not that you want to wait, but i'll have one for sale in about 2 months.

I've installed to many jasper anythings to ever consider installing on my own vehicle. When I plan to replace mine (97 powerstroke) I am getting a ford unit from the dealer. I can get one for $2K, with a warranty at any ford dealer.

it was a little icy. got my tow rig and trailer stuck in the entrance. another in our group did the same thing. had alot of fun. we had 7 rigs with us at the start of the day. most of them had some type of damage b4 we left. one wrangler lost a rear locker. one cherokee we think roasted a front pinion, he had a bunch of body damage too. chucks buggy broke a front u joint, and chewed up a front pinion yoke. another wrangler bent a drag link, and a steering shock mount. another wrangler bent his draglink. pretty much all of us were at least pinstriped a little. my jeep didnt break anything. the engine is getting a small tick or knock though. still has good oil pressure, and runs cool.

i got a few pics, but its a new camera, and a new computer. i gotta figure out how they work?

it was a good day!

I heard there was a lot of carnage Saturday, two of us showed up at 10:00 Sunday and we were the only people in the park. It was raining so most of the trails had good traction so we had fun all day. Would have been nice if you guys had run the Hump trail so they ice would have been broken up before I tried to go through, I kept getting hung up because of it. And man does that mud stink! Since there just two of us, I didn't take a single picture, but it would be cool to see some from the night run carnage fest.

That is true, luckily it was cold and rainy, so there wasn't much sweating going on. About five minutes down the highway when the exhaust got good and hot it really smelled. The inside of the Jeep smelled like pig shit, one of those WTF? moments.
By the way, thanks again for opening for New Years. We had a blast, great way to start the year!
