I know some people hate on the chrome bumpers, but they were a gift a few years ago so i put em on. As you can see they are quite dented as I put them through some tough terrain... Im savin up for a new bumper set but for now these will do and when I get my winch ill just put the stock bumper back on.

So worked on this all day. Last year I was doing about 100mph on the railbed, blew a belt and it shredded and got wrapped around behind the primary clutch. Replaced the belt on the trail and limped it home. Found that it was leaking oil so I parked it for the season (it was the last ride of the year). So I pulled it into the garage and found that the shredded belt actually wore a hole in the oil line going from the tank to the engine.

Had to pull both clutches off and the belly pan to get at both ends of the line. Got a new line and installed that, now the next project is to get the bellypan and both clutches back on and hopefully start it up and see if its leaking from somewhere else.... :

Well, the sled isn't leaking anywhere but it seems to throttle up and stick at about 5000 rpms or so when its supposed to be idleing... wtf its always something. At least there is no snow up here to ride yet.

Have to work fri, sat, sun & mon so Ill take more of a look on tuesday to see if I can figure it out. Hopefully it isnt the engine saying its ready to blow up. If it is, looks like ill be in the market for a new sled... Not what I wanted to spend my money on.


JEEP news... nothing... lol. Been researching Winches, still looking at Warn and Superwinch as my top choices. Im holding out for good deals and free shipping, not in a rush to get one yet, hopefully by April though.

Topped off the steering fluid the other day and drove it around for a bit. Little hard turning the wheel but after half a bottle of fluid she turns like a charm now. Battery was a little tired but it started up no problems. Put the hardtop and doors back on. now need to change tranny fluid, oil, spark plugs and rotor cap.
