toyota elocker, for the rear. See http://www.inchwormgear.com for more info on cost.

There is no elocker for zuk axles.

The weather forcast is the other reason - I have no desire to find out how my F150 and the zuk on the trailer works in ice/snow. Yea, the f150 is 4wd, and I hit some snow/ice/deep water in feb, and it wasn't fun at all.. I was worried to death about the trailer coming around and doing one of them tail wagging things..

Scwafish, and to anyone else:

my cell is 240-3738

i think it works out at moonrocks if i remember right. anyhow, if not, leave a message on the voice mail. you can call it anytime, i always have it.

------------------

the weather really does seem to be an issue. if it helps to anyone, Moonrocks is away from the mountains and does not get the "shadow" affect like even Reno does. the forcast could very well be bad in the mountains and the weather be "ok" out there. it's just a matter of getting over the pass.

to all

the weather report is a little better now for reno. calling just for clouds. it's just a matter if you get over the pass. anyway i'm still up for it.

talked to Shane (rudezuk) out at summit today durring the Tech Inspection. he is unsure if he can make it for some reason (don't remember)

if there are any questions whether to "just" come out and check the event out i would HIGHLY recommend it. EVERYONE is there with all the NEW BAD ASS stuff. rigs like you wouldn't believe. this sport is WAY HIGH TECH THIS YEAR. big names and big sponsors. there are so many rigs i don't know how they are going to let them all run. many of these rigs are "first time out" ones. not a scratch on them. Spidertrax has a bithin' new rear/mid engine buggy. only 2120 pounds. they actually have to add 80lbs to meet the minimum 2200lb mark. a few others i can remember are:

Avalanche
Shaffer
Badlands
Waker Evans (the new independent)
Currie
and on, and on.....

Re: to all

I may still be coming out with just the kids and the D/D to at least watch the event. I will leave it up to the Friday night weather report to decide if I will bring the rig or not.
