I kinda know how you feel. if I break my D35 i can justify the 8.8 swap i have everything for except gears.

Well, finally, maybe we can do a quick run over to China Wall Saturday after Illinois. Three or four quick launches up the wall at full throttle out to do the trick...

That's true... I was also going to suggest that perhaps he would be kind enough to share some of the finer points of wheel hopping...

You know some of those ledges on Maob Hill look to be about the right size, maybe we wouldn't even need to go over to China Wall...

Hot damn!!! It will be good to see you again, Denny! Pretty simple. Meet at the staging area in Rainbow Falls Park at 10:00 Saturday morning. Trail starts out from there. Should be a lot of fun trying to break Chad's rear axle...

Yeah, same here. There are some very nice spots for a lunch break in there. Hopefully we'll be able to snag one of those.

I'm not sure anyone got of scotch-free from that one. I still need to go under there and look around but I'm using the storm as an excuse to keep my head firmly planted in the sand.

Ouch Good luck getting it back together. My alternative to the Rockmen skid is flat plate and cradle, giving me two rear mounts, but again it's a case of ten pounds of sausage in a five pound casing...
