Finally got to off-road test the locked rear, Q78's, shackle reversal, square front d-shaft, smurfs, front axle rebuild, etc, etc, etc last Sunday...basically the entire summer's worth of work. HOE-LA She's never pulled so hard in the mud. Found a nice hole at least 30" deep along the Red Deer River...climbing out I heard the telltale bang of a broken driveshaft or birf only to discover that I actually hit and drug out an entire D44 axle housing buried in the swamp that some mouthbreather had left behind. WTF. Anyway not exactly a technical thread but I felt the need to share. I love my cruiser.
