    Where's that hill at? I'd take a ride out there tomorrow just to try the hill for fun :D


    I may just open up my "garage" and start doing side jobs. I'm sure there's plenty of Fords I can fix to generate some mod money. (Time to install those balljoints yet? :D)

    I was just telling Jay on FB, I'm considering going next weekend. We're supposed to get a ton of snow mid-week, so it'll be crazy back there. If I can convince Josh and Aaron and anyone else who missed this run, we might have a solid group.

    Problem is I don't know where the hill is, so we'd need Tom or someone from today to lead us, if they don't mind doing the same trail back to back weeks.

    Hahaha...don't tempt me. I'll hire the shit out of you to help me put in the superlift kit I want....

    It'd have to be Sunday for me. I'm mentoring a Robotics team from my old highschool- they compete in a yearly Robotics competition and Saturday is our main "build day" during the season (they only have 6 weeks to design and build the robot for the competition). They have to ship the robot on Feb 22 so we only have a few weeks left.


    Lets do it man. Don't know if you know (or remember) but i moved out to Jackson and have a nice 2 car garage now. I have since given up the job at the shop so ALL of my mechanic tools are in my garage.

    Super bowl Sunday? You're NUTS. :D


    I do remember - that sounds like an awesome setup. Truck needs a lot of work right now (new brake lines, shocks, plugs and wires, front diff drained and re-sealed, etc), but after that's all out of the way, I might have some spare cash for the superlift...I will definitely let you know.

    So lets go wheeling in the morning and then head to my house for pizza/beer/football :D

    And if the game sucks, we can install your brake lines, shocks, plugs and wires, and front diff fluid :salute:

    Edit: yes.. i did totally forget that was Superbowl Sunday... nice save though huh?

    lol they can call it what they want. There are things named "mountain" that aren't actual mountains. What's its elevation?

    the hill is called jamima mountain, even thou its pretty steep it is by no means a mountain! we went there during our last trip out and had a blast! i didnt make it up with the open rear and sway bars but i'm dying to take another swing at it!

    i am finally starting to feel better and go back to work tomorrow, so with any hope i can get the trans swapped out and get her on the road again! so what date are you guys gonna shoot for? i know Aaron and i prefer sat runs but whats the deal?

    Awesome, found the GPS coordinates: N 39.711507 and W -74.618489.

    As far as wheeling is concerned, after February im good for either saturdays or sundays... but i have a friend who would come and he works on saturdays.
