    Hopefully my cashflow pans out after the tranny rebuild and I'll have my 84 3/4 ton... if I do, I'll go. I'll go to the mounds anytime too, I live 15 minutes away from those.

    I'm hoping to get there soon. Last time over I had 3.08 gears and 33's (but still made it over all the hills). Now I have 4.10's, 35's and a rear locker. Plus I've changed from 16.5" rims to 15, so now I can run less air. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif Silver Lake rules. Everybody enjoy it before the environmentalists shut it down. When you think about it, it is just too much fun to be legal.

    I was coming up I-75 today and swung buy the Mounds. I may head down there tomorrow in the truck. The guy at the gate told me that I could thrash the company car right then if I would go get an ORV sticker for it. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    So if anyone sees a Blue/Silver two-tone K5 at the mounds tomorrow that looks like a 1990, with a pregnant lady in the co-pilot's seat, that's my rig.

    Went to the mounds yesterday (Sunday 21/07/02) and there was big mud after the thunderstorms. Only saw 3 other Chevy's there. A big stepside with blocks at all four corners and no front driveshaft, a late model with BDS lift and 35" MTR's (4WD broken) and a painfully stock late-model who couldn't really go anywhere. Found deep muck that I thought was going to swallow my D/S front fender. Pro Comps kept pulling, though. My wife thinks my truck rules after yesterday. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Did you see the two buggies that were there? Black one and a blue one.

    Hmmm. I ran into two dune buggies, but I don't remember the color. Every rig was pretty much brown. One was overheated and they were both sitting there trying to get it working again. I talked to them to ask directions, so if it's guys you know, they might remember a blue/silver Jimmy.
