Well I just tanked up the truck... and worked out 15.5 gallons when I got 345 miles on the tank!!! 22.2 miles per gallon !!!!! That's astounding even for my SOHC, 4.10's and 32's. Jeff and I ran pretty smoothly on the way back with out a ton of downshifs and heavy pedal. I am stoked. I know the airing up of my tires to 36.5 psi helped quite a bit. I'm stoked it saved me a couple duckets on my home
You're always wrong and I'm always right J/K!! Yes, that picture is of Doug's tie rod that he bent on our way to Fins & Things, and poor Evan seemed like he was breaking them every 5 feet. Jeff hasn't murdered one... yet.
Ah yes the good old days of Moab 07 I hadn't seen that tarp shade pic before, but it was cool of everyone there to pitch in to see if they could lend a hand to Mike (and I sort of ) to fix it. Mike and company were all nice enough to school me on how to replace one and now I know and wheel with spares. As far as I know, Johnstone and I are the only sport tracs to trash one when wheelin (ironically, I was with him when he pretzeled his outside of Las Cruces ).
Then again.... I think we're practically the only trac explorers that wheel !!!
Incidentally... Jeff's picture he posted earlier shows where the tie rod went up and back (and as I noticed much later... ignored at first due to confusion ) actually notched and bent -while driving back to canyonlands from fins -- my sway bar end link. The end link is still a bit / but pseudo-functional, till I see a need to replace it
