Hoping I get my front driveshaft today and then I won't have to take it out and put it back in for every wheeling trip. Here is how far it's extended as of today. This is after I had it straightened and balanced. The vibes got better but the slip joint got more wore out and I couldn't drive it on the road after a while.

Got the new driveshaft installed tonight and swapped out the stock pitman arm for the dropped. The TW is awesome. I can't even tell it's installed at highway speeds. Very impressive.

I also bought something that I didn't really need but wanted anyway. Huh, that sounds like my jeep.

Since I'm throwing out random crap on my build thread...

I was at my fiance's apartment in Knoxville Friday night and woke up to some yelling around midnight in the apartment above us. I ended up dosing back to sleep. The next morning I took the dog out and saw this.









I saw another guy getting out of his car and he said he heard a guy begging to come back inside last night. Now he knew why. Some things you can't see in the bushes: Uns-moked cigs, leather belt and an un-opend pack of pistachios (I took those).

Well I made it back from Choccolocco Mountain in Jacksonville, AL. It was a fun trip and I definitely wouldn't mind going back. Here's a couple pics but more will follow. I had some pretty good carnage. Busted windshield, dented the front pass. side where my radio antennae use to be. I also lost a bolt on my lower shock mount coming down the interstate at 70 mph. The new front driveshaft worked great, no vibes at all. I also got to use my rebuilt Warn M8000. It worked flawlessly.



I busted the windshield after I got stuck and lodged between a fallen, rotting tree stump. My buddy tugged me backwards and I took a root with me.

I was at the top of these rocks and then snagged a root. I found out it was a pretty big root.

My buddy in his CJ-7 got to test out his new steering and built wide track D30 and Scout D44 with the 4.88 gears and Aussie lockers. He also got to test the Warn M8274 he got. He was pleased. Somehow he ended up driving up this tree. If you look in the second pic you can see my antennae still in stuck in the tree.





He also got a little squirrelly going up a rutted hill climb and well...this happened. I was looking to see if he was OK and how I was going to get it on it's feet again.



I hooked up his M8274 and it pulled it right side up with no issue. A little oil and ether and we were heading back to camp for a break.

My other buddie's YJ. It's funny. I got all three of these guys into wheeling and jeeps and I've owned mine for 8 years and they have all had theirs just a couple and they have more built rigs than me. The funny thing is I usually go more places than they do!
