Kevin, can't help you but glad your hanging out on our board. I enjoyed hanging with you the last two Moabs. I was only there for your first breakdown and glad we (We is Ige doing all the work while 10 guys watch - Except for the Jacking of the truck ) were able to get you down off the trail. Doubt Ige will listen to another one of Coberlies trail fixes, or it least not lie under the diff when squeezing the ziplock full of oil in.

Gee all you need to do is show up for a meeting and we could make you a member

Take care and that was a great thing you did bringing your nephew down. He is a great kid and was real well behaved when he rode with us.

Ken

Marlin gave away a couple of "ball gusset" kits. Were they to strengthen steering knuckles?

I am canabalizing a spare 60 front axle to give Ben back the one we borrowed. You might as well have the Passenger side from it!

Yes, you weld them up below the axle, where the axle tube and ball joint meet. I won a set, and one of the Cascade guys showed me how they're mounted on his mini truck, it makes a lot of sense. Only problem is you need to remove the inner axle seal before welding, so it could be a while before I get around to doing this.

Kevin, I'll parrot what Romer said as well, had a great time with you & Shane tell him I said hello next time you see him. You're always welcome in Colorado.. -tim
