Thanks I'll go over and drive it. She says only 78K so I an thinking some thing in the driveline but she says tranny. The price is right so I check it out and pull it if needed. Thanks to all. Greg how was the run? It was a big crowd but group 1 had a good time.

Dudley's Transmissions has done some amazing work for me in the past. I say in the past because they fix it once and I've never had any problem again until I get another vehicle. 4150 Losee Rd North Las Vegas, NV 89030‎. (702) 362-0815

Joe, the ride was good. I actually left from the camp ground and went back towards Cold Creek. I took the back way out of the campground and it was way better than taking the main road. Also once I got back on the other side I took some of the side roads though the community. I think I may have found a nice wooded place that might be good for camping too.

Great seeing you guys again, as usual the group was just a little too large for me. Breaking it up into two groups did help a bunch with that tough.


And... the ARB fridge worked great on its first outing. My only problem was that I currently have my soft top on and it was a pain to get to compared to no top or the hard top. Unzipping that back window for a quick drink on the trail is a PIA!!!

Not really I am sure I could turn it for a quick buck. Yours if I had the funds I would buy. Good luck on the sale.

Gregg it was a great run for the club 35+ Jeeps 62 people it was good. The monthly day runs are very popular so they get the most action. Kind if tough to do but necessary. Lots of new folks out to have some fun in a Jeep which is good for the rest of us when it comes to legislation to close trails.

Everyone had a good time we kept to the schedule and the trail was good. They also did some good business at the winery.

Morman wells road is on the list along with Aztec wash in the next few months.

In the fall I want them to do Bitter Creek Back Country Byway great trail look it up. 30 + miles ends up just south of echo bay on Lake Mead.

Great to see you out catch you later.

Marn's axle is in and hung. He should have the wheels on and first drive tomorrow morning. The brakes might be a little iffy. We won't know for sure until he drives it. They are softer now but that may be due to the drum to disk conversion.

So possibly a newer master cylinder? Is it vacuum boosted?

It is vacuum boosted. If it needs anything, I would think it would be a proportioning valve?
