    Heya, just got here - love to have someone to go run around with. Heard the Sub conversations - you the bubblehead or your buddy? (Ex one here...you may be too young, but to verify - Rat Sh*t, Bat Sh*t, Dirty Rotten ****) :)

    I was on the San Francisco for four years. Old, broken, and waiting to die (it tried to anyway), and now it's about to convert to a Moored Training Ship. Nothing accelerates your life like standing SRO. What's the saying come from? I was thinking of doing the next desert run in a few weeks. Do you have any preference for trails? Pictures of your truck?

    Hey, I did my time on the Dolphin and 637 class boats (Puffer and Pogy)...little before your time I guess ;) Every boat/ship (some things with a Canadian FF, rode the Midway, did a quick tour on HMS Splendid, a workup on the Coronado, etc) is now a reef or a museum. Sheesh.

    No preferences on trails for me, I have not had a chance to beat around this area (always going on longer trips, and when a day drive comes up...mountains are cooler ;)). Different bumpers now, but this is mine:

    And the saying is a leftover from DBF non-PC days.

    I was not there when it hit the mountain, thankfully. I got there shortly after it left the yards in Bremerton. It really is amazing that someone thought is was cheaper to try and fix the San Fran instead of refueling the Honolulu. When I showed up to the 711 in 2010 the Navy didn't seem to be PC yet. It's amazing how things can change in a few short years. Here are some shots of my truck:

    Thank you. It'll be a few weeks before I hit the desert or mountains again. Do you know anyone else who would be interested in going through some trails? What do you think of night runs? Perhaps more pictures and post will attract more people to this thread and future trail runs? Here are some shots of the ARB differential installation for the 10.5" rear axle:

    I am now...Officially Jealous! Did you install yourself? This sounds weird, but some of the best money I've spent was on the Diamondback cover - Despite some design decisions I don't agree with (and am changing) it's awesome. Truly secure storage, great sleeping platform, can still carry 1500 Lbs on top, and great seating for concerts, drive in's or...just having lunch :)

    I'd do a night run, north of the 8 anyway ;). Know a guy or two that might be up for some runs.

    It's been a while since I've posted here. Work got stupid, I got distracted, and then I got PRK. Anyone interested in heading to Big Bear in the next couple of weeks?

    Someone has to be interested in taking their truck offroad and showing the Tacoma owners what real power looks like.
