    I brought the "blue thing" home last night, now that is how a clutch is supposed to work. Smooth as glass. The only problem is a few other problems came into view. I'm thinking real serious about 3/4 or 1 ton diffs and 4.56 gearing. Even the boss seems to think we need to do some beefing up to make the "blue thing" more dependable. Currently I have a medium sized rear ring and pinion issue that is only going to worsen with more abuse.

    But man is that Centerforce Clutch nice.

    He really thinks I should be donating the 14bff with 4.56 gears that I have sitting here at the shop. Don't know about that, though.

    As much as I would love to see you and Cirrus along with all of those vehicles, we will be in Ault celebrating Liams 3rd Birthday. Then on Monday through Wednesday and again the following weekend we will be moving into our new home in Delta.

    Mike let's try to do something mid-September by then I won't be able to stand it any longer, not wheelin' of course. We need to get Duane playing on the rocks in Bangs Canyon before he heads off to BB06.

    Bo maybe late September if you can get over here on the west side we could put together another run to Bangs Canyon. IMHO it is fairly close to what Moab is like.
