It was in the big valley. Was one hell of a washout when we started. Beefy broke his transfer case in it. Had a tire wide trench that had a 5ft wall in it.

Time for some rear aluminum lower links. Both rears are now bent. Haven't looked over the rest for any damage yet.

But I do need to look into small driveability concern. Seems once warmed up I get a SES light and my temps go up a little more then normal and sounds like its spark knocking a little. Thinking I may have a bad o2 sensor.

Finally getting a feel for the struts and the new suspension. Feeling more confident with it on obstacles.

Grizzly locker worked well to.

Really starting to like the MTR's as well. We ran the hump trail yesterday, and while it was a lot wetter then usual, they really seemed to grab the rocks and logs better then my ltbs did. This was the first real comparison I have had between the two where I have used them both in the same place.

I was going to go aluminum because mine were bent. My originals were 1-3/4 x 1/4 wall & they bent shortly after I built them. When I looked at the weight savings versus cost, I couldn't justify it. Instead I went 1-3/4 x 3/8 wall and then drilled & tapped my 1-1/4 shank joints in instead of having to weld in bungs. I couldn't find anyone who had bent their links using that size and so far, neither have I.
My steel links weigh 6 pounds more than aluminum would. I forget the cost difference but it was significant, like $75 more.

Interesting that you're liking the MTR's. I still don't know what I am going to do when I get rid of the Krawlers.
