    Martinez is great. Check out this link for some pictures of the luge bypass done on a barbie jeep. Of course we did it in trucks also.

    I go ou there once a year and camp out for a few days with a group of guys. It is a beauitiful area. It rained last year and waterfalls popped up everywhere.

    I met JMS at Martinez Cabin. He has a pretty cool blazer, still dont know how he ripped his tail light off though.

    Michael my dear friend...i did something similiar out here in GJ on 21 road...took out the left rear tailight and surrounding sheet metal. Had to use a slide hammer with a j hook to pull it out enough to get a spare from one of my used blazer fleet out back at the house. Course the same run cost me a set of wheels to boot...lol.

    Micheal...if all keeps going well the 79 will resurrected at EJS.
    Got the front 10B ARB installed and allmost the complete xover steering. Need to pull pump to install new AGR pump. Allmost got a custom engine exmember in place before i had to return to wyoming where its been snowing all day and bu-- --- cold. Still kicken around thoughts of what to do about the trans since it will be a daily driven oilfield truck with bite. 700R4 by Bowtie Overdrives comes to mind right now....since i haven't ordered a pair of custom diff covers yet the front is still dry so i could still swap in 4.56's and or 4.88's....the doubler seems tobe the best way to go but that new stakk xfer has a 1:1-OD-4:1 set up that sounds tempting....no R4 to worry about.

    Also installed the M1009 cold weather kit thats been in the garage forever now...allright 2 years. With the desert tan paint it really looks good on there.
