Corral Canyon this Saturday (3-22) after the meeting at Cuyamaca College, about noonish or so. Run up to the top of Bronco Peak and then do Sidewinder, should be back in town well before dark.

Next on the agenda is a possible overnight trip to Aqua Caliente campground and do a desert circuit run on the following weekend (March 28-30)

And apparently we're going to get a repair day in somewhere too

She didn't know off the top of her head how many seats were available in the two conference rooms. So I suppose it's possible that folks will be standing. I'll know more tomorrow after I speak with her associate Pam who is incharge of the Student Center Facility rooms. We will basically have two joining conference rooms in the "I" building on the second floor.

If at all possible, I would try to park in Student Lot #1 and walk towards the Student Center, "I" building.

Here's a link to the campus map for those who may have missed it:

See ya there Joe.

So i passed the smog test, i am more than shocked. I figured they would fail me for the check engine light, or for the no spedometer, or definitely for the emisions, but whatever. Good for 2 more years. Now im gonna give the jeep a bath, and wish that i had money to fix him.

That calls for a celebration.

I was thinking about your situation the other day.

So the options are either find another, proper year, ax5.

Or, rebuild the original and put it back in with the matching transfer case.

Or, dig up the old research we did and try to find an ax5 out of a toyota cheaper.

Or, spending $ on making a front driveshaft prob does not make sense.

Welli found out my jeep doesnt like 30 degree weather. The locker locks up, and the transmission makes some scary noises when you are driving. Not fun.

I gave my friend my np231, but he didnt need it, but i dont think i will get it back for 7 months when he comes back from deployment. I might rebuild my ax-5, but i need money.

My goals.

-Try to make my current TC/Tranny setup work with 4wd
-Replace all the u-joints
-Change a bunch of fluids
-Figure out why my transmission was moving around when it was 30 degrees out, but not when its warm out.
-Figure out why my locker engaged at 40mph
-Fix my soundbar
-Fix the herculiner
-Maybe fix my vibes

...to be continued

So do you need a transmission, a transfer case or both?

Ive got a transmission, and a crappy transfercase, but i have the old ax-5 that i want to rebuild, and then i would need my old np231 that i gave away back.

rebuild seems like the logical thing, unless you can find another ax5 for cheap then sell the setup you have. But, now you have to get a front yoke and driveshaft setup.

what are the odds that you can get the 231 back soon? I wonder if that yoke would fit on the 207?

That was $2 well spent though.

I am changing my thinking on fluids. From now on I am getting the super cheap wal-mart brands and changing it more often. Getting the high end mobil 1 and then filling it with desert dust makes no sense to me.

same with the air and oil filters. I have been changing my air filter after about ever two wheeling trips but with the coupns they only cost about $2-$3 eahc

Thats exactly what I do. No reason to spend all the money when its generally the same stuff. There are only so many refineries in the world making gear oil. Just like everything else, its most likely the same product with a different label slapped on it.

I bought the Kragen brand gear oil.

I still get a quality oil filter. The thing is it doesn't need to be spendy. You can get the purilator plus, which is one of the highest rated, for $4. Thats cheaper than the crappy Fram ones.
