    Now that is an idea, I may just have to slap the hydro steer on the Mog and head down there. Hopefully Tyler will get his rig done soon and we can just throw both of them on a gooseneck trailer and head down there. :D

    Saw you out there, but didnt head over and say hi. We were playing on the rock piles in the quarry when you came to the back side, black K5 sitting up on the ridge, me spotting an XJ, and another guy playing in his CJ. You passed us on the way back on RT.41 as well, the truck looks and sounds great :D

    I wasnt sure if that was you or not, that was a nasty climb the CJ was trying to make. Made for some good entertainment. I was gonna drive over and say hi, but I wasnt sure if that was you or not. Looks like you guys were having a fun time out there, I know we did, talk about sloppy and slick....:D Thanks for the compliments on the truck, it worked out great for the first tow with it. Hopefully we can get a bigger CK5 group at Badlands soon.

    Oh yeah, we had a blast. A little on the wet side, but fun anyway. If it hadnt been so wet, that CJ would have made that climb, he can drive that little thing like nobodys buisness. And yes, he's always entertaining :D

    We do need to get a larget CK5 group out there, there's a lot of people on this board i have yet to wheel with that i would love to hit the badlands with, especially now that i am no longer as concerned about body damage as i used to be.
