Drove the heck out of it. Gotta take advantage of the recent warm weather here in southwest Oklahoma.

Took it out on the trails south of Big Bear Lake. Got over 8500' and it ran good.

Well I thought the freeway was coming apart on the way to work.

Well I thought the freeway was coming apart on the way to work. Turns out it was my front right wheel coming off.... well not quite. Only a few inches of play (with the wheel on the ground) Emergency bearing replacement followed.

And while I had it in the air...why not remove the sway bar and the stock exhaust hangar from the removed 258 that had been serving no purpose for 10 years.

Thought about doing an oil change, but didn't. Replaced an air filter so I could destroy it.

Then with no sway bar, decided my shocks need to be longer, and since that is limiting, I had to do something that wasn't, so I put some mud on her and went home and read all about the next thing I would do. (I have a m8000) sitting in my bedroom closet.

It would be safer than hanging my camcorder on the warning light post...
