    O.K. there seems to be some interest in a Rubicon trip. How about next summer? Maybe June time frame. That seems to be when the snow is melted off. I'm thinking the whole 60 miles of it. I've heard it takes 4 days for a j@@p to get through and who knows for a K5. I would like to make a few trips up there for practice and to familiarize myself with some of the area. The first trip could be as soon as 2 Sep 01 after our Frank Raines trip. Anyone interested?

    I saw a write up where a stock Br*$co with 33's made it. If a F**d can make we can for sure.

    It's all attitude and body panels anyway, and I think we have enough of both. [​IMG]

    If my truck is half way to where I want it to be when it comes time I am there.

    See Ya,
