There are a few on here. There is a bunch of members from Rochester over on rangerpowersports. I used to live in Oswego and would go to meets in Rochester all the time.

ya its actuly right around the corner from me where i live in lancaster. its Dunn tire raceway park. they have drags, circle track and then the 4x4 park. its got rock crawl section and couple mud pits as of now. the tracks have been around for years but the 4x4 park they just made in the past year or so since the new owners have come around. but ive hurd they are guna make some trails and rumors of a staduim truck track and start to have some racing on that or something along those lines. ive been out there for the mud bogs and def. had a great turn out and was a great time.

ya thats funny no more then a year ago it was total opposite with the exchange rate or money dif. lol whats wrong with the truck?

but that would def. be awsome if we could get a meet together this summer. ill have to look into if they are gunna be having anymore of the 4x4 events at the local track by my place cuz that would be perfect for a meet and go up there. or even just to get a good group together and have a cook-out/BBQ maybe.

yeah i was going to sell my truck so i took off the lifts and everything, got stock tires....aaaand then i get in an accident and my insurance forks out $10,000 to fix it...i went from getting 10,500 for my truck to 4,500 so needless to say i kept it. plus, if i sold it, i would miss it WAY too much. she'll be pretty again. all in due time tho...

Theres me, and Dan and Dan. Thats pretty much all of the 'regs' that hang out together. To the OP, youd probably recognize my truck as I have a very distinct looking ranger complete with a newly forming rust hole :(

Could possibly be looking at getting either a new bed, or factory fender flares at some point with in the next 2 years. However the Ranger is pretty far down on my list of priorities at this point.

Dan, the sandblaster will be up and running with in the next 2 weeks. So if you have something to blast, let Dan know, and we can do everything at once. I have a few things I wanna blast as well.

The OP, hit me up on AOL instant messenger: i humped ur cat

As of right now, I have a set of gauges to go into the ranger, new seats, new steering wheel, an oil change, a good waxing, some minor painting... lights to fix, wiring to replace LOL lots of crap to do on the ranger, however that whole 'complete lack of motivation' as far as the ranger goes kinda puts it on hold. Have way too much other crap to do... like work on my new trailer.
