John;

I wish I could go, but that is the weekend before I go in for my surgery and I still have a ton of stuff I have to do before then. I will be thinking of you though.

I think I will try to get something together for next spring on an early weekend so we can all try to get together.

Enjoy the dunes guy.

Jim

Is the DNR cracking down on the noise level? I know you have to have spark arrester mufflers on, but I heard they were doing the decible tests now too.I volunarily had my truck checked up there and it was a little too loud with my 3" exhaust and flowmaster mufflers,If they are cracking down then I need to build a dunes truck.

If DNR gives me trouble I will put a little steel wool in the tail pipe tips to quiet it down, but I think it will be ok.

I used to work at Duneland right by the dunes, and from what I remember, you have to have some kind of baffled muffler, and you have to be below (I think, emphasis on think) 95 decibals.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 14-Oct-02 AT 09:49 AM (EST)]My 1979 p.o.ed the Ch*vy guys at the dunes. My truck would just climb those hills shooting 4 rooster trails all the way up and over the top. The che*ys all had to get running starts, except one guy that had paddle tires. I did do some miner damage when I got all 4 tires about 6 feet off the ground . I broke a suspension bump stop and bent a rear ladder bar, but I am not going to cry about bolt on accessories. That's all part off the fun.

John,
If you can remember there was a grey 89 ford with an 8" lift and a black ch*vy with a 6" lift. what did you think about the ford(I was with those guys). By the way we will be up there the week of memorial day if you are interested in going. I think I saw one of your budies taking pics I was wondering if you could post any of them we didn't take very good ones.
thank you
