    Dawg it says “Overland” in your name. If you don’t know what those are your Overland street cred is gonna drop significantly

    Troof. Known as limb risers, they assist branches and brush up over the truck. A large portion of them for me was planning on putting a solar panel on the hood and didn’t want any debris touching it. Since installed I've noticed a big benefit to keeping branches off the windshield. The tabs I just got are to make them more permanent to the bumper.

    I would benefit greatly from those. I need sliders on my mirrors in the worst way.

    Moär maintence...

    Garage renno is about 80% complete, but figured it was time to at least start working on the truck in the garage with new flooring vs the hot asphalt driveway



    Swapped in the Icon retro Delta joints into my non Icon UCAs.
    Perfect timing with the driver side uni ball shot. Also replaced passenger inner tie rod, chain vise ftw. I have a set of super bumps laying around after swapping to air bags, gonna upgrade the front bumps with them..

    Isn’t wrenching in the garage awesome? It’s so nice being on level ground and out of the sun.

    Last trip to Rausch. What a trip.. Ran blues all day that got surprisingly boring. Decided to dabble into a black (Trail 20). What a turn of events spending several hours in the beginning of that trail. I went first into Trail 20 and made my way slowly through, getting spotted and winching. I got to a certain point and Matt followed behind me. Without a spotter I wanted to climb one more step up section to a flat area than walk down to watch Matt come up. Well that last knuckle ended up smashing my drive shaft. I just need like 6” of clearance to make it, which I did once back up and stacked a couple rocks. Went down to find Matt high centered on a rock. Unfortunately he had issues with his compressor in the morning so both his front and rear locker weren’t working. We decided to spool his winch to the nearest tree, winch wasn’t working. Seemed like a low draw of power once tension was on the line. I planned on limping up the trail and getting off to go back around to winch Matt backwards. In the mean time the guys tried high lift with rocks stacked and maxtrax but nothing worked. I find my way around and get behind Matt to winch him... I get tension on the line, try pulling, and fry my winch. We’re just scratching our heads at this point. I come up with a side snatch using a 25’ winch line extension I made through a snatch block. I tug him back and a bit away from the tree and bank he was up against. This gave us the opportunity to stack some rocks for clearance and he was through that section. He got up to flat higher ground and after three K turns he was heading back the other way. Ironically enough getting off trail he high centered in the same spot. I was off trail licking my wounds so I sent another truck in for a quick snatch. We’re all off trail at this point, it’s super hot, we didn’t cover any ground, and we’re all wondering what the fuck just happened in the last three hours lol. To be honest.. that three hours the the most fun of the day. Back to came for some brew and grub! Matt ended up helping me pull my driveshaft and the next morning I drove over three hours home taking it easy. New shaft is on order and the buggy is sitting in the driveway till it comes in.
