I killed one of my tires this weekend when I was out wheelin. I hope I can replace it by Truckhaven or else I may not make it. If any local guys have some 31X10.5s they want to get rid of for little $ let me know. I was so proud of my X, it did stuff I never thought it would do. The Jeepers were amazed that I was even there. (Until I was parked at the side of the road doing some repairs.) I LOVE THIS X. :bounce:

Ok, just bought a CB, will set up tow points. Will try to purchase Qwik Connects for my front and rear sway bar.

OFFROADKC, or anyone else, can someone email quick directions on how to do a torsion twist and install the warrior shackels, or send me a link if it's already on the web. It will be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks,
Ron

No Tom Davis??

I guess you got a house??

Tom, can you map out the route to the public park with the showers and send it to me?? Or just tell me how to get there, and I'll map it out. Went looking for them last time, only found a public bathroom, but no showers. You can e-mail me if you want
"BRSKennedy@Juno.com".

eXploder, if you have tow points front and rear, and sway bar disconnects, you should do alright.

I hope these pictures help you understand how to do it.

Yes.

If I remember correctly, it's the public pool. Was there a pool where you found the bathrooms at?

When we was there, portions of it was locked down.

HEY GUYS!!!

Thanks for ALL the help. I ordered the shackles from Desert Rat ($53.00 inc. shipping to So Ca). I will try to do the install next weekend. All the links have been very helpful, I want to thank you guys for taking the time to write about them and take pictures. Hopefully by this summer I can return the favior when I buy the 4" Trailmaster Suspension and do the install.

So when is evenyone getting there? I want to get there EARLY Friday if not Thursday afternoon, but I don't want to be alone, and set up camp somewhere that no one else will be.

Also, does anyone have the GPS coordinates to the Truck Haven turnoff from the main road, that way I don't miss it. =(

Thanks,
Ron

I know I already posted this on the potluck board but I need someone to bring a second crock pot for her beans. If you liked the MAC salad last year, you will expell gas with a smile over these baked beans. They are great. If anyone has a crock pot they can bring I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
