well i was rebuilding my front driveshaft. one of the needles fell out of place and i didnt know it, and pressed the cap on, and it popped and the retainer clip flew out of the other side...it popped the material out that would hold the clip in place. so anyway, it was 8:30 and they cant get one till 9-930. so ill be out there around lunch time.

ill have your bumper with and ill give you a call when i get there and we can meet somewhere

Yep, sorry we didn't run into each other...we got there around 9 in the upper lot....went back out for lunch at Subway around 11:30, and back to the park...left around 4 o'clock. Sure were lots of fancy "golf carts" out there racing around!!

not sure. but alot of the big rocks in the rock garden are pushed off the side on orange now.
I was only there for half the day, so i didnt see a whole lot, but from what hairy man boobs i think they are wussiefining it. there are still some challanges, but i was really upset to see that on the steps.

Hey blue all my buds were glad you could come out and play. it was great to wheel with you and all of them. was a whole lot of fun.

cleaned the jeep the last couple of days finding and fixing damage. both frnt fenders tweaked right side will never be the same even tore up my flare just a little love tap from the badlands.

found 2 things making my front end pop. first blue you were definately right my L.F hub is toast. second was the LF spring had dislocated. easy fix just unloaded fr susp and spun it by hand.

JG looked for you all day we entered in the same way you did must have just missed you.

All in all one awsome weekend...will get pic posted as i get them. buddies are sending me all they took.
