    August 6, at the Badlands is the REAL TRUCK CHALLENGE. What better way to hook up with other CK5 members. Maybe a little trial riding early and catching the action later in day. If your trial rig isn't ready, bring the daily driver & cruise the dunes!

    Anybody want to make a go of this? I need a K5 fix, been wheelin' with too many jeeps lately :D

    I am thinking about heading over for a day to watch some of it. I don't know if the jeep will be ready to go or not. I've got the old motor out, just trying to get some parts swapped over, then drop it in and splice in the new harness.

    I don't know. I'm just wetting the appetites alittle. Leave the junk at home and ride with me, I go solo most of the time. Bring some Ohio boys with ya too. It'd be pretty cool watching people thrash their rigs down in the quarry during the competition. Attica has been getting ALOT of rain the past several days. If it keeps up it could get interesting.

    Nope, mainly for the reason I'm not in Bloomington anymore. I came home for the summer, and I'm going to Ball State from now on. So it's Anderson from here on out. As far as the K5 goes, I've been driving it around the yard once in a while, but no major progress on it. I'm picking up a 6.2 to swap into it this weekend from Eric. Once I finish parting the K20 I'll have a set of axles to put under it. I have all the parts, but as always it's a matter of getting them installed. :doah:

    Man, I'd sure like to get back to the Badlands.
    I haven't been there in so long it would prolly be a whole new park to me!

    We (CCC) already have a run scheduled for that weekend.
    We are going to check out a new park in South Central Missouri called Flat Nasty Offroad.
    http://www.flatnasty.net/
    Hope it turns out to be a nice place.

    Guys, keep an eye out for the info on our annual organized gathering called Fall Crawl.
    You can find info @ http://www.capitalcitycrawlers.com/
    We had a great showing of fullsizers and a fantastic overall turnout last year.

    It'd be nice to meet up with some of the old guys and some of the new!

    Here's a pic from Fall Crawl 2004.
    Hope you guys have a great time at the Real Truck Challenge!

    I would love to go, but i don't know how much fun wheeling will be. The entire truck only area will be closed off. The only sections that you can go into are some of the muddiest in the park. If this rain doesn't stop completely, their will be places that a k5 on less that 50" tires will be lost in the mud!

    i was with tim last year on his crew and it is a blast even just to watch all the craziness and carnage but it is 3 hrs for me and it is totally worth the drive if i push my self my stuff could be done for it but most likely not
