    Saw a Black blazer on a trailer heading north on 75. Had a nice prerunner bumper and what looked like 6" lift and 31" ATs...You need some bigger tires dude!!!

    That was me. I normally run 35" Baja Claws, but then I can't fit on the trailer. Oh well, guess I have to get a bigger trailer. Ran Yanush, it was TOUGH. It is now rated 6+/extreme/winch only. Steering started crapping out 1/2 way. Hit a tree on one side and a rock on the other. Stephen Watson's Alcan susp. worked really well. I am using ALL of the 15" travel Pro Comp 3000's. Had a great time. Clayton is really tight. I don't recommend any K5 try Jojo's Yoyo or Jim and Juanita's, they are both too tight. Many places where trees would have to be cut. Couldn't get through with body damage. 3-stage and Snake pit are now officially closed.

    MY TRAILER I MADE SOME FENDERS OUT OF STEAL. NOW I JUST DRIVE RIGHT OVER THE FENDERS. (I RUN 42/15/15 T.S.L.) J&J TRAIL IS A LITTLE TIGHT I GOT A LOT OF BODY DAMAGE THE LAST RUN I MADE THERE. THE RUN THROUGH THE CREEK WITH THE LARGE ROCKS IS ALOT OF FUN. WELL MAYBE I WILL SEE YA IN OK. ONE DAY.

    Why didn't you guys come this weekend? Had a lot of fun. Maybe you guys will be available for the next run. I didn't know you did Jim & Juanita's. Did you go on Yanush? Eddie and Jason both recieved a lot of breakage.

    We did a trail up at yanush but it wasnt the one fwd/fwd has, we went with Eddie and Marsha and a local friend of theirs.

    What did Eddie break, I bet Marsha was pissed. I thought she was going to kick the crap out him at the mega run.

    After the last trip up there I promised Melonnie we wouldnt go again untill the blazer gets a full cage(still getting the funds together). She got a little worried a couple of times.
    Later
