What time? I may be - will be working Sat night/Sun Morn, so perhaps early afternoon or real late morning.

Hey Keith, no reply back from Lurch yet. I'm still game for 1:30 and could meet at end of Southern or at WalMart at Southern and Unser. Are you coming solo or with the fam? I'll probably go solo but Steph still undecided.

Yeah we're still good for 130. Han hasn't been out there before, so she'll be going as will Kaden. We can just meet out at the end of Southern just before the dunes.

Anyone else want to go?

Thanks for a good outing guys. Lots of fun! Still have not lost any more power steering fluid, LOL. Thanks Jon and Steve for the expert spotting.

We are guessing that PS fluid momentarily sprayed from a hose connection (spring clamp). Maybe the hose was somehow stretched or bent while suspension articulating severely and trying to turn while front locker still disengaging? Seems to have quit leaking.

Given that you have IFS, the PS hoses are coming out of your rack and pinion unit, which I don't see moving under any circumstances.

Could be a simple pin hole or an abrasion.

Also, front diff has slow leak on ARB locker side. Skid plate for diff took a huge hit by hidden rock on a snow run. What should I do for starts?

you should remove the skid plate, clean up the area and assess the leak. Could be as simple as tightening up things or as bad as a broken or bent item of some sort.

I ment to show this video at the meeting but ended up not being able to make it. So here is the footage from the last Puerco run,it's much more impressive in HD, still working on my compression and exporting settings.
