Slaughterhouse May 9th

Thanks again to everyone who could come!

I hope you all had fun and only left the trail with minor bumps and bruses!

I had a blast! Out of all the runs I've done so far this year this one has been the best!

Anyway, post those pics if you got 'em!

I hope to see you guys on the next run!

I had a great time. The group and trail was great. It's a nice trail. There are easier and harder lines thru all of the obstacals. I took some pictures that I'll get up tomorrow.

Thank Yanman.

P.S. I'm not a poser!

Man I know I am a newbie but isn't that first pic right above your post a nice pose? I sure think it is!
I'll post some pics tomorrow also, no idea if they are good or not.

Wow, nice turnout! I count 10 trucks in that pic.

Can't wait to see everyone pics. Anything to report, or just a nice clean run?

My mudflaps took a beating! But nothing broke, that I know of. I scraped up the right side of my truck, meh. Those stupid mudflaps need to go tho. I kept hoping a rock would solve the problem for me It was a great run tho, I didn't take any pics but if anyone needs me to host 'em I'm fine with that. I'd imagine most of you guys have some sort of an image hosting acct tho. Anybody get my front skid digging into the whoops? I think Gerdo got a good shot... I wanna see 'em all! Thanks YanMan for "organizing" the meet :P

I thought there were 11 rigs. Great job putting this together YanMan. If troy hasn;t left for Hungary today I am sure we would have been there! Can't wait to see more pics for sure!

So I assume Slaughterhouse gate was open?

Well I know I left with some more rock rash on my skids and sliders, TacoBlanca97 got up close and personal with a tree, and as Arrrghhh said he worked those mudflaps.

Anyone else have any damage reports?

Glad everyone had fun!

It was my pleasure setting it up, and I'm glad it went well.

If someone doesn't beat me to it I'll see about setting up another stocker run next month!

And there will be a good chance that I'll be taking my '88 out on its maiden voyage.

Don't forget to save some dough for some armor too.

I would get armor before getting a locker, but thats just my .

Blanca has a nice imprint of his grill guard in his fender around the corner light from his encounter with the tree. And I found out that the way the OME leaf springs flex is causing the tire to grab the front of the rear flare and starting to rip some of it at the bottom. Need to figure out how to fix that. And it's probably going to be worse if/when I put the 285's on. Hopefully the FJ80 rims will help with that with the backspacing.

And I'll try and get the few photos I took up here in the next few days.

It's not just the OME (Dakar) springs, mine do that as well. It's just how they flex. The tire grabs those trim screws and pulls them down/out, which makes the top forward portion of the rear fender bend into the wheel well. I plan on moving to flush mount trim screws (based on suggestion from Ike) that will help a little.

If you want to go to larger tires, get ready to

EDIT: wait a sec, does this actually mean you went on a run? any photographic evidence? you know you'll need it when this year's lame duck award nominees are announced.

May want to get a refund on that eye surgery Doug, second truck in the third pic posted up towards the top.

And its not grabbing screws, it grabbing the plastic of the fender flare. And I did have a bit of that happening with the stock leaf springs with the AAL, just now the OME's are making it worse.

Oh, and you still want those smoking chips?

Eyes are working fine, just haven't seen your truck on dirt in so long I didn't recognize it.

The dakars make it a bit worse at the front of the wheel well because they move the axle forward a bit from stock. some minor plastic/sheetmetal trimming along with possibly longer bumpstops will fix it. though you already did the stops. mine still flex up to hit the top inside of the fender with the 255's. i am just going to go to flat screws to stop it from eating away at my tires.

I remember reading somewhere about shims or plates to relocate the axle back a bit. That may help fix what the OME's do with moving the axle forward.

Yup, but in the stock location the tires rub both the back and the front at my size, so i figured i would only trim one side.

Funny how actually wheeling shows you these problems that were already there, and everybody else with the same suspension has had since OME started business.


Looks like a fun run, but slaughterhouse just isn't for me! Hope to see some of you out on the trails this summer!

It was there before with the stock springs when I was out on the trails, the OME just made it worse. I love the flex compared to stock springs with the AAL, just wish it wasn't ripping the flares like it is.

Yeah, I'm torn between staying with 265's or jumping up to 285's this time. The 285's will probably be fine in the front with the FJ80 rims, but the rear is the issue. And may have to do a little trimming back there and probably a 1" bodylift for a bit more space.
