Naw, I think maybe it's about Texans being all about beef and being called chicken just is too much against their grain!

Nice one UB.. its too bad you could not hit that line, i think its a Free Double shot upgrade if you can make it

That was a great trip, even without my own rig.. Its always nice to wheel with a group that large and not have any major damage or destruction! Thanks for everyone who came and Especially Uncle Ben for getting the ball rolling!

We did not know the guy with the red shirt and nice Runner. At first i thought he was with you guys.. I felt bad that he was stacking our whole group with a cast on!.. Sweet truck!, forgot to mention the Danatrack 60 axles

That is the best of the 4x4 world. Just helps out, does a professional job helping, and all anonymously.

The 40/45 series just ride too rough. I think what he needs is an 80 series suspension under that rig for a smoother ride.

So someone posted a link from ih8mud to this thread and I had to look. Is it true that IGE has an 80? Is the world ending? I have met her 3 times at Cruise Moab, and each time, she's been covered in grease and rolling out from under a 40. In a way, I'm sad! It's like Jeff Zepp getting a 100 series.

Looks like a fun weekend.

Looked like a great trip. I was in Santa Fe drinking margs and eating chilis watching Brent (black taco) get married. Maybe I'll make it next year. Thanks for posting all the pic's. I haven't been up Holly Cross since I sold the 40. Almost brings a tear to my eye....

Yep, looks like good fun. I was calling bulls in the La Garita wilderness area. I did manage to fish Grizzly and Pomeroy lakes on Sunday, but didn't get to push the limits like you guys did.
