Thanks! It's going to be more of a trail rig than a crawler but it should be a fun project and a super comfortable rig. I guess every build is a compromise.

It didnt get quite that cold over here this last winter but it hit -25 some nights. Made livin in the basement a nightmare hahahaha. But my 87 had the same idea about the cold as the your Turbo Runner, it started but it wasnt really happy about it.

No, I've been busy at work and keep forgetting. I'll try to call them when I get time, but if you call them before then let me know what they say.

Too funny! That means I have to run Carnage, and that's not going to happen! Aaron said you broke your windows pulling them out, you should of let me do the work for you!

I really can't give you crap, running Carnage in a full body 3rd Gen is bad ass and not easy!

Where is your sense of adventure and yes I never broke the windows out on the trail I broke them on accident in the garage.. Which seems to be a common theme because my windshield is completely jacked up and it all happened in the garage. I have learned that you should never set heavy objects on your hood and then open it and watch which way you hand will go when pulling on something a little slip and your hand goes into the windshield.

We could always take his keys during the Jambo (I know you won't be there but I'll make sure you get credit for the stunt) and winch his 3rd Gen down the exit of Carnage. He'd have to either drive the exit or drive the entire trail backwards

Winch it down the exit, whats the fun in that? Theres only one way to get down the exit! It will also take care of that "window" problem!

Sweet! You talked me into it, we can also hook up the trailer for a little extra challange!

On a serious note, if you have any questions about your engine feel free to send me a PM. I know my way around a 22R pretty good and I might be able to help you out.

Hahahaha, I was trying to be "nice" to your new rig, letting you do all the damage to it getting it out But if you want to drop the exit, I'll make sure I've got space on my card in my video camera this time, I promise
