Got some time in June to change the timing chain. Drove to my buddy's house in Greenwood, SC to use his garage. Quick install - total of 4 hours hours from pulling into the garage until the test drive. The old chain was stretched to the max and the guides were even broken. Doesn't sound like a diesel tractor anymore!!

With the timing chain out of the way, I headed up to Uwharrie National Forest in NC. Stayed in a campground there, nice place and the trails are less than a mile away. Most were pretty boring, so we ran Daniel forward and backward. Sweet trail and i'll be going back for sure. I got to use the skidplates a lot and ripped a 3" gash in a sidewall. Good times!!

Lot's of updates on this over the last year.
- Superior rear axleshafts - Stock shafts still haven't broken, just some insurance and now I have the stock ones as spares.
- 33" MT/R's w/Kevlar - LOVE these tires!
- Water pump exploded & replaced.
- Upgraded T-case shifter linkage.
- Now at 194,500+ miles.

Since the damn thing won't die, i'm going to keep it going. Found some cheap parts on Craiglist down here in SC and will do some work during the 4th of July break. The exhaust leak at the head drives me insane so i'm going to take a look at that also.
Pics to come!
