      hey michigan friends. does anyone have an extra set of 16" rims laying around that would work on my 2nd gen? i want to get 35x12.5x15 tires possibly. but i dont want to spend 1000+ on rims and tires only to find out that they rub way too much. so i want to buy a crappy set off craigslist ($100.00) mount them up and see what happens.
      but i cant find any 5x4.5 16x8 inch rims that fit my truck that arent 600+

      if you have them i could pick them up from you and return

      Wish I could help, but all I have laying around the barn are 15" rims and we don't have any at the shop. I'll keep my eyes open though.

      Update.
      Tylers truck has a bad rear axle so he's out
      Wes is leaving the state on that day so he's out

      Brandon and I are still committed
      Jesse is a possibility
      Mickey is a possibility

      Kerry, Ill still be there even if everyone backs out lol

      I think this is the way it always works right?
      Jay and I both plan on being there as well. Our buddy Aaron may be there with his WJ as well. Hoping for a great day!

      I invited a few members from RRORC as well. Not sure if they will be able to make it, but the run they had scheduled for opening day had to be cancelled so i threw this run out there for them

      I'll be down at the shop tomorrow. I'll chat with Jay and Aaron and find out the plan. Usually we get there right around opening. Wouldn't be an issue to go play a couple hours then meet back up in the lot.

      Cool. And yeah no problem with that. Any ideas on where I could get a flag? I mocked up a flag mount with a borrowed flag a while back, but if it doesn't work for the new flag, does anybody know a cheap and easy mount? I do have front tow hooks that I could rig it to

      I have extra flags, I could bring one along. If you'd rather buy one they sell them at Bundy for $20 I believe. All you need to mount them is a bracket with a hole big entity for a 1/2" bolt to fit through. A lot of people mount them right behind their tow hook.

      I might have to back out. I have developed a nifty little rumble from the left front when turning right. It sounds more like a tire rub than a bearing noise, but i did put a real cheap bearing in it back in october.

      Hey guys. So a little update
      I'm finally about to leave the house after being in the hospital for 7 days with a ruptured appendix. I do not think I will be able to come
      I can not lift over 30 pounds for 2 months so I am practically helpless if anything that breaks.

      Sorry guys. Next run in may I am in! Plus I can't even lift my new tires to put them on.

      i feel horrible... i really really want to go. hey maybe i can just go an ride with you?
      i just dont think i can take my truck and reliably need to do anything. i mean i cant even medically cleared to lift over 35 lbs for 4-6 weeks. so would be kinda hard to change even a simple tire!

      My possibly failing bearing isnt gonna stop me at this point, after Moab im gonna part the POS out anyway, and as soon as the snow stops its gonna get parked. So as long as i dont have to work ill be there.

      Is this the sort of thing I could bring a bone stock truck out to?
      I have a 99EB AWD, bone stock. It has the running boards, no flag mount, no skid plates or anything. The only thing I've changed on it are the tires; I have Firestone Destination A/Ts on it.

      I have never taken a vehicle off-roading before so I don't know the first thing about it.

      You could get to certain areas there, but a lot of the trails would be too much. I'd say your best bet is to come to one of these events and ride along with someone and get a feel for the sport. Be ready to become addicted.

      Looks like I am out, traveling for work. Scheduled to be gone until next Tuesday, but hoping to wrap up early and get back before the weekend. I'll let everyone know if changes.
