    I used to own one. Had a good time. That's where my name came from :). She was fun. Going to get another. Just one I can chop up and cage.

    Hey Brian, I wish my 88 was a SAS! I'm getting to the point where I'm really pushing the IFS to its limits but, you know, it's a toyota, it refuses to give in! (knock on wood!) Here's a couple shots from Dishpan. Notice us at the bottom. It's steep. The Waterfall is a biatch! image.jpgimage.jpg

    I want to run that so bad with my 01. I really think I would have no issue at all but want to run it to see. That rig has so much travel in the front end so you can sun some really crazy lines that most of the time you can't in most rigs.

    I have no doubt your rig would crawl right up no problemo! Andy's rig too. That black 87 is an inspiration for me. Both u guys need to come out west and run Dishpan Springs, Holcomb Creek, and especially John Bull(double black diamond)! Then we can hit Calico and Johnson Valley(KOH).

    I would love that. West coast wheeling looks like a lot of fun! I wish it wasn't so far

    I want John Bull for sure. You have to be careful because you will strait fall off rocks and body damage will ensure for cretin.

    All u gotta do Andy is rent a motorhome, hitch up the trailer, and ROADTRIP!!! Hit Moab on the way! Ain't no wheeling tougher than the west son! U could swing up north and run the Rubicon. Then head east to the Rockies! Damn I'm gettin myself all riled up

    :laugh: The motor home isn't a bad idea, haven't thought of that. I was considering renting a full size diesel to pull my junk to Moab next year, if I can get the money saved up.

    SAS guys-

    Any tips to get a better ride out of my rig? I have fresh shocks all the way around and a fresh rebuild on the ORI's. It is much better but still not there yet.

    Well apparently when the main power cable arks across the battery holder it's a problem. I was loosing all power every time I hit a bump. With a little digging I found it pretty fast. A trip to the local auto parts store to get some 6 gauge wire and a few other things. With in 15 minutes all issues were solved. Glad this was an easy fix this time.

    Next project. Pull heads off the other Rig. Ugh!!!!
