Hey y'all, haven't heard from anybody in a while. Hop some of ya have been able to enjoy the weather in your rigs. I'm hoping to get that lift around the beginning of sept, we'll see what happens. In the meantime I wanted to see who'd be interested in getting together for a trip out to Elbe. It'll be in September and most likely on a Sunday, possibly a Saturday and camping the night. Throw your thoughts out there so we can get the planning started.

I know that 4 wheel parts does it and they did a great job on my Dads old 95.

Randy's Ring and Pinion is nationally recognized to produce quality work. They're in Everette. Might be pricey though.

Thanks fellas. I actually finished the swap and regear a few months ago. How has everyone been?

Unfortunately I'll be out of town from the 3rd to the 18th. Maybe after that?

It is officially a go! We have the date, time and location for the 3rd Annual Dick Hannah Jeep Off-Road Show with the proceeds going to the Yacolt Burn Project.

Date: Sunday, October 7th, 2012
Start Time: 11:00am
End Time: 4:00pm (or whenever everyone leaves)
Location: Vancouver, WA. TBD (Waiting on Permits)

This event will be just as big as Dick Hannah’s Past Events. There will be lots of cool stuff with all of the proceeds going to the Yacolt Burn Project in SW Washington to open more trails.
They are clearing the lot so we will have plenty of room and they are expecting over 100 Jeeps.
There will be a RTI Ramp, BBQ, Raffle, Music, Vendors, and more!!!!

This is a great event for a great cause. There will be many sponsors this year bringing their products, and they are working on getting a MASSIVE number of giveaways. They are going to be asking for a donation this year (same as in the past years, the donation price will be posted shortly), but it all goes to the Yacolt Burn Project in SW Washington and they are going to provide food, music, and many chances to win stuff. You won't be disappointed. (The donation is not required, but they would sure appreciate the help with this upcoming ORV area.)

So let’s make sure we let everyone in our social circles and contact lists know about this event,
and help drum up as much support as we can!

If you or someone you know can donate anything towards the raffle prizes, it would make this event even better and help raise more funds towards the Yacolt Burn Project.
Also, if you or someone you know is interested in attending as a vendor, please contact me at: dfjennings68@gmail.com let me know. We want to get as many people involved, connected and up to speed.

The flyer and a link to the registration page will be up shortly!

Sincerely,
David Jennings

That sounds awesome! I definitely will consider it, but I'm starting a new job that previous Friday. They may ask me to work overtime and I really need the money, so we'll see. Hope they give out as much stuff as Straddline!

By the way, did you ever get your diff cover?

I did get it. Just don't have the money to put it on. I was supposed to get a lift kit, but finances prevented that. But I should be able to get the tire spacers in a month or so.
