Ledoux Days Kaycee Wyoming

Postby 39Ratrod » Fri Jun 24, 2016 7:54 am

Went down to Kaycee for the 6th annual Ledoux Days. It was a blast! Drove the Rat Rod the 50ish miles south and took the camper. The campground had a deal with a local church that allowed us to camp in their grass right under a huge tree just a block from the stage. The shade was welcome as it was Hhott! Ned Ledoux opened the concert with an acoustic set, then came Corb Lund who is totally rad, the Neds tribute band to his father Chris closed out the night. It was an awesome time!

I got a text Sunday morning as I was getting ready to head home from a friend I hadn't seen since tech school in '99. He was camped just across town by the creek. We had a great visit!


Tow duty. The 500 Caddy didn't mind a bit.

Very cool. I'd bought an old Kenskill teardrop and after all I found that I couldn't save to make a nice one, I'd rather have done the ratrod thing to it.

It's a '87 Jeep YJ frame. '39 Chevy cab chopped 4.5", 500 Caddy, th400/spicer 20 t-case, Sterling 10.25 with 4.10's in the rear and a Dana 44 with 3.31's up front. The rear tires are 39.5 TSL's that have been blistered from burnouts, and it is now effecting the 4wd a bit. The front are 33" Pro-Comp X-terrains. The grill is a late 40's early 50's Jeep. It's 4-linked and bagged front and rear. The original frame mounts for the leaf springs are now the lower arm mounts. The wheel base is stretched to something like 108".

Thanks for your interest!

That would have been a very cool camper! Not savable? The Rat build was very fun. It was great to exercise the artistic part of myself.
