So, what happened?
You stopped at Bear Camp? You needed a dizzy?
I was there, relayed your ham message to Desmond, who was parked next to me.
I had the only Pig on the Rubithon

You dont have to make it look like the old 55 in 1 trip, geez. Rough go, you guys didnt deserve all that, toughed it out tho. FWIW, casual year, you guys were the excitement for a few days. Jamie killed it in the kitchen, skunked at raffle, again. There were some happy kids, and a pretty good group of them, enjoyed watching them get stoked and 1 kid redonated the grand prize he won cause he has won like 3 in a row, it was cool, had DD all to myself.

Some trips your Godzilla, some trips your Tokyo, after being spanked by the trail last weekend. I barely managed to make it out. By the time I got back to the gate keeper, had no front drive at all, bad electrical charging system, weak battery, and had to winch my way through.

If it were not for the gracious hospitality of several people, I would have never made it out on my own. And for that I Gratefully Thank them all.

OK, now that I am settled down a bit, and since I blew up my front axle. On the way home I thought about it, and the stock front axle I have lasted pretty darn good. I realized it is close to 40 years old, been over the Rubicon over 30 times, has had 14 blown up birfields, two lockers, and 3 different 3rd members, IT HAD A GOOD , hard, but good life, and time to put it on the wall as a well earned trophy.

Therefore, I guess I am now in the market for a decent Dana 60 for the front axle replacement.

If anybody has a line on a decent, yet in expensive one, please let me know.

Thank you

Oh my! You blew up chrome Molly axles? My weak link was the tiniest Allen screw on the whole vehicle and I left my glasses in the tow rig.
