My BRAT has fresh transmission/gear oil, and a brand new radiator installed.
While filling with new gear oil, I found my pitch rod stopper metal bracket is broke, probably why it pops out of reverse when i try to reverse with some speed.
- it is still caked with mud and gravel all over the bottom from the incident at Ledges, i could hardly locate the drain plug for the gear oil/transmission.
At least i didnt see any metal chunks or even any metal flakes in the old oil, and the magnet on the plug looked GOOD.

My only fear is ill have half the vehicle lifted and not be able to go. I might just wait to lift it after this event so i can go. McBrat still hasnt confirmed if hes going yet or not. Hes on a week to week basis. Even if your brat wasnt ready you can still take your truck.:grin:

I am interested, but where exactly is this rally held?
I may not be able to have my 'roos in condition for that kind of treatment yet.:(
They definately need some work zzz done on them. some brake work, some metal work, etc...if time, a moderate, but not outrageous lift.
maybe next year.
I would like to attend, but my schedule is variable as well and I wont know
what nexts month schedule is until late this week. If im free, thats great.:),
if not, oh well, some other time...

it will be meet in Des Moines at the Waveland Cafe for their famous breakfast (thats what we did last year) so I assume the same, then we head south out of DM to the level B roads, then meet for lunch at a small town diner, mingle, then back to DM at a Restauraunt/Bar/Grillfor awards, muddiest truck, and watch the pics and vids on a big screen at the Grill/bar.

No, wassnt that the story of 5000 RPM, 20 degree timing advanace, and with E85 blend?
Dennis said he would either ride along with someone, or try to get a relliable enough ride to go along, not the SVX he has.

From looking at pictures theyve taken when they checked out the route it is going to be narley. Not a good one neither, dont think ive ever seen a dodge ram sink like that. All the snow and rain has made it way soft and sloppy around here. 2 things are going to happen for sure. 1. You will get stuck and 2 you will get muddy.:banana:

yeah Rally Julia did that last year too. that is a Big Heavy long dodge, not very good except for pulling people out.


Fresh oil and filter in the BRAT today.
was going to change oil in the SVX since its due, but my WIX for Porsche seal filter is not going to work. Guess I am taking BRAT to work tomorrow and see if i can get a correct SVX filter.

Sure wish Mick could go. I think it will be much same route as last year. It may be dusty in places and muddy in others. Looking at the jeeps, the tires look fairly cleaned of mud, but the way the tires stick out and throw mud up on the hood and roof, its due to no mudflaps and tires that stick out the wheel wells. Last yea, it was the same, my Rescue wagon had hardly any mud on the body, whereas everyone else did. 70mph drive home with mud stuck in the wagon wheels, priceless. Steering wheel shakes like crazy with mud in the wheels.

Oh, Ben, maybe pam spray the wheels inside and out to keep mud from welding to it.
