Wtf norcal? Anyone wheeling these days? Headed to the rubicon in 3 weeks and moon rocks the weekend after if anyone wants to join. If Photobucket wasn't so dumb I would post pics from Sierra trek. Had a good time, the 40 inch stickies are bad ass

Not much of any here. It's fire season for me and I don't have the time or motivation because of the summer heat to work on my rig. I'm in the middle of installing efi in my rig. Plus a couple other upgrades and gonna go 1 ton sooner than later.

So my atlas came in. The guy that shipped it was super cool and got it to me fast. However, he didn't drain the case. I had 2 quarts of gear oil all over the place... What a damn mess, and the breather tube fitting broke off. Other than that I'm super pumped. Hopefully I can get it on there in the next few weeks! Time to mash some rocks!

Also going to the new ruff stuff high steer arms I found out that the tie rod holes are off set, so I have to build a longer tie rod, and need high misallignment spacers cause the lock nuts rub the arms. All small stuff tho.

Also got a super ghetto and cheap car trailer so now I will be mobile.

Good to see someone is making progress! I'm off work with a bum hand. I had trigger finger surgery on my left thumb. So now I actually have time but can't work on my rig...
