Went to Gulches OHV park for our first club trip. Had a great time, broke a few parts. Threw a U joint in my rear driveshaft and wallowed the CV out. My driver door latch ripped out of the door so gotta figure that one out. Some pulley up front is ticking like a boss now, might be my power steering pump. Gotta take a stethoscope and see which ones making the racket. And when I drove back in front dig after taking the rear shaft out something was clunking like mad and it varied with the throttle. Well see what happens, might just rebuild my tcase since my rear driveshafts out.



Check out some of the videos we got. Didn't get many pictures. If you haven't subscribed to our YouTube page I would appreciate it!

I would definitely say its the hardest trail in the park for us. Obviously 3D and all of skinny pedal ridge is a little more ridiculous but that's not even reasonable for our rigs. Wish we got to spend more time with yall driving around the park but its a little hard to lead 20 rigs around a 90 acre park.

Got the main foundation of my bumper done. I'm still debating how to wrap it around the side, and how much sheet metal I'm going to cut out. Contemplating cutting a lot of it out and plating back in. I have so many cracks in the rear of the unibody by the liftgate.

Started with a piece of 4x4 1/4 wall, wanted 3/16s but went by out steel place 3 different times after they told me they had it in stock so just got fed up and grabbed 1/4. Its a heavy biatch. Cut out the ends to bend them in.



Painted up on the Jeep


It has three 1/2 grade 8 bolts in the stock trailer hitch locations holding it on. Im going to drill two more holes through the side of the unibody to sandwich it vertically too. Yesterday I took apart the 8.8 to replace outer axle seals. I love having C clips and having to take the aussie locker out just to change seals. Got it all done in an hr and a half, feel like I'm getting a little better at taking everything apart on the Jeep quickly.


Anyone else going to RBD??? Leaving next Friday and am super pumped. Got to build my tcase skid, replace rear coil posts, fix a leaking water pump, find doors, and a few other things before the trip so Ill be busting butt on this guy.

Went to RBD this past weekend at Morris MTN. My 2nd time at this park both times for RBD. Last year I ran Good Bad and the Ugly right when we got there and ripped my steering box off. This year I wanted revenge, ran it 3 times and then on the 4th time I ripped the balljoints out of the passenger side of the 44... broke both shafts too. Found a big enough socket and banged in some new balljoints to get it off the trail. Wheeled 3 dig the rest of the weekend.

Only picture I snagged.

Added to the fleet and retired the 5.9 ZJ as my daily driver. Picked up a 96 with the 4.0 and 118k miles for $500. Lovin it.
