    Who should be there.... (I will add more as I know)
    Red Wrangler on 34 Swampers
    2001 Ext Cab Z71
    CJ5 on 34 Swampers
    CJ5 on 33 Swmaper SXs or F-250
    Bronco II 33s
    TJ 35 ATs
    Old CJ5 on 30s
    CJ7 35 boggers(maybe)
    Wrangler in 33s(maybe)
    new ranger?

    Anyone interested? Nothing big, just a little fun time. My Blazer wont be there, but I will be.

    I'm not totally sure who's going this weekend, but probably a black cherokee on 33" muds and a newer stockish s-10 blazer, but It really varies with our group.

    Well, he came along with us. We call him our tag along. :-)
    But, yeah, he was with us.

    I was kind of asking around, but no one said there was antoher club out there. And I never kept looking to find you. Sorry.

    I was the one with the video camera all day. Descent turn out. Made me real jealous that my truck was not doen yet.

    How did you like that Chevy on 42s.... that thing was ROUGH. Could barly turn the tires at all. Dont know who that was. I think a local.

    I was only out there for like an hour and a half cause the only other guy that came out with me had to get back. The truck I was most impressed with was a s-10 blazer body with the top cut off and a rag top, IH scout frame, 383, really beefy axles, i think dana 60/70 riding on 39.5 swampers.

    This was my trucks first time out after building it, it did pretty well, only stuck once is some really deep goop, but one of the half shafts must have had a broken boot, its clicking a little bit now. Just another reason i need to convert to solid axles :).


    1983 s-10 blazer, TPI 305, TH350 trans, 30" ATs, eventually solid front axle conversion and big meats.

    Yeah, the guy with the S-10 is a buddy of ours, not in the club but a good friend. And his truck definately is VERY nice.
