Got the camper on, Jeep loaded and am leaving ~10:00 A.M. tomorrow, see you there. Darn 3 hour drive, don't know if I'll make it

Come to think of it the way my tow rig has been acting I might not.

then we did strike ravine. not much to say or show haha... except



DURAMAX H1!


Now for the fun stuff... Golden spike, my favorite trail!











oh so much fun! however, my transfercase started making alot of grinding noises... seems like its about done. ive known its been a timebomb, but shes held up a year for me, so i cannot complain...

so one of the guys on the spike had just pulled his 241or outta his rubi (to put in an atlas, he had a 6.1, d60s, 37s, etc ) so i bought it from him!

I believe I can not read your build anymore because you post to many awsome pictures and it makes me want to move to Colorado... looks like tons of fun, and that a score on that transfercase, the rubi's came with a 4:1 so even better! Keep up the awsome build! Whats next on the list???

Thank you sir! I love it here!

I am doing some research on the tcase now. and i have found:

its a direct bolt up

these cases are what they put in their one ton trucks

it doesnt have a speedo connection (they use wheel sensors in jks apparently)


not sure what im gunna do next, currently trying to make this work

Thanks guys! im glad you like it!

So i had picked up that JK rubi case, and wont be able to make the speedo work without retro fitting the tailshaft to a TJ rubi style.

And since i just rolled a jeep, i dont have any more money to put towards this. So its on CL now

Im really bummed, i was excited to get this case in. from what ive read, its BURL!

Luckily i had an extra tcase (my spare) so i will throw a sye in her and be good to go!
