Well, Somehow my Exhaust Rotated enough to melt my Tail Light.. we Cut it off at camp with a sawzall, Then it proceeded to melt thru my spring bushings.. so we retrofitted the old piece back on at a different angle, and got new bushings at the Moab Outpost

My Truck keept blowing a Code 43 all week, Electronic Spark Controll.. Still haven't figured that one out. Ran like Crap, but did not hold me back

im kinda pissed off, i didint even scrape my new skid plate.. and no body damage to speak of

Edit: i almost forgot, on Poisin spider mesa i blew out the pitman arm seal on my PS box.. my Snap ring was jacked, i managed to get it back in, and get it back to town, got a new snap ring and pulled the pitman arm in the checker parking lot and replaced it!

The 80 performed flawlessly on the trail.
Sawzall will fix that tailpipe for you

Bummer Hants...I wondered what was up when you stopped on Main St. and said you were going to head to the wash 'cuz the fuse blew again, because your brake lights were still working at that point . This explains it . Next time we'll trouble shoot all the lights to make they work

My rusty old 40 did pretty well. I went pretty easy on it being a Moab noob and my carb loading up caused a lot of stalling so I avoided some steeps that I should have been able to climb otherwise. Time for a rebuild.

Damage: One busted exhuast hanger, malfunctioning CB, lost the bolt to my radiator overflow, and sprung a coolant leak from the thermo housing on the ride home.

Upgrades: I upgraded my gas cap to a nice greasy red shop rag after leaving it in the parking lot of the Canyonlands visitor center.

Drivers side LongField, front ring gear, rear Aisen Hub. I guess I was due! Hopefully I will get that loose nut behind the wheel fixed!

My year old Random Technology cat puked it's guts out on a Poison Spider warmup run. Does that count?

On Rice Cake? I thought you were wheeling your 80? If so, why are you running hubs on the rear?

Fixing the loose nut behing the wheel is improbable. I would bet against any long term repair on that one.
