Roll call for Parker!

So who's going? Team Pirate will be there, sporting the two black Jeepspeeds 1705 and 1715. Both rigs still have a lot of work to be done on them, and we're running out of time!

Both camo and I are sick in bed (thanks, Mike ) so we can't get any work done...

We went down to Parker this last weekend and went on the pre-fun-run. It was good times, although a little bouncy in Standage's Ford.

We're going to do the whole season in 7200. Just sent in the entry yesterday so we can still make qualifying. All we need now is the engine back from the builder, and to put the truck together. Josh at Desertlab took these pics yesterday. It's a flash slideshow, so you have to click on the upper right icon. (Thanks again, Josh, looks great)

Think we'll make it? We'll keep an eye open for you guys.

Lance, I'm in to go. Got the time off and approval from the boss at home. If you guys need some help getting it ready let me know.

Billy, your truck is looking clean man! Get that thing put together, see you at Parker.

I'll be there to check it out - I'm totally interested in building a Cherokee for JS1. I'll probably help my buddy Bryan Dodge (1788) with whatever he needs done on his - see you guys there

I'm curious to see the shock mounts, I am building mine right now, and still thinking about the best way to do it, running the T&Js uppers so I would like the shock bolt to mount front-back so as not to bind the shock mounts too much, let me know how it turns out, rig is looking pretty ready to me, here is my semi-final design on the 2wd beam, not making it to Parker as I will be here building, good luck to you all:
