Checking in from West Houston/Katy....

New on the Forum. Not new to Wheel'N.

For the last few years i thought Texas4x4 and Texas4wd where the same. Obviously I was wrong.

I spent 5 yrs in the Marine Corps working on F-18s. Now when I'm not earning $ I work on my Toyota's.

I ride my mountainbike at Terry Hershy Park through the AntHills. Last Thursday I got back to my truck and saw this sitting a few spots down. Who owns it? I've got some ?? about the SAS.

I have a job now so by then I should have the rear half tubed, my cage in it and new "bigger" wheels and tires. So you better bring your A game.

If you watch the videos I didn't go any faster then anyone else, I kept it slow & steady and chose my lines carefully.

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Taco will be going up for sale this weekend. I need a tow rig.

VMFA 112 in Ft. Worth, VMFA 321 in D.C. and back to 112 then got out. I'll bet we know some of the same people, Chuch Heck and Joey Perkins?

If you remember that was the first time I got behind the wheel all weekend long -- so no practice for me and I was hurt so i was taking it pretty slow too as to not mess me up anymore!

Anyways I hope to have our truck done by then too -- we will see!!

Glad you made it over here oh and will you tell Greg I said - have not heard from him in a while -- guess he is building something new -- again!! lol

I know you wern't 100% at Jambo. But you did a great job at keeping everything and everyone on task.

I haven't talked to Grag in a few weeks. The trucks should be in storage so he can focus on getting the house finished.
