    Thanks to the generosity of some white colored vehicle it appears I’ll be shopping for a bumper and some headlights for this thing. They got the tire too which seems to have tweaked the Tierod. Not too worried about the fender as I’m gonna end up putting a big hole in it for a snorkel anyway.

    Oh well!

    I hope you called the police and got them to check video at the store for a plate number. Sorry enough to leave a note but no contact info?? That's just bullshit right there.

    Was supposedly in a blind spot and couldn’t see clearly enough. I’d have preferred no note over a “sorry”. I guess there was a witness and they wanted the illusion of leaving info. Oh well.

    Replaced the bent stuff yesterday and popped the bumper out so it looks a little better in the meantime.

    how about somesuch meeting be announced here - not all of us are on FaceBook :doh:

    these days, we don't have the 80 to bring anymore here in LA, it went to our Arizona house, but the story of how how we acquired the SWAMPGX is worth it :D

    Damn glad to hear from you! Had no idea you guys were still around. Unfortunately most of our members have moved on to FB and not many are on MUD any longer. Although, it looks like Eric is trying to help it make a come back. :D Yes, we are supposed to have a meeting at the Hodges' house in the Denham area on 1/19 but right now we only have 5 people who have said they are coming. We may have to reschedule. I will try to get on MUD more often and keep things updated here. If we go with the meeting as scheduled I'll post the address here.

    But it looks like we will have the majority of our meetings at the Southern Style Offroad shop in BR. Kevin has offered us some space to be able to have wrenching sessions at the time of our meetings. I'll post dates here when we have them.
