The Border Run has definitely :

Jumping the Shark is the moment when an established long-running series changes in a significant manner in an attempt to stay fresh. Ironically, that moment makes the viewers realize that the show's finally run out of ideas. It's reached its peak, it'll never be the same again, and from now on it's all downhill.

I will never again lead this run, but I would tag along. Sorry, so much of the adventure was closed off to us. Nothing was as I remembered it. Sad

Don't beat yourself up over it Jim. We all still had fun. Atleast Carol and I did. We appreciate what you do for the site and what you did for this run. If everything went as planned on these outings they wouldn't be adventures. The hiccups are what creates the most, and often, best memories. Like the winter trip to Asbestos Mine, we didn't make it but that trip was very memorable and really fun even though we failed to reach the peak.

Jim, if I can lead a run half as fun as your runs I've been on, I'd be very happy with that.
Please don't give up on being our trail leader, man! I look forward to runs you lead and runs we get to run with you.
Remember the unexpected Boulder field you had to tackle on the night run at box canyon, with a trailer, no less!?!?!!! That was badazz!! lol

Nicole and I had a blast. Hope to get together for more runs. Sometimes the unplanned events are what creates the memories.

Hey all, I enjoyed viewing the video of the recent run. Lots of awesome rigs and setups. I’m new to community and FJ aftermarket mods. There was a FJ featured in the thumbnail with a winch coming out of what looked like a stock bumper. I’m curious if that was custom or a kit. I’ll try to attach a screenshot to this post. It isn’t the US Off-road one I’ve seen before that replaces the lower valance. Just curious as I like the look of the stock front but would like the capability of the winch should the need arise.
Let me know if you know the owner of that FJ or can point me in the direction of the kit.
Thanks,
Ryan

That's my rig. That is an ASFIR (Az-fear) hidden winch mount. They stopped producing a while back, but have recently began reproducing FJ products and importing again.
You must remove entire front bumper, plastic and metal alike, to install hidden winch mount and then cut bumper around it. I went through a couple bumper skins to get it right. Don't believe I've ever seen or heard of another rig with this mount as it was purchased in lieu of the bumper (bumper is kinda fugly *lol*). The distributer at the time was getting rid of excess stock and talked me into how to mount it and replace my stock bumper. I made slight modifications to put it back to what I wanted. I have used the winch quite a few times for self recovery and to assist in recovering others and can attest to its winch mount strength.
If you end up purchasing an ASFIR product let me know and we can go in on an order together to reduce shipping costs. PM me for further info on purchase. I have a contact for the distributor here in the Phoenix area.
