did some of this yesterday...one good thing about being in a new state...so many new trails to explore

went up by Bakersfield to see what that area had to offer...

old stagecoach rd...a fun section a little later on this trail at the creek crossing...muddy descent to a rocky climb out


in the kings hill area, the climbs gets fun


mucky, off-camber section on part of the climb turned us around...needed more time in the day...some maxtrax and/or winch could have made it through and continue on...locked f&r almost made it through, but i stopped before tearing things up much more...


love all these shady bridges...and glad there's bypasses haha


the creek climb would be a sweet trail..but signs above point the trail away from there...might have been at one point..


topped off with a great sunset

back in April, we took both rigs into the backcountry of the San Rafael Desert, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Canyonlands (the Maze) for 5 days and 4 nights of adventure.

some highlights include:

Lower San Rafael Rd
Chaffin Ranch/Crystal Geyser
High Spur slots
Horseshoe Canyon and the Great Gallery via Deadman's Trail
Flint Trail
journey into the Land of Standing Rocks
Standing Rock exploration
Pictograph Fork via Chimney Rock loop
exit south to Hite

Camps:

High Spur
Sunset Pass
Standing Rock
BLM Land outside of the NRA

Enjoy! (do yourself a favor and watch in HD!)

few recent updates:

InSain Fabrication Front aluminum with Baja Designs 30" Stealth and 2- BD Squadrons, Comeup 9.5 Seal Winch with Factor 55 Flatlink-E and TCT Magazine branded fairlead by Rokmen Offroad
Interco Trxus MT 35x12.5
InSain Fabrication bedrack custom height to fit the CVT Mt Rainier at an ideal height
InSain Fabrication tiregate, driver side open with Jerry can holder and camp table
InSain also modified my CBI rear bumper to eliminate the swingarm
Pelfreybilt aluminum skid plates front to back (IFS, Tranny, TCase and Gas Tank)

I was able to shave 400lbs off my prior setup with the changes and improved my approach and departure angles.

Final step will be a canvas wrap on the bed rack...

RXT mod...

discovered an issue with my rear shock length while driving on rocks in jberry813 's yard...when rear tires were tucking, the shocks were fully compressing causing my shock to be the final bump. no bueno..

with the help of 303 Shock Services and Icon, we retrofitted some RXT lower shock mounts on to the Icons to give me some more uptravel.

before


after


testing compression


previously had zero shaft showing...much better now



this now got the shock cycling where it should be and the shock is no longer my final bump :woot:

not an expert by any means, but i've never seen a leaf spring bend backwards like that
not ideal, but they still work just fine... i should have gone with the next weight up, but i underestimated my constant additional weight..

still much better than the old toytec boss leaf pack i had before these deavers..

got one step closer over the weekend on the Pro Rock 60...

got the studs installed, shafts pressed together with bearing and backing plates... nice to get rid of one pile of parts sitting in my garage!

Dynatrac ProRock60 install day! went smoothly until the end when i saw my driveshaft was 1.75" too long... getting that dropped off this week to have shortened and freshened up...

for now, she's in and everything else is connected... brakes, sensors and air line.





obligatory no legs shot...

Nice work, I figured you'd been busy just not with truck stuff. I moved back down to New Mexico and have been slow on letting folks know.

Thanks man... got the driveshaft in today and cleaned up a lot of the wiring.. moved some switches around and prepping for a switch pro. Working on getting the FJ ready too .. so many projects, not enough free time.. been enjoying exploring NM, we'll hit you up when we're down there next.. closer than ID a bit..

another productive weekend on the trucks.. got my driveshaft back from Bill's Driveshaft (ended up shortening it 2") and got that installed on Saturday.. finished wiring up the rear locker and started to relocate my front locker and compressor switches...

back in business!

got to sort through a giant mess of wires... relocated my compressor switch from the engine bay into the truck and moved the front locker from left of the steering wheel to in front of my shifter... while in there, gutted all other wires since i'm going to a switch pro..

new layout of awesomeness... L>R compressor, front ARB, rear ARB, ADD switch

after getting the truck buttoned up again, turned our attention to the FJ... didn't get as far as i'd like, but we got the flush mount baja designs squadrons installed in the bumper and LP6's mounted up... the warrior bumper did not have fogs originally, so we had to cut the holes...what a pain, but glad it's done!

on the next episode of Bob's Garage, get some power to the BD awesomeness just mounted on the FJ via S-Tech Switch System and get power back to the truck's lights via Switch Pro 9100
