Today I'm troubleshooting my misaligned steering wheel, a result of fun shenanigans at Walker Valley ORV park in Washington yesterday. These are the most challenging trails I've had the WK (or any IFS/unibody vehicle) on. Overall verdict: Soooo easy. Picking a line and staying away from the many obstacles threatening the body and undercarriage were challenging, but the WK climbed everything I pointed it at. For a minute, I had a high-trans-temp warning, but it quickly went away. The quadra-drive II always came on just right to get me going. There was lots of tire rub, but I had rolled the fenders a bit, so there was no fender damage. There was a lot of noise as I drove up steep hills while turning, and I feel like it wasn't all tires. Loud clunking noises only while turning, and only in 4-low. I'm assuming everything is fine. I crashed into all the things both in forward and reverse and even slid into a tree on the right side very hard, but amazingly didn't pick up any damage there. I also dragged the undercarriage pretty hard and gave one of the plastic rocker things a workout.
The only damage is the uncentered steering wheel, which I suspect is the rack sliding in the mounts or something else, as the handling on the freeway is still excellent. I can't see any marks or damage on the tie rods or anything else down there. I'll diagnose it soon.
I don't think Walker Valley is for me. I miss mud, sand, water crossings, etc., and this place is just too rock-crawley and body-denty for my novice ***.
