Planned on it, the driveshafts are getting pulled along with axleshafts to get inspection.

Well went to drummond this past weekend. Disappointing finale to the ranger truggy .

10 minutes into wheeling Turtle Ridge I blew the ujoint at the tcase on the rear output. Damaged the yoke on both sides of the joint. Could of gotten it fixed but we only had about 3 hours to play at turtle ridge so it was pointless. Parked it and rode around with the Grassman the rest of the afternoon. Thankfully it was the last day. I did get a full day of trailriding on Friday with no issues.

Oh well, on to new things. Time to start the EB.

Ferry ride over to the island.


Getting ready for Fridays trail ride Friday.


Tried to fit between the trees (which I did). I had removed the front section of exocage to give the tires more room since they rubbed. Well had I left the cage on I would of fit. Instead the left over section acted as a spike to catch me. Just hooked a winch to the exo and pulled the body sideways to get the bar to clear the tree and up and through I went.


And some of the carnage.

I looked at it yesterday when I went into the garage to get a wrench but that is the extent since last week.

Here is a short clip of pretty much the extent of wheeling I got to do at Turtle Ridge...
