    So who\'s ready for Attica?

    Just wondering who's ready, who has to finish mods, or just repair some broken stuff? I went to Attica last weekend and didn't break anything, but did learn I need at least 1/3 tank or it will stall on steep hills. And that I need my full hydro steering asap as I have to back up alot to make turns. I'm having trouble turning and can't get the gremlins out. Well hope to see you all soon, I will be there Saturday for sure and maybe Sunday, I have to see whats going on here at home and about camping situations if I stay.

    Re: So who\'s ready for Attica?

    I've got ORD HD shackles and HD rear shackles and the greaseable bushings to go all the way around. Sway bar disconnects are on the way and I need to do an oil change and hit all the grease zerks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif (need to chop my overload bar down for a zerorate.... maybe later)

    What are the plans for the campgrounds? I think a friend of mine thats coming (eric, 2000 dodge ext cab) is bringing a small camper. If Ryan gets his Blazer fixed (rear end R&P) he's wanting to come up. I'm bringing the silver blazer /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Speaking for Bryan and I both... his truck is all set! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Can't wait to get that beast out on some real terrian! I'm all set, and can't wait to hang out at the campgrounds previously mentioned by Todd.

    Speaking of Todd... You still coming ol man? /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Re: So who\'s ready for Attica?

    I'm thinking I'll probably be leaving early saturday morning and staying till sunday. Like Dan said, we're all set. I've got a few things that I'd really like to take care of before then, but I dont think they'll hinder me on the trail so I may just let them slide for now. It'll be good to get out on a trail again.

    Jeremy, are we bringing this tranny up for you or what? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Re: So who\'s ready for Attica?

    Bryan, go ahead and bring the 350/203 and that driveshaft you mentioned. I plan on getting there late friday or early saturday, depending on when I get off work friday.

    The only thing keeping me from being ready for the trails is my front driveshaft. Monday I'm going to see if I can get it fixed. If I can't get it fixed for a decent price, it looks like I'll have to try putting in the newer style front yoke off of the transfer case Bryan's bringing, and then use the shaft he is bringing.

    I'll have a full update in a day or two.

    Re: So who\'s ready for Attica?

    Are we camping Friday night? If so, I can be up there then, otherwise I'll be there Saturday morning. Who knows if I'll be bringing the Blazer or not. I still don't have a working transmission. If I can get something worked out this week I'll bring it, otherwise I may have to ride with NITRO or Laughner this time /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Either way, I'll be there.

    Define EARLY Saturday morning... just remember its a 3-4 hour drive there poncho! Maybe we should just leave after dinner on Friday night, get there, setup camp Friday night, sleep well that night, get up 7:30-8ish and start hittin the Badlands! Whadda you have to say to that? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Me and Eric are planning on going up friday night, eric is thinking about bringing his camper up for the weekend

    Do we need to reseve some areas for the saturday night people? Who's bringing tents or are people sleeping in the trucks? I was going to sleep in the blazer till eric said he wanted to bring the camper! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    As far as wheeling, your welcome to ride along, I'm not doing anything wild in the silver truck this time. I would like to checkout the orange trail as a spectator, shoot some videos and get some pics.
    Now I just have to figure out whats up with my website, the web host and the domain carriers are fighting about something, 3 weeks and no web site, I'm going crazy here! Luckly I work on 3 or 4 other webpages so I have been stashing pics there /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    OH! and the bushings I got off ebay might not fit. They are 1-1/2" and I guess my 87 is supposted to be 1-3/8"? I need to pull one off and see since we also done a spring swap to HD's in like 90 or 91.

    Re: So who\'s ready for Attica?

    one tent and barbeque smoker here...as well as a tow rig, trailer, and truck. What kind of parking do they have there? I refuse to park my tow rig out of sight at a popular park...maybe the trailer, but not the truck.
