#1 you don't need that. Solid bday gift though
#2 is this like the 4th radiator
#3 good idea
#4 what? Poor blue thunder
#5 are you serious? Swap side for side? It's always leaned. So does Mine.
#6 leaking?

1. Great heads up play by letting me know about booster
2. 3rd, 1st was cheapo to get by, 2nd was champion, leaks in 3 different spots... 
3.ty
4. Yes you saw, the left bed fender
5. Got roudy, think i bent rr spring, truck has pimp lean to the right
6. My brass line leaked before from my improper routing, i soldered it before to temporarily fix it, but compressor runs every 10 seconds, ultimately i need to diagnose the leak 1st.  But i think i was pushing out grease passed seals in to knuckles do to positive pressure in housing.  I just want to go in and replace anything suspect...

Last minute add of Asa to the list. Got a call from Travis tonight. Asked if I would bring Asa along in his place as a favor. He's new to the sport and just recently bought a crawler. This will be his second time out. Very capable rig painted in Toyota racing color.
That makes 10 trucks and a side by side
The list is now locked and full
I anticipate as always that I will start to receive a few "I can't make it" calls tomorrow
But I truly hope everyone makes it.

I would guess Matt with the TJ that I put the 4.7L stoker motor in.
He has a lift, winch, and pitbull tires but no lockers yet. He's investing as He can. only been at it a year+ now.
He's been to walker valley in the snow, Elbe 1/2 day and once with Travis I think.
It does very well without lockers. He Just needs a spotter and some direction. I plan to put him in the middle of the pack.

Built or bought?
He's smarter than most of us. He had a stock truck that He was going to build. Then He added up how much it was going to cost to build it the way He wanted it. Travis talked Him into buying this one instead.

Had a good time, glad I was able to make it out and meet a real nice group of people. No breakage or roll over for me on the wheeler but the air dog pump on the tow rig :pokinit: the bed on the way out. Got to the napa in town there minutes before closing to get a random one with the same specs to splice in line.
