I have been busy with work and got the flu, but this last weekend took the rig out for a maiden run….Over all the trip was a success but I did end up blowing up both of my front Air bumps with in 5 minutes of driving off of the trailer…here is my list of issues:

Front drive shaft became loose at the axle (should have used lock tight)
Gas tank straps stretched and caused tank to get a little loose
Front locker did not stay engaged (I just used bailing wire to have the lockers stay on)
Alternator was not wired correctly, so I had a dead battery after about an hour
On vertical climbs engine starved for fuel (fuel tank has baffles and a sump, so not sure how to fix)

Here are some pictures; I ended up tagging along with some friends that were participating in a Toyota Jamboree called AZ Rocks….Over all it was a fun trip and a fun group to camp out with….
