Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

Hwy 191 is closed due to flooding between Monticello and Moab. Spending the night in Monticello. Got one of the last rooms in town. Hopefully the road will be open in the morning!

Yeah, I see that there is rain in the forecast for Tuesday, hope it's not a wash (ha ha).
It's pouring right now in Monticello (50 miles south of Moab).

Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

We're all packed and the Lj's loaded on the trailer. We're leaving straight from work friday evening, and hope to be pulling into Moab saturday afternoon or early evening.

Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

Hey Tom, how about we plan on doing "fins and things" on Monday. That's a nice, easy trail to get us started and don't take all day. Then we kin get together Mon nite and plan further. Huh? Hadn't really thought about Fins and Things, since we did that trail during the LJ meet. You have to pay an e...

Looking through the postings here, both lj20Colorado and nickademusss were thinking about going too. Lj20Colorado is just up the road in Grand Junction, but I haven't seen a confirmation either way for him. Nickademusss is from the Salt Lake area, not far away either, but according to his profile, h...

Has anyone gone through this before and found a good match, or a good DIY hack? Our local Tractor Supply Co. store carries rubber matting in various thicknesses, and I was able to cut my own from them. They don't have the cloth reinforcement, but they are designed to put on the floors of stock trai...

Re: LED replacement taillights

Well, I think you can get the three-screw lenses from Steve C, but you can't get the actual light holder/housings anymore. That was the major reason with going with the solution I did. I did a different fix for the front turn signal/park lamps. I used the available stock lenses, but replaced the bul...

The emissions sticker is for "U.S. EPA" regulations, that would explain the vapor canister. I didn't know '81 Lj80s were US emissions legal?

That's a carb off an Brazilian made VW bug. My LJ10/20 (LJ20 engine) had a similar Solex carb on it when I bought it. Almost a bolt on. I swapped it out for an original Hitachi carb.

'bout 1700 miles to get to that point and that was, by far, the most desolate highway I've ever been on.

Re: Date, Location

We were wondering about accommodations in Silver City. We didn't know that the Hotel was now open in the summer time, and nothing else was coming up in our searches.
Nancy says that the hotel is probably haunted because it is so old, and isn't sure she wants to stay there :ohno:
