PostSubject: APRIL 11th RUN   Sat Mar 28, 2009 9:49 pm

Hey all....our April Club run is going to be a one day run on the 11th....the day before Easter.

I know most of us have plans with our families for Easter, but sure hope you'll join us for our run on saturday!!!
We'll have an Easter Egg hunt in the morning and hopefully a good turn-out for dinner that night after the run at the Gooseberry, as we celebrate the Rising of Our Lord and Saviour by breaking bread together.

We'll meet at Rausch Saturday, aired down and registered by 9. We will be doing greens and blues, starting on the WEST property because we think there are some really fun trails down that way and we're usually getting to them late in the day and missing some of them. We definitely want to mix it up a bit as I have to plan runs once a month that do not end up boring people that show up each time! (another reason I'm considering the Pinebarrens very soon....at least there are things to visit there, nice camping and some easy, but fun wheeling!)

See you on the 11th!

So far its:

Me and Chris and Adam (Chris' Nephew)
Clay and Gretchen
Greg and his nephew
Jeff and Angela and Grace (their daughter)
Tom and Machelle and 4 of their kids
Robby



yeah

Pattey,

I've got a commitment at church at 8:00 am on Saturday (the 11th) for a Sacrificial Breakfast. I've got to run the A-V room. We're painting eggs with the grandkids on Friday, so I might possibly be able to make it to RC by 10:30 or 11:00 if I could meet up with you guys.

For now, just list me as a "possible late arrival."

I am out for the 11th. Easter weekend -- preparation for Easter.

Also, I am out for the 18th.

I will be at Rausch on the 25 & 26th for a large multi-club run.

S'up everyone!

I should be able to go to this...and IF I do go, my nephew might ride shotgun with me. He saw the 4Runner the other day in the driveway covered in mud and is dying to go, so now's his chance!

I'll touch base as we get closer to the date.

Later.

PS. Great time on the 3/21-3/22 run, as usual!

As of now I still don't have my YJ back (4+ weeks). After having the gas tank and skid plate replaced--now the fuel pump won't work. So . . . I won't be making the ride on the 11th.

I don't intend to hi-jack this thread, but if you'd like the brief history of what my Jeep has been going through:

In March of '08 I culminated a lot of major damage to the YJ. On April 20, '08, a wrenching party corrected some of the problems, missed some others, and added a two inch suspension lift to my rig. The extra lift threw the drive train angle badly out of whack and I've been suffering with that problem ever since, although some work was done to lessen the vibrations.

On March 7 of this year I developed some major clunking and thumping while on the Christian Crawlers trail ride. The entire next week the Jeep was at a garage to try to determine the cause of the problem, and it was determined that I needed an SYE kit and CV drive shaft.

I had previous plans to take the YJ to Skid Row on March 16 to have rocker panel guards installed. Eric immediately noticed that my transfer case and skid plate had been badly pushed up into the body and that the drive shaft was actually hitting the floor boards and that was the cause of the severe angle. He said the SYE kit and CV shaft wouldn't have solved that problem. So he went about installing the rocker guards and found out that my 1 inch body lift (done a few years ago) was not done properly and had parts missing. When he replaced th missing parts, the rear end would sit back down on the frame due to the badly dented gas tank and skid. He doesn't make a gas tanks skid for a YJ, so I ordered one from Kilby. In the mean time, while working on the transfer case/drive shfat thingy, he discovered that my pinion yoke was shot. He also discovered that my front axle vent was destroyed and that the fan clutch was bad. Saturday when he dropped the gas tank, he discovered a crack in my gas tank and said it should be replaced. Sunday I located a used YJ gas tank at a reasonable price and delivered it to Eric. Today (or was it yesterday, he discovered that the holes in the KIlby skid wouldn't linke up with the holes in the YJ. Since I have one of the very last few YJ manufactured, they had already coverted the cross memeber to that of a TJ. So the YJ gas tank skid would not line up with the TJ cross member. He redrilled the holes and I went to pick up the Jeep at 4:30 this afternoon. Literally, as I was pulling into his driveway, he called my cell phone to tell me not to come, the fuel pump wouldn't work. This current issue with the fuel pump has him stumped and he says that it will take two people to work on it at the same time to find the sollution.

At this point my investment is well over 1K and my reserves are drained (except for emergencies and the Jeep does not qualify as an emergency--no matter how much my grandson loves it!). Bullfrog has offered to take the SYE kit that I purchased in exchange for labor.

I know I've said this before, but I'm pretty sure that I'm going to have to keep off the trails for a little while--at least till I can afford the next calamity.

Awesome, Clay! See you there!

Robby...I believe there's:

Me and Chris and Adam (Chris' Nephew)
Clay and Gretchen
Greg and his nephew
Jeff and Angela and Grace (their daughter)
Tom and Machelle and 4 of their kids
Robby

...and YOU? Can you make it?

The egg hunt will be at the area around the base of the 3 nasty hillclimbs
out by the old entrance. Maybe even in a couple places nearby there.
I'll try to keep out of the prickers!!!! hehehehe We have to find a good spot.

We're starting in the West and doing some goopy stuff. It'll be a good day. I'm trying
really hard not to repeat itinerary too often...but there's no avoiding it at some point!!!

Well, here's the deal...I'm still waiting for my 4Runner to be finished up. After the last RC trip I noticed the D60 rear axle seal was leaking, so, I brought it to my guy to replace the axle seals, both D60 rear & D44 front pinion seals (also both leaking), check the D60 rear disc brakes, and install the D60 rear ARB diff cover (to match the front, and might as well since the cover had to come off anyway!), oh yeah, and kinda "fix" my front bumper that this very nice oak tree modified for me (remember Chris & Pattey?!? laugh ). It is "supposed" to be done on Thursday so I can pick it up Friday morning, and head up to my parents house in the Poconos so me, Terri, Jayelee, and my nephew Justin, can hit the pool and some other stuff before Justin and I leave for RC bright and early Saturday morning. So with that being said, we should be there Saturday morning, unless for some unforseen reason the truck isn't finished. Either way, I will let you guys know back on here Friday before we leave for PA.

Peas out yo! (Like the Jeep thing, it's a Joizey thing, you wouldn't understand!)

PS...remind me to tell you guys about my "new" wheeling rig that I should have in the next few weeks.......... crazy

UGH, not looking too good. My mechanic JUST called me now to ask me questions about the D60 rear for the seals and bearings. He said he pulled the diff cover and it was like milk (thanks to Milkshake and Smoothie!). He has to replace the bearings, but since it is a custom Dynatrac D60 axle, I don't really have the specs on it...I do somewhere, but I had it built 13 years ago and would have to dig for it. So he's going to call Jim McGean @ Dynatrac and try and get the info. So IF he either can't get it or can't get the parts, I won't be going on Saturday. I'm really not too happy with him right now. He's had the truck since last Saturday and is just now, on Thursday mid-moring, asking me about it? Again, UGH. confused Might be time to go full-width D60 front and 14 bolt rear and keep it simple?

...stay tuned...........

All I have to say is YOU BETTER KICK HIM IN THE REAR AND GET TO RC!!

Just kidding, that sucks. I would not spend $$ on new axles until you break them. When we pulled mine to look at the aussie it was pretty milky too. I am staying away from water for awhile.
