    Ok - yeah, agree tying in cage, building seat cradle and adding additional cross bracing would be far easier - so lets say 93%....Still going to be a long list of maintenance items, strip down and go through drivetrain/clutch assembly, taking my 6 pin Aisin upgrade to the next level with 7/16 bolts, adding easier to remove mounts for my tranny cross member and belly pan, etc. etc. Lot of other reliability and safety issues I'd like to plan for - so truck survives two weeks of my driving "style".

    As to once in a lifetime, shhhhh - that's like when I nodded my head that this will be my last new Duramax.

    Logistics - yeah, we'll need to talk more on transpo - this 40 is like a baby to me, had her for something like 22 years, and don't let her out of my sight or stay overnight with strangers. I'm just trying to listen to your "you need the full 14 days!, 10 isn't enough!, just scratches the surface!, yada yada yada....." Hope it'll be several of us from Florida but flying has to make up the time difference. Worst case I will drive out (especially if that's the route Dennis and Steve go).

    Is anyone still going and planning to stay at Grandpa's Garage? I need to call and cancel my "reservation" if not.

    Why is this 2017 thread still alive. This trip is a dead stick. Starting a Moab 2018 trip. Let's get some new intel going.

    Ben, a few various people, although most not even from the original group, are still supposedly going.
