well today I did a routine check before i took my truck through the mud. Everything was fine, so off we went. I know t fact that I was in a 44 ich Bronco's ruts, and about 2 feet of mud didn't help, but, when I got out of the mud, my Thornbirds (a disgrace to Interco) were so glopped with mud it was pitiful. But I must admit, when they cleaned theirselves about 3 feet in water, They grabbed the snot out of those rocks in he river bed. So they aren't that bad. I went to the car wash, got a quick spray down, then really went at the under side. Still a little brown under there but now the drivetrain is visible. I went with my friends Bronco, a Jeep Scrambler, and my brother in my 85 Toyota straight axle. Nne of us got seriously stuck, except for, of course, the 4 cylinder 'Yota. I guess a huge rut isn't good for a small toy. It slid into this 3 ½ - 4 foot deep rut on the left side, putting a huge dent in the door, back cab, and bottom of front fender. BUT THE GOOD THING about a toyota is a rubber mallet takes out any dent. Also, I read today, that a Corporate 14 bolt is stronger than a Dana 60. w0w i am shocked seriously. AND before i forget, does anyone know how to find the pinion angle?
what tools would i use?
