Well I started out by throwing parts at it lol Finally got it started and really realized it was the headgasket when I smoke out my entire neighborhood. By the time the headgasket is done, Ill have 2k into parts (including lift, wheels and tires) and havent even got to drive or register it yet lol

Went out last Saturday to the trail between Blue Diamond and Goodsprings. Dr Marn was going to join; however, he had some issues so he couldn't make it. Anyways, took my parents out on their first time offroading and here are the pictures:



And nothing like finishing off the trail with a cold beer at the oldest bar in the county.

That's a fun trail. Did you turn and go up the cliffs overlooking Vegas? Last time I was up there we found a camry that someone had pushed over the edge and it fell partway down.

Yep, its a cool view from up there. I got some good pictures of my parents standing up there with Vegas far off in the background.

Normally I could swing a Friday morning, but not this week. Too bad.
