I'm ready :bounce: :bounce:

Finally fixed my busted U-joint from last weekends run, so I got my first classes in tearing down my hubs/spindles, and u-joint replacement. And now I've got spares :)

My brother has been busy all day putting in his Christmas present. A Rubicon NP241 T-case, 4:1 ratio. He got to do a good bit of :hammer: to get it to fit. So he should be ready to have fun also :)

We have a Porta Potti that we would like to give away to anyone who is interested. It's self contained, has two tanks one for fresh water and one for black water. Not sure how many gallons.

It's only been on one camping trip, it's been cleaned, and it's ready to go... It's free to the first person who wants it. I thought that Truck Haven would be a good place to give it away since there are no toilet facilites around :D

hmm.. wood!

I picked up a full bed of wood. I would like to pass around a donation cup at the potluck to help pay for this. The Superduty finally rides better, and it's not even on the overloads yet.

We should *NOT* be running out of firewood, unless Rick's pyro habits get out of hand.

RangerX - I couldn't find any christmas trees. So mark them off the list for me.

You're the best!!

I'm only going to bring it if someone wants it. It holds a few gallons. It lasted for 2 people, 1 weekend with out a problem.

This is something you would leave at camp, not to take with :p

Thanks.

There's always a need for firewood at Truckhaven. We don't want the sunday night fire to be scavenged again this year, right?

OKay well its looking good, no sliders though for me so I will try to avoid smashing up my rockers....I know most people who are getting ready for sliders end up smashing their rockers right before they finally get some, I will try to end this cliche.


This weekend I got the Superrunner steering kit installed, piece of cake, well worth it too!!!
Went down to Bills house on Sunday and helped him replace all his front end U joints, bearings, and brake pads. So we should be good to go!!!

I am a little crammed for room in my truck, 2 people (my friend Mike may be joining me) plus camping gear in a BII + 33" spare in back = not much room :)
But I will have a grill, food, and camping gear. I will pitch in for the wood and if I can think of something for the potluck between now and Thursday I will bring it.....

Bill and I should arrive Friday evening, should be leaving Carlsbad around 3:30-4

Heh Heh. very true. Though the soft dirt out at Truckhaven is usually very forgiving on rockers (and body panels). Of course now that I said that you'll end up finding the largest rock out there hidden under 1/2" of dirt to chew them up on :p

Yes, the weather has been real nice down here lately, kind of cold at night but that is what the bonfires are for!! I can't wait for this trip. Doing some last minute stuff this week, then its off to Truckhaven. If I wasn't taking my daughter, I would have left already since I have the whole week off. We will be out late Friday afternoon, hopefully before dark.

Stuff I did or am doing this week:
New battery.
Beef up the sliders.
Tried out my new rear double shock setup, no more body roll on off-camber stuff.
Mounted my GPS receiver.
Get my on-board air setup.
Try to wax the scratches out from Los Coyotes.
Weld on new double propane tank mount to trailer.
Try to talk the Wife into letting me take Sarah out of school on Friday so we can come out Thursday night (not gonna happen).

Brian, try telling the wife that you'll go to the school and personally get her school/homework for Friday. I have used this tactic successfully in the past with my wife.
