What size tire does Matt run?
Well I got in early yesterday but I've been sicker than hell with this flu crud/ head cold I've had all weekend... it's worse now than it was in Moab, so thankfully I had a BLAST when I was there I had so much fun on Fri and Sat, thanks to Gerald and Mike for leading us.
Testament to those who help out on the trail when you break stuff: When I bent my tie rod not only did Mike (MrBoyle) do almost all the work to try to straighten it, but when I couldn't get the part in town (and would be stuck till Tues in Moab ) he gladly offered to go all the way to Grand Junction, pick up the part and return on Sunday to help me install it so I could get home ok Thankfully, for some unknown reason D uh, Johnstone, aka Aquaman...) Evan (MountaineerGreen) had 4 spares!!!!! Not to mention he wouldn't take anything for them (I'll figure out how to make it up to you and Amber) after calling around we confirmed they are the same part as on the Sport Trac... and Josh (Offroader_69_me) spent a bunch of time teaching and working with me how to replace and doing an 'in-the-field' allignment so I could get home alright. All you guys ROCK!!! you all and a few others helped me a ton... and I got home just fine Now I gotta figure out a way of passing off my pictures so I can get them viewable to y' all.
ps: I'll be back in Moab next year to conquer the rest of Fins :
Josh (Offroader_69_me) close... my site handle is goliath.
You are very welcome. Learn everything you can about your truck. If you wheel it you will be working on it.
Anytime I see someone broke down i try to help. I never know when I will need help on the trail, and usually when i break something, its MAJOR carnage.
Case in point... my transmission died in nevada and i drove my truck home jammed in 4th gear 500 miles. Its sitting in the garage very broken now
Time to start wrenching!
The BII is going to be torn down and will likely miss a bunch of this summer. out comes the sawzall and the check book.....I am going solid axle and some sort of chop top....if there is enough left over I'll get an Atlas t case under this sucker too.....this was the second time in Moab I had to run with 3wd and well I need more travel and wheelbase to keep up with the big dawgs
