that's ok, cause we got 2 acres of land, and like i said, if we get too loud at night, or during the day, my neighbors will come over to join in. we've known them for over 20 years so it's just another day when we have a party, or a stripped truck in the front yard. lol

I'd personally prefer later in April so I can maybe get some things done on my rig, but I'll come check it out either way. Sounds like a great resource to have - thanks for volunteering the shop!

I haven't take the poll cause there's no option for "any of the above". I'll be there to hang out, lend a hand and learn something. I don't know if I'll have any projects needing to be done till it get's closer.

As for HOW north, I have a place and some neighbors I wouldn't mind pissing off a little. I can't do the 24 truck thing, and I'm short on tools/equipment etc.. but I have the space if it can be used.

it's been done, I've posted the info on WFTW. so hopefully we'll be able to start meeting some of these other people soon

and so far as it stands, i'm thinkin the 12 is going to be the date for this. but it's not set in stone yet, determination will be made after this weekend.

hey just to let you all know, so far on the WFTW site, there has only been 12 people to view the post about this, and not a single person has replied, so i'm thinking we probably won't really see anyone outside the club for the HOW. if they show up or not, i don't care either way. the way i see it, the more the marrier. we got more than enough space here. plus my parents are planning on taking out their RV for that weekend, so HELL YEAH.

i may have a front diff and rear axle to install as of those dates... but im not 100% positive yet.

I have the diff, and the axle, it just depends on if i get it installed before the SHOW or not.

hey man, i sent you a PM about this

hey everyone, since i was bored i decided to rip apart my stock locker and change the diff fluid. unfortunately when i drained the diff fluid, i found a few chunks of metal and the fluid had frozen chunks in it as well. i figure since it's not making any noise when i drive it. i'll wait til it breaks. the good news is, i fixed my locker. it got water inside and everything kind of rusted together. it was a real bitch to get apart but once i got it cleaned up and put back together, it works awsome, just like new. and i figured that since i was at it, it do the grey wire mod, and it also works great. the only thing i can do now is start getting everything together so i can make some skid plates and my tool box for it.
