Spare tire brackets have been bent and are more now. The area directly behind the spare is where the little cam type guide is mounted and this spring rides along the cam to slow the tailgate's movenent or make it feel lighter. ??? Anyways its been somewhat busted but worked fine for me but now I cant even let it all the way down. It will just hang there about a quarter way open. Once I take that spring off it should open up all the way. I'll need parts to get it right. Some hammering and maybe a piece welded on to the bottom of the bed and it should work great again.

Did you get that 2nd video?

Here's a little more of the same

Thanks for the torque wrench Steve. I like to use it on the spindle every time.

Going together nicely. Paper towels just happened to be loftover from camping weeks ago. Now they are standard equipment in my truck. I don't know what I would have done without them this time. Greasy parts+dirt=troubles

The last wheel going on. So very happy.


On the trail again but struggling in 2wd.


Nice clearance Scuba

I got hung up on the same rock and got the strap. Not much left in me by this time.

The Jeep that showed us the way.

I love the bottle opener in front of the door.

Patrick no longer in the rear.


This was a fun little stretch



Steve waiting in case I need the strap again

but with good spotting

and determination

I didn't need it


Patrick getting poor help.



Thanks guys. Lets do it again soon. Well, when its a little cooler.


The end of a good day

Dammit tony your new pics aren't showing up on my Iphizzle and I'm dying to see them. Guess I'll wait till after work

Fink, going down is still my biggest fear on the trail, the pics really don't do it justice.
After the jeep went down I felt it was doable so I jumped in and got er done
but yes, slightly scared. Afterwards though, I wanted to go up flip a Uey and go back down, it was sorta invigorating. Am I rambling?

I agree with that spot. It was just what I needed after all the work I just did. I good thrill to bring the fun back into the ride. Not to mention the rock mis-stacking for Patrick.

I got a code 6 and 5. No codes before the trip. I just went outside and looked at the O2 sensor and there is no wire connected anymore. Hopefully I can splice it back together. I don't want to buy another sensor until smog time gets close and only if needed. I hope it fixes both codes.
I don't know what to do about the (Ne) code. Not sensing engine revolutions. Anybody got a clue about that one. I can understand getting the wire knocked off or pulled out of the O2 sensor while wheeling but what about the other?

I got a new universal O2sensor yesterday. I'll see if that fixes my codes.
