    Tested it out this last weekend:
    It made it the 85 mile trip towing the trailer.

    Accidentally slid one tire into the mud pit.

    Crossed a stream.

    Donated it's 3/4 ton axles for another project of mine.

    Crossed another stream.
    [​IMG]
    Explored miles of powerline roads and backroads.
    [​IMG]
    And returned the 85 miles home towing a heavy load.

    It does have a valve going bad, or a cam lobe on #6, but I can't complain for $400. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Look's like it made the "journey" without incident, and towing a trailer load of loot to boot! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
