    It was a good day. This was by far the most costly trip I have ever been a part of. Everything I own with a license plate took a hit this weekend. On saturday, i blew my driveshaft and a front axleshaft or hub. Today on the drive home a fire truck wiped out the drivers side mirror on my truck which i pulled over on the shoulder for. I am pretty sure being on the shoulder of 495 caused me to get a flat tire on the trailer a couple miles down the road.

    Just getting home now at about 445 when we left shortly after noon, awesome. I am fairly confident that I took everyone elses fair share of crippling damage and problems this trip minus a pitman arm. I tell you what though, I sure am looking forward to the pictures off of Jeremy's camera!

    Damn got the tow rig and the trailer too. Yeah, heck of a weekend for ya. But your smile majority of the weekend told different. Setup on on your rig worked great, other than the shaft issues.

    My damages waren't as extensive. After got home assessed better. Pass front the rear spring hanger, isn't even attached to the frame, must have been sliding all day Sunday (explains why I couldn't figure out the extra rub marks inside the fender lol). Driver hub blown, which we already knew from Sat, and spit out the driver rear shim. Easy fixes and I'll be back on trail the 16th again.

    Still a great weekend. Had a black with everyone.

    yeah, shit happens. I am super happy with my setup, I think I have found the one I am going to stick with. Now I am going to start collecting spare parts. since all 4 springs are the same I figure Ill buy a spare, and spare drive/axle shafts and a spare hub or 2. I already have spare u-bolts and plates, and drag link.

    I started tearing down my original stock leafs yesterday and will build a little bit better bastard pack probably adding a couple more leafs to decrease the axle wrap. Just need the rear to last every weekend till Dec.

    PM me your address and I'll drop those shock extenders in the mail.

    I had a blast, think I figured out the front clicking, crunching sounds, think its the tie rod ends from the aftermarket tie rod I have, gonna put stock on it again to test theory and then get new ends, if so new ends run me about 60 bucks, found a lead on a tire for 25 bucks to use as a spare have to see what it looks like. they guy has 2 35 BFG ATs, 1/3 tread or so. Sorry had to cut out around 1500. My few picks are at https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/1...60912433056145, yell if the link doesn't work.

    That spring hanger just gave you more droop.....
    i have a power steering leak which was giving me issues on trail Saturday, and dirt in carburetor.
