    O.k. for anybody that has not emailed me and want to attend the run, shoot me an email and I will add you to the list.

    Its going to be the weekend of May 11-12-13th. Thats Fri, Sat, and Sunday. Going to meet up Friday eve, and depending on showing and input maybe a night run, then wheel Sat. and Sunday. Depending on people and rigs, we may do several different runs the same day, or split into two groups rated by trail hardness.

    My email is viveiros@bellsouth.net or depdog@off-road.com

    Just so you know, there is only one bybass, that for the entire trail system, its on Helicopter pad and the bypass is MEAN. If you are worried about trail damage, Grim and I know quite a lot of the trials and can let you know ahead of time. If it rains all bets are off!

    Damn man your killing me. I have the capability to go, but dont feel I have what all I need yet. Im posi rear, open in the front, 4" on 33" BFG's no spare yet, but htat can be had by the trip, I've got a 48" hi-lift, no tranny cooler for the 700, but I have the deep pan, no good with no air flow, but better and I got 1 tow strap, and gears that I just put in myself so Im bouncing off the walls waiting for my consious mind to let me believe that I did them correctly. So far so good, 400 miles and no problems. Just not quite ready for Tellico at least in my mind.

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.

    400 miles and you would know by now if you have a problem with them. Posi in the rear and 33's is not a bad combo, hell last year Grim went with 33's and OPEN diff's front and rear, if you got a strap and good solid pull points front and rear, bring it on!

    Keith and I both have WARN HS9500i's and I have shackles, snatch block, snatch straps. Between the folks that are going I think we can get you unstuck should you get hung!

    We will have an easier run. Heck I run everything up there but hellicopter pad and Schoolbus. I even run upper 2 (it's a tail light eater be warned) I do it all open and since my Supra decided to eat a valve I didn't have the cash to rregear and get a Detroit so probably running it open on 32's again this year.
    Open isn't bad if you keep the tires on the ground. Locker only does it's thing when you loose traction. Avoid lossing traction and you don't need a locker hehe.
    They just graded the 4-5-6 loop and it's pretty easy right now. Probably have th bridges in at Fains Ford and Rough water crossing so it will be even easier. Worst part about it is the HUGE water bars they installed. Get a Tranny cooler and a Gas tank skid and you will be ok.

    Man, I wish I could go this year. I would love to meet you guys, but I guess I'll have to wait till next year or so.

    Keith,
    I ran out and got a D60 and 14bolt, and definately will use em as soon as they go under the truck. But a while back when this run was first mentioned (many months ago), when Dep asked what dates are good, I said "definately after May for me" But May is the month yall chose. All good though [​IMG], but that's why I can't make this run. Sorry, but next year.

    I may have a new truck for the ride. I am going to pick up a 73 Blazer tomorrow. I'll just throw all the parts in a big pile and see what comes out. I guess I need to change my sig, but for now...

  14. Things have'nt worked out like I wanted them to but I'm still going to try and make the run even if I have to run with the 10 bolt in the rear.
