Hello from sunny Tucson, AZ!

Hello all,
I found out a few weeks ago that my company is probably moving me to the DFW area early next year and thought I'd do some looking into the local crawling scene. I've been into the crawling thing for a few years now out here in AZ...

My junk... it began life as an 85 toy pickup that I bought specifically to wheel and has been though all the standard iterations... initally open diff'd on 4" and 33's, then stretched the wheel base, doubled the cases, threw a spool in the rear and went to 37's. Pulled the bed for a custom flatbed, also added a York for OBA duties. Upgraded the front with Longs and a Aussie locker, finally got some descent springs from TG (5") and went to 39.5" Pitbull Rockers. Then, a few weeks ago, rolled it 3 times... Here's a link to the run... not sure if you can get to it without registering, hope so... (http://www.wheelingarizona.com/forum...hp?f=6&t=14561) so this morning i'm going to pick up a truggy carcass with a 1-link rear and some air shocks.

Looking forward to meeting and wheeling with you guys!

Chad

Ok, let's try this...

The first two are just before the roll... and the last is obviously just after the yard sale.

Thanks for posting up the pics! It looks alot worse that it really was... I had a bruise on my melon and a scratch on my left elbow, must have hit something on one of the rolls, but my passenger didn't have a scratch on him. I could have been much worse for sure, but I drove it out and after some liberal sledge work the next morning we went and ran another mild trail before heading home.

Here's a video from that run that one of the guys put together... btw, this is a memorial run we do each year, one of our memebers, Josh Parish, passed away about two years ago from stomach cancer. The tan FJ40 was his that a bunch of us did work on while he was sick so we take it out every year to honor and remember him. Normally we try and get his kids to come with us, but they weren't available this year.

Enjoy!

...and before anyone says... yeah, I need some rear shocks!
