    hell if vegas was on the way i'd go there first too! just may not get out in one piece...

    hopefully should have my suspension all setup by the time you roll into CO, so depending on snow, hope to get some dirt on the truck if we can find a trail that isn't buried in snow

    That would be sweet. What setup are you going with again? And a little dirt never hurt. I wouldnt mind taking the Jeep I'm gonna have with us up Carnage Canyon while were there.

    Sounds kinda like what we will be towing. Ill have the inlaws jeep on a trailer behind the taco and they will have their camper behind the Duramax and then the rest of the trucks coming up will be around too. Should be a nice little convoy.

    Hey, Cloudy, about what speed are we planning on as cruising speed on the highways? Just curious, because I may not be able to keep up if I get my 5.29s in.......... hahaha

    I'm thinking I may be traveling 65-70mph and definately not over 75. :eek: lol Maybe I should just leave in the morning and watch the convoy pass me as I putter past Aztec! hahaha :eek::( lol

    I like to drive around 65, also we will be on 550 which has a speed limit of 55-60 I believe (ask Jim, he found out the speed limit the hard way:D).

    You'll be good. 550 is 60mph I believe and I will be doing about that. Like I said today I will have the 4.56 gears and will also be towing that jeep on a trailer. So no super high sppeds for me.

    Make it happen buddy. So I was thinking.....it is a bout a 6.5 hour drive and I was thinking that we could take off about 630ish in the morning on Wednesday? We would all meet up at the home depot at 550 and 528? What does everybody think about that?
