You remember guys I so far bent 2 T-rods. I finally put a chromoly one. We will have to see how it will do on the next run.
By the way sorry I missed this run.

In all fairness to that busted tie rod, it was compromised already. It got bent at Mottino and should have been replaced. No more cheap Auto Zone crap......I promiss!

Hey Joe, glad to hear you upgraded the tie rod. Sorry you missed the run, but there's always more to come right?

Maybe the 24th I will put up a run. Dan is getting some work done and should be finished by then....I'm not sure where, but will figure out something

JB 4x4 makes the brackets for the unit bearing and Dana 30 for a true High Steer setup.. so no more wording about hitting the T-rod on the rocks

I've heard long arm kits on LJ hang awfully low and drag how true is that?
Pshhh forget the kits buddy! Let's start on that mid arm build!

One thing I forgot to tell you is that you should just outboard the shocks and coil correct like Bill's while you are doing everything. I didn't on mine and kinda regret it now. Don't want to replace my pretty much new shocks so I'm running this way for a while.

How much is involved in getting a welder set up to use on the trail. Will 70 amps do? How many amp A/C inverter is needed to operate it?

It'll still hit, you end up finding bigger rocks with somewhat same results, ask me how I know
Have straightened the damn thing close to 10 times. Atleast it doesn't collapse. Pretty much hits the diff cover before it bends to far.

Was on John bull yesterday afternoon tried something creative at the gatekeeper. Didn't work as well as I had envisioned

Decided I needed some mountain air today, so went out to Big Bear and roamed around had a ball
Had so much fun on John Bull it's almost criminal.
Finally tried to tackle the gatekeeper all the way on the left didn't quite go as planned lol.
Oh well lil pull to the left then a quick pull to the right and all was well with the world again.
Trail is wonderfully dug out haven't had this much fun on that trail in years


John Bull 004 by aartjestaartje, on Flickr


John Bull 006 by aartjestaartje, on Flickr

Climbed the baddest obstacle on the trail all the way on the left, crawled right up and over, pretty cool


John Bull 007 by aartjestaartje, on Flickr

Lil ways after Holcomb on 2n08 I came across a Lynx, pretty lil kitty cat
That was cool
So here is a question anybody up for a Night run John Bull Holcomb Dishpan or Motino? Goldmountain can be thrown in the mix too if need be.
Love night runs

Dusy is fun, did that 3 years ago. Not as hard as it was made out to be.
Loved the scenery and was fun camping

Great, i'll keep an eye for it. I'm missing all the fun. I haven't been out for few weeks now.
Is it the 24th yet

This set up is nice. I did not look around long enough to see the price tag so that may be another story.

That is not too bad. I have been using a 220 Lincoln arc welder for projects for the past 30 years. I have been wanting something with more capabilities but I just don't have the need for more stuff in the garage. But this thing looks very interesting and not too cumbersome.
