Just picked up the Navajo with the new top. All I need to do is put the spare tire and spare axels in the back and I'm ready. It's running smooth, only thing is the PS is making a hell of a noise. Hope it wears off with some use.

I should be there early afternoon.

Anyone else planing on getting there early afternoon?

:D:D:D:D:thumbsup:

Don't remind me it been like this for the last couple weeks out there. (Been pulling 28ft double trailers out there) But ya might want to bring a resperator(sp?) too :eek: Dust/Visability has been really bad lately.

You guys should pile in and sleep in FROADER's van .. and pile your rigs on top of the van using the RTI ramp -- to weight it down, so it doesn't get blown over.

Are you talking about the SOHC engine? Cauz the CPS (not the CKP) is cake on the SOHC, I think its on the valve cover, held on by one 10 or 13 mm bolt (I think).

Kitchen sink? how can you forget that?:confused:
Two sinks in the RV...:thumbsup:

Dannyboy, I forgot a key element in your girl's route from San Diego to Truckhaven. SR-67 turns into SR-78 as you travel through Ramona. Just keep going east on Main St. I am also sending you a PM just to make sure you get this.

The ride up to the Calcite mines would not be a problem, but I am not too sure about the rest.
