    This is what happens when you let Springer spot you!!!.... :blush:

    Actually he was not even over by me when I was driving it. He was over breaking springs!!!!!!

    Marv and I had a wheeling fix we just has to take care of today, and this is what I got for it. Along with a broken main leaf spring, on Upper Ajax.

    We had a blast, quick trip to the rocks today. You guys missed it!!!!!!

    No real damage, motor started right up, very little smoke, basically we kept on wheeling. Winched it over and wheel it out.

    Lots of fun. :grin: :D :blush:

    Did you guys try and run OD or BM? Sorry I missed it. I am broke as a joke and had to do some work to the truck today. Still need to reinstall my front driveshaft, top off the 208 and tranny, and repack my wheel bearings. I got my wiring problem that killed the truck on Lower Term fixed today along with some other junk I had to do to get the truck running and driving.

    What amazes me is that none of the hardware store that you carry fell out. Cool pics.

    Tom,

    I have mastered the art of keeping my $hit together when I wheel, it's not that easy, as my "Hardware Store" box is starting to fall apart. But for now it's holding. I'm getting ready to re-design the box. The wooden box is taking it's toll.

    You are correct, though, nothing fell out of off. Including the cooler. :D :D !

    It looks alot worse than it really is, it was a very contoled flop, actually what happened is I was fine, until I actually shifted my body weight to shift the transmission, when I shifted my weight, it ended the balance and shifted to the flop.

    Oh well....... I knew I was close to the point, just thought I has a little bit more finess room.

    Thanks for the comments, thought everyone would appreciate the pictures.

    Rob

    Nice pics! You are making a habit out of getting on your side arent ya! :)
    When does the full roll over come?

    Too bad we couldnt chat before i left. I tried to get hold of ya thru the week, but I guess things never connected. thanks for trying on the axle search. I am swinging by to look at a truck tomorrow near here that should have a D44 in it. Prolly have to buy the whole thing to get the axle, but thats the way things work up here. No one parts out stuff any more. :doah:

    Hey, BTW, rumour has it we are coming back next yr.. and they are talkin about a month long trip. Which means with a few extra days of our own holiday time and a few bucks of our own, a guy might... just might... be able to trailer a certain S-10 hybrid down for the month. :grin:
    That would be kinda interesting hehe. Id show you guys how deep that river crossing really is!
    Anyways, made it home safe... and cold. Its around -30 C right now.
    Gonna go snuggle up in my blanket now.
