    I'll get pics up tomorrow as I'm waiting for my buddy to send me the batch off of his camera. We went for a snow run today and all is well til the "last trail" (4 hours after we left)within a hour of that point i lost my coil spring on my jeep TWICE, my buddies 94ish blazer lost 4wd and Arturos '72 smoked the control module. 25 degrees and a road covered in ice...FUN TIMES :laugh: :D

    the shocks were the strap(which i know is wrong but i am still tuning the front) somewhere between the floored gas pedal and the landing the shock ripped out of the lower mount.

    it was a fun trip, nothing real hard or dangerous. perfect weather. just the main road was icy. I'm sure we are going back up this weekend.

    Did you get the text message I sent the other day... Do you want to go with me, Stefan, James and Strawberry Hill this Saturday? We are going near Lava Lake. I don't know all the scoop, but I was hoping you and Arturo would want to go.

    I have no idea how extreme, or NOT extreme it will be, but hopefully it will be fun and if it sucks, then we are all there and can go look around for our own fun.

    Let me know...

    So did you get rid of the front end shimmy yet? Can't wait to see you running in final form.

    I should have the new axles in with lockers by the end of the month and ready for serious play by then.

    still shimmying it's pointing towards the shocks cause since i ripped the one off of it it shakes even worst. so i'll put my other shocks on it and see what happends.
