Looks good should sell easy at that price. Used rear axle can be found pretty cheap.

We cut open a new section today, this will be for the modded rigs. Basically it is an old foundation to a fieldstone house probably from the 1700's.

It starts with a 5ft vertical drop onto a flat floor with the only way out being an uphill rock krawl section. Big tires, lockers, and lots of flex are gonna be the keys here. It's located about 150ft from the twister so easy to get to for viewing purposes. This is going to a fun one.

A little more work and it should be ready, we have two boulders that have to placed with the larger one weighing several thousand pounds so moving it has been an issue. My tractor weighs 7000#'s and when it hits this rock the damn thing stops cold! Should give ya an idea of what I'm trying to move haha.

Wil, the tractor is a new addition it was a freebie! It had been sitting in a barn for years and I was told if you can fix you can have it... They didn't have to say that twice! It's an old Russian air cooled diesel, thing rocks.

Sweet deal. Wouldn't have to tell me twice either. However, I wouldn't be able to fix it so that deal would go out the door, lol.

Snow wheeling sounds awesome. Especially if we get a lot of snow

Lowest we've had run here without a beadlock was 2.5psi. They were 40" nitto mud grapplers, a heavy stiff tire and boy do they work well at that pressure. He was eventually able to pull the bead on one of them after a particularly aggressive move. We reseated it and moved on. Most people here run between 8 and 15. As you develope a feel for how you like to wheel you will find a pressure that suits your style of driving.

Around 11 give or take. Weather will have people arriving at various times. Weatherbug has just lowered snowfall totals for this area so we should be good. Nice having the tunnel for a garunteed clean area to hang and maybe bbq.

Sorry I had to cut it short. Wife called and something came up. Had a great time and thanks for having me. Look forward to giving it a try again.
