Besides the Flex-a-lite fan controller that took a crap, and the bent Dana 30 from the dune launch, I think that was it.

Broke a motor mount on the bypass to this. The bypass was rated as a 4+ out of 5. This was 2011.

Thanks MoC. I don't recall seeing that one, but I've not seen them all. My Brother-In-Law is on the south side of Baton Rouge, so not the same location. Most of the PW owners post over on that forum, it's likly he's there, just not seen his truck pictured. Thanks for posting it.

It was a full morning cutting wood. We cut 2 8'+ Pieces and winched them out of the gully. As close as I can figure each weighed at least 1,500 pounds. I had to double line the winch coming up the approx 40° incline. The receiver of the logs will have a Sawyer come and cut them into planks for drying .

Man this fresh cut Red Oak smells good.

My friend took my picture while I was cutting. The ravine to my left was a 9' drop, wasn't enough room to stand on the other side of the saw.

Time to play what's its worth.

http://peoria.craigslist.org/cto/3611659128.html
No title
Only 3 of the Jackman rims.

image-4107196547.jpg

Can't tell if it actually is a 360 , even though it has the badgeing, sitting to low to get underneath.
Missing the drivers rear axle shaft.
Missing one of these.

image-2711195103.jpg

Has both of these.

image-1585341541.jpg

Interior.


image-1933355250.jpg



image-389346459.jpg

Engine.


image-4026482568.jpg

This is interesting. A GM style dizzy cap, see the little trap door.

image-1413812986.jpg

Frame and body not bad, mostly surface rust, the truck has a Arkansas license plate, last registered in '97.
Dana 44 axles front and rear , I believe full width, front is a closed knuckle .

Some exterior pictures.

image-2177538504.jpg



image-1776675706.jpg



image-575309982.jpg

Not a 4 speed, it 3 speed, and it shows 86,xxx miles.

If you didn't look at the add, asking price is $700. No title.

If your not familiar with Jackman rims, look at the picture again, notice there isn't any web between the spoke and outer rim , the spoke is welded directly to the outer. These are 15x10.

I forgot to add I re-broke the Q-trac jeep today. If you remember , after the dune trip and the bent Dana 30 the steering arm on the drivers knuckle broke off. I did a quick weld job to get it off the trailer and be able to move it around the house, that's what broke. I was attempting to pull one of the logs in 4wd, oops.
On the plus side, both my friends said the 360 sounded Bad A$$.

I forgot a couple things on the log retriv.

I did need to strap the CJ down from the rear to keep the Jeep from pulling down the hill. I used the Rubicon. There was a injury as well,

image-3162910689.jpg

Only a splinter you say, it went in at a angle. A little work with a razor blade, dental pick and tweezers got that sucker out.
