Thanks. I'll be ready this year, I'm currently shopping for a tow rig/work truck.

Hope to see you in the trails!

It's been a few years. Original screen name was lost in the password-apocalypse.

Now photobucket stopped alowing free linking of pics, but they should still be there if you click them.

New pic, one of these things is not like the others!

Finally made it to Harlan County's Black Mountain Off Road Adventure Area last month. Been wanting to go for years. Some challenging stuff out there, to say the least.

Some of the trails I did; Cream Puff, Rock Garden, Killin' Time, White Trail Crawl.

The Sport has been reliable, and at this point, 10 years since the axle swap, I think I have most of the bugs worked out. Some temporary fixes have become permanent, and the interior could use some refining. She still runs hot, I think that might be because my radiator is at an angle, but most of the time I can keep it under 215 with the heater on.

Just haven't had time to do more of the things I wanted to. Got a half finished rear swaybar in the garage, still no winch, tubework around wheel wells.... That's the way it goes.

Went to Bundy Hill in Michigan, struggled through the tire pit and then bkoke 2 axleshafts about a minute later. Got pinned between 2 huge tires and heard pop pop. Right front and left rear both broke at the diff.

Here's getting winched out after winching the huge tire over from in front of me.



I have spares for both, should be ready again shortly.

Dang Danny boy!

Good to see the truck still in service. Your old michigan pen pal checking in (dont have the log in info to the old name above) and now im in arizona. You wheel like the dudes down here! Two-scoops! Love to see that thing out on some of the southwest trails, it would be right at home.

Thanks!

Trying to get out more this year. Crossed Harlan off my list last year, trying for Moab to be my next big trip. I'd love to get out to KOH too.

She's a trailer queen now. Getting 12-14mpg towing, that's better mileage than driving the Sport.

Let me know when you're heading out to Moab, if you wouldn't mind the company.

Every time I re-read your stuff I start drooling. The '99 to go under the knife the end of the month. Can't wait! I'm hoping to have it done and tuned by Sept.

Lil flop. Was able to get pulled forward, might have been able to drive out of it, but didn't have the front locker ready. The air tank was empty, compressor was turned off and i would have had to idle in that position for 5 minutes to let the system get up to ARB pressure.

Ooops! Should've taken the line on the right I guess

Glad it wasn't too serious.

Back in the dunes after 10 years. The H1'[email protected] made somewhat easy work of it, coulda used more power out there. Silver Lake, MI

How are the dunes in a low-power rig anyway? Worth a 5 hour drive?

Yes, worth it for sure, especially if you've never been there yet. I've been up "Test Hill" many times in my rig, this most recent time I couldn't get up the steepest part. The park is 900ish acres with few trees, lots of places to play, not just steep dunes. Some DEEP puddles too.

The drive is beautiful in the fall. Used to go every year(2002-2008) when I lived in Homer Glen, about 4.5hrs. Now for me(in NWI) it's only 3.5

Another bonus is the beach, stop and jump in Lake Michigan when you and the car get warm. Silver lake gets busy though, call ahead to book camping.
