chile challenge build up/shopping spree

I just ordered my self one lock right locker for my front axle, two Kingpin rebuild kits, and inner axle seals. I just installed an ORD shackle flip and will be picking up some wheel bearings today as well. The Chile Challenge is the 25th through the 28th of February and i got myself on two moderate trails for the first 2 days and two hard trails for the second 2 days(rated easy, moderate, hard, extreme) I hope all of this stuff get here. by next friday so i can put it in saturday through monday and be good to go on tuesday. I will definately post pictures from the event.

Re: chile challenge build up/shopping spree

oh, and i have to move the front axle forward(thinking 1.5"-1.75") and install my shims in the front so i don't lose another driveshaft slip spline. I mean it literally, i lost the damn thing when a u-joint broke and am still wondering where it went 4 months later.

Re: chile challenge build up/shopping spree

Lol. Yeah I blew a joint a while back and one of the caps ended up about 30 feet away...

Sounds like your in the same position I am. Need the truck done for Weds for a trip to the hammers. Everything was goin great until I got my springs in and there the wrong ones.. So now I get to go to the hammers without my truck... Oh well, someday...
