    Manstache Moab May 4-7th: Official Farewell Trip

    So a little birdy told me a certain beloved community gnome and his family will be hitting the road back home and closing this chapter of their lives. As such there have been talks of doing a Moab trip this April to send them off. Lets use this thread to formulate a game plan including dates, proposed routes, and any vehicle maintenance needing to be done prior to the journey.

    Personally I have a laundry list of things to accomplish on the truck in just a few short months. However, I was given to green light to devote my tax return to Dorothy...a thought which I never thought I'd have...permission to spend money...

    Anyway lets get some thoughts going!


    My List

    - Replace Shocks
    - Pass Side. Caliper/pads
    - 4WD Vacuum (or 1 piece shaft)
    - Worn out/loose steering
    - Heater Core
    - Control Arm Bushings
    - Mystery Clunk (suspected steering or bushings)
    - Transmission Pump
    - Tires (suspected main cause of death wobble)
    '94 Ram 2500 :: 35's :: rear LSD :: 4.10's :: Crate 5.9 :: thats about it!

    I rearranged these in importance of getting done before Moab for you.....


    - Tires (suspected main cause of death wobble)
    - 4WD Vacuum (or 1 piece shaft)
    - Pass Side. Caliper/pads
    - Worn out/loose steering
    - Transmission Pump
    - Control Arm Bushings
    - Mystery Clunk (suspected steering or bushings)
    - Replace Shocks
    - Heater Core

    Gather your parts and bring that thing up here for a couple days. We'll knock it out.

    I have some other nonessential projects that require some fab if you'd be interested...

    I am really looking forward to this. General consensus is that April or May is the time frame. The Gnomes move in June. The other general thought is this is a four day trip not a week, to make it workable for the most people.

    Chris, if you can come up with another trailer you can drive my truck and I can pull my jeep with my work truck. Just a thought.

    EJS would be sweet but you know the trails will be packed. But there will be cool rides, sweet concepts and good shows at the main obstacles.

    I think it is wise to have a wrenching day for everybody
