Was that you in the buggy that was waving to me? I knew I knew the person but couldn't think who it was. Wish you had said howdy.

Thanks by the way.

You and me both. That was when we realized I had a trans problem and took it back to the campground for some evaluation.

What happened to you?

Melted throttle cable and shifter cable, apparently ceramic coat doesnít contain heat like they say it will, waste of money for me

Have you wheeled enough to test the new rocker boatside panels? You got me really considering this mod for the winter on the CJ. I hope you have had enough seat time and got your bugs figured out.

Trans is good thanks to @Tom tranny tom, @Hosejockey and @JohnnyJ.

I like the boatsides. They seem to do well to the point that @Tab and @CheapThrillB2 stopped spotting me.

We stopped spotting you because we come to the realization that you indeed cannot teach an old dog new tricks. They just don't listen.

His boatsides work awesome and after watching him wheel, I'm considering them.. We laughed many times as he passed by rocks and boulders that filled the gap were his rockers once were.

Well over the years I have broken 3 or 4 Yukon stub shafts. Last week at the Loonie Run I broke another one. I was pretty convinced to upgrade to RCV’s until I started reading up on what a lot of rock crawler guys had to say. Seems to be mixed opinions on them. But what was very consistent was the opinions of Branik axle shafts. They come in 4340 or 300m. After talking to Brandon and Stan at Branik I opted for a set of 4340’s. Time will tell....

Did they by chance say what the rockwell was on their shafts? I don't know much about the 300m, but if you're around the 40 Rc mark, should get some good rigidity with some shock loading capabilities with the torque loading of the 4340

Thought the RCVs might have been 8620, but they list 4340 and 300m. It appears they do not advertise hardness though

Yes. I’ve been gonna update but my picture taking sucks.

For the past 3 weeks I have been at the Oakland Mines ORV property staking some trails and installing boundary and feature signs. Lots of exploring. Then last Saturday @Ironman Offroad hosted the first ever event on the new site. Lots of fun.

Ironically while giving some Oakland County park staff a tour I had a bang. Turns out that after 10 years I ripped my front upper control arm bracket off the frame. What luck since I was in Harlan last month. So I limped it back to the trailer and last Sunday it went on the hoist for a preplanned mod.

The original build was 103” wheelbase. A couple years ago I stretched the rear back 3” to 106”. I’m now pushing the front end 3” forward with a target wheelbase of 109”.

As of this morning the frame bracket is repaired, bumpstops and track bar brackets are removed and the new links are made. 2 are in and the 3rd will be in within the next hour. Then I can cycle it looking for interferences and figure out the new track bar mount and what shock mounting mods are required.
