    Graves Mountain Rally Buy-Sell-Trade

    I have a deuce winch mounted on the frame extensions and front bumper, plus the drive shaft and a number of other parts, but no PTO. I'm never going to use it - I don't take my trucks where they are likely to get stuck. With a little help from my friends, I can get it to the Rally if someone...

    The Columbia, SC group has all made it to home base, but my black Plano box with my rally tee shirts, a pillow, and my dirty clothes didn't. We think it may have been put in the M105 trailer that all the tents, tables and chairs were stored in.
