    Default What it cost...

    $495.27 in gas for the tow rig
    $65 in gas for the Jeep (paid cash so I think its about that.)
    Parts and other stuff for the jeep I am not counting. That's just part of wheeling
    $1437.28 4 days of redbull on the drive out and the drive home...

    That's not too terrible. If you went back, would you stay longer on the trail?

    How'd the truck do MPG?

    yeah itd be fun to do an extra night or 2 on it. Buck Island had enough fishing and big enough of a lake to camp at, and rubicon springs with the waterfall is great.

    That was the plan but my jeep had other ideas and we spent the extra day at napa...
    I wanted to get out early and wheel into rubicon springs the first night. Camp 2 night and then head out. I would do buck again as a day one stop. con would be great as a day 2 stop with the falls and swimming.

    3 days on the trail would be more than enough.

    8.1 mpg. for 1600 miles Was getting 6.4 doing the climb outside of Vegas. Needs deeper gears

    awesome, hopefully in a couple years

    Gears would be a bit pricey, but if you plan on keeping the truck it's probably worth the money

    Tahoe is at Pete's. It sounded like a bearing between the trans and transfer case. The guy at the desk made it sound like if anything was wrong they were rebuilding the whole thing. I'm hoping it's under $3.

    Your trailer did awesome. The ammo cans were a dam concern. But not as much of an issue as the lady asking if Bob was my dad. LOLOLOLOL

    I got 10.1 for the trip. Much better than I thought with your heavy duty trailer and a lot of spare parts.

    I'll text you to make plans to bring it back when I know a bit more about the Tahoe. Hopefully I can coordinate picking it up and coming to you since its almost halfway.

    That's pretty funny on the ammo cans, did they make you open them up ?

    Glad the trailer did good! no rush on bringing it back, whenever's good for you.
