Wassup! Cannot wait till October! Has been a while since I have been on here. Well since last year was a bust. Does anyone have plans to do it again? I do for sure.

Definitely planning on it.
Lots of stuff to get done here with the Caddy swap.

:cool: ummm, YES. Got some medium size axles and 37s to get hung on Wally before then. Gonna need that 208 shifter base too. ;) also just bought another 401. Well, I sold it to Ryan and bought it back yesterday. Twice 401s sitting in the shop. Oh My.

Sorry Flint...time is getting away from me. I never get on here so send me a message on Facebook about the tunnel for the shifter.

Na 401's are overrated. We will race next year hows that sound? Luckily I got a very hot 360 from Elliott for the yj. LOL Not sure I want to mess with your Caddy Tad!

Yj is great and tested, hopefully I do not break anything between now and then. Finding I am liking the skinny pedal way too much. Need to 4 link the rear, have already bent a rear spring, and mount my camper on the trailer, that should be it for me. Jodie and I are looking forward to it. But like this past year things do change so only time will tell.

Are you guys thinking about doing this run about the same time frame as last year? If so I might have to see about juggling a few things.

Sambo

Tom,
Pretty much has worked out that the time right before Halloween has been the best time for us so far. Not too warm but not really cold at night.
I'm sure Michael will get a poll running so we can see what works best for the most.

Hey Sambo...how does a 46 become a CJ3A? Got pic's, curious about the Wag axles on it.
I have a 46 CJ2A, gutted down for the moment.

Sounds good Tad and Sam. I have a few guys I wheel with who are interested in coming with me if I go. Good guys in well built rigs.

The BLM is planning on closing two of the best trails. Patzcauros Revenge and Tabasco Twister. Might not be open next year(2013).
i hope they dont close it before we go later this year:( if so we can run rocotillo,and habenero falls for the extreme bunch

Hello, Im Steve, a long time FSJeeper and this might be my first time speaking up.
Anyways there is always a ton of spilled oil and broken parts left on the trails. The whole area is part of the Rio Grande watershed and they want to keep the water as clean as possible.

Seems like some awareness needs to be brought up to wheelers out there. Thought it was common sense to clean up your spills, but i guess common sense isnt that common.

For years there have always been the back and forth between the BLM and organizations like the SW4WDA. The sad thing is its mostly locals that leave the trails trashy :mad:

thanks for the heads up steve.:thumbsup: i thought it might have been due to the erosion problem on the the 2 trails.been going over there wheeling since 2003
and the entrance to pats has gotten "good in our favor" but bad from an environmental stand point.

dang i can wait to go! might go play today out west of town in the canyons here;) if the wind dont get up to bad:mad:

My dad has a little ranch about 5 miles south box canyon so i basically grew up in that area. i havent been out there in a few years but recently i took the '91 Grand out there for its maiden voyage and was shocked at the roads. I used to go back there in a Pinto, it was very rough even for the Grand.

I still see lots and lots of border patrol out there in 4x4 fords... im thinking they are intentionally keeping the roads extra rough to try to keep smugglers out of the whole area.
