    Sierra trek was a successful trip, only smashed a bump stop, good trip IMO. Made it all the way to the top @ meadow lake. Now to prep for blazer bash. Tearing down the front end this week to see if water made it in the hubs, the river crossing brought a little water in the cab.

    Curising in with fourdyce lake in the background...

    Yeah with the leverage of the extension and the side angle that the axle hits at when articulating will bend it inwards

    Tires peeled the inner fenderwell, cut out the carnage and stripped the hubs down looking for water intrusion.

    Passenger side hubs and bearings were good, repacked them anyways. Get to the driverside and water made it inside and hammered my bearings. Must have been the rubicon trip back in June, never cleaned them out...doah. new bearings are in order again...

    Pass side inner fender before...

    Driver side bearings...although I could run them, they feel rough and there fairly cheap so Im replacing the bearings and hub seal.

    Probably take steel wool to the spindle and make it look perfect again...
