Anyone want to run CHinamen's on Sunday?
Meet at the gas station in Johnson Village at 0900.
Let me know. Looking to test out the repair on my rear locker.

I read the page on the trail. What would it be like for some stock vehicles? If it's passable for them I might try and see if my crew wants to go out. We have a mixed assortment of nuts that loves to wheel. Plus I still need to put my lift on :). I just need to know what's up with the trail first. Thanks.

I may be able to head over there. Was a fun time the last go around with you and Troy. I will know tomorrow if I have to run a crew or not on Saturday and will let you know by the end of the day.

As far as a stocker goes, it would be difficult. When I ran it before, I was putting the skids and rock sliders to good use most of the time. I'm running a Frankenlift with 245/75/16 MT/R's with open diff's for a comparison. It was fun, but it would have been a lot easier with at least one locker and more articulation. Only encountered 1 spot that Troy had to strap me up over. The rest of the trail was doable mostly to great spotting, and of course learning to go easy on the skinny pedal a bit when crawling over rocks. :twisted:

Bartlet summed it up great. As for stockers, I would say a no go w/o damage.
Sorry Yaveo, but It is your rig, but after doing it with a 2.5" lift prior, I would not do it w/o a lift.

It hadn't been started since before he left for Afghanistan. The Optima exploded into a ass-cloud of suk and there was air in the lines. After a new battery, diesel 911 and some priming, it started on the 10th try. I disconnected the negative terminal to reduce discharge and hopefully, she'll be ready to go when he comes home.
