That is NOT true
WE (I mean that in the multiple sense of the word) spent much more time working on his Jeep ON the trail than OFF the trail

Alex, not a problem. I expect you to replace it with a new one and give me the "spare" back when we are on the trail again. This way I know that you were able to get it all fixed back up

Re: Northwest Fest photos

Here are some of the photos I got. The trip was pretty fun but I wish I would have arived a hour ealier Friday so I could have got another run in! Man was the drive home hot, I had no problems over heating but with all the windows down and no A/C it felt like it was 130* inside the Jeep. The metal on my shifter handle was so hot you could only touch it for a seconds. I have never been that hot in a vehical before!



The view on the drive up to Naches, I believe it was White Pass. 80* and alot of snow.




Avanteone. Went right up the first time but couldn't get it the second time.


ComancheKid trying the same climb.


A small part of the Jeeps that attended NW Fest.


Cool mud picture.




Andy and Rod catching up.


Some tire lifting action for 2xtreme!


Joe going up the same ledge, longarms made it easier do to the front end unloading less.


Me Climbing up Funny Rocks.


I forgot who this was but he had a sweet 1 ton V8 ZJ.


Rod on the right and Andy on the left. Here is what Andy said before attempting this ledge in his XJ. "I will try it what the heck, I won't break anything!"



Here is the outcome.


Note to anyone else out there who uses lift or lowering blocks. Throw them away! This kind of damage happens all the time when blocks are used. The damage was wasted shocks, u-bolts, blocks, and driveshaft u joint. I drove Andy into town which I believe was almost 40 miles away, picked up some parts, and came back to camp. Rod had fixed his driveshaft U joint "Thanks" while we were gone. Ken, Naxja member Los Lobos, Andy and I headed up to fix the broken Jeep. Everything went pretty smooth and we even had time to drive up to Moon rocks to check out the awesome view from the top at night. Hopefully Andy caught his flight back to visit his Dad.



We really didn't do any wheeling Sunday we just headed home. I ended up taking a forest service road a few miles from The Dalles that took us within a few miles of the Mt Hood Meadows exit off of highway 35. It was quite fun driving down this road in the middle of no where drifting corners, not a car or house in sight plus it was not near as hot as it was on I84.

I was actually going to get you a new one, but I think what I am going to do is go with an Aluminum rad, I found some for $263 which doesnt seem that bad. If anyone else has a suggestion for a good replacement heavy duty radiator please let me know.

Willy and Dustin, the wiring diagram with the relay would be helpful as well as the type of radiator you put in Willy's jeep.
