No. This truck will now be spending most of it days in the dunes and hotrodding around the streets. I have another Grand Cherokee that I will be wheeling mostly now. It is almost ready but didn't get it finished trying to finish up the taco for Silver Lake the weekend after.

Thanks man. Yea its starting to get to pretty to dent up. Actually I am about to put fiberglass bedsides on. I really don't want them to end up as beat up as my front fiberglass is.

I will also allow me to get a front long travel kit and not worry about how wide it is.

The prerunner invasion was a good time. I only had a minor carnage. Blew a Ujoint and took out my slip yolk on a brand new driveshaft.

When I got home this was waiting for me. Now if I only knew someone that who could make me pretty brackets. Hint hint.

Thanks for the offer but it sounds like a Brent type problem.

That is the plan except I am missing a driveshaft at the moment. I figure I abused the front driveline enough running around without a rear shaft. Should have it fixed this weekend.

Let me see if I can find anyone to ride with me. I will probably just come up for Saturday or Sunday. Are you planning to stay most of the day Sunday? I am just afraid I will get up there Saturday and not get in.
