    I can't, I have an NRA High Power Rifle class Saturday and an USPSA/IPSC pistol match on Sunday.

    I'm working out the deal now, but I got some dually 1tons for the project truck... that should motivate me a little more to get it running again.

    How's everything in Lafayette?

    I wish i could go to redbird next Saturday, but i am tied up then. The Jimmy is still in one piece. It is a little narrower after wheeling with a group of jeeps last year and lost a few pounds due to rusty sheet metal falling off! I have a set of 3/4 axles to put in when i get done going through them and putting disks on the rear.

    have you done much to yours?

    I power sprayed last Novembers mud from the Badlands off last week! Does that count. Nothing worth mentioning. Won a wireless winch remote and put that on. Reworked front and rear springs with new shackles.

    I am hoping to go on Saturday June 17, but I'm not sure if it will happen. It would be nice to have a another full size there, although your K5 looks like you may not want to follow the Jeeps! Mine is on the verge of being a trail only K5, so body damage, just adds character.
