Yup, though in the Rangie -- The 90 got the myoptimaisapieceofshit virus that the rangie had, no longer taking a charge. Will be going to costco over the weekend. These goddamned optimas are going to be the death of me -- 3 dead in 2 months.

such a critic!

sure, though I am looking to trade up to a winch mount version so I might be loathe to drill it. it is "like new" at the moment. well it look that way in the dark. I have yet to see this thing in daylight...

I've had the front plate zip tied onto the front of the defender for . . . 9 years now. When I got the rangie and saw the brilliance of actually bolting it on there I was gobsmacked. Though not enough to hard mount the defender's yet . . .

Wouldn't miss it for anything. Been going since 2001. Ok I missed '05.

I'm going up a week early so Mr. Browne can lay healing hands on my 109's rear x-member.

Buy some extra wool socks and go. It's a great event that has only gotten better. In fact it is one of my favorite events.

Tony- I stopped using plastic to hold front plates on when I lost one in the beaver damn at the OVLR birthday party. That was back in 97 or so. It floated downstream and was never seen again.

Charles- Its a 91.

Says the guy with the '84 110 . . . Dave, '91 RRCs are timeless -- don't listen to the Jamaican Taxi Driver.

Ok, so the rangies are so nineties then. Bring the bloody 109.

But I bet neither of you have Greg's nuts in a zip lock bag in the back of your truck now do you? I'm kind of enjoying it too. I'll show you at happy hour.

Make room in the 101 for your tires, or we'll need to swing by your storage, but I have them in the back too.

I know there is an ice storm on the way, but I didn't think we'd see hell freeze over!

Plenty of room, and the garage is on the way to Jay's. I have been driving the 101 around the block every night.

She's SSSSSSLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!

Hey, so couple things

1. What happened to Robbie?
2. It seems I was too busy fondling Greg's nuts to remember Tony's balls.
3. Tony, what's the brand of that skid guard you gave me? I broke out the BFH today and straightened her nicely, only to realize I need different brackets for Janey since she's LHD. If they are cheap I'll buy some, otherwise will take a stab at making some.
4. When's the next one? Thinking about having a re-gear party at my place soon - maybe we can extend it into a beer, dinner and hot tub party after.
