Short trip to the Badlands

Went to the Badlands with my brother over the weekend. Just ran all the trails and messed around on some rock walls. Good times. Few pictures to share.













I tried to climb this, id guess its 25-30' up to the top. I got about 3/4s of the way and started bouncing trying to get my front tires to grab the next ledge....



Then this happened... Snapped a Dana 60 rear axle shaft, so that ended the day.



Few videos, Im not sure if they will work since they are on FB. You can add me if you have problems accessing it.

nah nothing else broke that i know of. I took it for a spin before i tore it down. I was easily running 70mph and it was pretty smooth and ran well.

The whole thing runs to hot. All day long the temps were..

ECT 230
EOT 220
Trans 210
Power Steering pump was whining and actually quit working several times. (lost pressure)

Its good enough to run for 30-40 minutes then i have to stop and let it cool. This winter hopefully I can fix all of that.

Those are all normal temps. I shut it down once water hit 250, or EOT 225

Damn, that's a little on the hot side. What is your fan setup? I'm surprised you haven't just put the radiator in the bed yet. Looks fun though!

climbing a rock wall. There was some other guy there that gave me his email. I need to email him and see if he will send some pictures of that rock wall.

Im not sure its just an efan but its about 1" from the block so air really cant travel that well. I bought the fan off ebay, fluiddynamics or something. Anyway I really didnt want to mount it back there but I really have no choice.

Put the fan in front of the rad and make it a pusher.

Looks like its going to the back....

Wouldn't be bad if you hack it back there and stuff it at a angle like a trophy truck.
