We went wheeling...the end.











OK, it ended up being a little more involved than that, I'll try to be brief...
Myself, Uriel, and Loren met up Friday evening to do a little "pre-run night-run". We ended up running LT, UT, Judgement day, and then some other stuff that I can't tell you because I got completely lost and Uriel had to take over or we'd probably still be there!:D
We started on LT and I apologize because you apparently have to spend more than $250 on your digital camera to not take complete shiate night pics.
Elmo looks evil at night...

Then Loren decided to do a quick check for loose links, etc. on Z-rock...

We then headed to Judgement Day to play around on a few "optional lines". I have done this obstacle a few times before and it's always a little "tricky". Last year I rolled into the notch completely upside down and it was a very interesting recovery.

Things got a little interesting for Loren here, he almost rolled upside down into the notch, but was saved by the "softball sized" rock in the last pic here.

We then proceeded to UT and I finally got us lost...

Saturday morning the rest of the crew showed up and we went straight to CD. Before we got on the trail, Mike's power steering pump failed and he was unable to continue. Mike's (Heatstroke) locker wouldn't fully engage, so he backed off the trail and after a couple of adjustments, it was working great.

We then had a little more carnage when a rear spring pack decided to come apart. Jethro fab #1 involved one large clevis hook and some duct tape.:eek: A few chains were then required to keep a driveshaft from pulling apart.:eek:

Mike's (Heatsroke) pitman arm promptly snapped in half on the first big waterfall. He put on his (actually Eric's:D ) spare and beat the holy shiate out of his rig trying to get to the top. (Uriel was spotting if that helps you visualize the level of abuse!:flipoff1: ) At the top, Mike said he couldn't turn left. Upon inspection, the second pitman arm was bent. We then took the bypass since there were a few places where left turns were required.:D Jethro fab #2, sitting in the riverbed contemplating how to get Mike's rig home with a bent pitman arm. I jokingly mention that I wish we had a cordless sawzall. Rick goes to his truck and hands me one!:eek: I "respline" the pitman arm so we can rotate it and Mike drives it all the way to Chandler very slowly! We then all met back up and ran LT again with no more breakage! I know that one more roll happened while I was away with Mike and hopefully someone has some pics and a story of that (Uriel?).

We were wondering what the hell happened to you! Uriel tried to call but couldn't get you. You could tell I was concerned on the second roll because I actually hooked up the strap before taking pics!:D :eek:

No, it's the big notch at the very end. I've never actually seen anyone else do it, though I'm sure it has been done numberous times. Uriel went right up as well (mmmm stickies!) and I really thought Loren was too, until he decided to lay down and take a nap!

Pump is hosed. Pulley is firmly fixed to the input shaft, when turned by hand it makes some weird noises, not typical of a PS pump... We'll see what PSC says about it when they get it back.

Because you didn't fail as bad as my junk did. :D

Still waiting on new pitmans. Gonna move the box forward, sleeve frame, and add the hydro assist. It should go pretty quickly once I get the pitman arm to use as a reference. Then I can get another made from ubernasatoiletonium and be good to go. I for sure want to be ready to get some by 4th of July Weekend because I don't want the truck to forget it owes me.

With the hyrdo you could step down on the ultranasatoilonium. Won't see anywhere near the stress it does now.

Probably true, but this time I'm gonna go with with something a bit stronger than the stock bend like play-dough jeep version (which is what broke & bent). I'll keep my extra as a last chance emergency only if I need to spare.

Nice! I was going through your videos of the WT trip and watched the video of Grumpy bailing on me in the middle of the falls at Oreo! All tha shit fell out of the truck and rolled down the falls. I laughed my ass off when Mike said "The Copilot is not supposed to bail in the middle of the obsticle!" Grumpy says, "I'm not bailing." as he walks away:lmao: :lmao:

I couldn't back that far up, the tail end of the skewl bus was diggn in. After seeing some of the pics/vids, I think the bus needed to take a different route. We'll see next time.

You can give him pointers on how to build his own cattle guard for the front of the buggy and drop the ride height down 4-5 inches at the same time! :D
