8) warrior !

Thanks, it is so good to see her. I am doing better, getting back on my feet and have been real busy with my day job and not to mention the 7 vw's in my garage that is why I haven't been on alot lately. I would love to get together and we can pick each other's brain. Laughing If you have questions or need help let me know.

Whats up I am sure we can workout some kind of visitation or something ...

could really use your input sometimes I think I might never finish her.

You guys keep having all the fun I'm getting bug fever if you know what I mean.

It took me forever to get the tubing bender welder ext.

I herd you where down are you ok?
Cool

Bro. I know you're probably tired of hearing this, but that is a helluva bug. One thing that I happened to notice that scared me a bit:



I've seen this nut fall off more than once. I was running with a guy a couple of months ago where it fell off and the only thing that held it all together was the fact that the tire wouldn't let it slide completely off.



Some guys will use a castle nut with a pin up against that special nut you already have on there. I just use a regular nut up against mine with a couple drops of Loctite.

Nice job on the front end cut. Measure...Cut...(Sweat a little bit)...Measure...Cut...Measure...Cut...(Sweat a little bit more)...Measure...Cut...(Sweat a little bit)...Measure...Cut...Measure...Cut...(Sweat a little bit more)...Measure...Cut...(Sweat a little bit)...Measure...Cut...Measure...Cut...(Sweat a little bit more)....
DONE! Aghhh.....

No prob. Just tryin' to help a baja brother out.

Put up a picture of your link pins, too. I was looking at them in your picture, but can't quite see them well enough, so I didn't say anything earlier. If they're the nylock type that come with the HD pins, that's another common thing to fall off. Throw them in the trash and double nut them with two 5/8" fine thread jam nuts. I've also seen guys use castle nuts and a pin, but that requires drilling, and I chose to do it the easier way.

See this post:

They are and I will thank you !
Question how often do you guys have a run?
I am from Cali. and the video from Big Bear really brought back some memories.

The Holcomb Valley is one of my favorites.

When she is done I would like to come along.

It's a long ways from Phoenix out here. Are you sure you want to make a run like that?

We do a run every month. Just keep an eye on the SoCal Bajas section in this website. I always post info there.

There's talk of a Mojave Road Run this year, which starts at the Colorado River and heads west to Mojave. That would be a fun one for ya. Love to have you along on any run we do. You're always welcome, as is anyone from this site. Holcomb Valley is a blast, huh? Went up there three times this summer.
