    what days? i wanna see if any pics of you are on facebook. :)

    just keep rubbing it in jds face :)
    if i had tried 4x4 when we were down there i wouldve made it too. corolla was easy both times ive went in 4x4



    i think im back to installing the rough country lift. the free d44 is passenger side drop, i heard 'free d44' and got so excited i didnt even notice it :/
    it would take to much work to make it drivers drop and rebuilt it and convert the hubs so its going on craigslist

    Your problem with setting up camping once is that the best places to camp are near the trail head. The trail end is not very close to the trail head, at least a 30-minute ride. If that is not a problem, then you have a solution.

    I have not talked to my buddy spike, he may be interested in going up on Friday and camping on his property. I will try to talk to him this weekend and get him to respond to this thread.

    Anyways, I'm for sure in. I took off and so did the GF, we'll definitely be going so long as it's still happening. Might have to bum some gas money off her but we'll see.. :D:p:

    Unclemeat are you and FishFood riding up there together? If so, can I get in on this convoy?
