Hey Kevin, I will only follow you at night, and then only in the wash right next to the camp site....Just kidding, and your truck looks awsome since its been morfed with the Navajo. Hey, why don't you call it the Explor-a-ho?

Installed my No-Slip and Ron's Fix-it-Shop rock guard today.

Rick is right, the only time a vehicle that sustaines a flat tire crashes, is if the driver does some type of improper imput, be it steering or hard braking, or both. I have investigated hundreds of collisions where people say; "I got a flat tire, its not my fault." I just finished up a fatal collision where a woman panicked and slammed on the brakes on her Infinity SUV when it got a left-rear flat. As most of you can guess, it took a right turn since the tires on the right side had much more braking ability, and hit a guardrail.

I should be able to make it out Thursday afternoon to evening. If I show up first, where do you want to camp? I liked that spot by the wash we were at last year. It was good tent camping sand, especially where Leebo was.

Ford brought a 2001 Sport Trac to T-haven before it was ever released to the public :D We got to thrash on it pretty good. It did well, except fro the running boards taking a pounding. With more ground clearance it should do fine.

The crowd that is going...its kinda like hanging out at Leasure World :p , but instead of being in the city, its out at the desert. I think this is the one weekend that leasure world lets them out. They only get so many "free weekends" For those whoe don't know..Leasure World is a gated community (city) that is for only for senior citizens. lol
Yes i'm asking for it..lol:shoot:

everyone is a great group of guys. I joined the group last year for the run by just showing up and falling in line :D Wasn't even part of the website or know any of the people out there. They even let me win a windshield banner that is on my truck (only ad space on my truck) You will have a blast and will find plenty of people to help you if needed.

Yeah, I was just joking about the A-Arms on your's Rick. Also, I plan on talking to them a little more about the Marketing decision. One thing I"m going to do is find out if they have tried mounting the kit on an Explorer. If it bolts right on then hey, I'll let you guys know.

2by2, I'm 24 but still feel and party like I"m 18. The only difference is now I have a little money.

Gopher......

If these trips are what senior living is like, sign me up!! I can't wait to get old and retire so I can go wheelin' every day I feel like it.

The thing that makes these events fun, is there are people of all ages out there with a common interest. Even old guys like Ray Hutchenson seem to have fun. I am only 38, so I feel I can keep up with you kids.
