    Couple pics from the latest wheeling trip.

    Came up with a couple more mods I want to do while I was there. :crazy:

    1st one is a new front drive shaft from High Angle cause I pulled mine apart on Bamm-Bamm.

    2nd is a front locker, going with a spool, better axles, outers w/full circle clips and better u-joints.
    All that for the same cost of just one selectable locker. :eek1:

    Nice pics. great day judging by the extreme angles. Don't remember any water holes being THAT deep, guess I missed that one. Your doors are off again, did your cowl stay where it belonged?

    Warm rocks = good traction. :thumb:

    The water hole is on Sluce and it was about 5ft deep due to all the recent rain.

    Cowl movement was minimal.
    It's when the doors go back on that you notice it.
    Wheelin without the doors is the only way!

    Okay, here's two option's for ya then.

    We're going down again this coming October but it'll be back to Rausch Creek this time not Paragon, so that won't mess up next year's plans...option #1

    Bring her along, option #2 :thumb:

    Well, we sorta do...we have to drive 400 miles one way to get there but it's worth it once your on the rocks.

    The pics were taken by a friend and this was his first trip, he did a great job.

    Couple more pics but after a few they all start to look the same, it's all good though.
