Hi everyone! I've been lurking around but not saying much so I figured I better make a showing or I might get crossed off the cool kids list.

On a side note, if any of you has some time to kill and you haven't read through this thread yet, it's hilarious: http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/gener...n-tonight.html

Explains why it's been so quiet in here! ;-)

Btw, there's a list?

It can never be totally quiet in here as long as we have Marn, Sirhk, & Raptor If you ask me, that's a good thing.


List? I have no idea what you are talking about. You must be seeing things

Always good to get a shaft inspection. Assuming the right person is doing it of course ;-)

As for drive shafts, Khris was of course right about Dans being cheaper. They quoted me $575 for a rear F150 driveshaft, Adams $785. Both phone quotes.

I've worked with Adams on some work projects and have spent a pretty decent amount of money there between my jeep, explorer, Toyota, race truck, this F150, etc... They give me pretty damn good pricing and do great work and IMO are the best jeep knowledge guys in town for the most part. But... Ford 9" or average dude off the street looking for best pricing. I think typically Dan's beats them! At least that's been my experience...

Between Dan's and Adam's I will pick Dan's every time hands down. Too many friends have had really negative experiences at Adams. They are nice folks, but the quality control just isn't there

Agreed, somewhat. I had that issue when they did the axle shaft in the rango, but they made it right for me when I needed driveshafts for the TJ. I would go back to them for more work. Although, their SYE kit has had some issues with the speedo gear getting chewed up. I moused it for the time being and has been ok so far. Eventually I'll actually fix it.

I will say, I've had them install a detroit into a Ford 8.8, installed a ez locker and gears in a ford front D35, Built a driveshaft for my linked toyota, the race truck, this linked F150. I ran their SYE and rear driveshaft on my jeep, we've borrowed jeeps from them for work, ordered axle shafts for the 9" on my linked yota from them and off the top of my head, I think that's it. All from Adams... Not a single issue ever with any of that.

experience with Dans was setting up and gearing a couple 9" 3rd members. Great price, 100% problem free.

That's all 100% first hand experience with them and money spent at the places.

Is the trail and entrance to carpenter canyon marked and visible from the highway? The wife wants to find a cool place to picnic with water preferrably. I was thinking black canyon for the river, but I hear it's a technical trail. Not sure she would enjoy that right now. Suggestions?

Edit: cool as in temperate cool to avoid the heat.

Well, it's looking pretty legit. I think as of this point I'll be racing our truck at the Mint again next year. Jason's not sure on the rest of the season though. We're looking to try and get a clean run with the truck with me behind the wheels so we can at least see where we stand against the competition. Beyond that, I've been asked to ride shotgun in the jeepspeed again in races that we aren't campaigning our truck in. Will be fun to get back in that and hey, gives me more legitimacy for trolling around here beyond trinkets and wheeling! LOL They dyno'd the jeep... Just your average straight 6 jeep motor numbers to the rear wheels...







The new owner of the jeep has this thing looking so damn nice these days! So stoked for my friend who I used to ride with and originally drove it, he's still going to be behind the wheel of it next year and asked me to co-drive with him as much as possible...

Super bummer, man! Crank, connecting rods and at least one piston. What was the root cause? Valve escape?
