    Well we ran down to montrose on Friday and ran boulder I drove everything but the exit! Finally got that middle waterfall thanks to my skinner belly, right after that I realized that I had a blown air shock on the RR. Tried tightening the Metal valve but it was too late so I drove the rest of the trail and gave the exit a few tryís but Iím still a little gun shy after just about back flipping off it two years ago... once back to the trailer I tried to charge the shock but the valve broke off so I thought I was done for the weekend went to my buddy shop alpine off road and they had a few in stock but nothing that would work so hit every store that was still open and I found nothing so about ready to call it I posted up on Face tube and a guy I knew in montrose had one so the next morning I ran to the motorcycle shop and pick up some shock oil and was on the trails bye 1030am!

    On Saturday we ran death row the dropped down die trying (man that was a lot of fun!) then ran up cactus with no issues!

    Over all the trip was fun the buggy works better then before and the lower gears are not too low but I like where it is and was able to get some more wheel speed with less effort! The only thing I need to fix afterwards is this damn atlas is leaking again I need to pull the skid plate to see why..... Iím super flustered that I have this issue

    I did take many photos due to the wife wasnít with us so here is a few and Iíll try to round up some from the others

    Weíll drop the skid last night to inspect the t case leak and found that the 3rd shifter bolt that I didnít use was leaking so bad didnít even come to mind to see if it was open or what not....... so I found a bolt and Plumers taped it. Fingers crossed thatís it

    Jared, Thanks for continuing to share. This is my favorite build of all time. I saw it out on the trail years ago when it still had a full body. Definitely influenced my build, which evolves every year. Starting to look more and more like a tube buggy. Recently I have been getting a lot of grief on the trail for not "just buying a buggy". It would be nice, but it's not the same.

    No problem man! I love cruising the boards and getting ideas on what works and what doesnít or what I like in looks! What trail was that???

    Man sometimes I wish I would have just started from scratch and built a buggy thatís not off a Jeep. Thereís things that could be better but this thing works pretty good as is and Iím pretty happy with all the new changes.

    I say keep wheeling it until you canít keep up with buggyís then make the jump! Thatís how it played out for me

    Made one more trip this past weekend to rangely and had a blast night wheeling Friday and most of the day Saturday until I decided to flop the rig and hydro lock the motor! So my motor now has nice size hole in the side of it.....
