    Lion\'s Back pictures

    I have a few photos from my Moab trip off of a friends Digital camera. I posted them here: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=1731537&a=13402703>http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=1731537&a=13402703</A>
    I have some better action pictures of other trails we did but need to scan them. I'll post them next week.

    As posted elsewhere. I broke a front Dana 60 spindle while I was in Moab this month. I think I did it coming down a tall step in 2wd low. The wheels jerked hard to the left and most of the weight of the truck was on my front axle. The wheel bearing nuts tore a chunk of the threads off the bottom of the spindle. I didn't notice until the next day when the wheel started wobbling. The outer bearing was smashed into little pieces and fell out while I was driving. A large piece of the inner race shaped like a "C" came out and stuck in my rear Swamper while driving 10 mph down US191 back to camp. $286 in parts later I replaced the bearings, races, manual hub, and spindle in camp. Other then that the old K5 took the 1400 mile round trip quite well. I got as high as 12mpg and as low as 5.7mpg.

    How do you like your spare mounted behind the seat like that? Do you run a trail box also?

    I love the spare behind the seat when I'm wheeling. I have a mount that slides into the reciever on the rear bumper when I'm traveling/camping over night. I put a reciever tube under the rear seat to slide the mount/spare tire in behind the seat when I want to get crazy. I have a trail box (3 1/2'x1'x2') between the spare tire and the tailgate.
