Sorry you missed the meeting. It was our biggest that I can remember - 70 people.

We have a snow run this Saturday. We're going up Ice House road off of highway 50. Guests are welcome.

Yes I do and yes I can, swing by the shop so we can talk about it in person

Lot's of cool places to offroad in NorCal. Just need to get something going, or find someone who wants to get something going! Clubs are great places to start, but not your only option. Don't be afraid to travel a little to enjoy what NorCal has to offer.

Lake tahoe Hi-Low's are a big club. Very active in the summer. Prob one of, if not the, oldest offroad club in California. Our "Home" trails include: the rubicon, twin peaks, deer valley; but we wheel all over. (in the summer, its mostly the rubicon) We also do a lot of trail maintainence and preservation. Pretty much any given day from may-October, you can find at least one of us out in the rubicon; some of us even live out there (several rubicon springs property owners are in the club (hell, they founded the club)). Meetings are usually the last thursday of the month at the moose lodge in South lake tahoe. Except for this month, the meeting was yesterday, because a lot of members are going to be out of town for Easter jeep safari in Moab.

What's the name/address of your shop? What time of day would be convenient?

They actually cancelled the main run because they were worried about weather! It ended up being a beautiful day up there. Three of us still went up, and we ran the Mormon Emigrant trail. It was a very fun day.

The club changed the date of the official run to March 31st.

Here are some pictures:

Ok, that last one is just my wife making a snow angel. Not really Jeep related...

Well now, I've started looking around Suisun City/Fairfield/Vacaville area for a diff tech. If I don't find one I'll be sure to stop by your shop.

Going from 3.31 to 4.27, I'm not sure of the type lockers, so carriers are a ???

Hey Camilo98 I got a quote from 4wheelparts in Oakland over the phone, they said $2200 parts and labor for a ring and pinion swap and an ARB air locker and air compressor installed into the rear, does that sound about right?
