We are all itching to do something I think most of us have our rigs under construction for the time being. Missed us a couple weeks ago when a few of us went to Silver Lake.

Well this is certainly the BS thread. We pretty much talk about anything and everything on here.

Jake, if you need a hand this weekend, let me know. You obviously know what I charge for services, let's just try to keep the Dirty Bastard to a minimum.

Trackbar parts should be here tomorrow, were supposed to come in today. Going to get that situation sorted out, and rebuild all the flex joints in one shot. If I can get some professional help in on it, I may even try to get the HP30 going. But that's a big "if".
Professional help so far as...?

Fixed it. Then took it to the proving grounds. Didn't prove much except I need more tire, and lockers.


There's an axle under there somewhere. Lost that flare too. Time to finally trim I guess.


Super custom ghillie camo driveshaft lol

Well..... I am no painter.

I cut it too short on my last coat of paint. It got cold and dried too slow, then the dew got on it. Lost most of the gloss on the horizontal surfaces. Sucks, but it will do it's job, and that's preventing rust. The trailer doesn't fit in the garage, so I can't re do it until it gets warm again.

^^ Lesson learned friend.

I've never really got the art or science behind painting. I am going to paint my Jeep, and I learned a few things. No real damage done since it's just a trailer.

Ok, so here's something new:

I have a slow leak in one of the rear tires on my truck. Because I haul pretty close to the max rating on the truck, I keep the psi at max (80 psi) and monitor it carefully. I check it twice when on trips -- once when I leave, again on the trip home. I've noticed lately that it looses a couple pounds over the course of a weekend. Didn't think a lot about it because temperature swings can drop a few pounds.

I haven't gone anywhere in 2 weeks so I haven't checked the tires. Looking out my kitchen window, that rear tire looked low. I checked the pressure and it was down to 50. Pumped it back up and made an appointment at Discount. Took it in today expecting a tire to have a nail or something in it. No. I can't be that lucky. Turns out my rim is cracked (!!!!!) and leaking air.
