I'll be out there with a stock Dodge in site 139. My Jeep is currently going through a momentary lapse of reason... It would be cool to meet you guys.

Well that was no fun without my Jeep... I used a sand dune to restyle the front end of the truck and add more ground clearance! Looks like about a $400 fix. :-/

I definitely have never seen anybody bust their transfer case in half, pull it, Weld it back together (in a campground) and keep wheeling before this weekend. Kirk (plato2k5) took dedication to a whole new level with that one!

My jeep lasted until Saturday evening before getting towed out. I need a T150 3 speed transmission. Then the county cop pulled us over towing back to the campground cause you can't tow with a strap, silly rules. Was having fun in two wheel drive most of the day though.

I got the Dodge high centered a few times too. I'm definitely used to going through there in a Jeep, rather than a stock crew cab truck. Quite the adjustment in driving style...
