Went up to the cracks with some HCR guys and a few from the VJC to campout and scout some new lines for the 4th w/e.

A little warm but still 20° cooler than Phoenix.

Camp;

Right after this he started having fuel delivery issues, we took teh filter off and the pump out and couldn't get it to run right, so I towed him back to camp, he loaded up and talked to Brian and Rob and one of them suggested taking the foam out of the cell and they did that and got it running ling enough to do the north wall then we were gonna go back to the snake pit and it died again at the gatekeeper so he limped it back to teh trailer and loaded it up for the last time..

Here's why we call it "the cracks"

Earlier in the day a one of the guys broke a pitman arm and we had no spares so when we got back to camp for lunch, we borrowed one of the other Geep pitman arms and went back out to recover his Geep, got it back to camp, then he went to town for another PA, while he was gone, his rig was raped by those that were still there;

Don't count me out just yet!! I took today off and made some good progress. I have tow more solid days of fabbing, and then the rest of the week to wrap up the small things. The only concern I have is taking it all the way up there for its shakedown run. Might be a bad idea.

What's that? Also, I already broke my junk this weekend. Brand new driveshaft and ripped the end yoke at the t-case in half through the u-joint area:rolleyes: It had a total of 1 mile on it in dirt:rolleyes: The u-joint was still in perfect shape with the caps still on it attached to the front output yoke, pretty lame IMO. Gonna make another one and should be ready to go.
