    Man I don't know where to begin. The Southern California K5'ers really came to my aid on Sunday. What an awesome group of guys. I was heading up a steep section on the trail and blew my 10 bolt. kpansa pulled me up in his tricked out K5. Then the rest of the group helped me take out all the broken gear chunks from the diff and take off the rear drive shaft. I drove all the way home from San Bernardino to San Diego with no probs. I actually drove it to work today in front wheel drive. But not before Mike helped me find a 14 bolt full floater for $150.00. I am stoked. But man thanks again you all for the help. I owe you all. later

    I saw the Video..hehe that is great. So funny when everyone is like " Oh! man that doesn't sound good!"

    ....Mike I owe you big time.....


    here is the link for the site...the video has my clanking horrid sounds. Just use the drop down box and go to the bottom where it says VIDEO...

    This is EXACTLY what we need around here more often!!! People like Mike, who go the extra mile in helping out anybody. Even found that 14FF, and I assumed the $150.00 was the original cost for it. Seems like Mike didnt even try to jack another "finders fee" to that cost!!! A real swell guy is someone who looks out for others and hopes the same in return. Good job guys!!!

    I agree, Mike really went the extra mile! Kudos to you Mike! I was happy to help BigBlue, I would want someone to help me the same way when my day comes! I just can still hardly believe that my truck was able to tow BigBlue all the way up that trail! I gave my truck a couple pats on the back after that!! Again, the Detroit and ARB lockers proved they were worth their weight in gold! [​IMG]

    Glad you made it home alright BigBlue! Get that 14 bolt in there and we can have some more fun down at Los Coyotes May 5-6!!

    I thank you for the pats on the back, but that isn't what I did it for. I did it because I would the same from someone else.

    I had a great time with you all. I can't wait till I get that 10bolt out of my truck so I can enjoy all the trails with you guys. See you in May.

    It is great to know that people like Mike are still around in this world, and what was even better than that is that there was alot of the same type of people on the trip. My hats off to you Mike.
    Hey Jeromy,
    If you need help with the 14B install send me a e-mail at kvanhorn@egraph.com and I will see if I can get down to P.B. or O.B. (can't remember which one) and give you a hand. Oh yea, you better send me a private message here too just incase my e-mail goes down here at work again.

    See Ya,
    Keith

    Hey Matt,

    You know I will be there. I want to show you how to REALLY drive a K5. hehe. I hope I can pony up the cash for the front swap. I might be riding around with 2 spares for a while. later.

    Yeah, Big Blue, that is the cheapest way to go for a while, just bring two spares! How is the truck coming? Hope you are ready in time for Los Coyotes!! If not, we are planning on being up in Big Bear for Memorial weekend! I plan on wheeling all weekend (well, when I am not fishing!! :)
