I would be more worried about the scattered storms that are supposed to be rolling through

Greg, if that was you that posted up a link to realtime weather stations in the mountains, could you repost it please? I wanted to try it from my phone. Weather stations on my CB come in clear, but I'm not sure how often they are updated.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

polka, wish I'd have seen you were going earlier... I left the house about noon and did a little over half of Grapevine Canyon. It was awesome. Til my rear axle truss turned into a pretzel. I removed the rear drive shaft trailside and made it home in front wheel drive. It was an adventure. Nothing is broken, but my axle is coming out tomorrow for a new truss. Think I'm going to go with T&T Customs.

Good to hear that you made it home. Do you think half of the noises that you heard was the truss getting fatigued?

Just got home. It was really awesome apocalyptic weather up there. We talked to a ranger on the way in and he said the roads were fine. We could see the fog and rain coming from the Mt. Charleston side of 95 and decided to go ahead anyways. Sunny patches and light snow flurries at the start. No rain it was to cold. By the time we got to peekaboo canyon it was coming down pretty good. Very eerie being in a massive snow cloud. Visibility was next to nothing so when we got to the end off peekaboo we turned around. Some of the best views are after that and I'll bring the wife back another day to see it when it's sunny. After turning around we really got into the snow storm. Snow coated the ground and turned everything white where we had just driven 10 minutes before. When we got through it the sun was on the other side and melted the snow as fast as it had fallen. The road as far as we went was fine. Shannon even drove on the way back. Exciting. I have to get a usb cable for the camera to get the pics off so that will have to wait.

Dave, I hope when you get that fixed your Jeep will be done throwing a fit. Good luck man. We were practically neighbors wheeling today lol.

My 8.8 I'm pulling out of my Jeep has a TnT truss on it. Worked great for over 2+ years on 37"s and lots of hard trail miles.
