We usually are out there for new years. Summers are way to hot. Usually it is Thanksgiving, new years, Annual run, TDS first weekend in march, and then sometimes one or two more runs in the winter.

The night pic is sweet man!

Wow what a drive that was. But an AWESOME trip!!! I almost didn't come out but I'm sure glad I did. Yesterday I went on the stocker run to warm up and have some fun and make sure the truck was up to the challenge. Thanks to Brian and Ray for touring us all around out there! Then last night I went on the night run with the guys...haha wow that was pretty fun and intense! I managed to make it through with only running into a wall with my front bumper, punching a hole in my taillight, and flopping over against a bank on the passenger side door. Window still goes up and down just fine and it closes perfectly so I'm fine with that! Oh yah forgot...on the way back from the stocker run I was looking in my mirrors to make sure I wasn't cutting anyone off and managed to run into a pretty good sized boulder with the driver's tire...launched that side in the air a little and stopped us. It still ran fine and the alignment wasn't too bad for our 650 mile drive home tonight but the rear radius arm mount is bent in pretty bad. Now I have to build a crossmember for it and repair that puppy.

Anyways I know Section525 has some good pics and video that him and my buddy Phil were taking so hopefully we will see more of those soon. Thanks to everyone for touring me around and to Rick and Char for hosting the run/potluck!! Got me a compressor now! :D

OK time to stop rambling and take a shower :)

EXPLODERPILOT- wazzzup man I thought you would be out there!!! You totally missed out on some sweet times dude, although people were camped in front of your jump :rolleyes: I didn't have anybody to run down the washes with!!! See you next time! :cool: :chug: :smoke:

I think explorer2x4 ripped the plastic trim piece off under the doors and a small tweak in his exhaust pipe. Not sure if anyone else did or not.

Had a great time out there just too short as usual, definitely the best so far for me in truckhaven. Damage to the truck wasnt too bad, just cosmetic and easily fixable. And the new tcase pulled like a champ as opposed to the old 4405.

Thanks to Rick and Char for coordinating the run, to tdavis, rockranger and others for leading the runs, Stic-o for the tranny fluid so I could get up the steep stuff, and everyone for bringing some killer potluck food. Good to see all the familiar faces out there.


Here are a few short videos and some pics (hopefully they wont be too small)

JoshS bent the crap out of his radius arm mount on the stocker run.
