Im down, haven't been out there in years. might need a couple cans of gas to take with me though.

I DO need to test out the 4wd and goodies i spent all weekend installing.. so count me in.

if you guys are just hitting up the lake no crazy trails i should be able to make it up there assuming my work doesnt keep messing with my schedule
Define crazy ;)

Couple of hill climbs, some off cantor stuff but easy overall. I would recommend working 4 wheel drive (no auto hubs). If you have that, you should be good. We can tug you over anything you cant get over with 4wd.

I can help only if you cap all of your emissions stuff lol... the egr and thermactor system involves way more time than im willing to invest. Ill have to shell out the 500 bucks next year to get the emissions provisions back on correctly.. sigh... one more good year of payson registration.. but ill be happy when its legit.

side note.. just got back from a short trail run off 156th & dynamite.. 4x4 is amazing! 4lo tries to slip out of gear when i first engage it, but got up some hairy stuff, enough to get it to stall out :goodfinge.... new carb settings and correct power valve, plus adding the thermostat that was previously missing = sipping gas! i must have picked up at least 5mpg, but feel a loss in WOT... reliable> gofasssssstt

:thumbup

Nice. Now you can help me get the 78 straight. I am struggling with the carb/vacuum/timing. Its killin me!!

I have a couple seats. You get to the gate and if you dont have your hubs in, you can ride with me. If you get those hubs in and you will be able to get there no problem.

Well, I am not going to say I havent seen a honda or two out there, but I wouldnt recommend it for Saguaro. I think you have to be willing to catch air to get in and out of there in a honda. Like I told AZR, if you need a seat, let me know. You can get your honda to the gate and we can go from there. Or get your friend to get tires and bring the bowtie on out... :toothless

I would like to get out there kind of early and do a full day. Last trip was kind of short with my mom. 115 degrees got to her pretty quick. lol...

Got a hold of Scott (dogonmut) he and I are fixing it tonight I will be down for this weekend I will probably have a Seat open. My wife is too pregnant to go (I also havent told her I am going yet) I need some time out in the sun near the lake for a bit some light wheeling would help get my mind off things. So what time you thinkin about heading out Shane?

Nice. Tell Scott to come on out! (Scott??) :toothless

Not exactly sure on time yet. Thinking of trying to be to the gate by 8 or 830. Its the holiday weekend so chances are space will be limited... would like to try and get there early enough to stand a chance.

Tell Brian to come on out to.

So after about 6 hours 2 pipe wrenches my Vise exploding and making a new tie rod I have steering again. Shane Brian is trying to finish his bumper up although he needs to take that stupid thing wheeling since it is more capable than all our rigs. I think the earlier the better I will be out till it is too hot for me. But I told Scott we will be out there. Should be good times.
