Icon12 KRocks--need a passenger

Who in Texas wants to hit Katemcy with me June 12-14th? Hell take your Ranger too!! Jacob (shadow905) is!

they need to be willing to get out and unlock/lock the hubs ALL the time since my tires are like drag slicks on granite.

My buddy is heading out with me Friday morning, but he has to leave at like 1 or 2 on Saturday. You can either hop in the bed and ride from obstacle to obstacle, or I'm sure you can find a seat in someone elses rig. The wheelin community out here is very good, if someone has an open seat i have never seen someone been turned down for wanting to ride in it.

granted my truck may be out of spare parts by the time i'm done with it friday.. everyone should come anyways, its the LAST WEEKEND EVER! the lease is up on the land and the family is closing it to the public.

I just plan on running "aggie highway" which is the easiest trail there, maybe water fall, but besides that i'll probably spend most of my time just watching buggies and built rigs do stupid stuff.

heres some pics.

he wants to put them in this weekend, I'll probably be heading down there to get some axle shafts, maybe help him put them on if I dont work too early sunday.

why not come out? no need to wheel the ranger, just bring it out.. everyone will be in awe that rangers could ever look so badass

brandon told me earlier that he is going to be wheeling his f150 if he gets a new transmission in time. is that who your passenger is? or your other buddy?
