I would love to take that trip but that is a Saturday Trip for me, I need Sunday to recover from all the seat time on a trip like that. I think that I will pass on this one.

I signed up for the DW run, there are only 17 signed up so far, and only a 20 Jeep limit.

Gold Butte is closed thanks to the BLM and the range war. Won't be open until the end of May.

So both our ideas are closed due to the government that is supposed to be there to help us.

I am still screwed my heep is not getting any brake fluid to the rears. Time for a new proportioning valve.

If you get out have fun.

I did manage to wash and wax the car, truck and Jeep. The weather is awesome.

The DW run was a good one, it's been awhile since I've run bitter spring road all the way through. And I hadn't been down boathouse cove road before.

It was good meeting you, it is always nice to have a face with the name. I had a great time yesterday, and I was grateful for the wind we had.

Those wheels just don't work on that jeep. But whatever floats his boat, right!

Just got most of my parts. Did the front and rear brakes, hubs up front, rear axle seals and a rear pinion leak.

Just need to get a brake booster and master set up and should be back on the road.

Hope to be done when it starts to cool off.

Feeling pretty good after 8 hours working on the heap.

I made it with our jeep when it was stock. I won't guarantee that you won't scrap a skid plate but there is only one area that is slightly difficult. You just need to take the right path. There are some groups that will run more of the washes but I stay on the trail for the most part.

I'd love to go, but have to work. Take pictures, I'm curious to see what the rain did to the area.

Hey Rocky,

Looks like I have to go into work Saturday in the AM, since I chose to go and play a little today. I could go Sunday if you are interested.

Posted another thread. Do you anticipate taking your arsenal? If so I may hang back a little and just meet you at the shooting area, just let me know what time you think that you may plan on being done and I will gauge my timing around that.

I know this is a Jeep thread and all... but my wife got me into a little project with her sisters mini S. Putting in a new clutch, I've been following a schematic for a 2002-2008 version, hers is a 2010 and things are in different places but it's been going along great so far. I've got the front wheels off, the shrouds around them, front bumper, crash bars, axles out, linkage off the tranny, slave cylinder off, and next I think is the starter on my list. I was just wondering if anyone knew of a more updated how to? I've looked on mini forums, YouTube videos but everything is older versions.

Quick heads up I am up and running. Last checks tonight looking for a little check ride Sunday get a few confidence miles on the heep.

Anyone getting out Sunday let me know looking for a trail ride.
