Spring 2012 Florida Meet Planning Thread

Well being we haven't had a meet since November it's time to get another meet going. For the spring meet I'm thinking lets go back to ONF. But this time less pavement more trail. I guess we can do hot-dogs and burgers. We can all bring something to the meet like we have before and meet up at a store and get the rest.. Let's go ahead and set a date sometime in May so everyone can make arrangement's s to come.

If you have 2wd, just make sure you have a hook on the front or something on the back.

tow hooks came standard on edges (4wd frame), but I'm sure you can fab them to fit, or there might be a bolt hole all ready for it.

okay so all this talk about hooks got me thinking.... i have a reese hitch sitting in my room. i gave to my friend cuz it fits a f150 not a ranger. but i did that a year ago for him... i asked him tonight if he still wants it. if not ill weld it to the front of the truck

it's knock on wood lol I did some research about 2wd non edges and it looks like we lack a crossmember in the front for towhooks.

True. I can always use a small rope and hook under the truck I used to do before I got a Reese hitch and there's plenty of space to do some and it won't mess up anything at all not even if they ****** you..... I've used this trick on my truck and my body dylans truck and his moms car....
