Yeah...still never heard of anyone who wanted the tranny to die though. :D

Glad they look good Bruce. Did you paint them black like you said you were going to do?

Any where in GA will prob be good for me. Ill have a def. answer when the place and date is set.

Is this going to be a X run only? bc my cousin was interested in going to he has a 80's model chevy on 37's

And where ever yall decide on make sure its not to extreme bc im still basically stock as u can see from my sig

I haven't really thought about it lately b/c I've been working on getting stuff ready for my SAS. We still don't have any clue where we are going. :( If we find a place to go, it SHOULD NOT be an X only run, IMO. I think, the more people the better, but I would like there to be a decent amount of Explorers. Plus, if it was an explorer only run, Caleb couldn't go. :D

Hey Charlie, I drive to south Georgia and Tennessee all the time and I NEVER use my overdrive. I burned up 2+ trannys in my Taurus driving in overdrive all the time, and since i had the new tranny installed around 60k in the X I've had no problems with it, and I have nearly 142k on it now. I typically run between 3 and 3.8k RPMs on the interstate and have not noticed any ill effects on the engine or tranny. So come on up!

I saw some pics on lost mountain offroad. I talked to one of the guys on there (Cherokee on 36s) and he said that it is much tougher than the pics look. I wouldn't go out there on 31s and 2" lift when a guy on 36s is telling me it's tough. Not to mention the fact that it's illegal and is a pretty long drive for me.

Yeah, my clutch just went out recently. Had to pay for that and some other stuff. But now I'm finishing up some stuff in the truck (cargo box, etc.) and it should be getting a snorkel pretty soon...and the 9" is almost ready too. Still gotta go buy a d44, but the 9" is about trail ready. :thumbsup:
