WIth the length of cable I have spooled onto the drum I probably have 2 more breaks left before needing more cable. I also paid more attention to how long I need to spool it out after using it so as to not give it to much slack.

Yep getting out to check is kind of a pain in the butt. I wish there was a way to know how much I need to let out from the cab.

At least a short synthetic line will solve the problem of being able to put the line back on nicely. 50' of cable is too much, haha.

How about a proximity sensor?

Na, just need to not spool it out so far. No electronic aid needed. A timed momentary switch would be cool though.

Knocked out a couple more little projects today.... engine bay detailed out a little more than I did the other day, repainted cage (just the scratched areas), fixed up a buggered weld that was bothering me, fixed the suck down, and made a trip to tractor supply for some 6.5 ton clevises for the rear bumper. Got the swanky black ones with the gold pin.

I think the longer it takes me to get the tank the cleaner and more dialed in this Jeep will be. Haha. I know it's a waste of time but I'd LOVE to pull the seats out and really clean up the interior (again).

That has been my issue with the suckdown winch, to A let it out enough after sucking it in. I snapped mine trying to power up some dirt hill and when I backed out of it ti bounced and snapped the cable, has had clamps on it ever since works quite well and easy to fix on the trail. I still prefer a center strap though, simple and reliable.
By the way, when are you coming to my house? I need to have 2 Jeeps cleaned, painted and detailed.
On a more serious note, pretty much looks like I will be in your neck of the woods for some wheelin next week.
Going to do the better part of the Dusy both ways and Swamplake and maybe some other stuff if we are in the mood.
On the way home I am thinking about hitting up the Hollister OHV area.

What days you gonna be around Art? And Hollister is quite a way north still... and really not all that great IMO, compared to what you'll be doing over here.

Most likely head out early Tuesday, hit Ershim lake Campground Tuesday night, then back to the trailer and on to Swamplake.
Any other worthwhile trails in the Shaverlake area? Will have to see what I do after, Pismo has been a long time ago also

Man it sucks that my rig is down! You should also do Red Lake and Coyote Lake trail, they are connected and fun.

Nate's right, Hollister is a bit of a drive north, and after hitting the spots you mentioned, Hollister would be a disappointment.

We did the Dusy 3 years ago and the part after ershim lake was the most fun, wanted to turn around so bad and run that part the other way, just for the heck of it. Guess we are making good on that finally

Sorry posting pictures and staring at it are all I have right now! I'm guaranteeing I'll be wheeling by October 6th. But if a good Labor day sale pops up..... I'm prepared to jump on it. I'm really hoping for a good sale! Cheapest i've been quoted on the tank is $874 shipped.
