A little fun we had on Sat. the first YJ tried hard to gain this obstacle, and failed, broke his right rear axle shaft. We pulled him out of there, and had him fixed after a couple of long hours. Replaced his axle shaft, on the trail, after pulling the broken one out. It took a magnet to get all the pieces out of the tube. First time I had seen this done on a D-35c axle, especially on the trail, and he also had lockers. That was some good work by one of our club members. The Ford Expedition in the pix, almost rolled over, the stump caught him by the tie rod, and held him in place while we got him winched. That stump is the same one in all the shots. It has torn up more vehicles than any other obstacle at this wheeling park.

4th picture down from the top. The red YJ with the black stinger, and flat tube fendors. You know, the one with 42" tires, and full hydraulic steering.......and the coilovers.......didn't think it was that hard to spot.......lol. The drivers side rear wheel is about 2.5 ft. lower than the front tire. Almost had it maxed out.

Looks like a good run Blu. Did they get all your issues straightened out with the build?

And now that picture is a good lesson for D35 people to learn. If you wheel it will break.

It does seem to be running better now, I guess the computor learns as you go. I did get everything tightened up on the links, even replace some himes. They were able to find some Grade 10.9 bolts to replace the bent 8.9 bolts. SAE is grade 8 vs. grade 5 that came with the kit. It did real well Saturday, and nothing is loose. I am happy with it now. Also, the D35 is the same one I have been talking about in other posts. That is the YJ we took to Moab, with 35" tires, Deep V Klune, locked both ends. He has wheeled that Jeep for 3yrs like that, and finally broke an axle. I told him he was blessed. He is a very careful, and good wheeler though, and I am sure that is why it lasted as long as it did.

Thanks for asking Bro.

Sorry I missed the pic the first time as it was red just like the pics above it. Do they sell any color other then red in your area?
BTW you need to head out to AZ to test that thing. We will set you up with a couple good test runs

Ha, nice segway Hackle. Don't worry Blu, I'm fearing Hackle's reprisal as well. I'm finally locked up front now and Joe told me to be ready for more fun than I've ever had (I'm reading ending up shiny side down into his vicious laugh)

I look forward to hooking up with you guys out there in Phoenix, that is for sure. All I need is some more seat time in this new ride, and I'll be ready. I really appreciate the moral support you guys have given me. I need to call Joe, and thank him for all the time and help that he put into this project as well. He is quite the humanitarian, the way he was going to bat for me. You are a great bunch of guys.

HA, It was his own fault. He's the one that decided to punch the gas and the brake at the same time.

Yeah, I've already been informed about my participation on Collateral Damage. Gotta pick up a couple new tires first and then I'm all over it. And there's no need for anyone else to have rock lights since you and Joe have those monster 8" cornea burners on the front of your junk.

I don't think I know your rig so I do not know if you are invited or not. Did you watch the video I posted up? That will probably let you answer the question yourself
