Front end repacked, fuel filter replaced and fluids changed. Cruise Moab posters printed and 1/10 is framed. Tent is back on the truck, some how it always comes together:eek:. Looking forward to a week of Hot Rods, good friends, Canyon Country, and being away from the city:cool:. My big goal for this trip is night time shots, so any with experiance come by and give advice:thumb:.

Me too! I'm still stressing out trying to get everything packed, all the leaks, tweaks, etc. worked out on the rig. A buddy and I are leaving Washington on Friday, should be at Area BFE on Saturday afternoon. I figure we'll have a couple of days of getting acclimatized before the event starts.

Yep, stole the idea from someone in Arizona (who had (AZ3MUD) or something like that. I just got my ticket a few months back, figured I may as well get something cruiser specific as a call sign! :hill:

I can't wait to get out of here either.. all I have to do is load everything up and put a new fan clutch in the 60 and figure out why my oil pressure gauge quit working. The fan clutch I put in this weekend never disengages..

All oils changed, bolts torqed, and lights working.

Ditto on all including the ham...Not sure why I always wait until the very last minute to get to stuff...Had the ham radio for over a year now :rolleyes:

See Rami, I told you mods must age like a fine wine on a garage shelf before install :hill:

Funny, I have the same problem :o Always wait till the last minute and then I have to ask for help. At least Sharon :Princess: is taking care of all the packing and leaving the rigs to me.

I can't wait till Saturday night, won't be able to sleep a wink, can't right now anyway.

Still to do;
Camper on truck
de-winterize camper
fill water tank and propane
Load all the crap I need, tools etc.
Help Sharon load all the other stuff
And much more stuff.....:eek:

Oh and finish working on the 4Runner.......................So why do I wait till the last minute again:rolleyes:

Got the air bags figured out. They are pretty cool, we will see if they extend enough. If not... hopefully they will act like limiting straps instead of pinatas.

Had to change the right rear inner axle seal AGAIN :rant: . This time I modified a Marlin seal to fit the FRORF adapter. NO idea why it failed, but obviously SOMEthing is different back there. So we'll see.

Changed the rear 90wt just on a whim, glad I did. Found a couple small chips of steel on the magnet :eek:. I am REALLY hoping it is leftover shrapnel from last year. I cleaned out the axle housing but you can only do so much unless you take everything completely apart and go to the carwash... even then.

Da Boy is bringing his trials bike, should be entertaining. Gotta rig a bike rack receiver on the camper I think. That's it. Not leaving till next week, due to some commitments.

I feel for you brother. Im in the same boat. Let's both try to make it a point to get to Moab in '11. Man, that sounds like a long time to wait. :(


Have fun out there everyone, and safe travels. :thumb:

Bill,
I have special 4" spacers or maybe 2" for airbags. You are more than welcome to try them out and see if they would work for you. I got them for the Dodge but did not need them afterall.
