That was pretty awesome to see in person

Terry's already stuffed some cromos and outboarded back there...I just need to install his currie steering for him and he'll be 'back' in business Now you know why I never get **** done on my own pile. Sorry to be off topic.

Thanks man. Nothing too crazy but it has been a good learning process. The Krawlers are over 20lbs per tire heavier than the KM1s. figured it was going to test things.

Glad to see hes upgrading. Tell him to run RCVs up front if he isnt already.

I run the Rock Krawler steering now and like it a lot. It can support the weight of the Jeep on the TR.

The Teraflex Knuckle will allow me to use my main winch as a suckdown and eliminate the binding between the TR and DL when flexed at full lock.

What I have now:



What it will look like:

Ya he's got RCV's already...otherwise I think he would have blown up a front shaft too The whole situation still makes me laugh pretty hard.

Nice! Suckdown winches are awesome, I love mine. I use a secondary ATV winch instead of my main winch though.

I'm hoping it will help on some of the ledges here.

On a side note, my Tom Woods DS is totally seized at the spines. Not really sure what to do now. I have been soaking it in PB Blaster for the last 3 days. My measurements say the DS will work with the HP 30, but this sucks. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
