My steering dampener was ruined in the last ride (along with bending my tie rod some more), so I finally decided to get some upgrades. Until these are shipped and I install them, I won't be able to join you guys. I just placed the order today, and everything will take at least a week to arrive... the fender flare will take about a month.

I'm also looking at converting my e-disco to a more simpler setup, ala: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/how-put-2007-jk-electric-swaybar-your-yj-writeup-pics-358591/index26.html

I'll be at Badin lake upper loop #32(think that's the same sight from last time SONIC). Got my reservation today for saturday night.

Also: Cracked the base of plastic/coating on my cb antenna. It still works, could use some epoxy. I swapped it in case the flex would eventually break the thin spiral wiring. I'm going to bring it. It's a 3' K-40 antenna (made in USA) if anyone wants it. FREE of course.

Gents,
I will not be able to make the run tomorrow. I made what some might call a seriously bad decision. I bought another jeep this afternoon. I found a 91 YJ on craigslist for $300.00, the frame is solid, the tub is pretty good, the axles, gears and brakes are great. The downside is there is no front clip, engine or trans, or transfer case, or (obviously) shafts, roof, windshield... but it does have 31" BFG KO's and a sweet half door (passsenger side only), and a TITLE! So in an effort to remain able to living in my home with my family, i have to get the aforementioned "hot topic at marraige counceling" out of my driveway and towed to my shop to be worked upon where it can not be sean by her. I can bring it back home only when it resembles a jeep - it has to have a hood and a grill.

Enjoy the run, I was looking forward to the thick deep mud after the rain all week. Please Please Please take lots of pics!

Would it help to turn off the AC and run the heater on hi during the splash? I am thinking this should increase the potential for the blade not to be spinning, does that make sens? Is the burnout from the resistance of teh water / mud, or just that it got really wet and nasty?

Hey John I have your oil pan/cooler :D:laughing:

oh and your BFH...hahaha what a story

Ok here goes, I am going up Kodiak rock section, took me a few times to get up this one section, but made it with a little scraping of course :laughing: make it up that part, stop for little bit then I gotta move up another part, I slide on rock and slam drivers side rim HARD into rock, I make it up and now on pretty flat ground, start hearing some clacky grinding snapping type noise, RUT ROH, sounds like gears either in rear or transfer case. Ok 4 of us listen and decide its the rear, jack it up in nuetral, spin the tires, kinda noise, ok lets open her up, we get a garbage bag and line a small cooler with it(see first line of post haha) drain the rear(I happen to have 2qts of gear oil with me) open then cover and all looks well, no broken parts, CRAP now were back to the transfer case.....we spin the wheels again and Justin(Sonic) gets under the jeep in the center by transfer case and suddenly spots the problem, what the hell is that piece of metal by the driveshaft, RUBBING on the driveshaft :laughing: turns out somehow this part of the skid that is supposed to be behind one piece of metal is now on the outside and rubbing the damn driveshaft...lmfao all that for a piece of metal rubbing the shaft, of course we orginally thought it was transfer case so I was freaking out, thinking it was going to cost a couple grand, then ok only the rear, to just a damn piece of skid that we cant even figure out how it got on the outside lmao WHEW....we tried to bend it back but that didnt work, so Kyle(Sin52) used my visegrips to clamp the 2 pieces together and it gave clearance so no more rubbing. So I did a trail rear diff oil change for nothing :laughing2:

Oh and this was after we had to pull Joe's(enigmaverse) front axle after he broke it at the beginning of the ride, good thing I just had picked up a 36mm socket this week and brought it with me lol.

thanks for the help today guys, that was an adventure:laughing: :beer:

Wrong blue tarp though, I brought my really ratty one I use to cover the backhoe in the winter, full of holes. roasted some Nathan's over the fire before the Gods pissed on the mountain. I was beat so I drank a coupla 5-6 Yuenglings and some :smokin: then hit the fart sack by 2300. My fire was going strong throughout the storm(illegal harwood?). The biggest part of the storm came around 0230-0300. Holy hell.
Had fun and it was nice meeting yous guys.
