When I finish the ball joints (which I didn't plan on originally), I still need to try to deal with the alignment issue. I have other new and untried things, just too much risk to attempt the Rubicon.

Heck, I haven't even gotten a 100% firm thumb's up that I even have the time off, yet.

Let's put it this way, if I hadn't paid my money already, I would definitely NOT be doing the Rubithon. Just too many things to do and far too many unknowns. At this point I'm hoping to just get things together enough to try the road trip part and think I'm going to have to give up trying the Rubicon.

Wow, just saying that is a huge weight off my shoulders. I'm so stressed between work, the house, the truck. Haven't slept well in weeks and that's got to be a big part of why I'm feeling exhausted all the time. Or it could be the last 2 weeks of 10PM nights in the garage after 11 hours days at work. I might be getting 4 hours of sleep a night anymore.

I'd like to shoot to just do the drive out to California. Maybe I can park at the trailhead in Tahoe and walk or ride in. I'm really stressed about the Rubicon being the shake down run for a ton of changes. Different suspension, transfer gears, tires and there will be no chance for me to get in a trail before. Probably have to go into work this weekend and I was originally hoping to get up to see Terry for the last piece of armor. That'll have to be put off until next weekend, which is the weekend before we leave. Just cutting it too close.
While there isn't much I wouldn'tdo for ya I'm not gonna make it easy and scratch your name off just yet. I truly understand the overloaded stressed out part. I hope everything falls in place and it works out for you!
