    Yeah Apple GPS sucks. He has done all the set ups on my previous rigs. Been please with service and knowledge. Gonna get a unit for the taco eventually but most my time spent in the woods is done solo so haven't really needed it. If i start doing more meets and trips with people then it will be necessary.

    Well...poop. That all makes sense. And the one time I tested my cheapo 12v air compressor, it didn't really seem to do much. And now it's only 2 days away. :(

    Flipped through the last 10 pages or so... seems like a few backed out for Tahuya. Who all is still in for sure???

    I'd like to tag along. Leaving from Seattle so I'll probably just going to catch the Bremerton ferry and meet in Belfair.

    Snow is terrible right now, went out last weekend and it was no fun and we haven't gotten any fresh stuff since.

    I'd enjoy hitting some of the harder stuff at Tahuya. I don't mind helping some of the less seasoned guys. It really shouldn't be to much of a cluster as long everyone is on the same page. Tahuya is pretty easy even in a completely stock truck, there are a few good challenges for more equipped rigs like the rock gardens and yellow jacket hill. It would make for some good spectating for those willing to try.

    Anyone got an idea of an updated list for Sunday? If so, add me to it.

    Mike brings up some good points! I have found that turning the front wheels will help keep your truck from sliding.

    I am sure someone in the group will have a good compressor, if you ask nicely, and offer liquid tribute :D

    I ordered a Viair 85P. Their site indicates it should work for my size tires. Guess the proof will be in the pudding. It should be here on Saturday...kinda like to have my own equipment.

    And a logistical question: On a run like this, what do females do in the way of a bathroom? This is a state park, right? Are there outhouses? My copilot will most likely want to know and not want to hear "Here, use this Gatorade bottle".

    Week chocks aren't necessarily there to stop a truck from moving forward, but will certainly help, and if one is in the situation, extra help can be a good thing.

    I still am going.

    I have the cheapo harbor freight pump, and it does okay for my 245/75/16. I just can't ask it to do more than airing up more than my 4 tires from 20 to 40 psi without a cool down break.

    Also, good point on the female toilets. I plan on having a female copilot.

    It's a state forest.... Hence there are trees. :D
    I always keep a roll of tp in my truck for such occasions.

    my truck told me it needs a day off from my @ss and vice verse so I won't be attending either of the bundlef*ck events Sunday. I gotta get the bike out and ready for the superbowl.
    y'all have fun.

    Hey guys, I hope it's okay if I post my question here. I'm installing a lift on my 2nd Gen at home (5100's, OME coils and AALs) and am looking for a reputable alignment shop in the Kitsap area.

    When I lifted my XJ (w/ adjustable control arms), I took it in to Goodyear in Silverdale and those guys had no clue (they were happy to take my money though). I had to bring it back home and re-align it myself in the garage (levels, angle finders, etc.). I got it within spec but I was pissed!

    I don't want to go through that again. Is Firestone any better? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Firestone can be hit or miss, but the lifetime alignments sure are useful!

    I suppose I could. Hadn't really considered it. I'll give Heartland Toyota a call and see how much that'll run.

    This. Lifetime alignment for something like $180. I've had it on my Honda for 14 years now...haven't paid for a single alignment after that.

    I have a lifetime one with Firestone. You just need to find one that is somewhat competent. It's lifetime, so you can go back after every off road trip, every lift adjustment, etc. For the price of 2 alignments at a dealer you can get a lifetime one... Just my 2 cents

    I go to the Silverdale one with no issues. I also have the lifetime. After the lift, they were surprise that the alignment was good.
