Just got my reservation in on 1/20, and am excited to see what's in store!

My wife, I, and our two dogs hail out of Front Royal, VA (70 miles west of DC). When not slogging 100 miles a day to work, we're exploring in our built '05 Sequoia (which the IG will replace), or our '21 RAM Power Wagon w/ pop-up camper shell. Or...equally likely...I'm creatively cussing while working on them :unsure:. While we've both been various places throughout the world, for the foreseeable future, our travels will be limited to vehicle-based as our young Dutch Shepherd has...issues :rolleyes:. So...we build our trucks around the dogs, and will simply be intimately familiar with North America when all's said and done! We were dead set on an LC200 in a few years (hopefully at least a few) when our Malinois is gone (she's nearly 11) and I don't need the space of our Sequoia. With the introduction of the Grenadier, however, and my teenage boy-like lust for the dearly departed Defender...my desires are rapidly shifting. Should the IG actually come in at the pricepoint they're shooting for...well...so long, Yota, and I'll MAKE the dogs fit!

Looking forward to the sharing of news and builds as they trickle in. Given I'm at the bottom of a long list of reservations...I'm ok with that. Gives us more time to pay everything off and learn from others' mistakes...er...creative consequences! :p.

Just squint your eyes and imagine a Slate Blue Trial Master w/ white roof, and red frame. Outside Gunnison, CO on BLM land last summer.

I’d hazard a Guess at a Malinois and a Dutch Shepherd 🤔

I'll be sure to visit and frequent that thread!

In the meantime...here's:

Havoc, our Dutch Shepherd, who will be 4 in April, is the fastest dog on Earth with the handling of an overloaded dump truck (though he throws a mean rooster tail when cornering) and loves adventure time...despite getting carsick 🥴. He was a covid acquisition (failed out of a K9 program down in NC), and it was a bit of a rough transition from my wife and I being home 100% for his first four months with us...hiking, backpacking, and exploring nearly every day...to me returning to work 1/2 time, to both of us going back full-time.

And this is Alexa...she'll be 11 in April, formerly my certified tracking dog, and the most confident, athletic adventurer we've ever had. She absolutely loves bouncing around in the trucks, and to just chill in the tent. Her days of long, loaded, backpacking trips may be behind us, but we simply adjust. She may not be able to outrun her baby brudder, but she can outjuke him, and still hold her own dropping elbows!
