The drive train seems to be ok so far. I drove it off the trailer and into the garage. It didnt make any strange noises or anything from the motor or tranny. Well other than the noises coming from the rear axle and shocks as they rubbed and popped.
The sad thing is that the jeep only had 16,800 mile on it. It was just getting broke in.

Oh well, looks like I will be co-dawg'n for john in the A class now.
Man, I'd look for something that's at least wheelable. that's a **** ton of work to swap all that over, with no wheeling until it's 100%. Plus, I'd be able to do more **** than you for a while. Hmmm, the nutkick smiley must be on IndyORV...

I'm so sorry to see this, that vid was so intense and you my friend are an amazing racer. Considering you kept up right behind that guy the entire race and you were eating dust with 50% visability or less. Unfortunately with that kinda wheeling, very small calculated mistakes are far worse then slow speed stuff.

I really can't even try to put myself in your shoes right now w/out feeling sick to my stomach, but through the tragic events I've faced in my life, I've learned that everything happens for a reason and things always turn out better if you let em..

I say a fundraiser is in order

I rolled a '99 TJ down an overpass hillside. Insurance payed out $1000 more than I paid for it 5 years prior.
Now I have a 05 LJ that came with a few bells and whistles.

There's always an upside, you just have to know which way to look.

nothing really, just slowly taking stuff off. Hard part is finding space to store the good parts.

You can store them on my jeep!

BTW, I don't need those lights anymore. Front end will look a little different at next months meeting.

"Rebuilds" can be fun. My build thread is following a roll. You'll find ways to go more extreme now that fancy yellow body panels have been compromised.
Now this is no lie!

Good luck on the rebuild man! If you need a hand, you got my number
