    I just got some LED bulbs for my instrument cluster. Now I can see my guages and the high beam indicator in the dark!

    Now I just have 47 more bulbs to do something with. If any of your Relics take the type 57 bulb, I would be happy to share this weekend.

    So do this fit the instrument cluster, turn signal indicators, 4WD light on the dash and possibly the side clearance lights used on a 70 FJ40 if so have a use for some. If things go as planned will have it in the valley by the end of the week.:bounce:

    It fits my turn signals, but someone said that it was brighter than necessary for those. I would think the 4wd indicator would be the same. My'72 side marker lights were a bigger bulb. I only did the 2 illumination bulbs and the high beam indicator. My high beam light is so old and crusty that the led is barely visible behind it.

    FWIW, and I've no idea if this is still in effect or what was even what. I may just have a foggy memory perhaps, but when we last went, a year or so ago, Hewitt station was closed and we had to re route a bit.

    As for that cabin @murf , You can actually eye ball this cabin from the top of the switchbacks ( sharp eye ) but binoc's are even better. There is a cool mine that's very walking distance from the back of the cabin, thru the gully/wash. It's worth a look around for sure.

    Stopping at the top with awning or grabbing shade is the best spot, imo, for lunch and relaxing as it's the highest point with the best views. This is one of my favorite, bring out of towners, close to home loop.

    Safe trip fellas, really great scenery!

    Wish I had a vintage rig!

    What is the communication format? CB, HAM or walkie talkie?

    I can bring a couple of hand helds and a portable CB.

    Last time I checked my hand held was not working.:meh: I'll bring it along if I remember to grab it out of the FJ62. Got the slave cylinder for clutch replaced today. Test drove and working great. Just need to get a few more things done and get it back to the valley.

    I plan to join you all Looks like a great trip. Thanks for organizing it!

    I plan to run up with Splitshot.

    Could use a 60 mile marker and approx meet eta at the trailhead for those coming in from the South. I am planning on taking the 77 to the 177 (stopping at Maria's in Hayden for burritos to pack lunch) and heading west from Superior.

    The Burritos have got me convinced. Sorry we will miss Steve.
