Maybe we should stop at Carrows again like the first time.

Cool! I am sure Billybooster will be in the caravan too. We just got his engine back in the jeep today. I think he is itching to get his rig off road.

For everyone coming up the 101 Lets meet at Carrows. Maybe even do breakfast too, like last year

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

no problem I think we need to have a wrenching party some time. I was also a lead mechanic too. Even had my own shop for a while in Vegas. Now retired from the automotive biz. I love it still though. So now I just wrench my own stuff and help out friends like John (billybooster).

It's never been out and about yet, and I am working the bugs out daily. Just got it a few months ago.
As of right now, no cb, no spare tire, Leakey rear axel seals, bad back brakes do to the leaky seals.
304 carb, bald front tires, good rears, lockers..
Second thought that might be a 3.5 hour drive for me.. Tops out around 60mph.
I think Jimbob is going to break into a couple of groups (easy to moderate), and then more extreme.
The first thing I would fix on your Jeep for off road is the brakes. Don't want to be going down hill behind someone and can't stop.

Hey Jimbob can you put me down on the list? I'm gonna try to get that Friday off work. Just need to know if there's any motels and what's the nearest city.

Good man! The nearest town is Lakeport, about 10 min. from where we will start. There are several Motels to choose from.

O yeah I forgot about camping gear. I normally sleep in the jeep (wj can sleep in back comportably) but have no camp stove. I guess if I camp it'll be wieners over the campfire
