I'm heading back over to the Seattle area February 16th and was just curious if any of you would like to meet up again.

If you would like to meet up again just throw out what days, times and places work best for you. I'll be in town til the 19th and really don't have any set plans for any of the days so i'll be free whenever.

Dang it Craig, picking a weekend Ill be even farther east than Spokane! Its ok, Michael and I will have our own mini-meet with one of his other buddies with a TB. :raspberry:

Too bad Jeff wont have a lifted truck by then...unless he wants to do it on Feb. 10... :biggrin:


(BTW, anyone in the NW want to buy 3 factory SS wheels/tires with ~10k on them? Im trying to sell my remaining 3, the 4th bit a curb pretty badly. Im sure I could figure out a way to get them to this meet if anyone's interested.)

Dibs! What are you looking at for price, and what's the condition of the three remaining and how bad is the fourth?

If it's in sound shape (not leaking air and not out of round) I wouldn't mind it as a spare.

Sweet. We have just under a month so that should give us plenty of time to figure out this meet.

Looking forward to meet up again will all of you and BS for a bit.

I'm in if it's not too far from Arlington and starts fairly early. Still have to get back to the Casino to help those folks dump their IRS refunds. :biggrin:

4th is going to insurance as part of a claim so its not in the picture Im afraid. Wont even hold air, bashed it into a curb pretty badly. Popped the tire and 2 big chucks out of the bead. Ill post pics once I get all the insurance stuff straightened out.

I can take pics of the 3 good ones tomorrow probably and email them to you. I believe there are a scratch or 2 on some of them, they've spent more time in storage than actually on my truck haha!

For price, usually complete sets with good tires and TPMS go for betweeen $700-1000 with decent tires, $1000 is only for the absolutely perfect ones and mine have been used a little. Id probably want $800 for a set of 4, so $600 for 3. Dont know if you think thats reasonable or not, but I see sets (4 rims) with bald tires that cant be driven going for $600 that much on TBSSOwners.

Would be nice, but sadly not possible :frown:

Just thought Id throw it out there, lets plan on the 24th then! Patrick offered to help as well, plus he has air tools so we might be heading to his place to do the install.

I'm up for the meet. I'll have to see if the GF will have time to do it or if she'll be working. As for the Air tools I can always bring them to wherever you guys want to do the install. Air Compressor is portable. just don't know what tools I'll need to bring.

Im definitely up for a meet, wish I could have made the last one it looks awesome. I did some new mods this weekend I gotta show off :smile:

I'm hoping to have the exhaust done by the middle-end of February too, depends on funds :smile:

Ok that works for me. I have to head back to Spokane that day though so it would have to be early in the morning like around 9 or 10.

Nice, I spent the weekend working on garage doors and garage door openers. Not nearly as fun as modding the trucks, but a necessary chore for free rent and food!

Dont have it done at a shop unless you're ok with drone and it being LOUD. Seriously, I went that route at first on my 02 and it was unbearably loud with a 3" catback with a 5x8x22 Magnaflow. Craig likes his Flowmaster 40 series, but its loud as heck on the highway. If you can swing it, Magnaflow or Borla catbacks. They're expensive, but they dont drone (1800-2000 my Magnaflow does but all aftermarket exhausts do on the TrailBlazers [even my SS]) and are bearable for long roadtrips.

Or go for a loud exhaust and not worry about it, your call :rotfl:

FlyingFischer what setup do you have? I always blare the music so I don't think the drone would bother me too much. Cant be worse then my exs evo that was straighpiped. I couldnt hear him talking to me from the passengers seat hahaha

So i'm still down for the meet. No big deal where it is for me. I'm going to be staying in bellevue this time though so any further south would be more prefered.

I won't be able to make this one, I most likely have a horse show on the 18th now down in Tacoma; next time! If the show gets changed or if the meet is Sunday I will be there though... wish I could since its so close in Bellevue!

I can move to the 19th, but two things factor-in.

1st, we'll have to find another place, xxx root beer has an event going on,
The 6th Annual XXX Drive-In Swedish Car Cruise-In - Sunday February 19th For Volvo and Saab cars. 10am to 3pm.

2nd, I'm on call the next two Sunday's at work, so I would have to fizzle out if they need me, I would know by the 16th or 17th.

But for now I can plan on a meet the 19th, we just need a new place I think.

So far the only chiming in for attendance are Flyingfischer, you, and I. :frown:

Eric I believe was out of town that weekend, Answer69 was unable, haven't heard from shinnyfeet on this one, for asautt I think it was too far for him to get back to work in time?

Anyone know "Jon A", saw him listed as being in Everett, WA on OffroadTB.

Considering that mine is no where near set up for proper fun in the mud, I'm gonna say "bring it"

bring it? meaning I have to get it muddy by myself and bring it? orrrr that you are willing to tag along? :yes: Where we would go is in duvall just minutes from where I live. I have been up there a million times. The main trails are fine for stock rigs, as long as you dont have running boards; you might bottom out if you have those.

Just an idea to hit some trails! :tongue: Maybe next time (March meet???) since jbones will be lifted by then as well. Ill just go up and get it all muddy and bring it to show everyone the kinda fun I have up there hahaha

If we could that would be great! I would love to make this one since I missed the last.

And we could have a location picked out between Bellevue and Lake Stevens, but if the weather is nice maybe hit up the Duvall Trails??? Only worth it if it is niceish out; the view at the end is really purdy

I might be up in that area again sometime around then. Sundays are tough for me but I might be able to make something work if we started our day a little later than 10.

I have all the pieces for my front end sitting in the garage too... I guess I should put that together huh? Been having too much fun wheeling the Yota lately.

Fishsticks, yes that would probably be a good idea... don't let her sit there naked to long now that is just rude!

How about this; we meet up somewhere closeish to Duvall, like Mill Creek/Woodinville/Bothell area (lots of food in my Woodinville hometown!) We can all meet up and grab coffee and/or food and what not. For those of you that want to maybe try and hit the trails, we can caravan out to there? It is about 15-20 minutes East from Woodinville; 10 miles.

Just throwing out ideas :smile:

Pick a place in Woodinville, it's only minutes north of the orginal location, and on the way if you do decide to take some folks OR.

Yep Im out on this one sorry folks, heading back to Spokane next Wednesday (feels like there's a tractor beam pulling me back there I swear, havent spent more than 2 weeks away since graduation in Dec. :bonk:) then onto Montana on Friday for the long weekend.

Not sure if Ill have the 02 TB back in Seattle for a March meet, April is more likely. Then Id be down to go wheelin' a bit, why the heck not? :biggrin:



BTW, just dropped the SS off at the body shop today to get the dent in the rear drivers quarter panel fixed and get a new rear bumper. Not sure if the rear valance will get replaced too, looks like there are some clips broken so who knows. Just going to not fix the rim/tire/taillight and swap out the taillights for the set I got from Tavis (from TBSSOwners, was at the last meet with the blown LS3 TBSS), hopefully everything works out so I end up with some black Factory Rep 22s for summer! :cool:

(P.S. Craig, you might want to hold of spraying your rear bumper for now...might have an SS one coming your way :lipsrsealed:)
