Re: Silver Lake Dunes

Well.. It was a fun day even considering the weather.It took me 10 min to get buried to the frame ( got pulled out by a Ford) talk about eating crow..lol But the rest of the day was a blast.
Test hill was too easy in my thoughts, the problem was the getting down (thus getting stuck backing up)the down side was a cliff and only the the certifiable even thought of it and I had my wife and kids in there, so no way in
%$#@.
Now for the interesting part (the drag racing) and yes we got pic)7 trucks line up and away we go my stock 2.8 coming in 2nd and only getting beat by a full size chevy (don't feel to bad)yes I was winding her out JUST A LITTLE..lol good thing I don't have a tach I probably woul;d have back out of it, no the wife and kids watched and did this 4 more times to make sure it was'nt a fluke.
And for the dunes itself that little Blazer went wherever i wanted it to. My truck and even I was impressed.
Heres a big question I need some real good off-road shocks.I was catching some air and landing hard enough that my wife asked "whats this" my computer feel out from under the dash..hahahahaha thats a hard landing..lol Anyone with any ideas. Thanks .. hope to see ya up there

Re: Silver Lake Dunes

Do you live near the dunes? A few friends and I were talking about heading up there next month or so... And then there is the trip in July that we always go there for, This year there are going to be a ton of people there with our group (already have 4 camp sites reserved) even a couple from the board that I know of already. If you live near there you should shoot up for those trips. Talk to oyu later

Re: Silver Lake Dunes

as an afterthought... i found bolting the tow hooks to the frame may not be such a great idea , getting pulled out the hook held up great..BUT the frame metal tore.. wierd but them $7.00 hooks held up there end of the bargin..
