Also considering a massive subwoofer. Does this place get better satellite reception or 4G I wonder?
Full time operation... Think your popularity rating is going way up!

Trying to get ready for MAR, I need to put in a new water pump. What an experince, couldn't get the nut off, to make a long story short broke the fan, viscous, pulled the radiator. Now hoping the replacements arrive in time for reassembly. My goal is to get the 90 back on the road with new belts, pullies, can, and all running by Thursday. Gonna be a fun week.

My truck is almost ready! Hopefully all that's left now is what I should have done first, get these worn out tires replaced.

Just want to know if I have to pack cooking gear because that means less room for spares... Also, from the veterans, any lists of stuff to bring/not bring from past years? What are the top things that you forgot last year and are bringing this year? (this should be interesting...) Also, I don't have the 110 set up for rock crawling so I'm guessing the novice and intermediate trails are where I'd be spending most of the time but are there other pics available of the different trails from the clean-up weekends? Also, I probably can't get there until Friday afternoon so is there a schedule of events for each day or is there a driver's meeting in the mornings, etc. Really looking forward to this - I just want to be prepared. Thanks! Greg
I like to Soak my undercarriage with wd40. Makes that Mud Removal doable with less high pressure power washing.

So it appears I will making my first MAR appearance in what I believe to be at least 5-6 years. I've been out of the loop since swim meets and bike races took over our life. Both kids want to head up for at least the day on Saturday. I managed to get the D90 out of the garage for the first time in over 1.5 years last week. Looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends!!

If anyone near the Wilmington, DE part of the country is headed this direction and can connect with Ron Brown, he has door tops for me that I purchased some time ago.

See everyone this weekend!

The Thing That Makes WD40 So Great Also Makes The Bulk Of Whatever Clings To The Truck Wash Off With First Splash Of Mud Or water. I think you'd be better protected filling a gallon sprayer of peanut oil and going "nuts" under there.

I like silicone tire shine for this job. Clings like mad, dirt will bond to it and make it stickier, and to get it off you'll need to hit it with pressure and detergent anyhow. Usually smells OK too. Irony is I don't like putting it on the tires, makes it harder to get the rubber clean.

I also like wheeling a truck in October, then surgically cleaning it November, then "waxoyl" it before winter weather starts. I end up doing this almost every year, not because it isn't a permanent solution, but because I keep changing trucks. If I do it prior to wheeling, it's more wear and tear on soft "waxoyl" plus it stays tacky for months so grit gets embedded in it. Regardless of what is done, after action cleanup is a reality that can't be avoided. Yet.

Waxoyl is sticky gooey stuff that gets all over you and your clothes anytime you work underneath.
It won't wash out of clothes and is hard to get off your skin.

Oh boy do I know all about that. I will say, give it a topcoat of something that flashes really fast, like high temp BBQ grill paint, and it helps a little.

A lot can happen in 4 days. I truly hope those meteorologists have their heads up their arse.

Otherwise it's gonna be pretty bloody messy and wet at MAR
