Headin Down to Colorado Springs

Well after living and exploring Northern Colorado for the last 27 years Im heading down south to the Springs. Got a stock 91 x-tra cab that gets me around and am looking to meet some folks to go play in the outdoors with. Lookin for some people to climb, fish, backpack and of course wheel with. I start work on Janurary 7th. Will post a couple pics of the ride when I get home tonight. Also lookin to see if anybody knows any good rentals in the area... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to COTTORA. I can't really help you out with the rentals down in the springs, but I'm sure the guys and gals that do live down there will give you a hand.

Lots of good folks down there in the Springs.

depending on what you need done, alot of us have garages. Some have reaaaaaly nice garages, with lots of shiny tools and stuff that cuts and welds. (unfortunately, thats not me ). there are a few shops in the area, but be prepared to pay close to $100 per hour for labor at most. I just had some work done at preadtor 4wd on nevada, and was very happy with the work. I dealt with cody. im always up to do some wheeling ,as are most of the local members. Figure out a date and place, post it up, and most likely someone will be able to go out with you

Well I'm trying to troubleshoot a similar problem to this : http://www.yotatech.com/f116/rubbing...g-cold-245632/
Also some really bad "Squeeking" almost all the time, that sounds like it is coming from under the cab.... Definatly something I would like to do myself but this is my first yoda and am not the most mechanically inclined...

Cut off the IFS crap and stuff a solid axle under it, easy fix.

Get under there and spray any bushing with WD40 or similar magic sauce; could help narrow down the offending item.
