i took my dad to the mounds today. it was great. off-roading isnt really his thing but he had a lot of fun. i ran some of the rock courses and some pretty technical dirt trails and i just didnt have the torque, just reinforcing my decision to get a 4X t-case. i also blew up one of my rear wheel bearings, and i need to make some HD shackles for the rear. the factory ones are bent so i think ill just make some stock length ones and replace all the shackle bushings. making a two piece shackle with some 1/4" flat stock and a drill press should me more than adequate. i already have a set of stock axle shafts with good bearings, so when i get around to repairing the brake lines ill put on some sj410 backing plates and cut out my brake backing plates for quicker rear shaft swaps.
