Talking Wreckin Crew 1 Outer Limits 0

This past weekend i went out to the hammers again and this time met up with some toyota guys.. guess they had some toyota event there.. so i was "that guy".. but there were only 4 extreme ones as they called them... so the 5 of us set out saturday morning at 10 am to do outer limits... that is one long and hard trail.. the hardest i have seen.. let a lone drive.. well me made it back to means lake bed at 10 pm.. all us pulled some cable at one point or another.. had one flop over.. broke a hi lift base plate.. i busted the centering pin on a front leaf, which moved the front axle which i busted the front u joint u bolts.. i got it back together and welded the u bolt to the yoke and u joint and it held.. luckily it was towards the end.. i did some flogging on the jeep this time.. i hit 5000 rpm's a few times.. smoked some tires.. and dragged my boat anchor rear axle over every rock out there.. but it did really well.. i do need some lower gears in my transfer case.. give me some better control.. but 99% of the time.. my right foot got the job done..

and i interduced them to the phrase.. "take the skirt off nancy!"...

on with the pics..

I bet 31's and a two Piece shafts AMC20 would do just fine.

Pat, you need some better gears for sure. The guy in that green truck sure makes it look easy, and a lot of it looks like gears for the job. I have to think that the manual transmission helps too.

ya jim.. all those guys were 200+:1 final gearing.. i knew i needed lower gears.. and this trail really brought that to light.. i didnt have the control they did and would slide off the rocks and what not.. i still did everything.. it just wasnt with the finesse of them..

I'd also wager that the guy in the green truck wasn't on his second outing with it. They may have had 200:1 but it didn't look like they were using more than about 100:1.

So you going to put a 4:1 kit in the T-case? What's the effective ratio of your transmission? I don't really understand them there automaticals.
