I'll have to take a look at it it's been a while. When I get a chance I'll measure it for you. I might have springs as well.

That's a redundant question! Camping is good anywhere you go as long as it camping in cooler weather!

What you want for the 71? Any info on it? Pics?

We liked it up there. Just a little bit of a drive from the northwest part of town. That is one of the few spots local that you can camp where it is cooler and has water, even if it is just a trickle.

I'm not sure if I'm going to sell it yet. It's a c/20 camper special 2wd. It's got a th-400 and a pretty hot 350 that has been balanced and blue printed. Compression is 12:1. Posi rear end and dual batteries. It is by no means restored. It didn't run for 20 years until 2008 and I never registered it. My dad bought it in 72. He didn't tell me until after I go it running that it had been t-boned and that's why he bought it. I was going to take it to a shop to see if there was any frame damage and pretty much stopped there.
I really would like to keep it but if we end up moving up to Reno I'll have to let it go.

Reno!? What the heck is in Reno? Where do we sign the petition to keep you from going to that forsaken place?

My wife has been offered a few jobs up there and one is pretty lucrative. She will be flying up there next week. Nothing is set in stone but she hasn't got a single call back here yet

That would be good for you guys, esp with her just getting out of school. I believe Dwink is still up that way too. Maybe the local jeep group would let you bring your ford truck to their runs too!!! haha

Sorry I didn't get off of work until 8. Hopefully I'll get off early one of these days and I'll let you know. I store all my junk at my parents place.
