Couple pics of lower 2 over turkey day weekend

I figured I would post a couple of pictures of lower 2. It was really nasty this time around.

Looks like FUN ! Green that is one heck of a Jeep, it is great to see it out on the trails working. I think my fav part is the Keg tank. Well done!

Re: Couple pics of lower 2 over turkey day weekend

Thanks Olin the keg was a little bit of a headache though, or the sealer around it . I had to change feul filters a couple times because it hardened and then fell into the tank and clogged the filter.

Re: Couple pics of lower 2 over turkey day weekend

Rich the first day went well went up upper two and schoolbus and then down guard rail in the dark (don't ask wasn't my idea and I never want to do that again). Day two I broke the 1/2 ton to 1 ton adapter u-joint on the front of the t-case on a rut going up to slick rock (made it through the rut on momentum alone). Day three we decided to run lower two since it was short and close to the main road incase something broke. Well the front driveshaft broke and the left axleshaft at almost the same instant. Two pops a couple seconds apart. The driveshaft broke at the old tube it was sleeved and welded to lengthen it. I was pleased the weld didn't break. When I got it winched out I was looking and noticed the broke u-joint. First front axle shaft I have broke since I put that front end in about 97. It performed great and pretty much walked everything. I had one more fairly easy obstacle to go on upper two when she let loose. Here is a pic of the spot where I broke.

Steve, rig looks sweet! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] Also looks like a pretty good maiden voyage. I'm far from anything "hardcore" and I can't imagine doing that for a first run. NICE. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Couple pics of lower 2 over turkey day weekend

That grill has a story to it. Two of the guys I wheel with some of you guys have met (Larry and Bill) both owned this orange levi edition renegade CJ5. One of them bought it new. When it was bought it had these cheesy metal light guards on it (probably a dealer add on). I traded Bill for the jeep after it got so rusty that anything you put in the back or floorboard fell through. So the cheesy headlight guards are a kinda tradition. And they never broke a headlight so what the heck. Plus they help hold the headlight on cause I don't have bezels for them.
