Katemcy Rocks

MOAR pics!!
http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v7...e4500/katemcy/


Closing weekend!
Amazing.. best wheelin trip to date.

I left my tires at 25psi and hardly slipped the tires, they only slipped if they were wet, but they still hooked up like a ****!

My carnage:
-tweaked the hell out of the trans cross member
-another warn.. i think it was full of **** from the lake still
-broke the steering intermediate shaft under the dash-- FACTORY PART..twice, horrible ****ing design.
-stripped out the threads on the ball joint part of the one ton TRE on the pitman arm
-both axles are leaking like sives
-diff cover and d44 took a custom shaving..
-had to replace the rear u-joint cause it was mad tickin, no grease, I blame that on the trip to the lake.
-clutch is on its final leg

lessons learned. granite is some nasty ****, square DS ate some rock , high pinion axles are the **** when your high centerd on a big pile of rocks, i STILL need a rear locker or spool. I even let the right foot have some fun and didn't break a shaft.

I need a clutch, roasted the **** out of it in one hole, need a hydraulic ram, need a p/s cooler, need a cage, and NEED a rear locker.

The front spool wasnt THAT bad on the rocks, i thought i was gonna have to unlock hubs to turn, but for the most part I just left them locked in.


here's some pics, the guy who took a ton of my truck won't have them uploaded for a while.

one of the few times I almost flopped.. I thought FOR SURE it was going over, that pass. tire was all of about 2" away from that rock before the truck came back and settled down

Looks like a lot of fun. I'd hate to have that much damage when I wheel. I guess it's all in what you like to do and can afford to fix.
