    Guys,

    Looks like we might be going to Parker over the T-giving holiday. Never been there, but based on what I keep hearing about the "yearly" event, it should be a great place to 'wheel.

    I've heard the forecast is for hard'n'heavy rocks!... /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Larry, I don't think the springer set up is recommended for use on a vehicle used for towing.

    Larry,

    If you are interested, just e-mail me at marv_springer@yahoo.com

    Here is my web page.

    The towing issue is valid.... /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I really don't recommend any setup that uses the F-150 springs if you do a lot of towing...

    Marv

    Sorry for the speaking bad of your kit, I was looking into it for my Sub but I do a lot of towing. Maybe one of these days I'll be able to afford a trail only rig, then I'll get your kit. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Hmmmm... Well actually I do very little towing. Going to be towing my small enclosed work trailer while puting an engine in my work van. Then after that it's just to tow toys up to the mountains once and a while.

    Noticed on your front page that you have a tow hitch on your rig :rotfl

    Dang Marv! Why didn't you ask us earlier?? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif That sounds like fun, and I know a club that goes there every year over Thanksgiving - the Inland Empire 4 Wheelers club...maybe you'll see them. They have some hardcore rock guys, they're always in the magazines and have done the Ultimate Adventure both years...

    I have wanted to go to Parker for a while now, hear the wheeling is great there. Tell you what, why don't you go and give us a detailed report of the action/terrain and maybe we can plan a trip for sometime after the New Years Holiday? Sometime in late winter/early spring before the heat? Oh, and what would you think about a Rubicon trip in early Summer?? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I'm gonna try to go again next year...

    I've been to that bar too! That is so cool! Like I said, maybe we can do this trip again in the spring?
