Looking classy Booty! Keep it up.

Let me know when you go to 60s and if you are willing to ship your old axles.

I was able to combine two stock D44 rear lockers to make one good one after I busted it. It took some time figuring out the proper orientation of spacers but after a few trial rebuilds and getting great at removing and installing carrier bearings, it's done. Works like new again.




Then, less than 3 hours later today I was playing at our favorite rock garden and BAM!! I blew another front axle. Same side as the first time, 2 months ago. Luckily I still had the original stock axles so i just replaced the chromoly axle with them. That's what blew today.
A few weeks ago at Jeep Beach I blew out the passenger side front chromoly axle due to a bad spotter on the rock pile. Bought a complete chromoly axle repair kit and only used what was needed at that time. Looks like I'm gonna install the remaining axles sooner than I thought.





Figured I was replacing a few bearings, I might as well build a custom bearing press.

Just saw you interviewed on Truck U from the Jeep Beach episode. They had a nice shot of you climbing the steps and getting hauled off the rock pile.

They actually had quite a bit of film of my Booty doing the obstacle course, going over all the big stuff at the end and interviewing me but cut it down to that. Really bad spotter got me wedged on that giant rectangular boulder you see there and told me to steer side to side, with my hydraulic steerings force and being wedged tight I blew out a u-joint up front, which also bent the ears of my chromoly shafts. $600 and hours later I was back on the course. All in a dayz jeep play!

The spotter took me right on top of this boulder that got wedged between my tires. He clearly didn't have experience and it cost me $600 for new front axles.

Once again I had to break into my rear locker due to busted gears. Luckily it was still the stock Rubi locker.



Krawling up climbs like this is what's killing my gears. I need to lighten my load and beef up my equipment. If I'm going to continue scaling those mini cliffs.




Inside my stock Rubi Dana 44 locker. Second time I busted the teeth on the same gear.


Broken teeth.



Booty's rear, I'm seeing this quite often.

The Booty Shop has invested in a new tool.




Time to reinvent the Roll Bar.
