Folks, what's wrong with this picture?

Yup, that's right, the fire is too SMALL!

Looks like I will be out late Friday afternoon. We are leaving Tucson in the AM and then have to pick up my dad's camper in Gilbert. We will hop on I-10 and get there when we can!

Who's heading up the beginners run this year? I'll opt to head up the rear or middle of the pack.

I'll be leaving Friday around 10:30am from Riverside if anyone wants to caravan.

I am not really sure which group I will be traveling with. As I dont have my 4.56 gears in the rear yet. So I will still have matching front and rear gears (still have 4wd:) ). Bad thing is I only have 3.73 gears.

Only one week till Truck Haven. (Happy Dance)

Well unfortunatly for me (and Char) I'm not going to be able to go this year. The new house put a major hurt on the $$ flow and I need a new set of tires along with other maintenance.
I will be in CA. all week for work and depending on when I get headed home I may stop by Thurs or Fri night to hang out and party a bit.
How well do you think the Camry will do there???
I just may find out.:D

If I don't see ya there have fun.

Felix so you did the 4.56 in the back already in prep for a SAS? Locked?
Man all you need is a 4.56 front pig to bolt onto your TTB just for T haven.....seems alot of people have been selling them recently (Solid axle swap trend)...

I am still in the process of setting up the 4.56 gears. My wife bought me a spare 8.8" out of a 91 Ex. So, it is tore down in the garage. It has the trac-loc crap so I cant put a lunch-box in it nor can I afford the detroit at this time.

After Truck Haven I will install the new rear axle, and should have my D44 on order the end of January or first on February. I am getting that axle with 4.56 and trac-loc fully rebuilt and shipped to my door. That should help me out alot. Less build time.

See you in the dirt.

My Dad, Mom, Lil sis are coming out Friday night. They we're gonna bring my dads zuki, but it will not be done in time. So there just gonna bring the truck and trailer and hang out with us. They have been informed about the pot luck and bring something (i belive a casorol) There also bringing wood. My dad truck is SD F-250 4x4 runing BFG's equal to 32's So he may go on the light stuff with us. If there's any problem with this let me know. I told my dad about it and he got all excited and wanted to come and I didn't see a problem. :rolleyes:
