thanks snarf, been finally getting use to editing video's so hopefully they will turn out better.

getting my windshield replaced today after almost a year of needing it. I've had 3 huge cracks in it that are right in front of my eye sight. lowest quote i got for a replacement was $230 compared to $300-400 everywhere else so that didn't seem like a bad deal to me

After staring at 3 huge cracks in my windshield for almost a year I finally decided to get a new windshield. Happy to get the "gulf coast crawler" sticker off since I'm no where near there haha

Busy weekend, put in new Ujoint on passenger side axle, new TRE, adjusted toe that was out abot 3", Got it inspected, Wheeled it and put a nice rip in the softtop in two places, crushed passenger side mirror, and had a tire come off the bead. Nothing major but all in good fun. I'll post up pics and videos later on when they upload.

two vids of a trail we ran called "tittie twister". everyone that went through came out with some kind of carnage. This is the trail that took my soft top and mirror. Next time I go out I'm making someone film me. only person with a camera so I always end up filming everyone cause I can film myself driving

Cleaning the jeep out and getting ready for my trip back to Doe Valley on Saturday.
Last time I was there I was on a Budget Boost and 35's. High centered a lot, broke an axle and got some nice dents on the body.
Now that I have a more capable jeep I'm going to try some of the harder trails and also do the trails that were a PITA for my 6speed/3.21's and 35's.
Is it saturday yet?? (some old photo's from past trips)




I think this is part of their trail they call "hells gate" that I've been wanting to try

Tested the jeep out pretty good today. Went through a trail called "fantastic voyage" I wasn't to sure I'd make it through. Spent almost 11 hours in the jeep just driving to doe valley, wheeling and the driving home. Here's some short videos that I was able to upload quick. http://youtu.be/nJ1-RUsS6gI http://youtu.be/-tiarv50aDA

after wheeling the past couple weekends I got do some maintenance.
-Front axle doesn't seem perfectly centered. Driver side spring is bowed in rubbing the frame
-think I need track bar bushing again. Definite in the rear, have to look into the front more
-need to do brakes
-swap my driveshafts. Been riding on my bad one too long
-Looks like I may have a ujoint cap working it's way out and I just got a new joint pressed in >
-Power steering needs looked at. Leaking at the bottom of the box at the sector shaft. thinking of buying chinese one, then just sending mine out to get rebuild and tapped for hydro assist.
-debating going back to 35's (or a lighter 37)

Well driving home from work I noticed something wasn't right and was hearing some bad grinding. Pulled over on the side of the road to see whats up and found my rear trac bar has striped and isn't holding in place.

Tried to use some ratchets straps to get my axle centered again to get me home, but i couldn't get it to work on my own. Got it towed to a friends garage and called it a night. He's going to check and see if the threads are still good on the actual trac bar and hopefully I'll only have to order a new adjusting shaft and jam nut but may just see what else is out there
