We'll be ready :D

Good News and Bad News for me

The good news is that my truck will be rolling in the next couple days. The axle swap is only waiting on some mods to my radius arms that are at the machine shop, and securing a trac bar bracket a little better. I got ahold of a welder over the weekend and my roommate built the crossmember I designed. Everything is looking great and IT'S GOING TO BE BIG! Travel should be good considering the radius arms are mounting where the old transfer case skid plate was mounted. I've got all the DOM I need to make my steering so that will be done within a couple hours of work some night this week.

Rick, you're more than welcome to stop by and take a peek, maybe we can do a mini-run before I get my gears in (ya know 2wd) just to test run the suspension. I'd like your advice on shocks (resivoir style) and maybe a RAM assisted steering.
Now the bad news,
I've had a job opportunity jump up that could be VERY GOOD in the long run, but it's back in Wisconsin and I'll most likely be heading back there mid March. I'm totally rattled about moving back, everything I like (year-round wakeboarding, women, kick @ss wheeling) is in AZ, but the job is back East. Maybe I could commute!

Man I would like to go, but I don't think I can do Moab and AZ this year at least not so close together. So I guess I'll just do Moab. I need one of those teleporters from Star Trek so I can attend more trips out of Texas.

You're welcome to join us down here anytime Michael. We're good to go 9 months out of the year. Forget the summer :D

Iowa only has 5" lift allowed on their lift laws. Between my two vehicles combined I'm breaking the laws by about 11 inches. Looks like I should stay in Phoenix. Sheesh 21" of lift between my two trucks!!!

It's looking like I'll stay out west as of right now!!! I'm taking a vacation to wheel this whole trip if I stay!

You're still more than welcome to stop by and see the finishing touches of setting up the axle. I'll probably be working on it Sunday. I saw on another thread you were on 101 in Scottsdale the other day. Perhaps you could venture to the East side again if you're bored.

I mean, the :rolleyes: before hurt my feelings (j/k) and now that I'm staying I want to get ready to wheel before it gets to be 167 degrees at night!!!

We haven't set up the runs yet. Keep an eye on this thread and once we decide exactly where each group is going we can give you a better idea.
