Dunno if we are taking the J10 or the Waggy.

Kinda leaning towards the waggy because it has more room, but I dunno if I trust the engine... The J10 is always 100% ready for an extended trip, but no room since it's a truggy on 42's.

Well I was thinking about camping, then going into town to shower up ever couple of days. That's what we usually do.

But if everyone is lodging, that is cool too. If we are lodging, then I will almost certainly take the J10 and then climb over some big rocks

Well, I blew the outer axle shaft on my wagoneer over the weekend. It has a life time warranty so I should be good there but it's going to take up to 8 weeks to process the claim. It looks like I'm out.

Ouch!

Outer shafts are pretty universal, unless you have a really custom setup. I could bring you a couple of outers if you want. I also have a ujoint tool that makes pressing the ujoints much easier.

Camping isn't much easier..I noticed ALL the sites were filled up, even the remote ones. I ended up doing a bit of guerrilla camping way out somewhere I won't mention I'm sure someone saw my fire, but it would have taken a helicopter to find me by it I'd plan on lodging..watch out for bedbugs :P

Was hoping you were saying you are in Ryan.

Busted stub shafts are part of the Moab experience too. Seen them changed out on the trail.

It's not so much the availability of the shaft. It the warranty process. The website says it may take 8 weeks to process.

I took lots of time off work, so I'm pretty flexible. If I have someone to 'wheel some hard stuff, I will most certainly take the J10.

Camping or hotel?

Wife and I are coming. J10 won't be ready ( ) so her JK will have have to suffice. First timers for Moab, anything we "need" know/expect prior to coming?

That would be cool.

It's only a 6 hour drive for me. Still planning to drive the J10. Thinking about leaving Longmont CO on the morning of Wednesday the 18th.

Will anyone be going through Colorado on I70 that day?

I haven't ruled out going yet (pending TBI install). I would probably leave on Weds as well.

Bah - you don't need TBI to do Moab. My J10 has a carb (TA670)

lol, very true, i have done Moab half a dozen times or so ,carb'd, in three different FSJ's. What I should have said is that I was planning on taking this year off but I am excited about doing the TBI swap and if I can get it done and tuned before Moab I may go to test it out. I was hoping to do my SOA/SF too but I am having trouble finding some parts and I don't have all the parts yet.

The part I am having the hardest time finding is axle shafts for my HP D44. I have an 8-lug setup from a 78 F-250 that I want to swap in while I am doing the SOA/SF but it didn't come with the front axle shafts.

The other missing parts are just waiting on funds:

High steer arms
Drag link and tie rod for high steer
D60 missing all brake parts (was thinking of going disc in the rear)
8-lug rims

Well I actually have all of those parts, but I would have to strip my waggy to give them go ya. That FSJPARTS guy has the HP D44 shafts. He wants $150 plus shipping for them.

You can make the drag link out of DOM and use some ES2010L and ES2010R TRE's, assuming you get some arms off ebay made for chevy 1 ton.

I'm prolly gonna go with discs on the waggy soon and will give you the stock D60 brakes if you want them.

Can't help you with rims (well I do have a set of crappy 8 lug rollers...)

I will be hitting the yards on Saturday, looking for those shafts. If I find them, I would loan 'em out to ya.

Funny you mention FSJPARTS. I already PM'd him and he wasn't sure if he was going to part or not. I haven't heard from him since. Hoping he will

Thanks for the offer on the brakes, if I haven't found any by the time you convert I might take you up on that. Rims are fairly cheap so I will probably wait until I get close to doing the SOA/SF. Question for ya, do you know if 15" rims will work on these axles? I believe a stock F250 8-lug was 16". Would save me some serious $ if I dont have to buy new tires too.

Unless a miracle happens and I win the lotto I doubt I will have the SOA/SF done before Moab but I will definitely have it done before Ouray. I plan on selling my 6" Hell Creek springs to help offset some of the cost. Right now I am concentrating my efforts on the TBI since I have pretty much all the parts.
