    Mine was BigO in Glenwood... Loosened and adjusted cam bolts and didn't torque them back.

    BigO in Golden said "we don't adjust cam bolts for an alignment, only tie rod ends so it wasn't us"

    Yep. At the place getting aligned. They just called and said it’s still pulling right... they will try to get it better but we’ll see. The stt maxx thread people complain about it pulling right so it is what it is

    Sometimes these little things with the cage takes longer then just bending and notching a tube. Lunch break is over peace out!

    Getting old sucks.

    Sore from crawling around the wheeling rig yesterday going over things after an abusive run through Chinaman Gulch last weekend. The list of crap addressed just yesterday: Checked all wheel hub bearing preloads (and reset one which was looser than I liked), re-torqued all four drive flange bolts (I'm thinking I either didn't use enough thread locker or my thread locker wasn't good enough [I used blue], or I just used the lockers so much and twisted it up that the thread locker didn't have a chance [usually happens under those conditions]) as I was getting leaking of either grease or gear oil from around them, recentered the steering wheel as I slightly tweaked (again) the drag link, removed the steering skid plate to sledgehammer it as straight as possible (it's been mashed for some time and not doing its job), and a slight adjustment to the roller fairlead bracket as one was bumped enough that the roller wouldn't turn easily (and of course that was the roller needed for my own recovery on the middle line of Whale Tail... that trail is much more difficult than the last time I ran it [6-8 years ago]). Oh, and an air hose dusting off of the interior and engine bay.

    For the first time in my life, I bent the lip of a steel wheel pretty badly. At home, I took the 8lb sledgehammer to it and managed to straighten it back out so well I'll run it. Thought I was going to have to replace it.

    3,300miles into our journey! Really liking Montana. I mean it sucks stay away! Got to use the solar and generator. The Yamaha ef2400ishc struggles when the ac turns on so thinking about getting a Honda 3000w generator. So far loving the Bigfoot. It now has some pinstripes from taking it down a logging road that we barely fit down(almost got stuck on).
