At least part of the beater88 crew will be attending and taking up space at Site 8. Son Josh (itsnotajeep) will be coming down Thurs on a white '91 Trooper. Please extend a warm welcome to him. I, the ol' patriarch, will be arriving either late Thurs evening or mid Friday morning. The '88 Beater is dead again, so I am attempting to bring our '90 LS Trooper back to life. It's been sitting for almost 3 years. Dang, time flies!

We look forward to seeing and fellowshipping with y'all again. Wishing safe travels to all!

Beater88 is our pretty capable (though NOT pretty) junkyard refugee with a hodgepodge of parts to make it go: a 2.6 with a 4ZD1 head, automatic trans, '87 10-bolt rear with an old Lock Right 3111, whatever tires we have lying around that hold air, and random salvage parts added as needed to keep it rolling. We're as happy as if we had good sense!

The engine break in isn't going as smoothly as I'd hoped, so the rig probably ain't gonna make the trip. Argh.

Good morning everyone !!! Got most everything done to my little rodeo that I had time for. In he fall it was pretty stock with 31" all terrains. It's come quite a ways since then. Anyways, glad to see everyone is arriving, sad to see some aren't coming. Nonetheless, I'll be packing up after I wire my new lights in and well be heading down this afternoon to setup our meager camp. Does anyone need anything ? Has Lorenzo found a driveshaft ? No Friday dinner ? Anyone interested in going out to eat ? I believe breakfast is set for Saturday so we were bringing some oj and the kcup for certain haha.

Yes, thank you to everyone that came out and let me join in on the fun. Had two great days of testing out "The Tank" and found some areas to attack prior to the next event.

My three days there flew by but it was awesome finally getting to meet a lot of you in person since I have been reading your threads and soaking in your knowledge on this thread since 2009! Really looking forward to the fall event. Maybe I'll have the Axiom together enough by then to bring that out for some solid testing!

I shot a vlog of the trip. Hope to have it up soon. I will post a link here when I have it edited and uploaded. Didn't get any out of the truck shots on the trails. Just from the new action cam mounted on the side of the truck. :(

Breakfast was great on Saturday, Marcus! Thanks! Good seeing everyone and Jerrys new monster truck. Fun on the range as always with the guys, and having it all to ourselves on Friday was a treat. Good turnout this trip and looking forward to the fall run when all the snakes are back in their holes.

There was a great turnout this year, and the number of first generation Troopers is the highest I recall seeing in the few years I've been attending. Thanks for sharing these pics! :)
