    Between the 2 of you, you need to rent a fuel truck to follow you around.

    Took the S-10 out for another shakedown run this afternoon. The CPS is fine, but I managed to cut a sidewall....

    Hooray!

    Power steering pump just went out on the Tahoe. Nothing like last minute fixes. :doah:And judging from this thread, it seems to be contagious.

    Shouldn't you be leaving soon? And it's better to have it to bad where it is easy to work on.

    Yep, leaving early Saturday morning. And I agree! Glade it happened here, and not in the middle of nowhere. Just makes for an even more hectic week to get ready.

    Always best to beat the crap out of your rig before you go.

    I hadn't even driven the S-10 for 6 months, I've been beating/building on the Silverado.

    The power steering system is a little whiny, but I have a spare pump and tools that will be coming with me if there are any issues.

    I picked up some tires, so I'm good now. We head towards Moab on Friday as soon as we can get off work.
