Well trailered to rocks and valleys yesterday. Afterf getting all of mem. Days carnage fixed. I drove it around the gravel pit. And up the rock wall. Then I let my wife drive it through undertaker, all of python, and up all the stump hill trails. Went back to the parking lot and upon returning to the lot the gear box seal at pitman arm shaft blew out. Sarah did pick up a little rocker damage on python, the rocks between the trees right about the end of the trail she just drove up and over the center of them.

So I bypassed the box to keep pump alive and not empty, then proceeded to attempt winch hill with manaul steering and promptly broke my inter. steering shaft.

One thing that sucks about leading trail is when you do the obstacle nobody is there to take a picture, but their there to take a pic of you spectating everybody else


And of course everybody helping me get it on the trailer.....



Lets see thanks Vondirt, Alboy79, Feva4u, opie93ex, and GONMUDN. And anybody else that helped get me back on the trailer.

At least it will help keep it from folding like a pretzel. That rocker is/was bent pretty good

Beat her up good Sunday, and she took it. Only thing I've noticed is my alternator is weak/might not be charging anymore. Guess I should take it apart and check the brushes .

Visited Bundy today.....


In the devils pit or valley or whatever...


The pic was AFTER the front came back down and settled. Shame on me, when it leaned back and to the left I stuck my arm out against the wall and I think it was to that teeter point where it may have made the difference between going over or coming down. The drivers side was resting on the hill. Both fronts were off the ground, the LF sidewall was touching the side of the hill.

I more or less intentionally laid it on its side on nut check. I refused to cradle the washout and intentionally drove with the drivers down in the bottom vs strattling. Got to a certain point where the LF climbed the bank and it went up and onto the pass. side. I was trying to work out of it till the oil started to fill the pass cylinders and it started to smoke really bad, but it held oil pressure. Just burned a qt and no other issues other then a bunch of dead mosq.

Went out to Warn valley and beat it pretty hard in there and almost made it all the way through until I turtled out and had to use the winch for 3 ft. I had the LR tire extremely bound up into a rock and with the winch was really putting a strain on it. I was surprised my 14B ring and pinion or the LR shaft held. I was waiting for the boom/crack from either.
