Heck YEAH!

Hello,
I am at Eielson! Haven't done a lot of trails in this area though. Just really got my truck able to tackle some and I discovered last night I really need a locker! And breakup is most likely several months off. Last year it was about April...... But the aluvial mud here is indeed FUN!!!!!! Though a bit of a pain to make it let go of the truck. That stuff is sticky! Love to meet up with another TRS member!

Hey man, Yeah it would be fun to meet some other TRS members up here. Maybe when the TRS Banner Finally makes it up to AK (if it does) we can all meet up. As for Memebers up in your area I'm not sure who all is there... I think AKBroncoII might be up there again, aswell as STRGVER or however you would spell his name. Then LIMA BEAN is closer to Anchorage as well as me and um... Jeff forgot his online name is also in anchorage somewhere.

Well,
I you come by Eielson I can show you my 88 BII with the 4.0 and drive line from a 92 Explorer. All dropped right in and took just a little wireing tinkering to have it running like a kitten, until it sits outside in the cold. Still chasing that gremlin before I drive it.

Hehe sorry For some reason I thought you were the OP. The TRS banner is something they thought up this summer where there is a banner was sent to the east coast to get signed by memebers and they drive to meet other members who sign it and take it to other memebers, its like a relay race accross the states with a banner.
