    So far just the ps pump

    44" aired down tires + detroit locker + full hydraulic steering - power steering = major suckage

    Finished 2nd half of Hells Revenge without it. Really sore and tired.

    Thank you to @ChrisPerry for the ninja visegrip pry and lever technique.

    Also, thank you @skunked for allowing us the use of the only concrete slab in camp. Made for easy work.

    I broke a tail light lens on Cliffhanger.

    Broke the top off of my passenger interior door lock button.

    No. I wipe my boots off when I get in.

    I was in the dunes making Mark crap his pants when the Jimmy just died. No fuel pump. Checked the wiring up front. No help. Pulled the spare tire out and removed the access panel for the gas tank. The plastic wire bulkhead was dislodged. No O ring and the wires were not making contact inside. Put it back together with some rags stacked on top to hold it in place. Did another jump just to prove it worked and hot footed it back to the highway.

    Has metal putty holding it on now.

    Pretty funny I'm standing there talking while Nate is working. We lost a bolt from the transmission mount into the adapter so just 1 bolt holding it in.

    1. Bent, dropped the bottom cap, and lost all fluid in a rear shock
    2. 5 fuses for the fuel pump, some terrible wiring was grounding out
    3. Smacked my rear yoke and drive shaft a bit, will be pulling it off and getting it checked.

    At our lunch stop yesterday lost ignition and fuel pressure.
    Turned out the fuel pump came off the sender so no fuel got up the lines.
    The ignition was fixed by swapping in new distributor. We weren't getting any tach signal to the FiTech, checked for spark and got nothing.
    Oreilly had a ready to run unit, dropped in and fired right up.

    It's the second time I have hit it and with as much street as It sees it seems like a good idea.

    Good job guys. Battle scars rule! Especially the ones that you look at when you get back to camp and say "when did that happen???"
