    Default CMJRM Carnage, Breakage, all out no luck.

    DSCN0149.JPGDSCN0148.JPG

    James (RollbarRequired) Pulled his Track Bar out on the first obstacle (Day 2). Nothing a half dozen Jeepers couldn't fix. At least he was up on the rocks and everyone could stand up while working on it. It made it nice and easy to fix. Bad thing was, that evening, a few did a night run, and it popped out once again on the way down on the last turn before came. Somehow he managed to get it back to camp with the track bar disconnected.

    I got home and noticed a nice oil leak in my driveway. There were even drops heading up to the spot. I wiped off the underside, but couldn't see where it was coming from. I pulled it into the garage, and after sitting over night, saw that there was a new spot. Looks like it's coming from somewhere in between the bell housing and oil pan. Looks like I'll be dropping it off at the dealership. Bummer.

    Of course you can't expect not to have some rock rash. My rear drive shaft got some nice twisty marks. I also used my belly skid to skid on some rocks. It works well. You can also see some oil spots on the belly skid and other parts under neath my jeep.

    My money is on the rear main seal. No major carnage this weekend for anyone from the sounds of it, at least nothing that wasn't easily fixed with hand tools and elbow grease.

    Got some major dents in my belly skid and some fresh rock rash on just about everything underneath. Got more rash on all four brand new wheels. Yay! Also, pulled a Ken and hit a tree when I slipped off a wet boulder.

    On a side note, I'm thoroughly impressed with the Goodyear MTR Kevlars. Traction was never a problem and rock chunks are at a minimum even with all the boulder fields we went through. 15 psi worked perfect.

    Yup, rear main and an axle seal went out with a few other things that need attention that I wouldn't have expected after purchase 2 months ago.

    I came out good with the duratracs too. No signs of any lug wear/tears. They handled awesome as well.

    Of course I have new starches underneath, but the only things that went bad was the lower steering bearing popping out and inverting shackles...

    My track bar bolt came loose( the upper one )giving me some wobble up front, and my steering wheel sits at 2 o'clock when going straight. Haven't gone through the whole thing yet, just parked it and unloaded and there it sits.

    Was talking to American Ride yesterday and he bent both his rear axle shafts.
