Welcome to my website! I hope you enjoy your visit. I have taken my truck to some incredible places and have some photographs to share with you. Please let me know what you think.

I purchased my 1992 Dodge Dakota in April 1992 from Archer Dodge in Houston, Texas. This was the only Dakota LE in the Houston area at the time. Archer Dodge drove to Tomball, Texas and picked it up for me. When it arrived in Houston, it had approximately 42 miles on it. Now, in February 2015, I have well over 350,000 miles on the truck and have made some major suspension changes.

When this truck was built, I lived in Salt Lake City, Utah. One day I was just outside of Moab, Utah and I was pulled over by a Utah Highway Patrolman. At the time, the truck was one inch higher than the Utah lift limits. The Highway Patrolman crawled underneath the truck, measuring and inspecting the conversion. When he came out about 20 minutes later, he told me, "I have seen a lot of conversions around Moab and most of them are junk. This is the best conversion I have ever seen!" With that, he let me go!



Many of the trails that I take my truck on are not suited for stock vehicles, including 4x4's and SUV's. These trails are suited only for highly customized four wheel drive vehicles and expert, experienced drivers. It is not uncommon for vehicles to sustain major body damage and mechanical damage on these trails. Tow trucks cannot get to most of these trails and if they can, their charges will be very expensive to retrieve a vehicle. Many of these trails are in extreme desert conditions. Extra food, water and first aid supplies MUST be carried on all trails. Simple injuries can be life threatening due to the remote location of these trails. Always travel on these trails with at least one other vehicle and let people know where you will be.
