loaded but not ready. hooked water up for the 1st time......city water connection behind breaker box leaks. water rolled under wall across tub and pooled up in the bathroom. all cleaned up and have a fan drying it for 24 hrs but i will have to pull that connection apart and see what i can do. worst case i fill the fresh tank and run off the pump.

pulled the city water connection out. it turns out it doesnt leak when its not attached to the camper lol the plastic body is crap. i will have to order a good one that has a brass body. so for now i think i have the leak fixed but prob just need to run off my fresh tank and pump to be safe. if water pressure is as poor as it was on a couple trips i'll be better off doing that anyway lol

i will have to leave a day late as work went crazy with 50 cars vandilized sat and sun.  everyone have a safe drive and a fantastic trips. see you all there wensday.

it does!  a whole lot less room than the fiver for sure but getting comfortable as i get my mods done. no way i could get them all done before the trip. getting parts was tricky with  all the shipping delays and plants shut down.  the lower angle on the ramps is nice but having a 1st gear makes a huge difference in loaading  LMAO

I'm limited to short runs on big buggy. Need bigger oil coolers and fans on torque converter. The mofo is a fun ride though. 90 in the whoops with a lot left on trail to North gate. WTF,that's in 3rd gear. What will 5th be in the open desert?? I doubt the rangers will be understanding if caught now. LOL!!!!!!!!

fast was definately missed for sure. all in all another great trip! fabrs rail ran flawlessly from what i saw. enemyns ran the best it ever has. nice job guys!! mine has more power and performance than it ever has ........until the electrical issues started. i will be replacing my fuse block with a better one and checking a few things. also need to get my manifold sealed and keep the bolts from backing out. big daves rail ran great until the cv incident. allens rail ran good until he blew 2nd gear. brianN......a real shame you couldn't make it as well as budlight69.  mike and jerry showed along with a couple friends. had some very strong wind the first day so the sand was dry and the smoothest i have seen it in a long time, until thurs lol.  place was packed friday with a lot of everything.

it doesnt matter if you havent used a spare part in 2 or 10 years........dont leave it behind  LMAO    on top of an electrical issue i had a tie rod issue. luckily taylor left a day later so he was kind enough to bring me the spares i have not needed in 7 years. i tried to straighten it but it bent back right out the gate.

Yep ,a great trip all in all. Hoping to see Fast back at it soon!! I must say it was fun finally being able to enjoy the "new" car. Still getting used to it but I did do a few mild wheelies and saw some air time as well. I think someone said enemy got some vid of it. I'd appreciate seeing it if so.

Soooooo,when is the next trip??????
