Just dropped my Savvy UA while laying in the snow, to see what the hell is leaking bad enough to seap thru the oil change door bolt holes and onto the driveway.

Well it looks like the minor rear main seal drip is getting worse, but also have a little leakage of trans fluid around the pan, so I'm going to drop the pan and change the fluid and filter while I'm at it and throw in a Lubelocker I have for the trans, and guess I'll do the RMS to take care of that... Fun fun. Just what I wanted to do in the winter outside in my driveway.

And figured I'd take a pic of the skid while its out, man do I still scrape it a ton, and can't imagine what the stock shovel would look like... Haha.

Haha if I wasn't the one that paid for rent, I'm not sure I'd even have a checkbook.

As much as I'd like to wait til spring, I want to take care of this as soon as I can, I want to do some snow wheelin'! And I do have a few local clubs members that have said I can use their garage's to do what I need, so it shouldn't be too bad.

I'd love for even an unheated garage. Just somewhere to keep the wind and weather out out. But today wasn't too bad, got up to mid 40's so I could at least drop the skid and access the situation.

Wife bought me this guy for Xmas! Gunna slap it on when I do the 10 Factory rear shafts, hopefully soon, since I just picked up some new axle retainer plates the other day.

I've always loved the look of those Riddler covers!

I've got to give you credit, you are one wheelin' mofo! I wish I could wheel 1/4 of the time you do.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks man! I like the Riddlers too. Back when I sold off the Ballistic covers I figured I'd just leave the stock rear for the time beig, but it's taken some good licks and the bolts are getting ground down too much.

As for the wheelin', I'm having some withdrawls, haven't been in a few weeks due to wanting to fix the rear main seal and minor trans leak, just too cold. Should be done soon tho and then I can do some snow wheelin'!

I thought the Riddlers are countersunk, no? I'll have to go take a peek.

Yea, def important in my eyes. Hopefully I can get the stock bolts out easily. I think the bottom most one is ground in half. Even the bottom of my pumpkin is getting a good workout...

Took advantage of Ruff Stuff sales and it just came in a couple days ago!

Battery Box, so I can upgrade my ghetto ratchet strap hold down:


And some 1.75" x .120" Wall DOM tubing for the rear half of my cage! Hopefully will get this started in a few weeks or so. Just have to get a buddy on board so I can get the rig in his shop.
