• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Gonna hit the con on Wednesday morning (6/22). The plan is to make our way to buck and spend a couple days there. Head out on Saturday morning. I got a group of 3 rigs going with me. Any fellow scouters care to join up, pm me or call. Thx

Hey Joe,
was that you I met at ellis with frank? I was with the Bronco group. Nice Scout and hope you faired well! We ended up splitting the factory seam on the 9" rear end all the way across by the time we made it all the way out.:yikes: good thing we ventured out when we did...

Yes that was me. The trip was pretty good. I had some starting issues that held us up. I went in with frank and randy of norcal Bronco's group. Randy broke a driveshaft. I think the Scout is a beast for running the con with no front locker and 33" tires.:yesnod: oh and I also messed up my rag joint in my steering. I could still steer but it wasnt pretty. Also met fellow board member "Craig" on my way out. Way cool dude. Ill post pics probably tonight.


Ok, I thought I found it once, but where is the annual rubicon run for sept listed. Is there a date set? I can't find it. Please link it to this if someone reads this, thanks. Frank
