So Rick,

This will be Sat night, right?

If not, then it will be a very late Friday night. I should be up there by 10:00 PM.
I got a new job and have to actually work now. I get off at 4:15, pick up my son, then wait for traffic to die down. Probably leave OC around 7:00 PM.

Interested in going, but I have yet to put my XJ through it's paces and I don't know if it's capable of clearing Bull without breaking. I've only run Bill in a Mitsu.

33's, stock gears, RE 4.5", stock front skid/TCskid/fuel skid.

Capable of making it without busting C-clips or crushing rockers? Please let me know. If so, I'd be in. Thanks!

This is going to be a night run. I'd like to have proven rigs, locked and ready.
It would be nice to have a smooth run through it, so its probably not the best time to give it its run though.

Nothing. Head is off because of pinhole leak. Waiting on the replacement to arrive.

Done plenty of night runs, I gathered that much. ;) But no worries, this truck is new to me and I don't know it's capabilities yet so I totally understand.

I'm gonna go cry myself to sleep on my huge pilla' :bawl::laugh:

There are always spare seats at a night run....wait, I should rephrase that;
We normally pack the crap out of the Jeeps..
ask Josh (amongst many others here) about how many people can be packed into a Cherokee, especially when you need to leave a broken Jeep on the trail overnight!

(for those that wern't there.... the front drivers side wheel is about 4' off the ground in this shot..... Rick did it first... I only did it so he couldn't call me a pussy! Kyung spotted us off, and it was a hell of a ride...your junk would nearly stand on its nose, and liberal application of the skinny pedal was required to keep you right side down. This shot is just before you drop! )

That definitely was awesome!!! The bottom edge of the picture is where the driver's front tire meets the earth again. And at the same time the passenger's front comes off the edge that it's just going over in the pic. That was :guitar: :guitar: :guitar: :guitar: :guitar:but could have been :explosion

The night run was a lot of fun. It was Rick, Josh, Mike G, Mike (SanDiegoXJ), and me.

Before we got to the first rock garden, Rick's tire kicked up a small log that punctured his fuel line. Got that fixed pretty easily. But it still wouldn't start. Turned out to be a bad electrical connection.

Rick and Mike G were both running low on fuel at this point. So it was almost decided that the run should be aborted. But we continued on and flew through the trail pretty quickly, with no more incidents.

The trail is definitely different at night. It was hard to see at times with the darkness and flying dust. But I was able to finally test out my IPF lights.
