Trevor,

Who broke their transmission, Trevor C or Trevor G? And does that mean that you got your truck all put together? Sounds like a fun time with the Jeeps. Talk about posers... Sounds like you guys sure showed them! "yeah, all you Jeeps can do is roll your trucks. Watch me blow a transmission!"

Hate to say it but it looks like I'm out for that weekend. A "slight" oversight on my part, I just realized my college buddy is getting married that Monday. And I have to be around for Rehearsal Sunday night and all of the partying in between.

Advice to those getting married: DON'T have you wedding on a designated holiday weekend!

Trevor C. Towed it to my house in Hershey, but have to figure out how to get it to the shop "inexpensively".
I have the rear suspension all done. I fabricated bump stops out of the rubber snubbers one might find on the end of a traction bar, and attached them to the ends of the rear cones, inside the springs.
I am still waiting for a pair of front shocks to finish that project. Haven't addressed the oil leak from the engine and I may receive the 4.10's any week now.

How about a head count for who's available to make Labor Day weekend? If it's too difficult, we can always set it up for another weekend when it fits peoples' schedules better:

Jimmy
Mike H
Tyler (Sun/Mon)
Eric S
Chris vC

Dang Trevor still no ARBs?? At this point I think a different weekend would be better. If I can I'm going to try and go to the MAR workday/s if they are that weekend since I'll be about 30 mins from there.

I could probably make it to a Rauch or Paragon ride in Oct. Even the same weekend as MAR would be OK since I'm not going this year. MAR has gotten just tooo damn crowded for me. I was thinking about going to one of their work weekends but, they just don't work with my schedule. Trevor, just wondering, why did you do your bumpstops like that? I went with the 4 inch daystar ones (big and red) in the stock location using a mount that Steve (Rovertym) made. Did you have to do it that way due to the cones? Just wondering.

I suspect I would only be able to make one day of the holiday weekend anyway.
Still no ARB's.
No problems wit the bump stops; they were only $10 for the pair and I felt like doing a little fabrication work on my own.

Hey boys, haven't been keeping up to much. If you guys figure out a weekend your going wheeling I'd love to tag along. I can offer spare parts and wrenching time in exchange for a seat Now as for Eye Candy, I've got a good one, but mind you she's under 18 so I'll have to look into the PA laws involving that...

Mike, it seems like not too many guys are available Labor Day weekend. Perhaps we should reschedule to a better weekend.

Only conflict I know of would be MAR and that's Oct 1/2.

I should be available any other weekend. What works/doesn't work for the rest of you?

OK well how about we do Labor Day and plan on another trip in Late October say the weekend of the 16th and 17th of Oct. If you can make one or the other Great, if you can make both Spectacular! We can change the day of the Oct trip if it will help others out.



SO! Who is in for Labor Day?

With everything going on at the moment, I have to back out from the Labor Day weekend run. Sorry.
The next thing I am shooting for is MAR.

OK all, Ken, Jimmy and I have been doing some talking, due to the fact it seems like it is just the 3 of us we are thinking about making it a New England outing rather then a Paragon/Raush trip. There are a good number of trails to keep us busy over a 2 day weekend, and I know of a few other guy's that live near by that will go out with us. So unless someone objects Labor Day will be up here, and we will do Paragon in October.
