Really another vote for the rodeo Coupe, now don't get me wrong it's a nice 2nd gen well maintained two-door Rodeo convertible but that's where it ends. And I mean to take nothing away from what radares got going on.......

But Sanchez is a first gen Real and True the only amigo as far as I'm concerned. It's been molded out of a pile of crap and is continually getting better all while being owned, wheeled, dominant in the trails buy a woman. Yes Kates husband has a hand in the physicality and technicality, but it's her vision this being built and brought to life. It's her skill behind the wheel taking it through the trails. Her wants and demands are shaping this into an awesome truck. You've already been one up by a woman don't be spiteful in your voting, instead celebrate and congratulate her with or without rotm she already owns that ---.

88,

Can you please stop dogging 2nd gens Amigos/Rodeo sports. I mean I'm not sure if your just crushing on this lady Kate, better watch out Lou, or if your being serious.

I've owned nothing but 2nd gen Amigos and don't see one in your profile; So please don't knock them till you try them.

Kates rig is a nice looking truck and from the looks of it a great trail rig, it probably helps to be a stones throw from Uwharrie for practice.

Radare's is a prestine truck that is being meticulously taken care of while being a daily driver. It's different strokes for different folks here.

I am not worried, Texas is very long drive from NC, lol. I dont think he was really dogging second gen rodeos/amigos, I think he was just campaigning for first gen amigos since he has a pretty strong fondness of them as well as the rodeos and trucks that share the same body lines. BTW Eric, next time you are up this way, if you have time, you should accompany us on a ride up to Richland Road, I think you would really like it. Its got some technical stuff but also very scenic.

Its a blast. The great thing about it is that there isnt a bunch of guard rail and stuff taking away from the natural beauty out there like there is at URE.
