Today was awesome. Pics coming as soon as I can get them from the camera to the computer and uploaded. It was great meeting new people and I was impressed with the 11 vehicles we had that we didn't have any problems or carnage.
Today was awesome... thanks guys for a great day of wheelin It was a little more difficult than I remembered (as a passenger 2 years back), but enough to keep you on your toes... with some spots where you might just have to drop the hammer for the momentum to roll up some loose undulating spots :
Judicious use of the throttle is always a crowd pleaser, and Slaughterhouse was a great trail for 'super-stock' type trucks.
We had a pretty interesting group... with some really nice rigs to see in action We'll have to do it again for early spring. I'd like to do an early spring run in the Leadville area, maybe I can enlist ProjectAviator's help and plan a Spring run to say; McCalister Gulch, Ptarmigan, Mosquito Pass and/or some others (like the one some of us 2 years back?!)
The BII has:
front end issues still, something splined is loading up then slipping
Is apparent in 4x4 low and high, with one or both hubs locked, locker engaged or not. I am going to check my slip yoke pieces again for wear
Trans/t case issue. Before Moab 07 I installed a new T case I got from a friend, my 1354 was tired. Ever since I have had issues with the truck in low range slipping into neutral...
jack stand time!
Great run, great group! Cant wait to do it again!
pictures coming later....
I will say i really enjoyed wheeling with you guys. I haven't been on this forum too much, spend most of my time on rmftc.com and ranger-forums.com, but wheeling with you all may have brought me over here! I'm always game to run with you guys, that is if you don't mind a Ranger or 2 coming along!!!
