Are we still going to hold this on April 3rd? That is the day before Easter. I don't care if we are, but if not, I need to know what the date will be so I can ask for that Saturday off work. It's by seniorority until the 31st of January and first come first serve after that.




see newest list of who is going on page 4.

james i would say yes. that is the 1st sat of the month and that has pretty much always been the day that the trip has been on. unlesfor some reason someone has some kinda major family health thing going on id say you will be safe with that date.

well, i'm kinda thinking we should do the run the weekend after. with easter weekend and the afr being the same weekend it will put some people out of being able to go...
i was gonna make a post about this but james beat me to it...
i'm by no means taking over this, and its kinda up to everyone out there but i'm just making a suggestion...

It's not my board, but it sounds like three others would like to have it the weekend after Easter. SOOOOOOOOO, let's make this years April Fools run on Saturday April 10, 2010. This should give everybody plenty of time to make arrangements and save money to make the trip! I'll put in for the time off tonight at work!!

Sounds good to me fellaz :tu2: I think I'm gonna make this one an overnight stay as well.I was beat last time and did'nt have enough time to wheel.

I'm not 100% sure yet but hopefully I'll have a new rig by then.The ol XJ is still going strong but it's time to find something a little newer.

Well that sucks. I can make it the weekend of the 3rd. But not the next Sarah has to work that weekend and I will have both kids. Looks like the creator of the AFD will have to miss it...

trees arent exactly for shade in april but it definately helps cut down the wind right outside of badlands there camp ground is one giant mudpit windtunnel and when its cold its not a good combination

My wife and I probably will, along with a friend(and wife) who is planning on bringing his newly accquired FJ40
I'm not a big fan of getting up at 5am and driving for 4 hrs too hopefully make it there when the park opens.
....can't go at noon....working

I told him the sand dunes are about the best he will be able to play in, anything else and im worried he will be pulling bumper covers off. Perhaps i can talk him into a pre-run at the patlands or something just to see how much he really is willing to do

Big thanks to paps for coming over and helping wrench on the Big Black ugly, I got the front spare drive shaft with the new U-joint in the front, changed out tranny fluid and filter, welded up exhaust header(fixed the cracks). Now just gonna get my 6 person tent, food, get the truck brake booster installed in red truck so I can trailer down the XJ. Been looking at rates for staying there at the badlands, has anyone stayed there ? Do I have to call and prepay ,or can I just show up and pay on the spot?

I think it was like $10 a day per site :? And unless they are super busy you should be fine finding a spot.A call in advance probably wouldn't hurt though.

well i have been told that i shouldnt pull with gumby cause it could cause tranny slippage down the road on my tranny
also been told it should be fine?, would love to pull it with gumby but also would be screwed if i broke down again then i would need to tow 2 vehicles back i had to pull it home with gumby cause it has a 6way plug and our kia only has a 4way

gonna take a wild guess here and say your name is dave? :?

in the 1st page of this thread there is a list of us gonna down friday and those who are going down sat morning.

like orange rubi guy said. the hotel is around 55. might wanna reserve a room tho if your staying there. i think the camping is like $7.00 a nite per person or something like that.

do you by any chance have a rear hitch? you really need to get some kind of recovery points on b4 the trip. shackles yes. straps yes. straps with hooks no. hooks for the jeep...yes...if factory hooks. dont want some jerry rigged thing comin apart on ya over there.

you leaving early afternoon or late? i think we are gonna try to leave around noon.

As far as the trailer goes in the past I have rented them from you haul.They are kinda salty but worth it if you break
something or your rig just is'nt up for a road trip.You will have to call them and reserve one.Go with the car hauler
not the dolly,little more money but worth it. :tu2:

the campsite at the front of the Badlands, if you have a site, you can leave a vehicle during the day right? For instance, if we rolled down friday evening, we could leave a vehicle parked at the site during the day saturday?

I need to modify my plans a bit. Since I sold my truck I'm still looking for something different to tow with and working on some financing. I'll be there but probably not wheelin, just helping with the TREC race in the evening and camping probably saturday evening. Not even sure how I'm getting down there at this point :)

Probably not going down, still recovering from the 8.8 install and gears. Plus I have a few other non jeep trips planned this year that im saving for. And I think its time to put the MJ out of commission again. Probably going to start tear down for the 4.0l AW4 swap in the next couple of weeks.

I may NOT be able to make it this trip. My friend has sold his house and will be moving that weekend. He has a messed up back and can't lift heavy stuff. He's the big guy that was with me last year. I'll have to see what happens.

we usually try to camp to the left of the restrooms, and towards the back as you look at the campground from the office...i haven't called to reserve anything yet tho...

i did pick up 1/2 a truck full of wood from my parents house today.

thats good. I was gonna say, if you were going to try and pull that XJ with a ranger, then ya might as well take a pic and post it right to Pirates's "Big Dumb Loads" thread. Its not that a ranger can't get it up and moving, its the weight bias, and the stopping power that would be scary! I once pulled my TJ with a V8 ZJ, and vowed never to do it again, its not that the ZJ didn't have the power, just to many other scary factors.

well not to :ThreadHijack: this thread but with all of us having to bail on this run, maybe we can do an early or mid summer run. just a thought to be put in the back of the minds of everyone who is not gonna make this one.

Jeep should be wheelable by early-mid summer. I'm up for a run, probably the last chance I'll get.

Had a great time guys! But my curse continues. everytime, at 3 on the go home day, i break. Once again, at 3, on sunday, i was done. Ripped the trac bar/left upper control arm bracket off the rear axle. Also pretty sure my rear shocks are toast thanks to some TREC course running, and ive got something clunking away in the front. But we'll get it fixed and back out there.

Oh, and even though he broke about mid day saturday, Bryan got the ranger fixed first thing sunday morning at the shop and wheeled all day today. That thing actually did damn good. Only had to be tugged out of a high center once, other than that he didnt need any recovery minus tugged outta orange when the 4wd went out saturday

Had a damn good time fellaz.I broke a leaf spring center pin on saturday around 3 bought 2 new ones from the Badlands shop for $11,broke a u-bolt went back to the shop and got a new u-bolt and a nut for free because I had a Badlands sticker :2up: Back on the trail sunday with no issues.I pushed the FlexJ to her limits on sunday afternoon in the quarry the left rear was off the ground a good 5 foot or better and rising fast :eek2: I saved it with some quick thinking and some skinny pedal.I think I pissed myself just a little!


Oh yeah Dick,Lance,Andre :flipoff2: thanks for leaving us yesterday morning within the first 10 minutes on the trail.No one told me we were racing through the park.We were fine with out you of course but leaving half of a 6 rig group was kinda shity IMO.No hard feelings at all fellaz,we had a blast with out ya and there is always next time.

in all fairness, i didnt even realize you guys where wheeling with us sunday. No one told me and since you where off on your own saturday, i figured thats how sunday was going. And i told everyone i was going to look for Jons spring, didnt even expect anyone to follow me at first. Besides, you guys say you TREC style it in ossian, so why didnt ya keep up?

No problem bud I thought we were wheeling together that's why we sat at your camp and waited for you for a half hour then followed you to the trail.I was hauling ass for a minute and losing ryan and chris so I slowed up waiting for them.And speeding around in ossian is night and day from the badlands bumps :) that's why your rig is broke today.I'm not mad by no means bud,it was just a mis understanding on our part,no biggie :tu2:

only busted the pass side veiw mirror off, at least thats the only damage i can see untill the mud comes off. lol

Lance, Andre, and Dick all are future trec racers of tommarow i tell you, Phuc going at speeds like that. IMHO opinion it was unsafe and irresponsible, with all the dirt bikes and atv's around there it was borderline stupid. i am glad we backed off, i would rather not kill anyone with my jeep. :tu2: i am not mad about it, i needed to keep my jeep in one peice to drive it home anyway.

that and we found some nice spots and trails on our own, maybe next time guys.

I dont exactly notice the atvs and bikes showing any regard to speed. Just as much as i need to watch for them, i feel they should watch for me, if not more so since i way out weigh them and if there where to be an interaction between my jeep and an atv, i think the atv would be at the disadvantage. I know when i walk across the street, i make damn sure i stay out of the path of cars, i dont just run around, in and out of the street without regard to traffic, expecting them to stop for me, the way the atvs and bikes blindly speed through trails and over hills. If at any point i couldnt see far enough ahead i slowed down. And i dont feel we went fast enough to cause a problem. We where quite a way from as fast as we could have gone, and the only times i cracked it open where on the open dunes and "roads" where there was plenty of visibility. That, and all the people pre-running the course saturday where scooting along pretty damn quick, much faster than i hit at any point the whole time.

But i apologize for leaving you. Once again i didnt realize you where gonna be following. My bad. Hopefully theres no hard feelings, as i in no way intended there to be any.
