    I want to wheel , you want to wheel , then lets wheel . I don't care who any of you are , you are all welcome in my book .

    Post up anytime you want to plan something . Don't wait for someone else to do it . Time waits for no man , and that goes for anything in your life , just do it .

    I don't care if its not extreme either . I will gladly wheel an easy trail if means good people and a fun time . I know a lot of guys feel left out because they aren't built up yet , or have built it up and have no seat time . Seat times where its at .

    This newbie run on the 15th , is for returning the wheeling trips and solidarity back to the board . It would be nice if some old faces could compliment the new ones.

    Going to go fishing and wheeling alot this summer too , its only heat . Tj and I did it before we ever rock crawled . I am not above doing it again , in fact I really want to !

    Lets go wheeling damnitt :deal:

    There will be some times this summer you could use that truck , if you want to drink some beer at the lake .

    I like working on trucks when its cold outside , so I plan on going back to actually enjoying myself in the summer :thumb:

    On some trips where its flat , but not upper woodpecker .

    I need to have my stock front driveshaft lengthened (longer) since I have longer leaf springs and the flex is crazy but awesome. Pauly mentioned I could get a rear shaft out of a pickup and have it cut and weld the yokes on... Trouble is finding the right person to do the cutting and welding.

    You will need a CV'ed rearshaft to modify and you will need it to have the GM flange to fit the front. Your best bet would be to lengthen your stock front driveshaft with a longer piece of tube. You will have to cut both ends off and weld in a longer section of tube. With that much flex you will need to grind the CV stops for more angle too.
