Welcome. I've had a couple of 3rd gens in the past, great rig for this area I think.
Found one more, GearWhine made it through the second attempt after Matt winched him back a few feet to get a better run at it.
And I got one good short video of commitment phobic honorary member LurkerNick (yep Nick, that is your official handle until you sign up) bashing through the snow until it finally got too deep. He...
Every time I go on that trail I love seeing this truck, somebody tell me what it is. Looks like it's straight out of Mad Max.
I was having so much fun I didn't take many pictures and most of what I did ended up not turning out, but my favorite of the day was seeing this example of a rando camper who was going to do whatever...
For those curious, I got the part I needed to fix my rig yesterday. It was $150, and is nice and small so I ordered a second and will start carrying a spare. If it happens again, it should take me...
I didn't think I would, but wrenching today just went great. I'm itching to get out again.
I forgot all about this. But yeah, I can make it. I'll go ahead and sign up.
I had a great garage day, got my driveshaft flange replaced, swapped out the tire I cut the sidewall on, and got my winch line sorted. I'll be ready to hit the trail tomorrow.
I was mostly watching and spotting but I did get two short vids of the fun.
It's a little weird that they won't just charge you more and come get you. Since my wife doesn't drive anymore once in a while I find myself needing a ride down the mountain and while the rideshare...
Is this down a little past the old air compressor?
Yep, won't be any trouble at all. The part is $150 and should be here this week.
I didn't even see or hear Gary pull the drone out so was surprised to see the drone pic. It came out great.
The output yoke flange coming out of the transfer case connecting to the rear driveshaft.
I'll see what I got tomorrow or Monday and post up. I didn't take much video today but think I at least got a good one of Ty clearing a section that gave him trouble last year. Was fun to see...
I'm going to go to a driveline shop Monday and see if they can beef it up, along with adding a driveshaft hoop so if I ever break one again it won't just fall out.
Man, you blow one engine and forever I'm known as the guy who blows up engines. It was a Rover, I hear if you look at them wrong they'll blow up.
Holy crap, I popped a wheelie on torque alone! No wonder the driveshaft let go, with the lockers on I was levering the front of the truck off of the ground by pushing torque through that driveshaft....
Nice meeting everyone. I had the front wheel drive Mercedes.
Want me to bring the hi-lift and crow bar over to get that door up? I'm in Colorado Springs tonight, brought my wife and rented a hotel. Fingers crossed she will feel well enough tomorrow to come...
Welcome. Tomorrow will be a fun day if you can make it.
It's all taken care of, I'll be there :thumb:
I don't actually know what axles I have Jim, I have never heard of Mercedes people talk about them like I have Jeep, Ford, or Chevy folks. I kind of just assumed Mercedes axles, but now you have me...
