    Time is drawing near for the Slab run on the 27th. I need a count on who's going.. we're camping out.. I know a few of you planned on it also.
    So please email me.. or post a response and I'll make up a mailing list and directions to the "SLAB"..
    Talk to you all later..I hope. !!!
    Below was a posting from a month ago.. just as a refresher.

    So far, the count is up to 12 people attending...

    Good luck, on the run, wish I could join you all.
    Be careful about staying outside of private property around the river. Someone just posted on the tx4x4 list that they got $545.00 tickets for coming just inside of a property marker, and make sure noone in your group does it, they gave tickets to the whole group I believe.
    Just be careful and save that money for some truck mods.
    See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://128.83.80.200/taco/slabtickets.html>http://128.83.80.200/taco/slabtickets.html</A>
    Good luck, it should be a blast.

    BTW if anyone is looking for a '79 jimmy in Dallas let me know as I'm selling mine, it has a medium hit right front that has bent the frame a little, otherwise everything in good working order. Less than $1000 350/350/203/10/12 4"lift no rust

    Well, it looks like I can make it it. My truck stalled on the highway(183) at 70mph. So I thought that the coil messed up, but when I took the cap off the condensor was cracked open. So I replaced the condensor to no avail, but tonight I figured out that it was the fuel pump that took a crap on me [​IMG], but I will replace it tommorrow [​IMG]
