Only drawback I have found so far, is I really hate mud more now then ever . Man it sucks worse cleaning a buggy then a vehicle.

And after the mullet run I have found I either need to keep more gas in my cell or modifiy it. Was doing great in the mullet run till I went off camber and emptied the sump and it died. Worst part is I had 5 gallon can full, with me and didn't fill it up before running the courses.

Flexing on a rock bouncer





New rock lights, hard to tell in the pics, but they do light up the ground very well. I was curious being blue how well it would light up the ground. I was impressed and happy with what they did. They were covered in mud at the time of pic as well. Clean they should work even better.


oops





Was happy with the new 42s and kmc's. Got a few scratches in the new rims .

Looking it over tonight and trying to decide how to install an engine skid.....isn't a whole lot of room under there. Link bars and driveshaft sure don't give alot of room. Gonna have to get creative. Hoping to have it done by the end of the weekend.

Had a stump dangerously close to my oil pan if not touching it at the mullet run. Better get that handled now. Also need to get the passenger grab handle installed as well.

Decided I better start working on the buggy since its gonna get beat up this weekend.

Got my rear driveshaft built. Switching from 1350 to 1410. The yoke needs to be moved one spline to line the joints up. Just need to press the ujoints in and change the 14b yoke.



Got my twin sticks installed, just need to make a new plate to cover the tunnel.




Still need to remount my syn rope to my winch. I never did get around to building an engine skid. Hope it don't bite me in the ass.

Really itching to try these mtrs out.
