I've read about a few fairly close to Vegas, but it seemed that most had no access or at the least, restricted access. The ones without restrictions didn't seem that interesting to me. If I could find one that has some depth and minimal vandalism, I'd be interested.
How about this one? Leviathan Cave.

Man, last year I was all "I wanna make it to hump-n-bump next year!"

Well, sadly my jeep was acting a fool and wouldnt run right....and I never got any front recovery points worked out.

Your pics look like fun though.

On another note, I think I finally got the waggy up and running. I drained all the gas, cleared all the lines, filled it with 5 gallons of KNOW good gas, let it warm up, drove it around the block 6 times, shut it off, started it up 10 minutes later, then drove it another few times around the block....smells normal again and drove 100% fine...but then again it drove fine last time I tested it too, then crapped out again.

A few more road tests will follow, but the results are promising! It may be back on the road now.

Hey Guys,

I’m working on taking my Jeep back to stock to trade in for a rubi (hopefully also an LJ) sometime around the holidays. Wondering if anyone had a few stock components you’re trying to get out of the garage and willing to let go on the cheap.

Shoot me a PM if you have:

• TJ Tie Rod
• TJ Stock Shocks (high mileage OK)
• TJ Steering Stabilizer
• Tires size 235/75 R15 or a little smaller

Also, if you know anyone who might be interested in a stock ’01 TJ or a ’98 Honda CBR 600F3 in a few months, let me know

Thanks!

I may still have the stock shocks from my zj. I know the front will work but not sure on the rear. I check if I still have them after I get off work.

I really wouldnt worry about the tires? Your 31's are in good shape, and i REALLY cant imagine aftermarket rims and small aftermarket tires hurting the trade in.

Actually my aim is to move whatever aftermarket stuff I can to the new jeep, and replace with factory-spec items.

Sad, but hey, as you pointed out, breakage is only an excuse to upgrade!

44? 8.8?

I thought I would throw this out here to you local peeps. I have two pieces of automotive diagnostic equipment.

One is a MTS 3100 Master tech . It is a scanner and oscilloscope. It is currently has domestic and Asian software on it. But since I help out the local Bosch rep. I am going to see if I can get it up dated with your choice of software to current model yr. More info http://www.weber.edu/wsuimages/autom...s%20Manual.pdf .Current value is 600-800 as is with new software 1600+. As is no updates I would need $700. Updated $1400.

Second piece is a MTS 5100 4 channel oscilloscope and graphing multimeter. New this tool will run you $8000 with all the options starts at about $4500. I only have the low amp clamp and some cables. No vacuum transducer or ignition cables. But I do have the optional pressure transducer that was a $2500 addition to the base tool. Internal battery is done so must be plugged in or hook to car battery. More info http://www.auto-equip.com/engine_analyzer.htm . I would need 1500.00 for this tool.

I will have both tools out here in Las Vegas after thanks giving.

I would like to sell one or both. Or Trade for a Semi auto hand gun.
Sig Sauer P226, P229, P225, SP2022
Glock 17/19 or 34
Smith & Wesson M&P
Beretta 92, M9, 90-Two

I would gladly trade one tool even up for the right gun+ or both for two+ guns

Will consider others. To take this off this web board E-mail me Mike SW214@comcast.net
