ahhhhh.... Makes complete sense. Take it to a shop. That is what i did. When i got burnt out, I took out a personal loan, dropped the truck off, and paid someone to stress out on all the little stuff.

Now that i got it fixed, I'm out at least once a month for at least a day or two. Like this weekend, we are going to Lake Tahoe, CA to wheel the Rubicon.

You got a little over a month to get that sum bitch working, then i am going to have to come show you how to wheel it

Maybe we will come up to bad lands for the shakedown run instead of Harlan....

Lol, I dont doubt you could show me up. You terrain is far different and superior to ours. The badlands would be nothing like you run.

Im not getting any loans except to buy a house. LOL, priorities. Most of my issues I can figure out its just a matter of taking the time to do so.

I'm just messin' with ya Zach!

I thought Badlands had some pretty gnarly stuff too?

As far as "superior", i wouldn't say that. You guys have big *** rocks too. Only difference is you guys have mud on them to make them slick.... I think it requires a lot more skill to wheel in the woods than in the desert

The quarry has some pretty cool stuff in it. But nothing like Wellsville. Ive been to both and prefer Wellsville but its 5-6hrs away vs the 3 to the Badlands.

Its been so dry here I dont think the Badlands is too wet. If it gets wet then I would agree rocks/mud is harder than dry rocks.

There are so many places id love to wheel around here its just finding the time and people that want to go with you.

Went wheeling once with it. Might as well try to sell it and build a shop so I can work on a project there.

Tow rig needs a little work, need a trailer, need a shop, priorities change, should have known that when I got it lol
