Man, that thing is way off. I'm not even thinking about it right now. Gotta get the axle swap done to my LJ first.

In other news it looks like my group and I are going to attempt to tackle the process to become a Registered Student Organization.

i've been trying. my price range is 10,000-15,000 for a DD/tow rig/work truck. Its hard to find anything diesel with low enough miles and being less than 10 years old. Oh and the 2500/3500 rams of that generation have a favoritism value to me also. I love how they resemble the 1/2 tons whereas the newer rams or any other 3/4-1 tons have a much bigger body ratio from their 1/2 ton counter parts.

Be patient and have people keep looking, they are out there, just want to see you get the right truck, 3 close friends have and swear by them. Glad to see your posts and stay safe over there

I agree. Try to find a diesel if you can. It will be a little more expensive but it'll be worth it. I used to tow with a '08 F150 and it did the job but was hard on the truck. I upgraded to a '07.5 Megacab with the 6.7L and LOVE IT.

Watch out for these guys. They are a bunch of mallcrawlers. I used to hang out with them but they kicked me and a few of my friends out of the group over some BS. They're a joke

Damn that sucks. My wife and a few friends went out to URE with them this weekend so i'll get the sitrep about them later. This past week they helped my wife out with some maintenance by greasing all my joints and rotating the tires. Maybe they have new leadership or something, idk.

Thats the impression I got from them yesterday. I was at the campground at the entrance with 2 friends and thats where their whole group was. Seemed like a bunch of mall crawler/ 'BRO's. I was running Dickey bell and there was a huge traffic jam, we walk up to find a TJ on the rocky hill climb that was supposed to be with the Trail Stalkers and heard they left the tj behind after it popped a bead blocking the trail and everyone else behind with different groups had to help reset the bead on the tj.

And I thought I saw LifeProof's TJ out there on Daniel then up at that parking lot near the front when I packed up to leave yesterday evening.

-Jankoid- I wanted to meet up with you guys but had 2 friends riding with me that were slowing me down and we weren't ready early enough. I saw your group with the other guys on here come by Sat morning around 10:15-10:30. I was parked in that first parking lot/ campground at the entrance with a white older model suburban with a tow dolly and my green sahara next to or behind it.

2002 tj sahara 3" lift 35" km2, AtoZ rockers, 8k warn, 4.56 gears, lock-rites front and rear

she tagged me in some photos labeled "conquering daniel". im pretty sure she made it up both ledges, idk how far up she got though. i dont recognize where these are.
