    I may try to do both....

    Need to get some "seat time" in the Beetle before Moab Trip.

    As far as this weekend, I'm leaving the house ~ 8 am, and hope to be @ Lower Woodpecker ~ 9.

    Hey Marv, Raychel told me to tell you that you need to change the buggy's name because Treasure Beetle is GAY!

    When my webshots updates , there will be some pics up . It was still hot today . Marvs front driveshaft is too short , and P/S hose needs a fitting . And Shawn had to get stuck in his Jeep .

    Treasure beetle can climb though with 3.73's and dual np208's . I knew Marvs idea would work .

    Tease pics :D
