Sorry to be a thread hog but........looking at the raffle truck list, we have nearly every damn thing we have listed as needs, in our possesion. Time to extend that list, don't ya'll think? The big things still needed are the Warn winch which Hulk will take care of, axle and tie rod ends that could be handled by Marlin - somebody call Dean Baranski as he has Marlin's personal hot line phone number and he can sweet talk Marlin into the front axle and tie rod needs - Rockrunner said something about having extended brake lines and I have the small parts coming from Stevinson tomorrow, leaving only a fridge and lockers as the BIG things needed to have one complete, expedition-worthy 62 to raffle off. The first aid kit, spill kit and GPS unit are all that are left to make the current wish-list complete. We are so close to having all of the parts that only our labor keeps us from having a totally raffleable(?) truck ready to go.
WOOHOO! I CAN'T WAIT TO WIN IT and I as I already have one very sweet 62 so I know wtf I'm going to win. SO GOOD!!

Powertank is one of several off-road related companies that I've been a customer of over the years that has gone out of its way to make sure I was a more than satisfied customer. That Steve is a Toyota guy only follows suit! With that thought in mind, has Marlin Crawler been contacted for a donation? They have all sorts of axle rebuild items and I think we need some things along that line, eh?
i tried calling a couple of times, but can't ever get through. also emailed him, but no response. i think big horn was going to get the front end kit from him (they're donating that)...

i'm still waiting to get ahold of joe collegia to find out if he's heard from reider racing on gears...i've left numerous messages with ben, but joe hasn't called back and the only info i have for reider is an address where joe asked me to send a proposal letter. there are also some dealer items that justin and art were working on, front end kit and tie rods are being donated by big horn jeep club. we do need a couple of gel cells, kevin's working on ss battery trays. also hi lift. first aid kit (and maybe spill kit) is being donated by wagonmasters club.

ok, here's what i've got.
my idea is to put expanded steel over the top.
i feel it's safer and you can clean your muddy boots and shoes with it.
flat bar gets real slippery when wet, you could skid tape it i guess.

tell me what you want and i'll do it
expanded steel or flat bar?

or nothing at all.
but i'm thinking family saftey here, so i really don't want to leave it open.

I vote for Grip tape, I think the expanded metal look is a little bit cheesy. But it is just my .02

Great looking sliders Jim!

Suz just called to let me know that TWO boxes just arrived at our front door containing both of the requested items from Tuffy!! That's very cool, IMO, and very rewarding to Suz and I that our request was honored. So, if you are hesitant to ask a vendor for a donation, don't be, they - most of them - really want to help and we just have to ask for their help.
Now make those donation requests!! It feels good to get a positive response.

Steve

That is awsome Steve, two birds with one call

Give me a call and let me know which rear box we got so I can start planning the deck.
