I have no idea how to fix it. If I drive anywhere it just spews out diff fluid. Iv taken it to predator like 5 times now, they said they had to drill a hole in the diff so the arb can depressurize. Cost me 200 and most the time I don't even use the arb and it still spews it out

Bring it back to predator. Tell them they didn't fix the problem.

You know I am starting to get pissed. You think this is fine go for it. I am not. I have a bad feeling about this run and every time I've had that feeling someone has gotten screwed.

And for those of you who ain't "skeered" I would invite you on an ice run down the gulches or Manchester Creek in February.

I have 5 different times. Now I took it today. Now it's just a waiting process to see if it will stop leaking

I think its Sound advise to fallow the gut on this. It's saved me many a time. It's a 45 min drive for me so I will check it out but I'm glad to hear your oppinion on this especially with your experiance in the matter. Hope to see u on another run soon. No mean to offend.

I'm the one who needs to apologize. I was really looking forward to the run but it's just isn't worth a three hour drive to get into trouble that I can't get out of. Then there's the three hour drive back.

I'm refurbishing an old warn winch and it is very tedious and frustrating. It will be more than worth it when it's done but in the meantime it is a giant PITA. The frustration is carrying over because it also means that I'm missing runs.

Anyway, sorry about my outburst last night.

I agree with Ed guys. Mind yourself on ice, I have gotten into some very bad spots because of ice. Luckily it was always my group who all had winches and a bunch of recovery and offroad experience. If there is a chance I recommend novices rethink. Trail ratings can go from a 5 to a 9 because of ice.

stay on 36 for about 4 or so miles and then left onto Left Hand Canyon Road. there is a big restaurant right there called Greenbriar Inn. head up the canyon about 2 miles and the picnic area will be on your right, there's a big parking lot right there with some pit toilets. can't miss it.

Thanks, this came from traildamage

From Boulder, take Canyon Boulevard west to Nederland. Take Route 72 north from Nederland 16.2 miles to Peaceful Valley. Follow signs to Camp Dick on the left. Just past the first pit toilet you will see Forest Service Road 115 on the right, a dirt road that starts uphill. This is the end of Bunce School Road. The Park Creek trailhead is just under a mile from this point. Take Park Creek a short distance to find the T-33A Plane Crash trailhead on the right.
