Hop a bus or drive another car - meet us there and jump in my truck or any number of others and be a "winch bitch" for someone. it's worth it even that way.... Last year I showed up in a BMW station wagon. Ha ha.

I'm tracking down an odd vibration now that the 4.43 gears are installed. Rear driveshaft but everything "seems" fine and tight. Ugg.

Turns out the rear flange was f-ed up on the detroit/4.43 third member. Fixed. Good as new.

Also had a stuck t-case lock lever, typical mall crawler before last week so it was expected. Fixed.

Oil leaks *slowed down* and a rear wheel bearing replaced - of and a front brake job. DONE.

Truck runs balls out now... well as much as a 4.0L rover with big ass swampers will!

Headed out soon, an hour plus later than I wanted but given the rover gods and mr. murphy's law that seems normal, or actually pretty reasonable!

Doug

Seeing a series on tracks is better than hot girl on girl action.

Nice.

Snowing now - rain later maybe - should be a FUN day!!

John is here and present and a wild man. I rode the trails in front of or behind him all day yesterday... That truck is a monster!

Doug you did some nice driving.....we won't talk about the driveway Josh where the hell were you? I didn't see you once. Anthony you are welcome to jump into my air tight temperature controlled cabin anytime you like. Just be warned the rrc might seem Spartan by comparison. . Thanks again Bruce for the hospitality and the door latch!
