Carlos, thanks for posting the movies, that's sweet!

Allison and I had a blast. The group was capable and experienced which was great. It was nice seeing all of you guys out Tom, sorry you had such a tough time..

Thanks for spotting me over the rock pile Dave, that was a blast. I was really doubtful that the 60 could make it over that line, but it did. you've got that one figured out.

Had a great opportunity to see where I need to work on the 60 to make those tires fit better.

Anyways, it was a fun trail, lots of challenges that were as hard as you wanted to make 'em. Thanks Scott for setting it up and having us along, we enjoyed it!

Included is a shot of Mark. He made it look easy all day.

-Marco

Did you break one or did you have to steal it to fix Tom's junk?

Could very likely have been the beginning of the end.

Mr. RockRunner please notice that stud is one of those super neat ARP units from TG. So lets see............hhmm.........

ARP knuckle stud-$10 check
Stud nut-$1.75 check
Wave washer-.60 check
Cone washer-$3 check

seeing Tom be the roll-over queen instead of me and now he owes me parts-PRICELESS!

Nice pics and trip report.

Tom, what on earth happened? I don't see anything that you would have climbed up to tip you over on? Did the runner just get sleepy and fall over for a nap?

OK so I had some rough spots on the trail, still had fun but came home a little bummed out.
I would like to thank everyone for all their help and patience while I was trying to blow up my truck and then sort of fix it.

First person I need to thank is Mark, he had my truck upright in about 10 minutes. If we would not have called on the radio nobody would have known

Second are Steve and Michelle, Steve had to drive the Gecko back to Randy's house instead of using the trailer, not a fun drive and I know first hand.

Third Person is Ige, she towed me out just in case. We did not want to put to much pressure on the front end and thought this could help. We made it down OK.

Last was my wife who just looked at it and said " well that is why you build it and build the cage" Not bad having a wive who understands

So now some of my pictures

My new axles I will be getting next week. I went online last night just to see what was new and found these for sale...................lucky me

Here is the desciption of the parts.

Diamond Front Axle Housing- 69" WMS, big fill, knuckle gussets, and custom shafts-

Diamond rear axle housing- 68.25" WMS, big fill, full float, and custom shafts-

Both are 30 spline

Brakes are slotted and drilled.

Guess I am going full size
