Hey Luis, got your PM didnt get a chance to respond then.. Yeah, you're definitely more than welcome to join us, we're laying a bit low over the next 2 months though in preparation for the National Rally in Moab, UT in September... but we generally go out to Pineys and Rausch Creek a few times a month. Your 83 sounds nice, definitely want to check it out.

Surprised i did not see you guys, I was down there with my dirt bike. Stopped taking the 90 to the Pine Barrens after the last time I was there. Took my literally months to get all the mud out of the car. Then all the crap in the bearings and the rust.. When I was down there I came across some guys in yotas who were burried over their hoods. Let me know next time, I'll scout the trails on a bike for ya! By the way, did you notice the fires? I was on some tighter trails than you get a 90 down and we came across a bunch of brush fires. Came around another corner and almost got hit by a ranger. We chatted a bit and he said the fires were from lightening strikes and there were a bunch of trucks out trying to put them out.

Cool, yeah that moab that sounds good but not w/ my 83.

If my wife's 93 LWB holds up, I'll put it on a trailer and tow it w/ the 93. Also got wait till my 2yo getts older.

Anyway definitly down w/ the pines, I'll just check the posts.

I bought the 83( was a private import) through LRX from Vegas, it was a desert rat.... rust free for now. Anytime you wanna see it let me know.

The bad thing about Pines is it eats your truck alive. Wheels bearings, starter motors anything under the truck just gets water and sand in it. its kind of like putting your truck in the ocean for an hour and then taking it out, rinse and repeat.

grnthng - We will let you know the next time we go. its a blast. Night runs are the best because its spooky in those woods!

Gotta be in by 9pm or the wife will lock me out.

I'll stay on terra firma and throw you guys a line to pull yous out..... I wanna get dirty but not sink it, I saw those pics - you boys are nutz.

I think I have a psi washer.... some were.

Follow-up Post:

You guys know about waxoyl rite..... expensive, but worth a couple of years if you off-road.

My wife's 93 LWB, I did it 4 years ago.... when I get under it I can srape it off the frame w/ my fingernail and it's soft and oily. Worth the $18.something a can.

Mud breaks off much easier.

Gotta go to sleep, I drive for UPS at nites..... see ya's.
