Thanks again Randy for making your garage available to everyone!

That lift is a blessing for old backs...made the wheel bearing service a wiz...I already told Ricardo that I'll be down one day of the next session to help out where I can.

CM Wrenching Session #3 is in the books. Saturday's work consisted of replacing the ARB seal on Dr. Schlegs 80. Sunday was a bit busier as the Club Trailer got some axle work, Nattybummpo installed his ARB and switched to 4.11s, Old40Dog flushed more gunk out of his front diff, Clay replaced his diff fluids and Cheeseman pulled his transmission to find out his pilot bearing was the source of his noise.

A big thanks to everyone who came out.

Went down today with Sascha to stab that tranny/tcase back in. Had trouble getting the pilot bearing out. But determined minds prevailed. And all is well with the Runner. So now off to the Trail Training run in Moab.

Randy your genorosity with your garage is well appreciated. And Sascha and all who helped.......Thank you.

Rising Sun......gotta love it.

I ran Chinaman's yesterday with the colorado4x4.org crew and... my gears didn't break.

What? You were doubting your craftsmanship and new found talents?

Another day in the books; FJBrady's CB is tuned and OldTan40's FJ40 went from a ceased engine to one that made it home under its own power.
