we are gonna go up farmington canyon and then north past the radar arrays. we want to go play in the rockpiles by the last lake, does anyone know if there are any restrictions that have come up recently. :confused: we want to leave ogden at about 9 am and probably be in farmington by 10 ready to roll. i have a couple zuks and a couple cherkoees going, are there any others that wanna play in the rocks?

I'll go if I can get out of a family reunion, but I don't know what time I can make it up there. I've never been there so can you explain to me how to get to farmington canyon?

go to the farmington exit and head for the hills....it is kinda tricky, we would have to meet at a designated place like the bk in farmington next to the shopping center.

I can't go on Saturday I have to work. I go on Sunday when the wife & kids are at church. Let me know when you go again. And maybe the bronco will be done ( fat chance ) maybe.

Wayne, no I don't have your gears they got chucked, but let me know what ratio they were I may have another set if you need them.

i know how those XJ tie rods are. we peeled one off in slow motion like an orange!! it was hilarious to see it come off so slow. anyway we will keep you out of the tie rod killers. just come out and play!! you can make it as hard or as easy as you want!!

Andy, I have the ring gear, but I didn't get the pinion. There's a guy interested in buying them from me. 4.10 for Ford 8.8

Shut up. I hate sleepers.

"yeah, it's just a mall cruzer" he says. Whatever :rolleyes: Mall cruzer with the drivetrain of a tank.

I'm only a little bit jealous

Well my D44 is together. I hadn't thought about measuring my driveline, so I hit a little snag....next mod....tailshaft and new driveline...

lol sorry about the big size.....anyway we need to meet at the burger king in farmington canyon next to the shopping center. take highway 89 you cant miss it. the road is slightly tricky to find to get up the canyon so a map would be necessary if you are late...give me a call at 7910377 for directions customized for you!!:D :D

So, no definite trail with lots of big rocks? Some of the roads up there will definitly get your attention.

i didnt start down the side to go towards mountain green but there might be something down there. i wish it were more like the rubicon because we really need a trail like that around here!!
