I can make movies too!

Yeah, quality sucks, and it's only a minute long, and nothing exciting, but hey, I'm n00b [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]. But hey you can see my truck moving!

Re: I can make movies too!

Well, I could have made it up at that hill if I had any kinda of speed at all but I stopped and then started going again and dug. It was all sand, that area used to all be under water, it's like a 100 foot square little sand dune area [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img].

Re: I can make movies too!

Yeah, it used to be really bad. Now there are no squeaks. I had a 1/2" bolt holding the front springs rear eye in the shackle when the whole was made for a 9/16". So the spring eye was rubbing on the shackle and squeaking things up a bit [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]. All fixed now [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: I can make movies too!

Wait until you get that front shaft in and get to experience the "hop". These long wheelbase trucks tend to jump a lot when the going gets tough. Go play on some small dunes that are a little more than your truck can take and it will happen. Gets really annoying.

Re: I can make movies too!

Cool, any details?

Any plans for the front while we're at it?

I'd call it a Land Yacht, but considering my parent's motorhome has that title, and it makes your truck look like an........ohhhhhh..........Geo Tracker, I won't.[img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
