    nice axle shafts. was that the rear drive line or the front? i Built a Square D for my brother crawler and has never broke yet. its been in several competitions has maximum slip. they dont work for the rear if your streeting it cause you cant balance it. but you could pogo your whole truck on it with no probs.

    Nothing serious. Just another driveshaft. Thats 3 or 4 now. Going to have to do something about that. lol

    Did a little more work on the bumper Saturday. Almost finished with it. Got a little more grinding and welding to do and wire up the lights. Also took the roof rack off.

    Well here are some pics and vids from the Uwharrie ride july 4th weekend.

    My first attempt at on the hard line at kodak rock didnt turn out to well. Got on top of it and it started running out of gas. Acted like it had a carb on it. lol Was only getting air to the fuel rail so I dont know what the deal was. It was fine all day the next day though.
