Well Marn just think, it's already 10x more reliable then when it was pushed off the line.

The other one is cause pretty much every 17" wheel sized 35" tire of most brands is backordered right now and the friend had a flat and has no spare so he's got no car for 2 weeks till his new one shows up supposedly.

Garza, does your buddy that I gave a ride to in the race truck really have any serious interest in something? I've got a friend here in Henderson that has a truck that just needs finished up, mostly plumbed and wired I believe. It's absolute art work type of fab work. Built by those armada engineering guys. Very top of the line type of fab work. I don't know asking price... He's asking me to swing by and look at it and help give him an idea of what it's possibly worth. He also asked if I knew anyone potentially interested and that dude was the only one that popped to mind. It's every bit a geiser type build quality, honestly, better if you put a geiser chassis next to this... Wouldn't surprise me if he'd let it go for cheap compared to it's worth either, especially since it's not finished. The hard parts are there, just needs buttoned up and brought to life.

Well guys, it’s been fun wheeling with y’all the past few years. Work brings to me to San Diego, so hit me up if anyone makes a trip to Anza Borrego.

Time to pick up a salt water pole and get to work on some fresh fish tacos!!!

Borrego springs, fonts point, Ocotillo Wells, Truckhaven, Corral Canyon, Pinyon Mtn Trail, etc... If you're in san diego look those areas up for good local wheeling within a few hour drive or closer.

I did a few trails in Corral Canyon a year or 2 ago. It was fun.

Plus now I'm 4.5 hours from Pismo!

Or 2.5 from Glamis... If you're going strictly for dunes Glamis is hands down the winner, if you're going for beach and a little bit of dunes though, I totally get it!


Any idea what part of san diego you're moving to or working in?

Okay peeps, looking for a LIFTED jeep with a D44 to do install photos on for our diff cover. A few people here have seen it or seen part of it in person and will vouch that this isn't a glamor piece. If you're like power and concerned about weight, this probably isn't for you. Prefer to do the install on the rear cause of unobstructed pictures. Will need you to be able to cruise by during the weekday daytime hours for the install. You can hang out or drop it off and come back and grab it when done, doesn't matter to us really. Looking to knock this out ASAP. If you're going to hang out I wouldn't think this will take more then an hour or so at the most... First to speak up gets it... Can do the install even this afternoon, tomorrow, monday, tues, etc... ASAP...

Khris, the waggy Isn't there, least it wasn't a few months ago when I went.


Also any of the 78+ tanks won't work. It requires a ton of work to get it to fit.

Pismo is awesome, I've been there before. Need to check out Glamis as well.

I'll be working like 5 minutes from UCSD

Oh nice! Yeah, pismo is fun, I've been there twice. To me it's a place you go chill on the beach during the summer and hit the sand for a bit once or twice a day and mostly relax on the beach. But... if you're actually going for the dunes... Glamis is about million times large, bigger, taller, insane, etc... Other then they are both sand and paddles rule, there's zero comparison between the two.

Khris, why do you need one lifted? Why not just do mine tomorrow and jack up the back for a better picture.
