3rd annual April Phools Run

Well it's hard to believe that the winter season is coming to a close and wheeling season is coming upon us again.
time to start planning for the 3rd annual April Phools Run.
Get ready for some good times in beautiful Buena Vista.
This year the 1st falls on a Tuesday so we will get it going on the Sunday before.
Mark your Calenders!!!!!!!
MARCH 30th
9AM at the Gunsmoke truck stop.
Leaving at 10 and Running Chinamans Gulch.
TrailDamage.com - Chinaman Gulch

We will probably go up on Saturday and enjoy some time in the hot springs as well as find some other things in the area
any and all are welcome to join us.

Gonna Be Fun!!!!!
Lets get this wheeling season Started!!

This sounds like fun! Will I be able to do this in my jeep? I've got 2012 JK Rubicon, 35" tires and a 3" lift. Keep in mind this is my dd. If something breaks I'm up shit's creek without a paddle . Or are some of the harder obstacles avoidable? Thanks, Larry

you will be fine, there are a couple of obstacles that you will have to maneuver but for the most part you can take a few different lines and one of those would be "easy".
any trail is possible for breakage though.

You have to go into your profile and delete your picture history. It means all the pictures you have posted in the past are still alive in the thread from who knows how long ago. Once you delete them you should be good.

Well hopefully I can keep my jeep in one piece long enough to make the run It totally sucked not being able to run it last year. Although riding shotgun with Doug is just as exciting...

I should point out, Chad, that doing the AF run would be more comfortable if we did it on May 30 instead of March 30...

Lol. I got some poison spyder diff covers being shipped as we speak. Were actually cheaper than the riddlers. Got them on northridge.

I am hoping so too my friend. I was hoping that you would post up.
Nothing says we can't run it again in May...
Hopefully Doug will be back together by then as well.

Price? We just moved so no interwebs setup yet. After what happened to Ed I kinda realized I'm missing a rather important part of armor.

And I'm not sure if I'm in. With the kid on the way my wife's a bit crazy about my possibly breaking the jeep.

Shit, Brian, just take the bypasses. The only dicey part would be the wedge and I know Doug or I can talk you through that. Your wife is pregnant. She will be in crazy mode until the baby comes. Deal with it.

It was a rear d44 and a d30 with a d44 lube locker as I already have one for a d30 for 209 shipped including tax. Price would be cheaper by 21 dollars without the gasket. And could be higher with your rear axle.

I have the poison spyder diff cover for my front and its taken some pretty good hits no damage except my 8 year old daughters paint job. Ive put on my buddies riddler too and they appear to be identical but for the logo casting.

Oh and this sounds like it could be a good run to start the spring
