Wheeled this weekend at Beasley Knob and boy was that knarly! El Heep just couldn't make some parts, but did awesome as expected. Sooooo.... While my bro in law is trailering his Wrangler, I decide to play around on some cross ties that were set up. Only two high. I inched my way up so I could just crawl up for a good pose shot, and my muddy shoe slips completely off the dang clutch and BAM! There goes a leaf spring. Front shackle gave but the rear stayed put, and it snapped about two inches below the post.
Moved the driver's side of the axle back about 5 inches! So, off goes the Wrangler and on goes the truck. Sucks, but I'm gonna go see Tanker and Halftrac since they're only about two hours away and get a new front spring set. Totally sucks, but lesson learned. When play time is over, JUST GO ON HOME! It was a fun trip anyways :O) Waiting on the bro to publish the videos so I can post them.
