Curious to know the story on how you did that? Grenaded is definitely appropriate for the pics you have posted. WOW
Just dropped the front tire into a big hole and didn't feel it. Sticky tires, and ridicules traction that day, and the weak 30 spline came out on the losing end. Should have my 35 splines here today to install.

This was the actual spot where i broke it. I should have been to the left with the drivers tires on the big rocks, to avoid the hole on the right side.

This is what the rocks look like close up. Crazy traction when dry, like soap stone when wet.

Did this a little while ago; went out and replace the old vinyl seats with some custom leather replacement covers I found online. Turned out pretty dang nice. Was able to keep the italian purse style and the next step is the back seat.

Thanks. They are VERY comfy and the genuine leather is so nice. The place I bought them from had a template that wasn't exact, but my upholstery guy was able to add some and adjust the cover to fit it well. What sucks is my insurance company gave me crap about insuring this as a collector b/c of the tears in the seat. Once I get her painted the pictures will be sent in with my middle finger. My biggest pain in the arse was finding a damn fold/tumble that was in OK condition.

Where did you find these? Would like to get some for mine

A site called 'lseat.com' I took the risk on the fronts and they turned out well enough to make me happy. Be sure to order 2-tone if you want the laredo/purse style. Little pricier, but not too bad when all is said and done.

Pulled the front driveshaft to check the carrier bearing a little better. Surprised at how well it has held up considering I just threw it together with parts laying around the garage, and a cheap tractor store bearing. No play yet, and everything looks good.

Other that the snapped outer axle, its been holding up well. Big trip planned for next weekend, that may change. 😉
The new tires are amazing, running things that i never could make before.

More messing with my hard doors. No dice with these. It must be the glass seal that's causing me problems. Over it
