I would also think that animal control should be thinking about putting those dogs down - I hate saying that...because the dogs were following their nature and it's the owner's fault - but if you have an owner like that the dogs should at the very least be taken away from them permanently and they should not be allowed to own animals.
My friend just talked to his lawyer. The lawyer wants to take the case and go after her homeowner's insurance if possible.

Either way, she's gunna' pay.

I'm not sure if my Jeep is Rubicon capable. Only a 2.5 inch lift on 31's.

BTW: I have an SYE sitting on the shelf for my t-case. Should I install it when I get my t-case on the ground? I will need a new drive shaft won't I?


Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

Yeah, then re-gear the D-30, etc...
So I'll just hold off on the SYE for now.

Still can't get those top two bolts loose. Maybe cut a hole in the floorboards for an access panel?

Frustrating.

Thanks to all..

My Father was a member of FOP (retired LT.) and will be getting a nice funeral service.

His smoking gave him lung cancer, so he is no longer in pain.
I know that he will be watching over his family.

I'm in the planning stages for a trip to Colorado (Grand Junction and possibly Montrose area) and Moab.

I'm thinking sometime in October for ~9 days. Leave on either a Thursday or Friday, then return two weekends later.

One of my best wheelin' buddies lives in Grand Junction and has an open door for me to come there with my friends any time I can. There's plenty room there for rigs & plenty room for guests. I usually wheel there over the weekend on Saturday & Sunday, then head to Moab afterwards.

Trails on the list in Colorado would be: 21 Road and Billings Canyon for certain, and possibly some trails in Montrose. Maybe Calamity, Scratch & Dent and/or a few others. Montrose is ~1 hour drive from GJ.

In Moab, I almost always stay at Canyonlands Campground. It has everything from tent sites to pull thru full hook-up RV sites, pool, party gazeebo, store, laundry, showers, gas station, etc etc. Plus it's only ~150 yards from City Market.

http://www.canyonlandsrv.com/

I have been to Moab several times, and I'm willing to show folks around if you are interested.

We can caravan from San Diego. If your rig isn't up to doing some of the trails, you can usually easily find a seat or hop in my POS or a friends POJ. The last ~6 years I have been doing this same trip & it's always fantastic! I have also had friends tag along for the ride & they didn't bring their Jeeps - so that's an option as well.

I'll be towing my Jeep with my truck & camper with a carhauler for my YJ.

If anybody wants to tag along - let me know so we can talk about it.

That would be tons of fun! I'm not sure how Moab-ready my Heep is, so maybe I could bum a seat in someone else's rig... I doubt I'll have the 8.8 bought, shaved, new brackes welded on, regeared, locked, installed, and the front re-geared by that time.
I have a whole list of stuff I need to do to it, so I might pull an Idaho-Jeep type build and garage it for 6 months to build it up I'll buy an XJ to get me around in the meantime

I might head back out to Moab in Oct, but it will probably be on the dirt bikes. I want to ride 5 Miles of Hell again on the trials bike.

Did ride Golden Spike and Poison Spider and saw some jeeps on the trail. Got some video of a jeep coming down a step. There was a group of several rental Rubicons, doing the trail - said they weren't allowed to cross the Golden Crack though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkOxcYFjn6Y

Saw a couple jeeps out at Trashhaven (Lawrence Welk area) Saturday while riding the trials bike and got some video of them crawling over a couple big rocks - pretty impressive.

BTW, I have some brand new winch cable and the fairlead off my Warn Powerplant that I need to sell. Replaced them with synthetic rope. Any idea what a reasonable asking price might be?

Also, still need to move the stock '09 JK front bumper.
