    If your wheeling buddys call you right now, is your truck ready to go? If not how long would it take you to be ready?
    As for me, I'm ready about 80% of the time. If I small problems, less than a week.

    Mine is usually ready to roll, but I think my t-case took a crap on me 'cause 4 wheel hi or lo locks up...but for now, I'm getting a new t-case, some tires, shocks, exhaust...should be ready in a month or two, depending on how motivated I get. I just got done dropping in a new engine and replacing the radiator.

    Well if it werent raining or if I had a top on my truck I could but right now a tarp with a bunch of holes in it isnt cutting it :rolleyes:. I finished all the mounts for the soft top tho :D but the upholstery place closed early on fri and I didnt know it so I have to wait thru all this rain until mon before I can finish my top...then its gonna be sunny again :rolleyes:. But yeah sure I COULD go :p: but actaully buddy just called me yesterday and I basically said next week so I guess thats where my votes going

    Hey Y'all,

    Slowly but surely, it's getting there. I'm looking forward to some cross country travel with my rig. So far I'm gonna go wheelin' with Muddybuddy, BigBlaze433 w/ invitations to Chevy305 and Chrisblazzin, and a whole bunch of CK5er's from Texas.

    Just keep an eye on my post.

    Thanks!

    Manny
