:D As soon as Rick will be finished with his rock sliders, he will change his sig from 5.5" superlift to 4.5" :p

The rock rails on my WJ were about 12 - 15 lb a piece, and they are just "medium duty". :eek: But they already prooved themselves worth the money and weight several times.

Well, as I did with the bumpers, they are overkill. I would say they weigh about 75 lbs......each.

Once they are on I'll load the truck with my "Trail" stuff and have it weighed. I'm sure it will be scary!:eek:

Hope to see a bunch of you up there.

Getting Close!!

Time is getting close (OK, 6 weeks)! :D

It would be good to know who to look for, when you plan on arriving, how long you plan on staying and where you are staying.:confused:

Update on my rig. I have the passanger side rock slider ready to drill the mounting holes. I hope to get it mounted and started on the drivers side this week.

Gerald, how are yours coming?

LOL

I've been trying to paint them for three weeks to rustproof them but it's been solid rain here and 99% humidity the whole time. Hopefully this weekend it will dry out enough to prep them and put them on.
Check your PM.

Finally found some detailed directions, they can be found on the site tellico4x4.com. Directions to the campsite anyway, hoping I will get to ride down and check it out, unfortunately with my ex stock all I can do is check out other explorers, according to the legend there is only maybe two trails I can ride:( You guys staying at Crawfords?

Gerald,

Is that all you have left, paint? "You don't need no stinking paint!"

Heck no, then I get to install them and I figure that the left side will be a lot of fun, drilling into the framerail with the gastank there and trying to get a drillbit into the upper framerail to drill a mounting hole.

Exploder-1, I don't know yet if we are staying at Crawfords or not. I anticipate hearing from Rick whether our previous plans to stay at Pine Creek Cabins with the CNC4x4 club are still in progress. If nothing comes of that fairly quickly, I am good to go at Crawfords.

It will be around noon on Friday before I can be there (where ever "there" is at this point). You have to remember I'm driving at least 10 hours. My plan is to drive to Greensboro on Thursday night after work, then on to TELLICO Friday morning. I'll probably leave Monday morning.

Anyone who needs it, my cell number is 757-592-0745.
