    Truck Haven MLK 2018

    I was hoping to make this run but it's looking doubtful. Among other things two bolts suddenly broke on the Superlift torsion bar drop bracket last week. All while pulling into a grocery store. I fixed it but I am worried about all the other Superlift bolts so will be slowly replacing the others.

    Truck Haven MLK 2017 Jan 13 - 15

    I am up for another weekend, though unfortunately in the Spring my weekends can be tough, but I will make it work if I can. If nothing sooner maybe shoot for around Easter, April 16?

    Chop, Cut, Rebuild: DB_1's Ranger...again

    Sorry to hear this Dave, your truck has been a staple rig on the runs since I have been going and always fun to watch. Is there something major wrong with it right now, or just lots of little stuff? I would love to buy it but have to keep feeding my kids for now.

    How about President's Day weekend? February 18.

    Truck Haven MLK 2017 Jan 13 - 15

    I've done Miller Jeep a few times. It's a fun and scenic run but easily doable in a slightly modified rig so the SAS vehicles would be bored. There also are not any other fun trail options up that way. I would love to try Big Bear again but Truckhaven is more central for those coming from out...

    Truck Haven MLK 2017 Jan 13 - 15

    Too bad but makes sense. Weather forecast looked good out there. The extra time will give me time to tweak and fix a few more things I hope. I am flexible on the dates and will try and get the Friday off for whichever weekend is decided.

    Truck Haven MLK 2017 Jan 13 - 15

    Oh man. Sorry to hear so few (2 or 3?) can make it. Does it make sense to postpone the trip? No holiday weekends for awhile but maybe we can pick a weekend in the next couple of months for when more can make it out.

    I am in. Got all of the major problems with my truck worked out.

    Just saw this. Really enjoyed it. Thanks, Rick!

    Truck Haven MLK 2017 Jan 13 - 15

    I am working to make this trip Saturday and Sunday nights. I have several problems with the explorer, including a busted transmission band (likely rebuild needed), bad axles and tie rods that may keep away but I will see if I can get them all worked out next week.

    Maybe do the exact same thing tomorrow.

    Truckhaven 20th Anniversary Run MLK Weekend Jan. 15-17

    Great pics. My son Nathan who came with me for the first time last year just saw the pics and said, "Dad, why didn't we skip my soccer game, I love truckhaven, all the people we know were there!"

    Truckhaven 20th Anniversary Run MLK Weekend Jan. 15-17

    That mounted camera should give some great pics. Is that video? I am motivated to fix my stripped tie rods and get out there for the next trip. And clear the damn calendar

    Wish I was there. Lets see some trail pics!

    Truckhaven 20th Anniversary Run MLK Weekend Jan. 15-17

    I was hoping to be able to make it out by Saturday morning but it is seeming more and more unlikely now. Try as I do to keep this weekend free it always seems to fill up. Have fun out there and be safe as always!

    Truck Haven Jan 16-18

    Great trip as usual. Just too short as usual. Good to see some of the familiar faces but also met some new faces which is nice to see. The limit straps I installed worked too well, maybe I need longer ones. I didn't break a CV but I could really tell the difference of lost travel and...

    Sorry to hear that Zukman. Those pics make me jealous, Rick. Hoping to be there tomorrow evening.

    My brother is interested in your truck if it's still available. Let me know.

    Truck Haven Jan 16-18

    I likely won't be there until early Saturday morning. Does anyone have suggestions for the best spot to buy firewood locally?

    Truck Haven Jan 16-18

    At this point I am planning on going. Hopefully Friday night to Sunday morning. My truck is running OK and I only need to install limit straps to stop the all too frequent snapping CV axle.

    Truck Haven MLK 2014 Jan 18-20

    Looks like a great trip with a good group and good weather. Sorry i had to miss it. Rick, the helicopter video looks great. And Brian congrats on getting the SAS done finally.

    Truck Haven MLK 2014 Jan 18-20

    Doesn't look good for me to make it this trip unfortunately. Hopefully there will be one more trip before summer that I can make. Have fun, be safe and take lots of pics all. And thanks for the congrats.

    Truck Haven MLK 2014 Jan 18-20

    I am trying to make it again this year but not sure yet if I can swing it. It will be a last minute decision. The wife had another baby girl on Nov 22 so we are playing catch-up with everything thing else since then. Good thing is that the explorer is all in one piece again.

    Truck Haven MLK '13 Photos and Video

    Repair will likely be my first option. I just need to find someone around that knows what they're doing when welding. And yes going SAS would be ideal, but for the money I think I would rather repair my axle and buy something I can sleep in at Truckhaven besides a crummy tent. And yes, that's a...

    Truck Haven MLK '13 Photos and Video

    Had a great trip as usual. Group was small but fun and the potluck turned out to be awesome. Unfortunately, my axle break wasn't just another $80 IFS axle break. My housing cracked clean through. Now I need to decide if I want to put another stock housing in or go for something like a...

    2013 Truck Haven Potluck

    Since it will be cold I am bringing Italian meatball sausage stew.

    2013 Truck Haven MLK Weekend Explorer Ranger run Jan 19-20

    We wont be there until Saturday morning. Too busy at work. I'll be there by 9:00 am so I can setup and not miss the group leaving for the run.

    2013 Truck Haven MLK Weekend Explorer Ranger run Jan 19-20

    I am IN at this point. I have new Falken tires (which I am not overly happy with) that I need to get dirty. I will sign up on the potluck asap. I am planning on being there on Friday before the sun is gone and staying till Sunday morning.

    2012 Truckhaven Rock Run Oct. 27 -28

    Doubtful I can make this trip, but I sure would love to. My truck has been in one piece for too long.

    Truck Haven 2011 January 15-16 MLK Weekend

    Good trip, and the wind didn't show so tent camping was fine. Not many problems or damage on the runs but we still wheeled pretty hard. The potluck was great, and the deep fried turkeys and fries were a first for me. My brothers took video so when I get it from them I will post up. Hope to see...

    Truck Haven 2011 January 15-16 MLK Weekend

    Yikes! This does not bode well tonight for tent campers. Oh well its all part of the experience...another night at Truckhaven with my tent being pushed down within 3 inches from my face.

    Truck Haven 2011 January 15-16 MLK Weekend

    Crap! I didn't realize this run was next weekend. I am planning to make it out Friday night....and maybe Saturday night. I imagine one or more of my brothers will be coming out too. I will sign up for the potluck asap.

    Return from Mudhaven run Jan 2010

    Good job Dave in helping Cyber out. I got back last night without drama even with only 3 brakes. Just took it slow. Thanks to RockRanger, Maniak and Cyber for helping out with the broken brake line. Excellent weather out there, lots of sun but in the 60's. It was fun to be the first...

    Truckhaven 2010 Jan 23-24 Discussion

    I'll be coming out. Just not sure about tonight or tomorrow morning because the forecast says rain tonight and we are in tents. Haven't been to that camping spot before Brian but I am sure we'll find it.

    Truckhaven 2010 Jan 23-24 Discussion

    Are we camping on the Bluff or in the wash? Hard to say which might be better as far as mud goes since they both have low spots, but from the weather radar I was watching it looks like Truckhaven has and is getting dumped on..

    Truckhaven Potluck Dinner Sign Up

    I'll bring Polish sausage and some other non meat dish like potato salad, macaroni salad, or quiche.

    Truckhaven 2010 Jan 23-24 Discussion

    Count me in + 2 or 3 of my brothers. I finally just had the transmission rebuilt so aside from a few other things I need to do, tie rods and ball joints, I should be good. I haven't been 4x4ing since Truckhaven last year!

    Return from Big Bear Camp & Crawl

    I was thinking, "this is the best pic of IFS flex I have ever see, why doesn't mine do this." Then I see a shackle and talk of your SAS. Nice looking "stealth" rig.

    July 10-12 Camp n' Crawl in Big Bear

    Haven't been on in awhile and too bad I missed this trip. Got laid off and lost my email but I am employed again now and getting life back to more normal. I've been waiting to go back to Big Bear but can't do it next weekend. I'll await the pics.
