    I ended up picking up an axle from one of the Seattle members around 2am this morning... We had him rolling but I forgot to put the center pin back in to hold the gov lock and other axleshaft together while they were towing his truck off the trail (log chained to frame/under axle skid fashion) while I ran to get the new axle and that kinda left him driving home with front wheel drive only. We all made it back to camp around 7am and got some sleep. I'm just not sure what time they were going to head out. I left earlier heading the other direction.

    Hey, sorry I all of a sudden disappeared on you guys when you called my cell, but the battery died and I hurried home hoping you'd call my home phone.

    Glad to hear you got everything fixed tho /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yepp, like Rick said, made it home, was a long drive. My truck shakes like crazy at about 50-60mph, way worse than anything it has done before...and its not the u-joints. Anyways, it was quite an adventure...how many people can say they have seen sunrise at the funny rocks /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I made the drive three times that day from camp to the funny rocks, don't think I'll ever forget the way now /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    2 summers ago I broke both my front and rear driveshafts up at the rocks and got towed all the way out on a strap... that was fun... No control of speed or much in direction when the strap wraps around a tree, brakes were on fire twice, I almost died once... damn trips to the rocks are fun!!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
