I really need to change my front driveshaft setup. Ate another support bearing.

I had issues with my front axle popping out of 4wd. I changed out the shift rail spring. Hoping it will hold better. I had shortened the original one to make shifting easier. Worked well for awhile, but then had issues. Hoping its now taken care of.

Really looking forward to the mounds tomorrow.

I'll be at The Mounds tomorrow too. I'll have to keep an eye out for you guys. I'll be decked out in my Carhartts on a red Polaris utility quad.

Actually I glanced at yours at breakfast. I don't have the room to do a side mount like yours, but I do have that same style bearing sitting on my bench. I just need to drop my skid and modifiy everything to try and fit it. Just been lazy. I'd have to mount bolts going downing.

Damn was it cold yesterday. So cold it hurt to even get the camera out. So this was the only pic lol. It was likes teens for temps and single digit wind chill. So cold even with soup on the exhaust it never got more then Luke warm .


I couldn't get the v notch in holy Moley. Tried multiple angles but just couldnt get the rear axle to line up right. The under cut was just to large and wide. Wouldn't of thought 42s and full width would be to small lol. Rear steer and I think I could of got it. The slap wall was fun, especially attempting it after ice formed on it from the previous attempt by alboy . But we got her done.
