Wait...you want MORE obstacles this year? Seems like you had a whole boatload of issues last year... :dunno:

Haha yeah! I'm hoping not as many mechanical obstacles! Last year was rough but i learned a lot. This year ill keep my tranny fluid inside the transmission and my tcase won't sound like it's crushing marbles.

I thought your biggest issue was with fuel delivery? Maybe I need to re-read the thread. :dunno:

But, yes, the fluid is happier if it gets to stay inside the tranny.

I would say that you shouldn't EVER get left by yourself on a trail, but you seem to have proven that point for me. :doah:

Yeah hoping that'll never happen again. I don't mind being a tow truck though. Always good to help anyone you can!

I can't wait to start the new truck. Cab and chassis will be in my garage saturday. Then it's time to get crazy!

Which does beg the question, does something major break on EVERY good wheeling trip? :haha: :rotfl: :doah:

no, here's hoping I don't jinx myself, but in 4 years of abuse the worst things are a seperated front shaft and frozen smog pump which ruined my serpentine belt. Both were at local spots. :) there, I said it!
