Gotta say, I'm glad you got it Steve , noticed the boards were gone,
looks better, but I still think it saved the rockers and flares. I'm
just trying to figure where to put the money on the J10, brakes need
some sorting. Glad to see you're putting it to use. Later

Postin' up dent pics of it's maiden voyage on the trails just wouldn't be right... admittin' to gettin' it dented on it's maiden voyage, on a public forum is just as wrong...

Roy,
I too am convinced that the running boards saved it from corrosion and stone chipping damages, as the rockers have THE best paint condition on the entire vehicle...

Unfortunately, IMHO they look funky, and too boot I don't believe they would have remained fully intact and attached on the trails anyway . And it's likely, the damages they would have caused while being "trail rearrainged" would NOT have been pretty...

We ran Kane Creek yesterday... but with it's significantly more difficult trail rating, we decided it was the better part of disgression and valor that we leave the Chero behind...At least until it has the planned upgrades...

You're right they were more than "funky" looking. Have fun.

I believe the color to be Russet Metallic, think the code is 9C. Steve might have more information. Roy

Nice! How'd it do accross the water crossing on the side nearest Faux Falls? The water didn't look too deep but that rock looked kinda big coming up the hill.

Take good care of that'n

To my knowledge, no states list color codes on the titles... But the color code is indeed 9C, and IIRC was called "Russet"... A copper shade with metallic tint.

UPDATE

Had plans for the Chero, but a buddy in Michigan has been drooling over this vehicle, since I got it back from Bend, OR... Made me an offer I couldn't refuse, plus it will be going to a GREAT new home, as I KNOW he will do right by it...

Other than removing the running boards, had only gotten around to the following;
- driver door hinges rebuilt (door sag)
- hood pop-up assist spring cups straightened
- t-gate pins adjusted to fix rattle
- fuel tank filler & vent hoses replaced (dried out & leaking)
- shift lever & headlamp knobs epoxied on
- fuel filter hoses re-routed to correct starvation in 100 plus temps
- driver side eng mount replaced and restraint strap added
- all hinges, strikers, & latches lubed

While we were in Moab in May, my buddy rolled his YJ, so I located a nice tub, hood, & t-gate for him and had agreed to haul it to MI when I headed back in July for some salmon fishing... SO... got permission from the new owner to use the Chero in Ouray for my annual trip for the 4th of July in Ouray/Silverton... That way I can load both, then leave for MI, directly from Ouray area when we're done wheeling...

Loaded & ready to rock... Tossed in an old Honcho driver door I've been hanging onto for since forever, in case he bends one down the road... Don't need it cluttering my storage any longer...

Best laid plans of mice & men... Basically, he bugged me about his having big plans for a resto-mod WT that I would be proud to see, until I gave in...

After hearing all of his plans for it, I couldn't resist not allowing him to give it a go... Should be a SWEET ride when he's finished...

Perhaps someday I can find another as nice, to work with myself...
