well, i have not sat down and done the calculations, but from rocklin, to reno, and around a bit of reno, and then from reno to taho city, it was 3/4 of a tank... not bad in my oppinion, thats about 180 miles by my best guess.

oh, greg, also, we are getting random input from the speedometer, i am thinking that is is less as a electrical failure, but more of a mechanical failure, mabe the gear is broken?

yea, i would still like to run it in the KOH stock class, it still needs allot of work before that can happen.

sorry, no action pictures yet, except one or two of greg flexing it out on a mound of dirt, thats it.

she still isnt quite ready to take out and thrash.

He's getting shipped out so she will be sitting at my house for a while, and he'll be taking insurance off her so she'll be parked in the back yard most likely :/

Do whatcha gotta do!

While she's sitting around she'll be getting some TLC though

well, nothing happening at the moment, however.
the current plans are as follows.

construct tube bumpers front and rear, and sell both KOR bumpers.
then, internal cage.

these are the big ticket things we have for now.

also, we will see the adddition of 5 harness racing seats in the front, and moving the two front seats to the rear, eliminationg the bench seat, and making the jeep a 4 passenger vehicle.

perhaps around this time we we look into sometube bumpers as well, it is not yet set in stone, we may have that wait till i get back. as tube bumpers is something that i my self can produce.
