Jefe', did you get your tie rod fixed yet.
With one of Ricks trailer straps I was able to get it nearly straight, and drove it home like that. I've wanted to redo the track bar ever since I put the D44 in, so I'm just gonna redo steering while I'm at it and see if I can't get a straight tie rod in there (along w/ sleeving it).

That's a great picture Bill. Most of the time pictures do not do the challenging spots justice because of the photographer's position. That spot looks like nobody has ever gone through it before.

It looked like only a few had been through there. I got in there any my front ARB started having problems or my hub wasn't properly engaged. Either way, I was in three wheel drive and didn't get over the last "hop".

Is that the off-camber section?

If so, I believe that's where the hub bolts sheared at.. and it has the huge hole on the other side where DWD's Explorer almost got ate.

I do have to apologize to DWD and Jefe's brother about not warning them about that hole.. I was more worried about keeping the zuk out of that hole.

It would have been "easy" ;) if the front ARB had been working. I was wishing I had my truck right then (I was riding with Rick and pointed out that ledge). I would have done it :D

BTW, That is a great pic Bill :thumbsup:

Johnstone,

Winter and Rick headed back to camp to diagnose Rick's charging and ARB problems. I believe they re-wired the entire ARB setup that day.

Here you see Winter in a familiar position, I seem to do this too often.............

What's up with this pic?

He was actually trying to give a thumbs up in that pic but the cammera was to low to get it.:(

That was the only way you could get under the dash to see what you were doing.

Just jokes, dont think I could have dwd another after Sat night... :)

Dave you HAD to say somethng about my 9000's being upside down didnt you? Guess what, before we headed home pass rear knob is MIA, hahahah drove home fully loaded with the rears set on 3.....pretty soft and swervy with no sway bar :)

Heh Heh...well, it was Felix and his wife's leftover beer, it it hadn't been DIET beer then I would've drank it or traded it for parts...lol.

Can you simply replace the knob on the shock or is it seriously broken?

Glad you had a good time there, I thought you'd like it.;)

When we were getting ready to leave I went to stiffen the shocks back up for the drive home and the pass side one was GONE, I mean toasted.

A local 4x4 shop has one and is giving it to me after work, no charge :)
I will be turning the shocks around.....just make it a "little" harder to adjust them is all :)


hahaha
I say, they should make fireproof tents, BLAMO tent on fire.

You say you should turn your shocks around, BLAMO shock broken.

I am just glad when Rick said "You guys ready to Roll" nothing happened. In this case 2 out of 3 is GOOD
