Well, Took it out this weekend. Overall it preformed well, but I did have a few issues. First, the factory fan ended up being took close and when I high centered on my front driveshaft the fan chewed a hole in my radiator. I had to replace the radiator and install an electric fan.

When this broke, we had to spend about 6 hours recoverying my rig out of Windrock and in the process I ended up warping the head and blowing the head gasket. We were having difficulty getting it out of the park and I had to start it and drive it a few times. One time I had to drive a little too long and I believe that is when the Motor problems began.

Basically now, the motor won't run over 210 degrees. So I will be replacing my motor with a fresh rebuild this winter.

The only other thing was that the shocks are a little too stiff. I am going to take some of the oil out and try it again. I might also add a sway bar to the rear. Otherwise, I was very pleased with it's performance.

Now for the pics.








This is where I blew the radiator:
