Did you replace the track rod on Jorge's truck yet? Did you figure out where you're camping and who's coming with?

If guys are up for it, I think a photo shoot at noon on Sat at the Pond works best. Maybe we can get someone with a snorkel try to replicate the Wrangler move in PA??

It's starting to look "unpromising" now...I hope I can still get there.

Doh! Well, I don't have time. Considering a day trip maybe, and If I do I'll let you know (if you want to hitch a ride).

Yeah. Well Trevor has offered to give me a ride. So I'm thinking of taking him up on it.

Im still leaving on Fri morning from the Edison NJ area at about 4am. Should be a long ride but have the Ipod all ready to go..

Ps. with the Tdi, it looks like I will only have to make one fuel stop. I have been getting 240 miles out of the 12 gal tank I know all U V8 guys are ready to throw up right now...lol

only 240 miles? somethings wrong - I generally get over 330 miles on my 15 gallon tank - takes about 14 gallons of diesel to top up after the needle gets into the E-zone. I usually hit 200 miles on the trip right about the halfway mark on the fuel gauge.

basically stock - 235/85R16 tires, 3.54 gears, 1.4 Transfer case and a lot of around town running - not sure if mileage will increase or decrease on a high speed (65-70mph) long freeway run -

Randy, you won't be the only silver 90 there. You should see this guy , that crazy Canadien too. However, he's just polished aluminum....

He was at Solihull and told us he'd be at MAR (he took the furthest trip award from me... ). I think his name was Kevin.

If that truck was at MAR last year I saw it and just stared at it for a while, then I noticed legs sticking out from under it...it's awful nice.
