I went to the bank, the hardware store, gas station (got another "nice truck!" from some random guy), and the dump. Sorry, no pics.

I didn't go anywhere in it today. Been working on the dual ARB's install.
So, past pics of where I took "Patch", the '84 Xcab:
Old Coast Road, Big Sur-

Phillips Cyn, Calico-


50-odd miles SW of Jackpot, NV-


Almost Murphy's Hot Springs, NV-


That oughta help jump-start this thread.

Is that the one you broke the knuckle on?
Knuckles were fine....the diff itself snapped two studs and stripped the nuts off the balance, tweaking the mounting surface on the housing badly. See the pics in Hardcore ;)

Wildernest?

Took mine on it's first long distance run since purchase. Coastal Desert to Bullhead City and back. Did fine other than a whistle at road speed. No pics. Did go for a drive on Sat over "Christmas Tree Pass". Very interesting area just north of the road btwn Laughlin and US 95.

Wildernest?
Yes. The 30 year old Brahama shell finally cracked apart. I found a Wildernest on craigslist and the rest is history.

In reality- it was probabally a terrible idea, as I bought a four wheel camper for my other truck. I've used the wildernest once. Now I have 2 trucks, with the two of the best campers ever made - but no functional pickup truck.
