Also need to throw out a great job well done to Paramaniac a.k.a. McGyver for his awesome trail trac bar repair on Eric's rig. Still can't believe it just popped apart like that. Met some very nice locals at Moody's Diner on our way out of town. Best strawberry pie I have had in some time. Thanks again Eric for the suggestion!!

now for my breakage...

On Saturdays trail ride i started hearing a little clank but finished the day out.

Sunday the clank wasn't there so i figured it must have been something that was in the jeep on saturday that i had taken out for sunday. but that was not the case.

After it becoming a real annoyance to me i took a look under the beast and found my driver side lower control arm jam nut loose. well i cranked it back up tight and all seemed good until i started hearing it again.

so we stop for a quick second to check everything out under the rear again and Nick (paramaniac) notices the jam nut on the track bar had backed it way off. so with a couple turns i get it snug but it then the nut breaks loose. GREAT! so after a few more tries i get it snug to the point of not over tightening it. Nick and i then proceed to apply a couple layers of electrical tape and then a hose clamp on the back side of the jam nut to prevent it from working its way back again.




well we hit the trail again and ALL IS GOOD! no noise no nothing! awesome!


spoke too soon... i went through a rough puddle with some rocks that shook the jeep resulting in the noise coming back. i quickly stop to check out our quick trail fix and the clamp is still in place but the track bar is now completely separated from the johnny joint and laying on the axle. hmmmmmm sooooooooooooooooo

the johnny joints threads are stripped like crazy!


Nick and I debate the situation and Nick comes up with at plan. we use a ratchet strap and some man power to push and pull the body into place above the axle. then Nick removed the johnny joint while Fklein6768 mixed up some JBweld.


the plan moved forward as some JBweld was then applied to the threads and the johnny joint installed back into the track bar and reinstalled the trackbar into place. we tightened the ratchet strap up and tied all loose ends up with a few knots and the masterpiece was put together.







well it made some noise for the rest of the trail but i was able to limp out and drive back to camp and then later limp back home without any further complications. time to contact Teraflex.


BUT... I HAVE TO SEND MAJOR THANKS TO NICK (paramaniac) FOR JUMPING RIGHT IN AND HELPING OUT WITH THE MACGYVER ROLL.

awesome! glad you had a great time! Moody's is a great place to go for pie i have to agree.

and that trackbar simply amazed me... and the fix too! at least it was an easy diagnosis and not something like gears.

I'll have some pics later, guys. I'm beat.

Pulled into the driveway this morning around 0500 after a couple minutes under 8 hours driving and just less than an hour stopped time.

Downed 2 bottles of 5 hour energy and countless Mt Dews to make it that far.

Had a great time except for my brainfart on the arrival at camp on Sunday. Sorry to have added that to an enjoyable weekend. I really need to think before I act. Brainfarts suck.

Now we're talkin! That place looks AWESOME. Really wish I could have made the trip up with you guys. I would guess it is safe to say that there will be another Maine run next year (or sooner). Can't wait to see more pics and vids. Nice job guys (and girls).

Absolutely Eric, I was saying to Barb this morning that if it weren't for Pete's spotting I would have never made it down that face and it's a really good thing I didn't know that Jeremy was the only other one to do that side before I was taken down that-lol!

We have some really great vids too, I'm working on them now, some are really long so I'll have to do some chopping but I should have quite a few others up soon, just looking at them right now to see what we have, we got 28 vids!

There were some pics of the feast but I don't know who was taking them and the flash wasn't on- they are in the photo album.

Great pics guys! I didn't realize maine had mountains!

emetal, you're lucky it didn't break on the highway for you! Things like that happen more often than you think... it's caused by not keeping/making sure jam nuts are fully tightened at all times. It doesn't take much time to strip the threads out if there isn't a preload on them. Glad you were able to make it out & great fix with the JB weld! Haha.

took the LONG way home last night... down the coast, hit a few of the small towns then went through Boston... avoided the bridge that shall remain unnamed and made it in exactly 12 hours.

just woke up and will get to pics once i get moving again.

i have a few shots of the bugs in the pots, but im pretty sure we were all too busy eating to take pics!

Eric, thanks for a great weekend, glad i could help.
