Sorry I missed you there Lance. I was only there for about 1 1/2 hours, but I only saw one other 3rd gen. there. It was a guy I had never met before. He was mildly modified with a green 2000. He was still running the old SAW's that we all used to use.

There were plenty of nice FJ Cruisers there though.

we helped this guy from minn. out. he'd broke the leaf springs on his 60, so we found john at coyote cruisers, who had a pallet of springs at his shop.

romer and myself in our annual pose

Had a great time at the Rally and picked up a few parts for the 40 while there. This was my third Rally and the first time I knew what everything was when I was shopping for parts. You guys have taught me a bunch over the last few years.

that wasn't me....I found out my mom and John were over there trying to outbid each other on the $2200 Cruiser. Simpson called me over to talk them both out of it and it was too late.

No compression on 4 and 5...

I was looking for you too Scott...glad it wasn't just my eyesight. I just wish I could have hit one of the trails on Sunday.
