I think one of the things we discovered when building the raffle truck (and I'm no expert since my involvement was minimal) is that getting parts donated was great but so was having $$ donated to help cover the cost of all the misc stuff that had to be purchased.

I think it would be nice to donate a winch or something tangible that we could point to and say "Yeah, we donated that" but $$ is always an option. Oh, and just FYI that a new M12000 would run around $1500.

This is a reason IMO why pulling the reigns a little and seeing what happens might be good. Let all the flurry die down and see what they need to finish the truck. Everyone will immediately think winch/slider/tires/lockers. But our raffle vehicle ended up needing stuff like a 4WD engage solenoid and gremlins sorted out at the end (and yeah, the ARB stuff to come through). So like Jeff says, cash or something else unseen could be the thing that pushes it towards completion.

Maybe pledge $1000 or something to them for the last minute items?? Or just tell them to call us when they need something big...

Cash is always helpful in these situations. Probably would be well received.

We don't need to be in a hurry, but we shouldn't wait too long either.

As several have said this is a good project to contribute to. I think we should let them know RS is in for a dollar amount and wait till the end and help where needed. Just my 2cents worth

I can't speak for the whole club , but I would say you are right on target with these last Few posts!!! I just helped deliver the cruiser to Atlanta Custom Creations and they are going to work up a list of things we need. They have already stepped up to the plate with all parts at their cost. We have already spotted lots of little gremlins Hoses Belts Trim etc... Everyone in the club wants to do tires, lockers ,lift , etc.etc.etc... But the few realists know we are going to need cash for things that aren't always so glamorous!!! (Like Winches.) I have heard about your clubs efforts to raise money and want to tell you all we are Rookies at this. I have been reading your forums and find lots of encouragement from the things we have read. I have been wheeling for almost 50 years now and thought the fun would go on forever. Now the sounds of closing gates seem to be everywhere! We in the Ga. Cruisers are determined to fight back however we can and want to be a bigger part of the East Coast and National wheeling preservation scene.
Guys, I want to say Thanks on behalf of all East Coast Wheelers! The Ga Cruisers out of Atlanta were the last club to Wheel Tellico OHV area before they shut the gates! I cannot tell you how depressing this is. My family has been going to Tellico since we became a family and now they have taken the area from us. My grandkids will never know the fun we have had there. I'll try to keep you informed as we proceed. Thanks Again Hendog

Rather than just donate money, why don't we use that same amount to buy raffle tickets on behalf of the club? If the club were to win the truck, we could turn around and raffle it again for some other good cause we want to support or we could put it up for auction at next years Cruise Moab, etc.

Are you getting a little ahead of yourself or are you asking about the Ebay 62 that I posted a link to yesterday? If you are wondering about the ebay 62 hit me with a pm and we can discuss it. I'm available to drive it back to the Denver area from Ohio. Old Guys Auto Transport at your service!
