Just took Fred around the block. Found I have to adjust steering stops, move the rear hangers forward to center rear axle, put interior back together and get wheel spacers for the rear. (New wheels have wrong offset.........) Install mud flaps weld exhaust and install finder flairs. I hate building against the clock. I still have to get the camping gear found and call the campground for my dad and fix his truck. Crying or Very sad 

     Kevin did you get the new motor fired yet? I'll see if I can swing by this weekend to help.

Not started yet, but it's trying.  Talking to Mike, it looks like we're missing a sensor, but we're going to get together again Thursday night and look at the wiring again and see what we can make happen.

Still trying to figure out the exhaust, too.  The collector has 2.25 pipe, the crossover is 2.5, and then the stock exhaust is 2, so I've got a bunch of monkeyrigging there to make that all work together.  And some jerkface stole my welder to do his own exhaust  Evil or Very Mad.  I wish I had the bucks to take it into an exhaust shop and just have them run me 2.5 from the header back.

Big projects still on the list are finalize the engine wiring, weld up the sliders, and wire the winch.

The Bastard will not be ready in time for Moab.  Looks like I'll be the stockest truck of all of us.

False. You have a locker and better tires than I do.

Looks like my brother-in-law will be joining us after all.  He is driving to Moab right now to meet up with a guy from Colorado to buy his XJ.  It's on 37's with full width axles and lockers.  I'm excited he's joining us - he's one of the coolest guys I know.

I'm pretty much done.  For some reason, I couldn't get my passenger's side locking hub to go back on.  After tinkering with it for awhile, now it won't even engage when I twist it to 4x4.  So...I ordered a new one - should be here Monday.  I went ahead a put my old shocks back on the rear - I'll fiddle with the new ones when I get back.  I got the front driveshaft clearanced and installed.  Still have to bleed the brakes...

I had the same problem with the hubs on mine did you make sure you put the tabs that hold the spring goes in the two wide teeth on the hub itself?

You're both rockin' armor though, that makes a huge difference.

Only a couple days until go-time!

Just a reminder to bring about $37 a head for the campground. I know that some of you aren't staying the full four nights, but it's just $35, and we have to pay for a full group for the full four nights or we don't get the group rate. It's wonky I know, but much easier than trying to figure out who has to pay more and who pays less based on which nights everybody is showing up.

If you're not staying the whole time, we'll exempt you from buying firewood, or buy you dinner or something.

Got room for one more?

Post by BigFishAllDay on Sun Apr 20, 2014 10:48 pm

Hey guys,

I'm sure that very few of you know me, but I've been following the planning thread on T4R.org, where I post regularly.  I know it's last minute, but I wanted to see if you guys have room for one more.

I checked out the google doc, so I figured I'd post the relevant info on me:

Name: Nick

Rig: 2001 4Runner 4WD, lifted, 285's, rear locked, full armor, winch.

Schedule: I would be leaving ABQ, NM around noon on Thurday 4/24 and arriving in Moab between 6-7PM Thurs night.  I can stay until Sunday afternoon, leaving around 2pm at the latest.  I am game for the planned  trails already setup for each day.  I have run 7-Mile, Kanes Creek, Hells Revenge, and Fins 'N Things on a previous trip to Moab, so I have some potentially helpful experience. I checked out the campground... it looks fine to me, and I'd be glad to pitch in the $37.

Gear:

-Full set of tools
-8K Winch, snatch block, chain, shackles, etc
-2X OEM CV Axles (for 3rd gen T4R's)
-Misc. Spare Parts/Fluids/Nuts/Bolts/Clamps/etc, etc.
-Tow Straps/Snatch Straps
-Air Compressor
-CB Radio
-Fire Extinguisher
-Hi-Lift Jack
-Basic First Aid Kit & Emergency Supplies
-Etc.

This is my rig:

You are more than welcome to come crash the party! I won't be there until Friday night most likely but if any of the other guys on here have a problem with you showing up then I'll fight them.  Mad we'll just have to have a good third gen plus Andrew party since the grey bastard will be MIA (sorry Kevin).

Also, welcome to our band of misfits on here. It seems like we are getting more and more out of state guys. Haha and I must say that I really love your build thread on t4r. org and your rig was my inspiration for just cutting my bumper and flipping the hitch instead of scrapping it all together.

Need to compile a final headcount so I know how much to give the lady at the campground.  Here's who I've got showing up (and when) - everybody sound off and let me know you're coming, how many you're bringing with you, and when we can expect you.

Kevin and Ian (Wednesday)
Andrew and Kallen (Wednesday)
Andrew's BIL?  Plus how many?  Showing up when?
AJ +1 (Wednesday) (AJ, is your dad bringing his trailer and renting his own spot for that, or is he tenting it with the rest of us?  If he's with us I need to add him and your mom to our headcount)
Brady (Thursday night?)
Nick (Thursday night)
Bill +? (Thursday?)
Brad (Friday night?)
Erin and hubby (Friday night?)
Mike (Friday night?)

I'll be down Friday morning, probably leave super early so I can meet you guys on the trail.  When/where is the Friday morning run?

And..........

I think the coolness of our forum just went up a notch.  Just want to say welcome to a LEGEND from T4R:  BigFish!!!! cheers

We were talking about you meeting us at the Sevenmile Rim trailhead, weren't we?

I still think you should come down late Thursday night.
