That was really the last "big ticket" upgrade for me. Just would like rope for the winch, get my rear bumps mounted and couple lil tweaks to the motor to get it running at it's full ability. Little clean up here and there.
Too bad you girls packed up it and headed home was looking forward to wheeling with some other rigs. But I got to hang with Josh

Your rig looked good, other than that tailgate

I think there is one for sale on here.

I can run my 6.0 all day in a park setting and burn about 8 gallons of gas. Even at Silver Lake doing a lot of HP stuff never burns more than about 10. As far as trail riding goes, I've left camp @ 8:00 am & returned @ 10:00 pm and only burned about 15 gallons.

The only time I ever ran out of gas was 2 really long (get back at midnight) runs, when my gas gauge quit (the first time) and when RenegadeII siphoned my tank.

I think I used 2.5 gallons in about 5 hours, maybe 3-4 actual wheeling hours.

about the same here (lq4 6.0). romped the crap out of it at harlan and only used about 8-10 gallons each day.

we'll find out how SL goes this june when it's 2wd all day and the rev limiter

definitely not as thirsty as I expected. that and the 22 gallon cell gives me a little insurance

There is a gas station around the corner

Next time we won't let you leave so easily.

Oh and you will need to change the oil at some point too, just in case you forget

Why you have to jynx me?

looks like there's some pretty beat up parts in the front end.....How ever did that happen???

wheel bearings , axle joint and hub bearings on drivers side for sure......ball joints are shot and the welds were broken on the knuckles for the hi steer. Oh....and lets not forget some new brake pads. Yes I know brakes are over rated......but hell it's already torn apart.......why not?

I knew the front end was in need of some maintenence......was hoping for a little less.. but whatever...it's only money right?
