Ok, I will be needing time Friday AM to do some basic adjustments on the Zuk's rear end. It should really only take a few hours.. So anyone coming on Thursday, we will have a short tutorial on how to adjust a coil-over supension on Friday AM. Lunch will not be served, it's on your own.. :D
Then, the Zuk is back on the trailer and Tom is a passenger...............just based upon Tom's luck at Truckhaven. :p

I'm thinking that is directed at me :D I'm still trying to figure out what to bring from looking at the sign-up list.

It wasn't directed at you. Just a reminder to anybody who hasn't signed up. You could bring a vegetable such a peas, beans, etc.

Isn't this the truth..

:confused:

Everyone wonders why I am not done in the build, it's because I keep double, triple checking things..

No, I've never broken the same thing twice.

It's always something different each time.

WOW dude I can tell you've been to Chico!!! :D :chug: Well I would have to say that I'm not your traditional poor college student...(have a good remote job from socal...designing irrigation systems on CAD) Picked up an 18pack of da CL from Tonys liquor(11.99 special ;) )...Not sure if ya know where tonys is, but I live right across the street from it...a little bit too convenient heh heh. West sacramento avenue and warner is where I'm at. Anyways yah I can't drink those ultra bottom of the barrel beers unless I'm really in a pinch. For casual everyday drinkin I go for CL...something happened to me this last semester because I used to be all about the bud light. Anyways, last night was Sierra Nevada (4.99 a six pack :thumbsup: ) and a sparks. We had some kegs of High Life, but oh man that shit is pretty bad. Moosehead was the best...enuf about booze haha...

Just got in from outside...brrrrrr...got the old electric weak sauce tcase torn out, and the new one bolted to the tranny. MAN some of those bolts are a PITA to reach...especially when yer damn 13mm CRAP harbor freight wrench blows out on ya!!! I really need to get me a nice set of crapsman one of these days...

So, just gotta bolt up the driveshafts tommorrow, then hook up and install the linkage and shifter and all that nonsense. Found a few parts at the ole' junkyard today with Section525 that complete the install :)

I really would like to get my rear suspension dialed in by the time the trip rolls around, but I don't think ordering Kings and building a crossmember and mounting bumps/limits is going to happen by that time. Oh well, at least I will have the rear fiberglass mounted and lookin pretty for you guys :D All I wanted to do was show up exploderpilot on that jump!!! :confused:

Here is proof that my ass was out in the cold working tonight :p Oh and then there is one of my backup...just in case a tranny fell on me or something LOL
