I'll be bringing a tent and sleeping crap for myself. I also have a single burner propane grill I can bring. I have my large cooler and I have the foam cooler I can bring as well. Is there a fridge or larger cooler in the camper?

DOES ANYONE HAVE A VIDEO CAMERA WITH A NIGHT VISION FEATURE ON IT? We have to get some good night video. I can also just slap an aux light on my video camera. I just thought I would ask.

I have another, random, question. I'll be grabbing 1 set of Daylighters this week and am wondering if I should grab a second set too. Is 1 gonna cut it or is 2 overkill?

The one thing we have to coordinate is firewood. It's too much trouble to lug it around and then bring it back, or not have enough.

Food is easy to manage too. We don't need 5 jumbo bags of chips but no one thought to bring salsa

I will certainly bring the wings cooker and stuff for that. Breakfast is easy, egg burritos. PB & J for trail lunch.

We still need a head count but it's a little soon to pin that down

I'm hiding in Oxnard again. I'm sort of working a swing shift thing right now.

You guys have fun out there.

BTW: Just for chits & giggles, with my truck & camper fully stocked/loaded, trailer with Jeep in haul with all my tools & spare parts, cruising at ~65mph, anybody care to guess my mileage coming here?

You need to take into account my truck has nineteen hundred miles on it now & should get much better after ~30,000 more miles are on it.

Any guesses?

I have made a great observation. I apologize to any democrats now.

Dang, that's one heck of a good guess!

Actually, according to the onboard computer, I averaged 12.4 mpg's.

It'll be interesting to see how it does over the mountain passes between here to CO & back.

Just roaming through a online shop and came across these. Been considering for a while getting some.

http://www.tellico4x4.com/product_in...ducts_id/26530

Seem good for the price? Its a pair, Side cupholders, storage space in back.

Neoprene.

My seats are leather where they don't cover.

Those are pretty nice.

You could put lots of baby bottles, some diapers, baby wipes, maybe even a few stuffed toys or a Barney video in all those pockets.

Seriously, you could stuff all sorts of junk in all those pockets/holders/etc.

Nevermind me - I'm in one of my weird moods.

Maybe I can take out the back seat completely and my storage bin, throw in a changing station.

We could open an off road day care of sorts, drop 'em off early in the morning. Guaranteed shook up by noon.

well I'm planning to head out there friday after work, if that's when most people are heading out. i'll be bringing some camping chairs, a cooler if we need it maybe we can team up jason, also i can run to costco and get some snacks too. and i have a little propane grille if peeps want to actually BBQ. Since i'm the only one here with a real jeep (wranglers) I can take the firewood, we can load up the back of my zj with all the wood we want. It can be expensive to pay for a decent amount of wood but i think we should all start looking on craigslist for free wood and start swooping on it then maybe on thursday before we leave everyone can bring their wood over to my place and i can load up the jeep. seems like a good idea. if people get pallets break them up before you bring it over i don't think my apartment complex would enjoy hearing grown men with BFH's wacking the heck out of wood all day. let me know if yon need my adress i can PM you the info

My seats are leather where they don't cover.
I had similar covers on my Cherokee and on an earlier Wrangler. They do hold a lot of cra, umm, stuff, but I found that they just got in the way. Not to mention that the pockets are about worthless while you're driving and in the long run I stuffed so much junk in there I had no idea what was where.

A much cheaper alternative you might consider, just in case you end up not wanting them, is Wally World. Walmart sells some seat covers with lots of pockets, black and gray nylon, they're about $20, look decent. If you want to try them out I still have one you can have and see if you like all them pockets or not.

There are lots of business opportunities. For example, we could start a service where if you break your axle you can drop it off and we will have it fixed and back on the road in just two months.

My 2 cents recommendations

good pallets are generally oak and are great firewood, but do have to be cut up. Rip down the middle with a skillsaw and pull them apart. Whole logs will burn for hours so you don't need too many, maybe 4 for each night.


sat and sun breakfast. Egg burritos. Need tortillas, bacon or sausage and eggs. Cheese, sour cream, hot sauce all optional. The cartons of egg beaters from costco are super cheap and equal 8 eggs each, so figure 4 servers per carton. No plates needed and no cleanup other than one pan.

sat/sunday lunch: one loaf of bread and a jar of goober grape. Lunch meat is fine but has to be kept cold so it's an extra problem.

sat dinner hamburgers/hot dogs. again no plates or utensils needed.

friday and/or saturday night chicken wings and assorted snacks.

the hamburger patties and the wings have to be kept frozen so I can handle all that together. We can parse out the rest as soon as we have a head count.

drinks are probably best left to the individual.

I always tend to over bring and over pack then unpacking the leftovers on sunday night is an extra chore.

was anyone here a quartermaster?

We already know that this would be too much trouble to swap in the whole thing for me but I wonder if the carrier would fit in my existing housing? If so I could gear match my new rear and swap in the tj shafts.

Any thoughts?

I'll be rolling out Friday as well. As far as a head count goes, I believe its Steve, Jimmy, Jeff, Josh and myself. We should start planning with those numbers and any that join later can add additional supplies.

Jeff can you PM me your email address please

I think the only way this would work is if your current axle is a LPD30. The cut of the ring gear may be different.
