    Depending on the speed of the runs (and that would likely depend on who all is going and how fast Eric can read a map) you should upgrade to Bilstien or OME shocks before a Baja trip and plan on replacing them when you get home. My OME's lasted 20 minutes after we hit dirt the first time I took the Disco to Mex.

    Go watch Dust to Glory, the 1k is all that x58.4 in real life.
    If you can't fix it with a hammer, then you have an electrical problem.

    They are going to Baja. Not racing in the Baja 1000. But if you run some of the trails (La Rumorosa to Laguna Hansen) like I know Eric does, then be prepared. OME should survive. That is what Eric uses. It is a good reason to look into better shocks. Tons of fun none the less.

    Funds are low? Yes, but you got a smoking awesome RRC now to show for it!

    One day I would like to go to the Baja 1000, or Baja for that matter. Carlos and I are talking about a camping trip down there. My few experiences in Mexico have been great, but needless to say in the state I was in, astateofmike, me and trouble were compadres! Never had a huge desire to head south of the border till recently...

    This year is not the year for me, as I would like the family to be able to travel with me too, but passports for 3 of us already in hand! I need to get the Rosetta Stone Spanish lessons and learn in my commute time...I may be a gringo, but it would be nice to speak Spanish to the locals, even with a hokey nor cal accent!

    Looks like a great trip....can't wait to see photos.....
    It's about people and the Land Rovers that own them.
