As for the forms, they are for subjects under 18, NOT with their parents or legal guardian. I took my seven year olds, which required me to just register them as I did me and the wife. One of my buddies did the same when he took his kid.

They just don't want you bringing someone else's kid...which makes sense.

I plan on making this run. I'm still mad that I missed the last one. Looking forward to it!

Argh, no! My Jeeps not ready!

It will be though...

Some new front hubs and an idler pulley should do me some good. EDIT: And a new shock.

Cant wait!

So go, it will be great. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again, and maybe a little less eventful of a trip than last time!

This sounds like a blast!

Are there any required items we'll need to have?
Tow Ropes?
Flags?

Bring a strap or two if you have them.

Front and rear recovery points are pretty mandatory. (but we can make do without)

A flag is required, grab one at wal-mart (cheaper) or get one at the Badlands.

Carlos,

Did you get the GC repaired, are you back on the road again yet..??


I am looking to attend again, given how much fun was had on the last trip. Although I made it home in one piece, the ol' girl was sulking and sprung a bunch of problems on me shortly afterwards; non-working temp gauge, weird behaviour from the fuel gauge, a high idle speed and then she developed a bad stumble which needed a new TPS, squeaking suspension..... Maybe too much fun in the water..??

Anyway, provided nothing breaks I'll be there....

Dave.

Hey Dave.. still sitting on stands in the garage with no front end, i will be removing the lift before i damage anything else. can't find any parts out there that will work and fabricators are avoiding building me racing UCA's! anyways, i give up! to much money down the drain.
Will your TJ be ok thought?

I'll be there again, I've already got the days off from work. This will be my last run before I deploy though. So hopefully everyone gets fixed up, and we can all wheel together one last time before I go. Good luck guys.

Dave, should I bring an extra tire with me this time? I can it in the back of your Jeep when we meet up, to save you a trip.

I would hate to see you stay home Carlos, would you be up for filling the empty seats? I would offer you one but I'm sure a front seat in a Wrangler would be more fun...

We're going to have to make this a memorable one for both you and the Pumpkinator!

Status:
Front wheel hubs complete.
Idler pulley gets done tomorrow.
Rear shock goes in whenever it arrives, ordered it today.

I'm good really. Carlos had a memorable trip last time... Rod had a memorable trip last time... I'm good with memorable. Plenty of memorys here folks.

I'm just hoping I don't break anything this one last time before I go.

If you don't find a Taurus fan look into locking the fan clutch. You could drill a hole through the clutch housing and run a bolt through it to prevent the clutch from slipping/spinning. I've seen some clutches that have this in case the internals wear out. (this would work great as a temp fix)
