Well Harlan was badass. Definitely cant wait to go back.
Day before were supposed to leave the Explorer starts f'ing up. Went to go get lunch that day at work and it would just click when you try to start it. Dern oh well. When I left to go home started fine. Got home and started messing with it and it would spin over and slowly die like the batter was weak. Went and had it replaced and same thing.
Then got to messing with it some more and if it was cold it would start fine. Soon as it warm up a little it would just quit and click.
Took the starter off and put another one I had on it and same thing. Though maybe they were both screwed up so I took one and got it tested and it tested fine. So came home and made a new cable from the battery to the starter and same thing yet again.
So as a last ditch effort went and bought a brand new starter and what do you know. Same thing yet again. Spin over good cold and soon as it warms up it would quit.
Last thing I could think of was ground cable and sure enough that was it. Ground cable from block to frame was almost corroded in 2. Made up a temporary one real fast and spins over likes it never spun over before. lol Finally got it right around 12am thursday night and we were leaving 5am friday morning so loaded everything up and got ready to go.
Didnt get many pics but got a couple vids. Was having a blast riding the trails. They have tons of trails. We rode like 80 miles and only rode the trails leading to and from camp more then once.
Only carnage from the weekend was a cut tire and burnt a hole in the air locker line. Thats probably my best weekend yet and I beat on it pretty good trying out the new from axles.
The axles are niiiiice by the way. Turn it to full lock and just let it eat and there as smooth as butter.
Cant wait to go back and ride the trails again. It was well worth the ride.
Oh yea. On my way home from work monday I hit the brakes and head and big clunk and was like uh oh. Got out and somehow this happened. Dont know if a rock hit it from wheeling or what but it broke clean off. Atleast I know the welds were good. lol
