Guys,
We are going to clean up the Saguaro Cove area on Sunday, you're invited. Come out and help clean up a beautiful area. Meet at the Butcher Jones green gate at 9:00 AM. Sign up on the trip and the AZVJC site. Let's do this one.

macinyart, IF my D-shaft comes in this week and I get back from tucson in time I will be there with bells on. I have a full sized truck we can load up. Yes it will make it in and out with no prob. The green gate your talking about is down at the end of the BJ road right? down by the lake?

HMMMMMM, were to go? what trail are you going to do out at TM Bill? FJ sounds like it will be super crowded.

Think of a trail you have always wanted to run, and that will be it.
Saturday morning I am working, shouldn't take much longer than noon though... so it can be after that, but before the Meet and Greet at 5-6 PM, or we can do a night run out there, or push it back to Sunday. Either way, it is completely up to you, since this is your thread. As far as I'm concerned, Anyone else is welcome to come out and run it with us, after you pick the trail, time and date.

I'm interested in this "mystery trail"

Depends on what trail and when. I'd really like to run Predator but I'm up for whatever. Just throwing that out there. There is a chance my friends and I will be installing my PSC armor. So I can't commit just yet.

Geez, it's only a mystery because he hasn't picked it yet, :rolleyes: and you'll just have to stay tuned to this thread, to find out what it is and if you can do it... :rolleyes:

I have about 4 days worth of work to do this weekend but I am sure everyone will understand if I want to go wheel. Sunday sounds real tempting.

03-16-2006, 09:06 PM
ok, ok no more secrets...GEEZ:D, the only reason i am so hesitant is because i was hoping that someone would throw a trail out there and it would probably be good. I just don't know the area well enough to say what trail. i have done terminator before and would like to do something different. but i think predator sounds good..

i can't go sunday because i am going to my brother in-laws house all day..

ok DAY 3/18 time: i think noon, noon thirty because bill has to work in the morn.

there is that better, a more concrete day and time kind of....:D

twstdtj of course anyones invited......provided the rig is capable:cool: .

I fully EXPECT to see each and every one of you in CHURCH on Sunday, beggin' for forgiveness, not out on the trail!! :mad:

I KNOW you all can afford a little time Saturday afternoon!:rolleyes:

Jason, Have you ever run Predator? I want to make sure you are challenged. :D Tell me your setup. :cool:

Bill,
You know Saturday is fabrication day. Sunday is for going out and breaking everything you made on Saturday. Therefore, I will be unable to make it on Saturday. I hope you have a good run and post lots of pics.

Thread high-jack in progress:
My brother and I will be doing a run on Sunday to test and possibly break the stuff we are making for our Jeeps on Saturday. I'm thinking Predator, Judgment Day, etc. Meet at the usual air down spot, around 9:00 AM.......Anyone interested?

*We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread*

My setup is 8 rock krawler LA that is now about a 12",front dana 44, rear 14 bolt, 5.13 front, rear, spool in back Lockright front,on 37's, and exo skel. it should be good to go....i think. I posted the run on the old site.

I haven't run predator

My number is (480)797-2518 if it is easier.

C'mon jamie lets wheel....:D

Cool. WIth all that lift, we should be able to tip you over all the easier. :D

You are set up to run Anaconda and Collateral Damage. Predator and JD are okay for recreational runs but really won't be that big of a deal for your rig. Depends on what you want to do.

The trails ARE my Church! You think I am kidding.

X2 on the challenge thing. That rig sounds like it is set up for more than the run of the mill.

:rolleyes: There's allot more to vehicle setup than what was posted in the original thread opener, Jamie.:rolleyes:

I wanted to make sure I wasn't sticking him out on a limb by offering to run something YOU couldn't! :D

Jason, thanks for replying even though Jamie tried to "C" her way into an "A+B" conversation!

If you want, we can run Predator, then head to a bigger trail or two... time permitting...

You think? You mean to beat on my poor Jeep some more.

I dunno. I have a broken shock and don't want to buy a new one because I have a project in the planning stages that will require all my coins...guess maybe I need to bite the bullet and just buy a shock or two so I can wheel in the meantime.

So...umm...maybe? :D I'd ride shotgun somewhere, take pictures and (what I do best) heckle. :rolleyes:

Things are looking good for me. I should be able to make on Saturday for the Predator run. My only concern now is the forecast for rain. If its downpouring around 11am, I'm not sure if I'll come out to play. It's gonna be cold and rainy all weekend.

Given your level of build, water is what makes JD and Predator actually challenging. :D

Aww, c'mon, your link says "Showers" that's hardly a downpour, and it shows Sunday being partly cloudy... Yup, sounds like you're in! :D

HAHA...this is the last time I mention anything about showers. Tell ya what, it will be damn fun going through some of the TM trails in the rain. I'm really hoping to run Predator with my doors off. I just don't want to get myself soaked.

I'm trying to work on my passenger right now. I have two friends I asked and neither of them would give me a definitive answer. Both of them gave me the BS answer "We'll see"

Anyone else going besides, Wildcat, FlexinXJ and myself? Everyone else thinking about Sunday? All I know is 3 is more then enough for Saturday. :)

Yeah Barry probably can't resist the urge to wheel so he'll probably go out and get a shock. either that or he would make a good right seater.:D

No shock, as they seem to be an oddball size and nobody seems to stock them, so I can either sit out this weekend (I am getting tremors already :eek: ) or nag from the right hand seat. :rolleyes:

Wheeling is out for me on Saturday afternoon anyway. I need to be back in the city by 4:00 pm. For some reason I thought this was coming together for Sunday. I believe I was mistaken on that count. :D

Hey Wildcat

I'm getting things together right now. I'm meeting my passenger at his house in Scottsdale at 10:30 and will then head on up there. I can meet a little bit earlier but not much unfortunately. I'll check the thread again before I leave at 10:15.

See you at TM. It's gonna be an awesome day for wheeling!!!

Thanks. But, we're good. Simon of 4 Wheelers Supply (http://4wheelers.com/) hooked me up with one of his Godfather deals. You know, the ones you just can't refuse. :eek:

Thanks Simon! I now have shocks that will do the trick until the stretch, new suspension and coilovers are in place.
