    What is in a name. A rose by any other name is still a rose.

    Locations don't make the vehicle an expo rig, it's how it is used that defines it. Luckily the term expo is ildefined thus my treuck is expo when I put my tent in the back :D

    More exploring is always a good idea :cheers:

    Exactly!

    ;)

    The fancy new gears should help... Maybe??

    LOL! I came back to chaos. Family and friends all working to get the (mostly) remodeled kitchen all set up for the wedding this coming weekend. And my computer is still fubar'd. Soon though :spy:

    But yah man very awesome trip! Stoked that you were able to make it and there was no serious truck drama (besides damn broken rack!). Definitely would not have been the same with out ya :cheers:

    And now I can beat everyone in the pen at dominos :laugh:

    Seriously though!! Kind of really bummed I'm going to spend tomorrow in a cubicle instead of hitting a trail :pout:

    Not all of us will get to spend the day chilling at the beach beer drinking :poking:

    Sorry to hear that man. At least tre's are easy to replace.

    Montana huh? How was that? One of these days I'm going to make it out that way. Any pics to share?

    I won't be around a computer for another week but I managed to put everything on a dvd for you before I left. Probably drop it off at you house house tomorow when I make a beer/ice run back to town. Do what you want with them, cause I'm drinking beer on the beach for another 5 days....

    easy if you have the tools, which i do not so its going in to the dealership to get that, the LBJ's replaced and then aligned hopefully next week. lowrange has been backordered on tre.

    long story short, mom got stranded in Missoula so i went and took her home as she doesnt handle that shit very well.

    Man you can do the entire job with a jack stand, stock bottle jack, a pitman puller ($15-25 or rent for free from any parts store in America), a couple sockets, and a couple big crescent wrenches. But whatever works best for you! Bummer about the back order.

    Pics look good! And sub'd yer thread :cheers:
