    Sweet. I may have More help than expected. As of now I will have to take my truck to a buddies house to weld the tire gate spindle and latch. He is not too far from my place but I will still have plenty to do in addition to the gate.

    I may try to stay around here. I need to get my zero gauge wire crimped once I figure out how long the pieces need to be when the winch and bumper are mounted. I will probably do that first thing Friday evening so I can swing by my friends audio shop to use the big crimper. If something changes with my buddy helping I may hit you up.

    Would it helped if one of us (I'll volunteer if need be) handled getting the wire cut and crimped Saturday while others are working on the truck? Divide and conquer right?

    I plan to just place the bumper on before painting just to get wire measurements. Then will run the stuff by my friends shop or his house depending on time. Get them crimped so they are ready for final install on Saturday. If I have to leave the wires on Friday night and pick up Saturday, Zech you can probably swing by after the airport and grab them. His audio shop is pretty much on the way.

    Sounds like a plan to me. I received my brewing package today; doesn't look like there is anything I will have to have this weekend.

    I wanted to hold off to comment to this. But I won't be able to make it, unless someone wants to come over and trailer my rig up for me.

    I'm working Saturday, but may try to sneak over to Aarons for a few minutes to see how things look.

    Well. If you happen to be headed up, and happen to be pulling a trailer. I'd be happy to put something on that trailer for you.

    Not this time. trying to save some money, and those are $60 a day. I'm gonna save that fund up for next year. I also have a trailer fund going. Gonna save a $1000, and go shopping. I should be able to have that, maybe by Jambo.

    It is surprising how expensive it is to rent or borrow a trailer. Borrowing my Dad's trailer is free except for the tank of gas to get it and take it back.

    And the tires you have to replace when they blow out! :D


    I figure if I spend $1000 on a nice trailer, it'll start paying for itself in 9 months. Where i won't have to spend anything on the thing, except upkeep. Those numbers get me on the trails 2 times a month!

    The trailer does have a spare now. My $100 was a "donation" towards it. I figure to get a trailer next year to increase my wheeling also.
