    Goodbye Bessie!

    In case you haven't heard yet, I have sold My H3. It had been a great 13+ years of ownership. I got to see a lot of places and meet many great people.






    Her life was coming to an end with me. I no longer had a place to do the work that she needed, mainly an engine rebuild. I looked high and low for a donor vehicle that had a V-8 with a manual transmission and four wheel drive. I also looked for a 3.7 used and a 3.5 rebuild. All options were more money than I wanted to spend. I also need something a little more suitable for a city commuter since I want to get back down to a two-car household. During the process of trying to sell it, the computer threw a P0420 code, bad catalytic converter. I tried swapping O2 sensors first but no luck. The upper cat was already replaced roughly 15K miles prior so I know it was the lower cat. I really didn't feel like throwing more money at it just to sell it legally (in California) so I chose to take it to CarMax. Before I drive it down there, I stripped off a bunch of things like the UCP, onboard air, aftermarket radio and short-stroke shifter. Sorry, the THOR Parts bumpers went with it. I also left my Dash Plaque under the hood. I am hoping that the next owner will reach out to me or at least the forum.

    This is not the end of my off roading though! I have a new project waiting for my tax return. I am going to order a Subaru Crosstrek. Yeah, I know this isn't a "real" 4x4, but I found one in SoCal that I want to duplicate! Not as capable as the H3 but should be able to take Wheeler Ridge in Bishop.




    I will be posting a build thread here once I get the car.

    Sorry to see Bessie go. Some awesome memories and great times. Debated the same with the Pig, a few times. Still a thought, ugh. When you get set up, Bishop sounds good. Miss it, after all, the first real trail I had done and all the excitement. Lol!

    Sometimes the cars depreciate to the point that it isn't worth selling. They are worth more to you than you can sell them for.
