I Missed something.

Rick and Char, Thanks for everything. I enjoyed the Potluck and the Christmas tree burning.

Since I spent most of the time behind other vehicles I included the photo of the backside of the first line up.

J**P Gary, Your dog Pepper is a cool dog. I enjoyed him around camp and seeing him riding in the back of the bumping and rocking jeep. But I believe that had he not given you a head start up Waterfall he would have beat you big time. Photo in action with paws off the ground attached.

We found a Great sign out there that just seemed so inviting ," Rough Road".

Hope to see you all again.

Awesome! Thats my favorite shot, the one with Pepper flying up the hill like he forgot his Kibbles N Bitz. Thanks for posting them.

Josh, it was great meeting you, Its great to have people that I don't have to twist there arm to try something stupid with me. That hole was huge, That and the one we both fell in right before your radiator blew, awesome!

Dave, nice having you ride along, always nice to have a navigator.

Great time, thanks for having the token Jeep guy, great time as always with you guys, Can't wait til Moab next?!?!

No Carnage , except the F-150 is make a noise in the right front brake area. I think I got a small rock stuck in the caliper or in one of the drilled rotor holes (the reason why I don't have drilled & slotted rotors on the Ex:rolleyes:)


Well took a look at the 150 today and it looks like the passenger front bearing is toast. Enough to the point the wheel wobbles like it is just finger tight lugs. :( Bearings are pressed into the rotor, but I have a spare because this is the second time this has happen:mad:

Yeah, thanks for letting me ride along. I'm glad we didn't get our asses kicked on the night run:p:(inside joke)

I feel sorry for your dog sliding around in the back though, Somewhere i've seen a harness type deal that keeps dogs from sliding around or even ejecting from the vehicle.

Was able to finally find a new bearing through Rock Auto. Old one pressed right out & threw the new one in. Put the rotor back on, and then noticed the wheel was missing all of it weights. I remember hearing a loud noise right under the truck after leaving truckhaven. I'm thinking now it was the wheel weights and the weightless wheel + 180 mile trip towing a trailer took out the bearing. :rolleyes: Now that I can get bearings for this thing, I have a full spare set of rotors from the front.:D Anyway all back together and good as new.
