I am game as long as I don't start tearing apart my jeep before then. I started on the dodge today. Althoug I am sure Nate doesn't want me tearing up his tires to much more.

Actually, if I find some maybe my old cables would work for you.
25-30' total is all I need Jeff, and I could probably get by with a little less. I'm thinking 15' for the welder's + stinger cable and the rest for relocating the winch solenoid enclosure into the engine compartment.

For now, until I can get the 2 gauge cable I'm after, I'm going to use an old pair of 4 gauge jumper cables for the + stinger cable. I'm going to cut off all four jumper cable clamps and connect the ends into the stinger/electrode holder and battery clamp so both cables are in parallel with each other which should be enough for the occasion trail welding task.

Edit: I'm down to only needing maybe 15' of 2 gauge cable so the winch solenoid box can be moved inside the engine compartment. I wired the two cables from old 4 gauge battery jumper cable set in parallel for use as the cable for the the + side of the stinger holder for the welder.

Lawrence Welk, I assume. Ran that with Nate a few months ago with my stocker. It definitely has its challenges.

Sundays are usually easier for me. I like to get stuff done around the ranch on Saturdays. But, I could swap days if it doesn't work for all.
LW can be done in a stock Jeep. If you get stuck there are some winches in the group.

What time Sunday do you want to meet? Where? Anyone up for a breakfast meeting before we head out?

If I need a winch then I've screwed something up big time!

I'm down for breakfast somewhere in Escondido. I'm coming from the north so I don't want to go too far south. There is a Farmer Boys and a Denny's and quite a few others. Denny's is pretty cheap for breakfast. Besides, they have a senior citizen menu for me!

Farmer Boys sounds intriguing. Biscuits and Gravy available???

I've got Grant going with me and he can wheel his XJ this trip. I'll try and round up a few more too. What time would you like to meet for breakfast?

Anyone know where I can get a cheap new or used 31X10.5 tire? Preferably an MT to use as a spare.

Quick question, Where do you guys get your tires from and do you always look for mud treads? Looking to buy some 33's, just got some 15" rims and 35 pro comp muds, that have about 40% left but don't want the hassle of beefing everything up to run 35's.

Unless you have a Dana 35 rear axle 35's aren't that big a deal. I'm currently running 35's with a D30, D44, and 4" of lift. I'm re-geared at 4.56 with stock brakes but I have a 5 speed. I can see a brake upgrade in my future and will upgrade axle shafts as needed. I'm not afraid to wheel my rig hard but I try to be smart with wheel placement. So far so good.

As for where to buy I used 4 Wheel Parts. I also got the road hazard coverage and it paid off when I sliced a tire going up the Bronco peak connector. I'll never buy another set of Jeep tires without that coverage!

Thanks, good thinking about the coverage. Yeah, I have a d44 with a 3.25 lift (thinking about the body lift soon) but didn't want to re-gear, so might just run some 33 until the funds are a little more flowing
