Imagine if we had 10,000 members....

Adding to the plaudits, the leadership of Perry, Ige, Mike, and the others in making sure no one was left behind, everyone knew what was going on, everyone got home, etc. was exceptional.

I installed solid axle minitruck hubs on my '78 FJ40 and was unable to install the c-clips. I just left them that way. The 'wheeling I do isn't likely to stress things too much in there.
