Okay, we'll give it a shot... Anyone interested, noon at this spot. Should be obvious. Black chevy, car trailer, green race truck if it's not there Merricks jeep and Garza's jeep will possibly be there also if they're not out screwing off too. Either way, if the truck isn't there, hang out, it'll be back soon and I doubt there'll be many others there. Typically most people stage in the lake bed. Mostly just race testing stages from here.

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=las+v...k,+Nevada&z=18

Pretty much can guarentee some rides for anyone that shows up as long as the truck is running good. I'll have a helmet with me. Bring drinks, kids or adult beverages (I obviously won't be drinking but I won't tell you you can't...), guns if you want to shoot around the corner from where we're staged, jeeps if you want to take off on a spur of the moment run, whatever. Don't be shy, cruise out and say hello and get a ride probably if interested.

Yep, 4 problems: they are far away, not already assembled, not already in your Jeep, and takes $$$ away from the gun fund.

You're priorities are right! LOL

BTW, anyone that's like me and tries to live in Sandals, if you come tomorrow make sure you bring some shoes for in the truck. Other then that, I've got a spare xl helmet and also a pair of gloves never hurts to wear either honestly. It's not very luxurious in the cab and lots of metal...

Never a problem. If you want me to come by and lend a hand, just let me know.

There is not that much more metal than what there is in your typical car. This just lacks all the plasticky parts that usually covers the metal parts.

Did you ever get some grip tape on the floor? It won't be complete until then. I know, I saw it on DR!

If you say so... I don't remember ever buying a car without carpet, headliner, door panels, plastic paneling oh and with tubes everywhere around you. Can't vouch that EVERY sharp edge in the cab is deburred... I tried but I'm sure there's one somewhere waiting to draw blood sooner or later. Just saying, some might not exactly know what they're signing up for so just saying...

I would request some more upclose pictures before you drive down there. Esp around the cylinders on the block. It looks like there is some major pitting on cylinder 6 of that second picture. While the head gasket will fill in some of the pitting, I would be worried about the longevity of it. The pitting is not only around the cylinder wall, but it is also around the oil drain and water jacket.

Do a search and see what dodge recommends as a pitting tolerance. I would also call a few reputable machine shops and get some input from them. I understand that cast iron block will have some imperfections, but that look more like corrosion from a blown head gasket or a good overheating.

I was trying to ease people fears a little and you come out with that? Metal bits waiting to take a bite? I was trying to make people a little more at ease so that when they actually saw it, they wouldn't want to get in thereby giving me more seat time. Thanks a ton for the help buddy!

I offered a helmet, what more do they want! I don't have any liability release forms so if we roll and die in a ball of fire, it's not my fault!

BTW, we now have 2 spare fuel pumps... The pump itself wasn't burned up, it was the harness inside the fuel cell shorting out... Shorts make sparks, sparks inside fuel cell... Yeah, think about that one!!!

I had the random thought that it couldn't be all that bad. We tried to fire it up in your garage and it didn't blow but then I thought about the fuel sloshing around while offroad and well... Boom! Hell, you don't even have to have a short, the increased resistance could cause it to heat up and it is splodey time.

Would it be better if those of us in the military and carry firearms around shoot the hell out of the truck after it goes splodey and tell the authorities that we thought you were a suicide bomber? At least I might be able to claim PTSD. LOL
