Unfortunately I'm probably not going to have money for a trailer that soon. I'll have to see if I can borrow Doug's or see if your brother will rent me his or something. The good news is allison is totally on board for not selling the expo to fund the house so I don't have to divorce her ass.

I'm contemplating a Rubicon run this summer if anyone wants to meet up. I work weekends though so it'll more than likely be during the week.

Well my schedule has changed so I will no longer be working weekends. I'm almost done with the won ton swap so I'll be up and running this next week hopefully. I will post a date on my trip before I go.

Alright guy this is bs! The NorCal chat thread used to be the most active thread on trs! Now, no posts in over a year! I’m also to blame. Two kids and a mortgage got in the way. I still have the ranger, now on tons and 40’s with a exo cage and never gets used. I built a 5.0 explorer on tons and 37’s foe the fam. What’s every one up to? Who wants to wheel? Doing the rubicon September 18th if anyone wants to join.

I work T,F,S in San Andreas and live in Nevada. I could drive the Ranger to work and meet you guys on the trail on a Sunday.
