I think Rubiclone wanted all who are going on this ride to check in over here, to keep track of the numbers.

So...life sucks....and the 42RLE EPIC FAILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


anyways, we got my tires on chads jeep, it didnt go perfect, there was a little grinding but we made it work ok...So we test drive it and the CEL comes on. code was p0500 speed sensor. So that along with the fact that the underside of his jeep was covered in tranny fluid made us spend another 2 or so hours out in the cold to check stuff over. So i guess we desided the tranny is leaking around the gasket which still doesnt explain the speed sensor problem. So i guess tomarrow we are getting a new gasket and filter and changing it before we leave. Its going to suck. I also drove the tow rig for the first time tonight and holy crap goose necks manuver funny. I guess i passed the test because i had to back it up about 100 foot in the dark in between 2 garages that had about 3 foot on each side.

So anyways, we are still coming its just taking more effort then we thought it was...and rubiclone, your jeep is deff still bigger than chads. My tires only measure to about 33.5 but they are so wide we are pretty sure its going to float! As in we plan on trying it.

Thanks, but I don't think that I'm going to take 131, I'm going to take 31 to 120 and north on 37.

So....I seen ALOT of people taking pics...where are they all? Ive looked here, and mi wheelers and see nothing.

Only one person in our group had a camera and it went dead half way though the day but there are some coll videos of Live2mx and grandcherokee dropping into that hole, then there is a sweet pic of the red cherokee that was behind us coming out of a hole and spinning water everywhere. ill have to wait till tonight when i get back to lima to upload them.

Oh and chad DROVE his jeep 20 miles back to the cabin lol he could only do like 30. good thing we brought a trailer and didnt drive them up. Oh and that reminds me, 25 foot goose neck plus 2 jeeps, plus 96 f250 = No rolling coal We where kinda dissapointed. We couldnt even get it to give out a puff of black smoke. and ill tell you what, those hills by peacock really worked her hard with that big load....
