The PSC hydraulic assist works so much better now with this T&T High Steer set up (one ton gear). The BFG's are grabbing and working great like always.
Note the WJ (Grand Cherokee) knuckles that provide the foundation for the high steer setup.
We were also very pleased with our new emulsion Fox Racing Shox. They worked amazingly well, especially coupled with the Old Man Emu (OME) coils and T&T suspension. We felt a whole new ride and feel, let alone awesome handling.
This gives a view (top down) of Carnage Canyon. It's hard to see but the drop off in the middle of the trail is pretty much a winch-up obstacle that is nothing less than gnarly!!!!
These trails are about 8000 elevation so the scenery is more high desert type.
The soil here is best described as slippery (greasy?). When you put it on big rocks, you get a ride you'll never forget.
Bob Levenhagen of T&T Customs poses for a good camera shot at the top of Carnage Canyon. All in all, it was a great trail test day on Chinaman Gulch.
Then it happened.....
Tyler Schleppy of 4x4Offroad and Used Parts performed magic and created the right length of splines on a spare axle he happen to have along in his XJ, using our Warn PowerPlant winch/air compressor and a cut-off tool. Will Carter looks on and helps. All hands chipped in to make sure "Red" got back to camp.
We had to press on the new bearings (that Tyler also happened to have) with a pipe and "armstrong" work. We did it. It worked.
