The Pumpkin will be sporting a new look. Going hatchless until I can get a snap in canvas cover made for it.

The old hatch was screwed up from catching the upper edge on the trail and pulling it away from the body. The handle on the gate stopped functioning today, and that was the last straw... I'll hang it up in the back garage as wall art :D

I need to add a 3rd brake light now...

Rick a Ranger tailgate fits perfect, you just have to get the latch pins and the hinge in the right spots.

I have spare 2nd Gen LED 3rd brake lights if you want one.

Hmmm, thanks for the idea Steve! I like the idea of having a bench back there!

If you can find a tailgate, I have all the body hardware I'll give you. ;)

If you can send it with Norm and Sue that would be great. I'll find a gate around here.:thumbsup:

No problem Steve. I'm not in any hurry.

----------------

I almost forgot, there hasn't been any discussion of a pot luck yet. Should we bring the Kugle as usual??

...Bump me to Doubtful..:(

Explorer is down needing heads and gaskets so hoping to do that before Moab...

I've been flogging the Ranger as a work truck, highway traveller, and a chase vehicle..

:( Really hope you can make it... but wouldn't ask you to wheel your work truck, so how about bring the Ranger, park it and RIDE ALONG :)

Hope everyone else who can go will and if anyone is on the fence... just imagine what gas prices might be in a few months.

So I finally got over the new car (caviar, four star) daydream, decided the Tacoma isn't that special and spent a belated few hours quality time in the garage with the Explorer.

End result was hacking a roll of dirt cheap eBay 5630 LEDs, some 3M auto tape and (drum roll...) FISH TANK HOSE ! ! into . . .

under-hood lighting :

and

front rock lights!

Rock lights are 5630 strips cut to size, stuffed into aquarium tubing and sealed with silicon! Ridiculously cheap and 100% waterproof.



Night run anyone?

Coming out Friday morning sometime. Been sick the past week so I hope I'm on the down side of it. Still haven't got a spare for the ranger so I'll be in the DD, at least I can bring out more firewood:D

As soon as we pick up the motor home, this is going in the storage compartment, don't want a tree on the roof for 150 miles. Not much room in the camper for more trees otherwise I would go shopping for a bunch

Ran to OC this morning to get a tire so the ranger is back in business. It's a 37" well worn General but perfect for a spare. See you guys out there Friday morning sometime :thumbsup:
