    we meet up today to BS and play aound a bit with the trucks nothing too serios just hang out, so we thought...

    The 4wheel drive testing yard was reserved by some BIKERS so we werent allowed in :deal: :angry1: . We drove around to play in the ditches and go up the hills. Not even getting out the ditch Socalsnake broke a rear ujoint taking the black blazer out:crazy: . Waiting on top the hill for a while we go see whats taking sunny so long to get up the hill? he was backwards in a ditch after his engine died:doah: . we winch him out the hear noises from the rear diff..yes the Gov bomb struck agein :1zhelp: . Sonny drives down the hill, I bump his tire to keep it on the truck till both tires want to come off. He finaly takes both the rear ties off and I drive him fullpull style to the road :burb: :bow: . In between all this the rest of us drive up hills through valleys and over ledges.
    I am sure others will add their input and thier pics. I had a great time meeting and wheeling with the socal guys and the canadian :burb: . I hope we could go their agein and I hope Darkshadow enjoyed his so cal winter wheeling

    25 MPH limit. Look up Gorman. Hungry Valley State Vehicle Rec Area (HVSVRA) is imediately West of the "5". It does have camping (no water), but if the weather is nice, peeps running around all night, kids on wheels everywhere.

    looks like you all had a great time. I made to just past Magic Mountain up the first grade on the 5, truck was running fine then all the sudden BILLOWING WHITE SMOKE PPOOUURRIINNGG!!! OUT THE BACK OF THE BURB! :doah: :doah: :doah: :mad: :mad: :mad: DAMN!, didn't even get my new tires dirty. i thought it was the motor at first cause its not in great shape but it actually was the tranny, i think it must have blew the front seal. the little bit of trans oil left on the dip stick does not even smell burnt.

    when i pulled over at the turnout near the top of the hill i didn't shut it off right away, i jumped out and looked under the truck and it was gushing fluid everywhere! :eek1: :eek1: . i scrampled to shut it off, i prayed it would not catch on fire, thank god it didn't :crazy:. so yea, i have to get my tranny rebuilt. good thing Brent didn't ride with me this time. trans is a 700r, just what i really cant afford right now, but i got to do what i got to do, you know. dont look like the sub will make it next weekend to Stoderd Clean up but i will be there.

    **HI-JACK ON**

    That sounds like exactly what happened to me about 10 years ago. I was driving the Blazer to Gorman with a trailer in tow and it started smoking just like that. I too had the 700R4 and it too blew the seal. At that time I was living in Lomita and took it to the AAMCO on PCH. Don't take it there. They will ream you a new one and take forever. At least they did 10 years ago. Maybe it was cause i was a dumb kid but it really pissed me off.

    **HI-JACK OFF**
