Took a trip up to r&v today... Had a great time but now I have to fix my heep before snofari.

Fuel pump died, and had a heck of a time getting it off the trail... smucked up the kcs, trashed a fender and due to some unfortunately placed rock managed to tear off the grease zert, cracking the cap on a ujoint all while getting towed out. The trails were slick :)

I was really hoping to get the jeep ready to roll since I go back on overtime for the next couple weeks.
I have some steering boxes and an orbitial valve and cylinder for sale.. Check them out to see if any of them might work for you..

Just grooved two of my tires tonight here at work during my lunchbreak

If I can get time tomorrow night, I'll be doing the other two... Need to get my CB wired in and crawl under the G.D. thing and get the twin-stick shifters made...

And it all has to be done before Beefy comes over to pick the little POS up...

Stupid work keeps getting in the way!!!

Then I gotta rewire my CB because I'm getting engine noise

I don't know others plans but my Friday night run should be fine for a mild rig. Its tight technical driving but nothing to extreme. Snow depth is the biggest issue but usually if you stay towards the back of the group you'll be fine.

You are more than capable for pretty much any trail up there as long as the snow isnít 3 foot deep. If you not locked on both ends like some of us you will do way better then the big ones if its icy like last year.

The snow does get deep and but in the last few years there have only been a few times it has got over 20 inches. Last year it only happened once and only stayed for about a week, snow at my cottage between Rose City and Mio was about 30 inches, accumulated for the season.
