    I'm leaving tomorrow morning about 8am with an empty shortbed pickup going from Turlock, CA to Eugene, OR. I'll be returning either late friday night or saturday (probably saturday). Anybody need some parts moved?

    Yes I do. I'm already back in Turlock but I can bring it back up with me in the next couple weeks. By chance did you go to the cage fights over at the Platinum Club last night?

    My friend & I were at the fights. Then we raced back to Eugene and stopped by The Nile for a bit. Good times! :D

    It's worth the visit. My friend gave it two and a half thumbs up! :D It's almost too convenient since it's only a couple miles from our new place. :rotfl:

    Cool! :waytogo: I can't wait to start exploring but I'd definitely feel more comfortable going with another rig. I think I'm gonna try the Noonday Trail first since it's close and doesn't appear to be too difficult.

    Do you have a set of half tons, or do you need a set? I've got several 10 bolts laying around that I need to get rid of.

    I want to run noonday sometime this spring after it melts out. Sounds like fun and great photo ops if the weather is clear per what others who have run it told me.

    Sure do Jeremy - I will have a complete set of front and rears - and better yet they are 30 spline, not 28 splines! They have 3.08 gears though, so they will need new gears for sure. Otherwise they are in good shape, as they were the ones I was DD with.

    I have 2 sets of 3.73's. One of the fronts is 30 spline so I was gonna rob the shafts out of it for spares. I'll probably end up stripping them of any useable parts and tossing the rest.

    Thats sorta what I planned to do with mine if nobody needed them - just yank the shafts and yokes and toss the rest. I have spare open gear sets if I trash a Lock Right, so I just wanted to hold on to the shafts, hubs etc. Costs more to re-gear then it does to buy used ones off somebody else.
