A million percent serious here.

We need to get you on the Con Rick, it's why you built your rig!

I'll vote for mid to late August after the jamboree comes through.

I'll be off fridays through Sundays starting in August for a new assignment. I'd love to go but probably can't take time off. Don't plan around me though.

if You guys can hit sometime near the weekend of the 19th, I might be able to come out and play too. Of course date depends on Rick, but I'll be watching to see.

Wow I have my own thread?! You guys must really love me. Let's do this!


The last weekend of August (24-26) works best for me right now but the 18-20 could work as well.

Man I gotta start working on my rig!

You gotta get that thing on the Con, so yeah, you have your own thread!

Can we agree on a weekend? I think I'm indifferent.

Whats the truck need?

I'm indifferent too. If either of those weekends doesn't work for someone please post up and we can choose the other one!

My truck needs:

Hydro steer (have it, steering box is plumbed, just need to mock up and weld in)

Troubleshooting why it sometimes won't start when hot (starter heat soak, alternator, battery, cables) it only did it once during the snow trip and it was running warm-ish the whole time so I think heat has something to do with it. Starter engages but there isn't enough power to crank the motor.)

More fender clearancing

Build a freakin front bumper!

Fix tire carrier

I'd like to get a tweecer or somehow fix my high idle issue. That's optional, it runs fine otherwise.

Get a good tool list and acquire spare parts, learn to pack without bringing the kitchen sink.

Great list. Buy an ARB fridge so help with packing.

I don't understand why people fixate on ARB, who only has one model that they outsource to make. Why not to buy from a company like Engle who has made fridges longer?

stop hijacking threads!

j/k - I have done some decent amount of research and my findings are pretty clear. The ARB hands down is the most popular mostly because its well known and has excellent customer support. It's also sold at 4wheelparts where jeepers have accounts (you should look into applying for an account their, makes catalog purchasing so much quicker).

There are a couple of bad ass fridges out there that compete with the ARB. My favorite being the snowmaster traveller https://aventuron.com/products/snomaste ... v0QAvD_BwE

Problem is i'm not going to drop over a grand to find out what looks good on paper doesnt work like I hope. I can ask 10 people right now how they like their ARB's and they all give them a giant thumbs up.

Not to continue the Hijack, but I was just looking at fridges today, thinking that I want to try and get 2 to 3 trips in this year. Found a couple used ones out there, which takes a little bit of the $pain$ away.
Hijack mode off
If you guys go the 18th I would be more than likely be in (depending on time off from work) The 26th is my wife's B-Day so that is definitely out for me.
