Nice dude... Glad it is back together... Listen,,, You need to weld up your front axle!!!!!!!!! I just got back from running Harlan, Ky @ Black Mountain ORV park and beat up my shit so badly!!!!!! I got home and pulled her into the shop to check things over, and noticed that the front axle had loosened up her butt welds on the tube (passenger side) SO needless to say,,,, I welded her up (both sides) good and tight... Apparently, those sticky's put more pressure on the front... I NEVER thought I would pop the butt welds on the front axle!!!!!!!!! Your next if you dont;)

Damn, I went down to Black Mountain a few years back for a four wheeler trip and saw quite a few of those Jeep trails they had, they looked nuts for a Jeep, let alone a wagon. Mine stayed in the parking lot, didn't even want to take it out on those knarly trails. Of course it was the end of November and the ground was frozen with snow everywhere.

How is the rear driveshaft holding up? I say weld it up, and stay away from the truss (if you play in the rocks) it is a "rock Hanger" Truss is great for high speed shit, but will hinder your abilities in the rocks..

Let me know your schedule for wheeling,,,, with enough notice, I will join ya....

I would at least weld the front all depends really takes one wrong bounce or one "too quick" of an approach to right the front off. Realistically your only losing 3/4" under the diff and a bit along the the long tube plus the 3/8" Thuren truss can take a beating

05PWrockcrawler- which Hutchinson wheels are you running (what part number?), are they these with the 5.28" backspacing?
http://www.rockmonsterwheels.com/produc ... duct=dodge
or these with the 4.5" backspacing?
http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/Hutch ... 669-017-01

Now that you've had them for a while, how do you like them?

Thanks for info!
