Different school? Or summer trip or something?

Work in Houston for the summer. Need to make money to play with the toys.

Power steering exploded while turning into a parking space this afternoon.

Felt a pop and then saw a small geyser shooting out front.

Trying to find a shop here to have AAA tow it to.

Apparently no one in the NW Houston area wants my money so I had it towed to my apartment and tore into myself.

The culprit


First time on a flatbed, as far as I know


Forgot the pitman puller and hitched a ride to Autozone


High pressure line


Finished yanking the box which will be shipped to PSC for a rebuild in the morning. Ever since I installed the system it's been a little sloppy so I might as well have it serviced while it's out.

So I ended up not sending the box to PSC because they wouldn't have had enough time to work on it and get it shipped back here for my trip this weekend. I had a really hard time finding the hydraulic hose for field serviceable fittings so I just ended up paying NAPA to make a whole new hose for me.

It looks like I've finally taken the Jeep off daily driver duty...

I was finally able to make it to Jeep Beach this year. It was a ton of fun and I wish I had been able to make it in years past.


The TJ absolutely ate up all the obstacles, including the "wall." The rock garden was a little tricky and put a few marks on the undercarriage.
On the rightmost rock garden the exit was a 18" pillar which got my front LCA mounts the first time and the driveshaft the second time.
It put a good sized dent in the driveshaft. I was able to keep playing that day but had to tie it up for the trip back home because it gave me a pretty good vibration above 40.

Here's a video of said driveshaft damage:

In the next couple of days I'll be able to throw together some video clips I took.

Thanks! And yes, sadly, for sale. I don't have nearly as much time these days as I used to. This is definitely not the end of Jeeping for me though. I see another one some time in the future...

Cool shot! Were you the one that I talked to on the obstacle course?

Here's a few I pulled from my GoPro:






I'm still in need of a front driveshaft so let me know if you have a line on anyone that needs to get rid of a stocker.

Oh yeah, so this thing is officially up for sale (for real this time ). Shoot me an offer if you're interested. It's in Houston.
