Take the cowl off and the hole the heater draws the air into find a way to mount an air filter on top of it. TJ's do not have a cab filter in the heaterbox

When the bottle said to "keep out of the sun" - I thought that was for the pills......not me. Guess that musta just been a suggestion anyway.

There is and there isn't. It's great when the doors and hard top come out unscatched, tear uo a door, break the hardtop and bust some of the glass and a fun day looses it's luster. Me I prefer to leave everything home that comes off, all that remains is a tub, hood and cage and a torn bikini top. Not much there to get upset over, besides it's fun to use parts of the roll cage as a rock slider

Serg5000 Good morning everyone. Boy am I rested. Sore as hell but finally rested.

aw12345 It's been to hot for to much fun, but!

Steering on Tinkertoy was a wash, but playing with scrappy was fun.
Welded a few thing in the heat put some oil in the front diff. Tightened and added jam nuts to the control arms and then it was flexy time.
Also figured out that the TCC works in all gears, couldn't figure out for a bit why the darn thing kept stalling, guess a idiot light would be a good addition.
Anyway on to the good stuff at 4 feet of flex front and rear things are stable and it's easy to get there. I bet I am gonna love auto wheeling.

Serg5000 You could head up to the water slides up in Sequoia. That's about 120 miles away.

No I haven't. Is this the coyote lake by Yermo? I know of some springs by Alvord and Cady. But I haven't been out there.

WOKNROX The hot springs around the Coxy meadows area are all running and clean. Like earlier stated watch for the nudist.
09-13-2014 02:01 PM
WOKNROX I'm sure there's plenty of water in Deep Creek around the "Leeds Point" swimming hole...that's the one that has the mural painted on the rock..about a mile past the parking area off of PCT. It used to be a place for the nudist back in 60's ,70's and early 80's. Rattlesnake canyon had the usual amount of water in it for this time of year when we ran Matino Wash. Remember that these waters are feed from deep spring and not surface waters.

Gross. I hope someone is monitoring that. If the water isn't flowing I wouldn't swim in any part of Deep Creek to honest, and with the drought it's likely a lot of the pools are stagnant. Unfortunately someone would have to make the trip to see.
09-13-2014 01:09 PM
Ditchdoc Don't have to worry about me. I'm tossing the house and the rv looking for my trailer paperwork and a couple bags of ammo that are unaccounted for from my move. I doubt any of the creeks will have sufficient flow since they are fed from springs. No rain no springs.

I think it was O'lroy from Walmart. That cub ate well. All of us fed him house food leftovers also. We found out he didn't like peanut butter.

I know of a few places to swim in Deep Creek. They are all going to take a hike to get to though. The actual Devil's Hole (not the one you drive to) is a great place, it's about a mile north of where 3N34 crosses DC along the Pacific Crest Trail. The other places are secret

But if you walk along Deep Creek using the PCT, you'll come across a bunch of places deep enough to swim, depending on how well the waters been flowing this year.

Serg5000 I was thinking about heading back up to freeway ridge this weekend with a friend this time. Not sure yet. My kids XJ took a shit. Hoping it's not to expensive to fix.
