I've just done a modification to the steering knuckles on my FJ Crusier and I need to do some product testing.

I'm going up the Crown King backroad tomorrow morning. Please come!

I need backup.

If my welds kill the knuckle, I'll need a ride home.

My kids are coming. They'll need rides too... in child seats.

My neighbor's kids are coming. They'll need rides.

Very Happy


Who's with me?

There's a beer at the saloon for anyone willing to come along and keep an eye on the trail for falling parts behind my FJC.

I would have joined you tomorrow but I committed to run Monatana Mountain with cyrus16 and wife. They would have joined us to Crown King , But Kim needs to be back in Tempe by 3 pm. It seems we would be cutting it close for that. I will look forward to the trail report. Someone should bring a magnet to follow Doc through Laughing
thanks
Don

Fully.

There is some close brush / desert pinstriping to deal with at the lower end of the trail. There is some mild rock crawling to do along the way, where some of it is optional anyhow.

A stock SUV makes it through.

A mildly modified SUV can be driven through in style.

I'd like to come just to inspect your rig Doc, but I'm not sure my boy is up to it yet (8 months old), and I pawned him off to my mom on Friday for the ritualistic Gillette run.

How old were your kids when you took them on something like Crown King for the first time?

I'm in as long as I can get back between 5:30-6pm. I have a b-day dinner to attend at 7pm down in Tempe.


And of course I still have yet to clear it with the hubbster who is at a movie right now, but I will twist/break his arm until he says yes.

As for an empty car seat...that's up in the air. I may have to bring Dani, and if so, it'll be filled. Otherwise...does it need to be front or rear facing? Very Happy

If I have to drive home on 3 wheels, I'll just put the kids' car seats out on the rock rail on the opposite side, like the crew on a sailboat trying to resist heeling over.

It'll be fine. My welds rarely break.

My buddy Ryan might join us in his Jeep. You would *not* want to put kids in it though.

I wasn't referring to your welds Doc. I suppose inspect was the wrong word. How about ogle your rig?

I'm still curious to know how old your kids were when you took them on such a journey for the first time.

I think they were 2.5 and 1.5 and they both slept... heads bobbing away...
