I hate those leaks....The ones that have hours of removal and reinstall for a $10 part.

The worst leak I can think of is the rear main seal, $800 repair cost for a $12 peice of string.

I will prolly run out of money for 4x4ing here soon, as everything is just killing me price wise, so I would request we start on these harder trails sooner than later

I got an invite from the Bros' 88 to run Billings, but I don't think I can make it($$$). And it is a darn tough trail on 33 inch tires.
The bros 88 aare a group of jeepers that have a Ford 8.8 rearend. They are crazy too, and I can get that way in the presences of crazy

I was with Traildamge when they did SOB Hill. It runs off the Middle Fork up to the top of Geogia Pass and is a part of the Glacier Ridge trail. The one section is an SOB.

I may join you guys next weekend if I can do it and you don't mind.

Well, I was thinking about Red Cone, but I don't know if I want to drive that far this weekend...maybe in a couple weeks. So, I guess that leaves me with Carnage or Spring Creek again. I like both trails, so I am up for either. Although, the Red Cone/Radical/SOB loop would be fun...just a LONG day. I'm going to need to plan out farther ahead for some of the trails I want to hit this summer that are a farther haul.

So Jay, Shaun, Ben, Tom, Jim, and anyone else wanting to go: Where would you like to run?

Spring Creek- fun trail, good obstacles- make it as hard as you want.
Carnage- good trail, close, make it as hard as you want, but usually busy
Red Cone loop- never run these trails myself, but want to. Long trip though.

Majority rules. Ready.....GO!

I couldn't find 4-lo so I did CC in 4-high. I'm thinking that when I took it in to the shop they knocked the linkage around torquing down the rear DS bolts. It's the same thing that happened when I first installed the TC. 2wd-4PT-4Hi-N-nothing. Doh.

Skid protected the TC fo-sho...gotta give the skid some Krylon lovin'

Not sure why it's oozing like that all of a sudden. Looks like where it mates to the tranny

Nick, that linkage was a PITA! If you want to tackle it Saturday, I could use some help with my steering brace too.

I do not want to run Carnage- I've had all of my fun out there.

Spring Creek was awesome, but we just ran it!

Eagle Rock would be a lot of fun. Not too far of a drive.

Jenny Creek?

Red Elephant?

It would have to be an afternoon thing. I'm watching Noelle as Kristine goes shopping or something in the morning. Let me know.



Why doesn't anyone want to do long drives? I love the drive. Especially w/a group. It's fun to B.S. on the CB w/a group!!! If you're lucky, PullMeSideWays will have Air Supply on his Ipod and let you listen to it through the CB! hahaha

I would like to run somewhere that is not too far away. The wife was already complaining about how much gas I am going to use, but I can go with whatever everyone else wants.

Yeah, it's probably that $5 seal. My VC was going out anyway, hence the TC change.
