We're up here all weekend, as long as things go well, we probably could have found you an extra seat in one of the Jeeps.

Nice. Glad to see that it's ready. Now post up some trail pictures.

Well I finally got some pictures from Rausch Creek, we have over 1000. Unfortunately I am now in the process of pulling the t-cases as I couldn't get the front output to go into gear, it would partially engage but wouldn't stay engaged as if it couldn't get past the detent ball on the rod. I ended up running the weekend in rear wheel drive, so I had to skip some of the more extreme trails, but I rode with my buddies or walked along as a spotter. Did have a chance to see how the 4:1 worked and how the rear suspension behaved. It's amazing what you can still go through with a locked rear axle.
A little poser shot to check for any issues before the start of the day, the front is fully articulated but I still have 2-3 inches of travel left in the rear, most likely due to the rear antirock and no front sway bar.

The first obstacle were I realized I wasn't getting the front to engage.

Continuing on

Yeah, it's too bad but we had a good time anyway. Next time I'll be up and running, we've already looked at some other trails we want to try then.

Well I discovered three things last night. First why the front output wouldn't shift on the 300, the set screw that I used to plug the hole for the 4WD switch was set a little too deep and the indent on the shift rod for the switch was hitting it when I tryed to shift :banghead:. Secondly, that the stainless rod I had made doesn't have enough surface hardness and was wearing (already) where the detent balls run over it. I talked to a couple of buddies in heat treating and after I widen the machining for the 4wd switch and clean up the ball marks I'll have them surface harden the rod. So other than having to take everything apart again, the fixes should be fairly easy and I'll be ready to go wheeling again soon.
Thirdly, I learned that standing working on Jeep parts in a warm garage makes me queasy after donating blood and hour earlier, oh well good excuse to lay on the couch the rest of the evening.

Haha. Good to know what the fixes are.... now you just have to break it down and do the work. And the time spent in the garage makes you appreciate the time spent on the couch even more.

Minus the labor to pull the case its a nice easy fix , but I would suggest letting your blood fill back up before you get back to wrenching

Yeah, got the blood back. Fine tuned the shaft so I don't have any more issues and I'll take it in to the heat treaters Monday. I've got everything else ready to go, so just assembly left once the shafts done. Hope to be driving by the end of next week.

Well everthing go put back together last week and went and ran some trails near Peterborough. It was nice to have 4wd again, especially with all the rain so far this year, but climbing a wall of mud isn't really any easier, oh well that's what winches are for. Had a great time with some other wheelers and didn't break anything, and with all the rain the Jeep isn't even that dirty.

Yep, worked out really good. I'll try and post pics tonight, but we got home, unloaded and the place looks like a tornado went through it right now, so need to clean up and then go through everything.
