Default 2008 Snow and Pizza Run - Yankee Hill

Meeting Place: Cemetery area half mile above (west) of Central City-the normal spot. Pizza at Beau Jo's Pizza after the run.

Date: Saturday Jan. 5th, 2008
Time: Meet at 9am or earlier and leave soon after 9:30am
CB Channel 4
Will will air down and chain up (if your using chains) at the meeting place.

Be prepared to be trudging through lots and lots of snow, especially when you exit your stuck rig to hook up a strap. Gater's, snow suits, gortex or whatever - just be prepared to stay warm and dry. It can be really cold and windy. Make sure you have at least one strap and tow points available front and rear.

We will meet at Beau Jo's in Idaho Springs for Pizza after the run. Around 4-5 pm. The club will buy pizza and pop.

I would like to make this run, but all I have for a recovery point on the back of my 40 is a tow ball... Anyone have a recommendation for something that can be added to replace that without having to modify the crossmember?

Actually, I carry one of these so I can yank the unprepared out of my way!

I would think you could figure a way to off set the holes in the hitch to fit the Cruiser pattern. Then again it's just an FJ-40 and considering the fact that tow points are more important than a lift or other accessories it seems that maybe a hole or two could be drilled if necessary so proper safety equipment could be installed!

Looks like $OR sells one that should work.

I, of course, only need it to pull others out of snowdrifts.

Just take the ball off and put a shackle through the bolt hole - if it'll fit.
