    We were down in Moab last week and a friends K5 broke the frame around the steering box. I called up ORD and they overnighted one to Moab and called someone local for us to weld it on. Thanks again, without you guys we would probably be still there trying to fix it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Dirk's the guy to thank, if I remember right, he did the work. It is nice knowing the right people in the right places though.
    You're welcome. Glad it worked out for you.

    Yup, he helped us out. I knew he was a good person to know when I met him 4 years ago in Moab on an Easter Jeep run. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I'll second that. When my locker broke, Stephen got his father to bring one with him to Moab. We didn't manage to find the equipment necessary to install it, but I sure appreciated the effort. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    This year we had a guy show up with a doubler that was jumping out of gear in the 205, so we (actually the customer and my Dad) dropped the case and found that it had no input bearing at all. The shop that had assembled the kit had not machined the case and put the input bearing in it, so needless to say, it didn't work too well. Luckily we were able to take our display apart to fix him up. Otherwise he was going to drive back to washington right away. And probably pound the guy that assembled his Doubler. Now he's going to wheel a while and then go home and pound the guy that assembled the Doubler.

    More Moab adventure.

    It was a pretty fun week, good magazine stuff, not so great weather but slick rocks were kind of fun, good company, overall good times. We'll have to do that again.

    No, he's pretty religious about his fans now. We got mud baths but that was about it. There was 3-4" of standing water in the bottom so things were a little slicker than last time. Brandon actually sat 3 feet back from the ledge and floored it to get out, I was able to start with my tires just up the ledge a little bit and go from there. It still took 8-10 tries for me to get out. One of those was really close to a roll over but I managed to gas it in reverse just in time. I was doing some deep breathing.

    toby was the only one with any problems in the big tub when he rolled over.
    that pretty much ended our fun there for the day because it started poring down rain for about an hour while we got his blazer running again. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
