, through Daggett Wash to Route 66 and Newberry Springs, and back through Kane Wash and Tyler Road.

I went back up to Bronco Knoll the next day with a couple other Broncos (a Gen 1 and a Gen 6!), more details on this trip will be shared soon in a separate thread. I didn't take many pictures on this trip, but some of the others there did. Here's a sneak peek:

Hey Dave. Did you get to go?
here is the full story, I have never been to KOH so I was fired up. Packed gear and a sleeping bag. I was out in vegas for work so just staying a couple days longer to go to the KOH was only the cost of a rental truck and I had friends already going to be there. I drove out early Sunday from Vega and got in the lake bed by 9AM, some how found my friend without even having a cell signal. They were amazed I found them. They all had their SXS with them, My one friend that races had his old race machine there for extra parts that was recovered from a theft a month before. I we had to put it back together pit crew style since the dash was ripped out and the thieves did a bunch of hacking. well with enough duck tape, zip ties and rewiring etc we had it running with lights even. so we got to start riding sometime after lunch exploring the area and checking out hammer town. we went out that night riding to check out Backdoor and chocolate and watch the show.
we went out for a late night ride and the thieves hack the air box and some how the cover came lose and was sitting on the turbo, my machine caught fire. I did not have a fire extinguisher since the machine had been stripped, by the time by buddies got turned around to help another rider was there with one and put it out. needless to say we did not get to finish that ride. we dragged the machine back to camp and had it fixed early and was able to ride some more. I had to leave Monday night to catch an early flight Tuesday morning so I missed the Bronco ride and the reveal and all the others. I only got to see the one they had out early. I did get to see the rest of the fleet show up on the truck and unloaded. I was an action packed 48 hours for sure. I will be back and my boys want to bring our toys
