    I think I finally found someone who trimmed their fenders more than me. Do you run with the hood on the road and take it off when you get there, or just leave it at home?

    Assuming the injection worked well for you?

    What trails did you guys run?

    I trimmed the fenders as a last minute thing because the passenger side one was barely hanging on. We took the hood off just for the trail beacuse as there were no hinges and no place to mount hinges it would move around a lot. It is only a temp solution, it will be back together this winter. The injections works good, had a small problem with it the first night we got there but I think it was just an adjustment thing. Golden spike or what ever its called was the only trail I was able to do, I broke the locker pulling White Whomper out. Butch ran Lower Hellderado and Potato Salad Hill.

    What? The WhiteWhomper doesn't break. OK, OK, so you got me. Let me know what you come up with on your locker. If you think that shims will help, I'll pick some up and bring down for you.

    Nope shims won't help. The locker is now totally broken after trying to drive home with it. Made it to Stephen Watson's shop to make repairs. Took the locker out and there are now pieces missing, so it's toast.

    It's a cheapie- EZ-Locker. I've been running it for almost 3 years now, but I think I over worked it.

    Nice pics all around. Hopefully you can get it going for Independence. Glad everybody got home even if it did take some work to do so. Steve I have a sawzall if you like Greg's fenders I can hook you up. Potato Salad is a handful for a Blazer!

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    You mean a cheEZe-Locker? :D Whats the plan now, 14 ff and 8 lugs on the front? I had an EZ in my old 44 front, never did care for it much.

    1 Sawzall + 2 cases beer = room for 42s on Steve's truck. :D

    If I put another cheEZe-locker back in I can go to independence. I've run the cheEZe-locker for a while now without any problems. I probably shouldn't have been so stubborn about doing the pulling myself, I just wanted to get going out of the trail and it takes time to get trucks swapped around and rehooked up to the tow strap. Butch did take WhiteWhomper out the rest of the way from the last obstacle on. Butch also help winch myself and WhiteWhomper over some of the major obstacles that I could not do myself. If I do the right thing and put a Detroit in the rear I will not be able to go to Independence, I really want to go! So in short I'm undecided at this point what to do. Another cheEZe-locker can be back in the rear in an hour and off I go. Any suggests or ideas? I don't know how I feel about a Lincoln Locker.

    Where on the Spike did you break it? I've come out of that trail in 2wd many times, but always w/a blown front-end.

    My suggestion is to use this little mis-hap as an opportunity to 8 lug it, especially if you ever plan on going to bigger tires. Get a 14FF, and parts to convert the front-end. As for Independence, either weld the spiders, or tough it out and ride along w/someone. This truck isn't your daily driver, is it? I think in the long run you'd be $$ and time ahead to do the conversion instead of buying another drop-in locker. It seems as if you are getting more serious w/how you use the truck and the trails you run, why not go with something you won't have to worry about. What gears are you running?

    No the truck is not a daily driver and it sits in the garage most of the time. Not sure if I want to goto 1ton, I'm on the edge about it. I already have a 14ff that I've had for a long time now. As for gears I'm running 4.56's.
