I took a fair amount of pics throughout the process I will try and post up later on to serve as somewhat of a mini-writeup. The whole process was really simple tho, I just recommend taking extra care to mark everything and put it back exactly as it came out.

Ive gotta button the rest back up tomorrow, so Ill be able to truly test it then. Pumped.
Glad to hear it went smoothly for ya. Better than the day DNFJ had today.

My day was wonderful and I don't know why you would spread such vicious lies.

Unless I was on the wrong page of your thread, I believe you said your steering had a quirk and you hit a guard rail?...

Its unreal how much it really helped. The biggest advantage over being open is it really let me slow my pace down and pick just the right line. Before I had to be a bit more careless in some cases to keep momentum going. The locked front just dug and pulled up onto everything. Money well spent!!!

I didnt get hardly any pics this go around, spent so much time exploring new parts of the park I was afraid to go before. I didnt keep track of the odometer but I wheeled for hours, no telling how many miles I covered out there.

I did manage to obtain a bit of carnage first thing this morning.


It was in need of replacing anyway. Been hanging somewhat low, surprised I didnt rip it off sooner.

Heres a shot my buddy took of us while we were taking a break. His is the beater 84 up front there. He bought it for 300 bucks as a stocker and threw some craigslist finds at it, plus welder front and rear. It has practical no floors, carbureted 2.5l, but its his second time with us down there and its held up great and been very capable. The Razr back there really impressed us as well, as well it should for the price tag it comes with.
