introducing myself. from kent, wa. got a b2, more explorer now then b2. still got a lot of work to make her trail worthy otherwise I totally would have gone to the naches with yall in sept. looks like a blast! super jealous. my 4.0 swap still has some kinks that I have to work on before I drive that far. temp gauge isn't working, like what albino did with your gauge in your build thread. may end up doing that instead of messing more with the wiring. has a funny low idle on first start up that I have to sort out. ac needs to be fixed, I know can live without, but I get hot! lol then there's still the regear I need due to the auto tranny and funky shift points. first vehicle ive ever worked on so will take time to go through it all. anyway, wanted to intro myself and hopefully one day ill be able to hit the trails with yall. all the best and have fun at naches!
I have a complete 5 spd set up if you want toditch the auto $300
Alaskan Explorer reporting in!
Figured since I joined the group I'd introduce myself. My name is Josh and I live in Centralia. I work out of Tumwater for a two way radio communications company. Rig specs are in my sig
Hope you guys don't mind a stock rig in progress!
Stick around and it won't be stock for long.
Are you looking for a lift kit?
I will be looking here soon, gotta get the funds in order. My plan is to go mild on the lift with the plan to trim and fit 33 (possibly 35's) inch tires.
I am thinking of heading up to scale shack on Saturday afternoon after I get off work, hoping to see a little more snow there than last weekend
Have a work get together @2pm going til the eveing :thumbdwn:
Christmas tree run for us
Are we planning any outings that are a bit farther out? Something we can get on the calendar now.
Anyone down for a "stock rig friendly" run in Jan?
I have been hoping for some snow but that has not happen yet.
Abby has an something going on with the left front drive train. I'm headed to Kevin's shop Wednesday to pull the front pumpkin and see what we can see.
Getting close to a camp n wheel trip to Tahuya though
Keep me posted as I will need a shack down run for the new rig and kiddos
Pretty sure I need to sale my truck camper and get a motorhome again before next spring.
Why? Need more room?
Well most likely I'd be down for a day trip but keep my posted. I'm itchin to take my rig out and see how it does in stock form. Gotta get that baseline to start from ya know
Tahuya would be a great place to start. Thats where I did my first run, with Jrgaylor none the less
Yes, I will know for sure after a shake down run
I was looking at some of those old threads a few weeks ago
Yeah I've been to tahuya, elbe, moon rocks, funny rocks, ravens roost, straddleline (only for a short bit never been on "real" trails there)
So I'm a bit familiar with the trails here in WA. I just won't go hit them alone (4x4 101...lol) no matter how "easy" they might be.
Do you know Dave smith?
I know of a Dave Smith, but I doubt they're the same person.
you look familiar and thought maybe you was a friend of my neighbor
