    You probably saw the pics of mine so I wont go into that and Donna's has a bad pinion bearing. It has been bad since I got it but I really don't want to push it more then I have to.

    I am at work right now and will be home around 4:30pm.

    I could pull my suspension and axles out of my 87 in like 20 minutes and put everything in the 78 in a couple of hours, then just trim the fenders. The rear is already out of the 87, so make that 10 minutes to pull the front end apart.

    JK!!!

    <font color="blue">I live in the Northeast corner of NJ. We have a couple trails up here. About the rollbar, I've been there twice with just my soft top and they let me in. As long as you have 2 tow hooks, a spare (doesnt matter if its smaller than your other 4 tires), and everything is strapped down- especially the battery, they'll let you in. A hitch counts as a tow point, thats all I have in the back. PAP is easy to get to. Take 80 west to 81 south then get off exit 142 (rt 924). Make a right at the end of the exit ramp and go north. Make a right into the industrial park and make the 2nd right (I think) after the trail tracks. Go past the water tower and make a left into the woods at the entrance. OK tire is going to run some easy trails if you've never been to the park. Me and 2 or 3 other club members are going to go off on our own run different trails than the OK groups

    <font color="blue">I have a rollbar now, but not the last time I went. The guys I'm going with are going friday night, but I dont get out of work until 11 pm friday night then its still 2 1/2 hrs away, so I may just go early sat morning. I already have a spotter, but I'm sure you can find somebody to go along with. Theres going to be tons of people there. What does your truck look like?

    Is this an all weekend event and I would also like to know about the camping situation? I dont really want to come for just one day because its at least 4 hours from Maryland. I just finished dropping in the new 350 and a 2 inch body lift but still dont have the 35's or the locker in yet. Still like to come though.

    <font color="blue">You can camp at Red Ridge campground, its about 8 miles from the park. I'm pretty sure some of my club members are staying there, I'm probably only going for saturday now. I stayed there in the spring and it was very nice, I think theres a phone # on the Paragon site. The 80-81 RV park is right up 80, we stayed there for UCP and it was good too, just further.

    Oh and my Blazer is blue now /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    <font color="blue">Does it cost anything to register online? I think me and a few other guys are going to go off on our own and run some different trails than the OK group, I don't want to pay twice

    this will be my first time.im sure you dont have to stay with the group if you dont want to.the rule at paragon as i read them is you have to have at least 3 trucks in a group to go out on your own.
