killer job jim, jim, pat & everyone at glfwda.

i ripped a valvestem off a rim and had a flat pretty quickly, other wise my junk performed pretty well. the 20 mins of crawling i did was worth the trip!

even with no air at all in my tire, the bead glue held up. the tire is still on the rim, and it dont wanna come off. think its gonna need a little heat. i drove on the flat quite a bit too.
U were there? How did I not see you?

Thanks to all who came out and to those that couldn't make it, we missed you.

The park staff was there and were very excited to see the turnout. They think we're kinda nuts. LOL

Best time ever for me at the mounds. My wife's driving really impressed me. She had no problem with the trails at the north end of the park in a big ZJ.

Nice Job!! We had a good time, Lost a lock out , Well thats what we thought ,till we were on are ay back up front and the hub can loose, After we made it home I tore it apart to find a blew out stub that wobbled out the spindle and snapped the hub nut and gutted the inside of the hub, After i took the caliper off the hub slid off without any tools needed, I have know idea when it all went,
