Some pictures from the Hammers this weekend. **Video added**

We ran Sledge, Aftershock, Sunbonnet and Backdoor. Only 2 of us made Backdoor though. Seems you need 120+" of wheelbase for a drama free run. My rig is the one standing on it's rear bumper on Backdoor. The crewcab is willyswanter, the flatbed truck on 44's is crlwn73, the linked red buggy belongs to GoDozer, the narrowed K5 is GoDozers son. The dog is mine- his name is Bo.

I have 42's, two guys with 44's, two with 46's. Fun weekend. My first trip to the Hammers...Now I'm spoiled for any where else.

So what's the story on Nole's tacked in u-joint. Man that things changed from a couple of summers back. Glad to see Ken got the LPG going. Nice pics BTW.

Noel had the original 14b 1350 yoke with straps...the straps stetched out, which blew the tits out of the yoke. The washers are tacked in there in place of the little retainer tits to keep the caps in. Had to do the same with willyswanter's rear shaft...except his blew apart coming out the exit for Backdoor...we tried to yank him out, kinda hard to yank a 8000lb truck up a steep ass dune though. Just stuck a new joint in the there and hoped it would stay alive long enough to get to the top. Luckily it did.

Kens 'pane setup was bolted in 45 minutes before we loaded up and left. No testing at all. Just fired it up to see if it worked and ran it onto the trailer. Worked awesome. After running with these guys and being the only carb'd rig, I'm definatley goin with the propane set up. Everyone was propane except for willyswanter with his MPFI. My q-jet is pretty good, even for a q-jet, but still didn't want to run like the propane and FI'd rigs.

Now that I'm home, I wanna go back...I wish I didn't live so damn far away. I can't see myself having anywhere near as much fun anywhere else.

Hey Joe I have to agree that does look like a fun run- When you see some of our lakes it will be fun too- get a heater and quit winning- Maybe next time we will stock your buggy with a 1410 end yoke and slip yoke -- Jess

You guys have any problems running those forklift tanks vertically?
Have you done anything to the valve or gauge? & are you able to
completely empty the tank?
Thanks.

I can't comment on that really, but I do know that they either swapped or refilled tanks everymorning.

Noel in the red buggy, Dozer, runs his tank horizontal behind the seats, the two other guys run them verticaly. Neither of them seemed to have any problems.


I'll see if I can get them to get on here to comment.

Looks like a good trip. Those are some big ass rigs. As for needing a 120" wheelbase to climb backdoor, i can do it with my 100 inch wheelbase without touching the clutch or using reverse

The camera is an Olympus D-560 3.2 megapixle. It's 3 or 4 years old I think. Good little camera.

Few corrections...

We ran Jack, Aftershock, Sunbonnet, Backdoor, Big Johnson, Claw, and something we didn't know the name of...

Narrowed k5 was driven by Noels (godozer) brother in law, not son. Noel would have to be ~70 for James to be his son

I was going to say....some of those pics look like the ridge on Jackhammer. Cool pics by the way, wish I was down there right now

P.S.- That's not the line Made for a cool picture though!

last time i was out there i wheeled for 4 days, and every day we wheeled at least 3 trails, and were at it all day until 10 at night. i went through nearly 50 gallons of propane. If you can borrow or get your hands on an extra tank or two it does help. In Luccerne Valley there is a gas station that sells LPG it is like 30 minutes from the lakebed, so if you need it it is down there, and it was pretty cheap too, under 2$/gal

Yeah, I got the names of some of the trails confused. Jack and Sledge got me twisted around.

On Backdoor, I know thats not the line- I started out 3 feet to the right of where I am in the picture, and ended up where I am after standing up on the bumper and pivoting/pirouetteing to the left. Theres no way I coulda made it to where I am in the pics by driving there with my carb.

The tapered K5 is right around 104-106"- Pretty close to stock. Dozer is 120"+, I don't remember exactly. The axles are d60/14b on both, so I'd imagine pretty close to what most full widths are as far as track width.

Noel is pretty much not even close to the guy you remember...He's calmed down ALOT. I think he likes the long hair...Gives him the "prophet" look.
