I chose that one myself…
I am well-aware of my status on this Away Mission :P :lol:


As for the ‘Guy with the Steering Wheel’ sticker…
Doug, you could really get a lot of mileage out of that one, if (when not racing) you wore the steering wheel on a chain around your neck, ala Flav-O-Flav

– Yawl, check dis out, Yo! :lol:

To be fair, the ‘fleamarket’ in-question is a 7-day-a-week, indoor/air-conditioned (12 large steel buildings) sort of affair… The guy runs a pretty sweet operation out of his 20’x20’ cubicle – and Doug is right, he is a very cool dude :cool:

Does anybody have any pics of the Rocky Mountain Loop trail so we can get an idea of what you'll be wheeling on? I went to the Uwharrie national forest site and they had maps, but no pics of the trails that I could find.

I'm taking a lunchbreak.

It's been a long morning ,but I've gotten alot done, so far I have mounted both horn switches....(It kinda sounds like someone is strangling a big duck :lol: )

Passengerside

Image


driverside,I know the switch is kinda getto...........but it beats the bicycle
ringer I thought of installing :wink:

Image


Also mounted the switch for the rear dust light,used the factory hazard location

Image


and I installed front shocks and tierods.
still gotta fix the toein.........probabley do that at the campground.

Image

also finished (for real) all the dang wireing and got all the padding in place.

got all the bolts in for fuel tank.(there were only a couple holding it down)

put a couple bolt's in the passenger seat.


It's going to be a long afternoon.

Doug put the finishing touches on. Check all the fluids, and make sure your winch works.

You'll be fine.

Ok done for the day

did some odds and ends and grooved my two new used tires :P

5-0 stopped by :shock: Im like WTF? maybe he thinks it's cool.........
nope someone called and said some guy is waving a gun around in his driveway :roll: ...............I really hate subdivisions........I told the cop
I wasn't waving a gun around I was grooving a tire.

The look on his face was one of just plain stupidity and I explained what I was doing.When I reached down to show him my tire groover,that's when the pcs clicked....... :roll: :roll:
Image
he wasn't even interested in the truck.....
any ways I got pissed an *&%^$# and put everything up,piss on it I need to relax so after this I'm off to the hottub :wink:

1st cut on tires
Image

Walla' one brand new used "Blaire witch tire"

Image

This pattern works real good on this truck.

Saved some lbs. and helped out the tire flex alot

It looks like I will be arriving some time Wednesday -- I'm not sure exactly what time, but with any luck the Uber Shelter should be up before sunset (or partially so, at the very least).

hahaha, she LOVED her lift kit, new front tires and Alinment,
she farted the last of her wob-webs last year when I gave her a new Straight Exhaust system, 2 and 1/2" with a new Cat, twp diff mufflers (blew one up)
she worked her legs out good when i gave her a new Fuel pump, 5 buck each Spark plugs, new Fuel Regulator,
I think she enjoys her Oil changed with mobile one every other month.


next "sex toys" for her will be a Low end cam, header.....
she keeps telling me rear locker and maybe an SAS,

does your amigo talk to you too????????
or am I the crazy one.....
Some times i think she plants idea's in my head...

also!
Does your wife or GF get REALLY mad thinking you love your Zoo more then her......cause you buy her toys and play with her..
the zoo that is.....


oh gosh i sound crazy...

It’s confirmed -- I will be there Wednesday, in the AM.

I picked up a couple of new ropes – and the Rodeo is mostly packed… just a few stray odds and ends left to collect and load – and maybe fund a couple of things that I’ve misplaced in the move(s), like ALL of my summer clothes :roll: --- Other than that, I’m ready to roll! 8)

Certainly ‘not unheard of’ :lol:
-- but actually, I think Doug was in Bristol, VA.


Sure hope you can make it!



Also…
Just to clarify:

Anyone know how the lowrider (and the other Zu's) is doing in the big song and dance? Hope they are kicking some butt!

Post race update

Lowrider performed perfect,I wouldn't change a thing.

Except maybe some 34's :wink:

Front double shocks smoothed out all the jumps and bumps and the rear soaked up everything great.

Didn't need the cage :D

And for the haters(not on this board) that thought the cage was over kill.........waaaaa.......I'd put more tube and tie in the front,it's kinda scarey doing 45mph with trees and rocks flying by.

not sure wher we finished but ran a 10.22 in the lowest truck out there.

We beat half of the C class rigs (not JoeD.)

reckon we finished 10-20 not sure yet.

It was the most awesome 10 1/2 minutes ever.
