I am definitely out. The money just isnn't there. I'm going to try to get better prepared for a fall run.

Well unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to make the trip. I'm not happy about it at all but I've just had too many issues come up with the truck. I just don't think the suspension can handle it right now and I still haven't discovered if I have an issue with the wheel bearings. The truck has started making lots of odd noises everytime I hit a bump and there are some new vibrations while I drive. I've been planning on replacing all the bushings eventually but I did not expect to need to do it so soon. I just can't afford to fix the truck right now and I surely can't afford to fix the truck and also pay for fuel for the trip. Sorry guys. Hopefully I will be able to make the trip later this year. If those that are still going would like the. GPX file of the route just let me know and I can send it your way. :(

I've got a D30 we could slide in there. It would cost the same to install it as fixing your front end.


Moohahahahahahahaha.....

Well its a sad sad month. I sold my ranger. I was very tight on money, so it had to go. That means that I will not make the trip, but it sounds like most others can't make it either. The good news is, I am going to look at another ranger tomorrow. I know I just sold my other one, but this one is very cheap and I can build it up just the way my old one was over time.

That sounds good. Its a shame we are going to miss out on some nice weather. Fall weather is always great too. If anyone comes across a cheap 4x4 ranger in oklahoma let me know. Running or not.
