If you just need the rubber, PM me. They arent great but they'll do the job as emergency spare. No rim.

CA18-S13
08-21-2010, 10:51 PM
Looks like it may be a little muddy as there is a small amount or rain for tonight in that area. Nothing to get hot and bothered about :)

It wont be anything like when "Unknown303" and "ercchry" and I went earlier in the season and had quite a slippery day. haha

master hec0
08-21-2010, 10:56 PM

I'd doesn't bother me to much when we leave. I've going ot head there for 9 but I might go across the street to the A&W for a bit. I don't like Tim's coffee. I only have a pair of radios but usually there's a few people with extras.

Awd-Tsi
08-22-2010, 08:18 AM
I could use a radio too if anyone has am extra.. Can't find either of them

Fun trip! Thanks for all the help with the blazer everyone :)

master hec0
08-22-2010, 09:39 PM
wow you got back at 7:40? i just got back i only made a 15 min stop in cochrane before heading out. damn construction by the grey eagle casino slowed me down.

I would assume everybody else is either still at BP or on the highway.

Awd-Tsi
08-22-2010, 09:56 PM
Haha no I wrote that on my phone on the way back. Ya that construction was horrible. Let's do it again whenever

yeah we went to the "falls" not really any falls there.

Unknown303
08-22-2010, 10:45 PM
Went to the falls. I just got in now too. That was a long day. That convoy dragging out the Blazer took a while but a good trip overall. I have way to many pictures and video to go through.

CA18-S13
08-22-2010, 11:13 PM
Just got in about 15 min ago..... definitely a LONG day. haha

Look forward to some pics/vids whenever people find time to go through them. No rush :)

Kraziivan
08-22-2010, 11:26 PM
We did go to the falls. On the way back from the end of the trail a few of us on the drive back down stopped at them. Nice little 3 min walk in from the trucks.

Fun day guys, too bad about the rain at the end.....and the lazy blazer... alt dies... gets towed... comes back to life. haha just kidding.

Have to do a trip to the lake some time... or the same but I'll bring a camera instead of leaving it 2 feet from the door.. ugh

[ We did go to the falls. ] If more people got out of their trucks.. sorry for that but it seemed like everyone just wanted to take right off.

Awd-Tsi
08-22-2010, 11:42 PM
Ya get some pics of the hill climbs and going through the river. I wanna see the one where it almost died

Have you flushed the fan out with water since the first time it got gummed up? It may have some silt built up in there or something.

yeah we flushed it a bit... but before it stopped working it was running pretty hard and constant.... i think it was due to all the mud on the rad.... and i think it just over heated and shut down... after a few passes through the river at ~30km/h it cleared up the rad pretty good and the fan worked again

Unknown303

Awd-Tsi
08-23-2010, 03:30 PM
I have a total of 19 minutes but YouTube only accepts 15 so I had to
shorten it... Got the full video on facebook if anyone wants to see it

Unknown303
08-23-2010, 03:49 PM
Shoot me a PM. although I don't have facebook you can send a public link or something can't you?

Awd-Tsi
08-23-2010, 04:20 PM
Yup, I can't do it from my phone right now but I'll send you one. Also compiling a 15 min YouTube video

Unknown303
08-24-2010, 02:12 AM
It finally finished uploading. Sorry for the lack of audio in areas. And I increased the speed for a lot of it so it would fit into Youtubes 15 minute limit.

View it on youtube for the 720p version though it's pretty shaky anyways.

I am guessing you cut through the deep section in the crossing and got water into your intake?

Yeah he came down from the side and pretty much went straight through the middle. Dunked it real nice.

Awd-Tsi
08-24-2010, 02:37 PM
It was towed because the alternator
wouldn't work and when we jumped it it would die in 30
seconds . Once it dried out the alternator
started working again and it fired right up :)

master hec0
08-24-2010, 06:06 PM
after this trip my brakes constantly squeal and are touching a little bit very annoying to drive so now i gotta brake out my Haynes manual and figure out whats going on. :banghead:

its funny because the other ford was saying that his brakes stopped squeaking after the trip.

have you taken the wand to them at the car wash yet? or is it the drums that are making noise? probably just a rock stuck somewhere regardless

master hec0
08-24-2010, 06:59 PM
already washed it but im going to take the wheels off and put it up on jacks and give it a good underbody spray. it just started later today so it could be rocks.

my neighbor really hates my old vehicles and muddy ones are worse.

she hates my 1983 Mercedes 300sd because its a loud diesel that smokes alot. and she hates my bronco because its "ugly"


too bad nobody has a directors account on youtube. then the videos could be longer

Damn if I had a front tow point I would have loved to come out. Do you guys thing a 1998 Jeep Cherokee with a 3" lift would have made it?
