    Well, we all finally met at Chad's place!!

    Man!!! What a shop!! Huge and awesome!! [​IMG]

    Everybody who showed up was: Phyte, Kyle89K5, ChadH82, Rocko, and thatK30guy.

    Chad used his John Deere to move the axles out of my truck and to lift the 454 out of Rocko's trailer. Then put the motor back into my truck and the same with the axles into the trailer.

    Everybody liked Chads project in the 'awesome' shop! Very thorough and his attention to detail was awesome, too!! [​IMG]

    My wife and I were the first to arrive, around 1:00 p.m., then Kyle about 15 minutes later, and finally with Rocko about another 15 minutes later. Pretty close for everyone to arrive. [​IMG]

    It was good and cool to meet everyone! All were nice people too!

    On the way back home, we stopped in 'Wichititty' and did a quick visit with Blzr4x4ngkid and got to see his Blazer for the first time. I sold him the 3/4 ton axles and the 9" front and rear springs. Very nice and BIG K5!! [​IMG]

    It's always fun to chat and b.s. with Alex!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The whole day started with us leaving around 8:15 this morning and getting back home around 9:30. Man, we are tired!! [​IMG]

    Oh yeah!! It was also hotter than a whore on nickel night the time we were all visiting!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It was great to meet everyone.. Wes.. THANK YOU BIG TIME for the axles.. Can't wait to get those beauties in my truck..
    Chad.. nice place.. and great shop.. and HUGE thank you for using the tractor to lift the engine and axles.. Good luck with your Blazer. .
    Kyle.. awesome meeting you also.. You made Thomas aka "Stoopalini" very happy..
    Although I played a prank on him when driving home.. I called Thomas when we were in Fort Worth.. told him we have his axle.. Then said.. Oh crap.. we forgot to load it..
    Thomas was not phased.. Oh well .. bad attempt at humor..
    All the Dallas area group.. Great meeting you also.. wish we didn't have to run off.. but ... we were a little behind schedule from being Pulled over.. [​IMG].. Okay..I was pulled over in Waxahatchie.. That's gonna hurt..
    Thanks everyone who made this trip a fun one..
    Jason.. thanks for helping out on the journey.. hope I didn't drive you too crazy with my antics..
    Pam.. for cruising with us.. taking some pics.. and using the Tahoe for the journey.. You're the best..
    I definately feel like you all are family.. Thanks.. [​IMG].
    Okay.. I rambled enough.. we just got home 20 minutes ago.. 11:30 Central time.. I have beer in hand.. trying to unwind..
    Talk to you all later..
    Wes.. again.. Thanks..

    No problem! [​IMG]

    BTW, the group pic of all of us did not come out very good. We should have had the sun in our faces instead of behind us. [​IMG]

    Gonna wait to see how the other camera's pics did. Will have to scan those if they are good.

    Let us know how your pics turned out. [​IMG]

    I can't thank you guys enough for helping me out with the D44. It's a great feeling knowing I'm finally on my way to 4-wheel again [​IMG]

    Rocko ..... sorry I wasn't phased, call me again and I'll try to act a little more upset about not loading my axle [​IMG] .... LOL

    Sorry I couldn't go with you. This weekend was well spend on my truck though; got the CD player and speakers installed, fixed electrical problems (elec choke) and got the new 14B hub installed, so no more axle leak! .... woohoo!

    I'll be cruising your way in about 30mins rocko, so I'll see you soon.

    Kyle, I hear my axle is in great condition, I really appreciate it! and the spindles are just an added bonus!

    Boy, what would I have done without CK5 .... I'd still have a stock blazer and getting stuck in the woods ....... hehehehe

    Thomas.

    73gmcjimmy, have you seen the short bed in Wichita Falls that rides on those big 46" turf tires and has a 496 big block with a blower? Guy's name is Brian Taylor. Look him up and go check out his bad boy!!!

    I have the Off-Road magazine in which his truck was a cover truck. Very cool and awesome truck!!! [​IMG]
