    Got Friday off....!! Let\'s go wheelin\'

    WoooHoo!...

    Just realized that I get Friday off. Any Zonies want to plan a trip?

    As a side "caution" note, I heard that people were getting cited out in the general "Florence" area last weekend. All who don't have the proper permits should beware (this includes myself)....

    Not this time. Moneys tight and I really need atleast one locker, both is what I'm shooting for. But, I guess I'll just wait.
    Cited and permits for what?

    If I can get my steering together, I might be able to go. I gotta get this thing out and try it out! Still got to get the pitman reamed out for the 1 ton drag link ends, some minor machine work on my spring plates, and lengthen my front shaft 2.5-3”. Plus cut my core support but that's only about 10 minutes... Oh, and that would be without the hydro assist cylinder installed. Where ya planned to go?

    Re: Got Friday off....!! Let\'s go wheelin\'

    I have to work this friday. I have to wait till the April 13th trip. I still have too much to do to my rig before I can go wheeling. BTW Marv I've decided to take you up on the offer to weld up my 12 bolt. I'm off on Saturdays and Thursdays. This Saturday is probably not going to work, but If it's convienient for you I will try to make it happen. I'll PM you my phone #.

    Re: Got Friday off....!! Let\'s go wheelin\'

    lgk5,

    7 hrs to Moab..!! You must not have the "high speed shimmy's", cuz last time it took me 10..! See ya there in August! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    FWP,

    I want to go do the "Mingus Mangler", but I think we'll wait till it gets hot down here. What is the elevation of that trail? We of course hope you can make it.... but understand if you don't.

    All interested in Friday's Run:

    Ok...here's the plan: Meet at the Texaco at Florence Jct (meeting of 60 and 79) at 9:00 am on Friday. Since it looks like it will be a relatively small group, we'll run Upper Ajax and if time permits... go walk the first few obstacles of Highway to Hell. Still wanna do this trail, but we can't fit thru at least one of the obstacles! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Note: Upper Ajax is a tough trail for us fullsizers. Every truck that goes thru will have some good body damage and I wouldn't even attempt it without at least a rear locker.....

    Well, we got Russ's arm reamed out today, so hopefully he'll get everything (heh) done for Friday morning...
    I got ahold of Keith too, & he has Friday off, so he'll be out too take pics. He's bringing a friend of ours w/a samurai with him since his J**p is scared of that trail.
