Yup Bishop California.
We went higher up towards mammoth. Really nice up there and cooler temp. Then made our way back down to Alabama hills its really hot but found a nice blm spot with a creek to keep us cool. It was about 90s at 7am In lone pine area. Got really hot fast.
I had a long travel Tacoma. Always wanted a jeep but need a truck bed.
When Jeep announced the Gladiator that was it. Won't ride as smooth as a IFS but puts a smile on my face every time I drive my Jeep. You won't regret it. I have about 22k on my JT now and no issues so far.
