Moved the winch solenoid box over. Gotta have the most airflow possible over the condensor when im crawling with the AC on 8) . Made some light tabs and burned them into the winch plate to get the spot lights off the A pillars

Thats right man, gotta crawl in the cool :D you can a hop in with me at Potts and see what its all about. Its like a slice of awesome.

On the serious side...ive never had any issues with it running warm but figured more airflow can never hurt. Running through Butchers Block was the only time ive seen the temp gauge move off dead center.

Theyre growing on me. I never really liked them based on looks alone. Goofy asymetrical tread, small sidewall lugs. But im liking them. Anxious to see how they do in Ivy

Went to replace the busted axle joint lastnight only to figure out I have bigger problems. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get whats left of a broken axle shaft from behind the axle seal without total disassembly? I ordered a chromo for the short side. I reckon as money allows ill upgrade the long side and the stubs.

Jack up the opposite side of the axle and run a long magnet up the broken side to hopefully fish it out. Other than that your gonna have to pull the carrier. Wouldnt hurt anyways about getting out any broken shards

The magnet isnt working, atleast none I have. Its broken behind the seal. If I could get the front edge to pop past the lip of the seal it would come on out.
