• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Well we had one hell of a trip to say the least. Body damage and many broken parts. My list of damage on my white Scout includes body, lf axle ujoint, alternator, both locking hubs, missing/loose crossmember bolts, smashed muffler and dinged up rear driveshaft plus some weird fuel injection issue which I think is the ignition module going out. Michael broke a shock and worst of all broke his transfer case in half. After trying for a couple hours to get michael's Scout towed/winched out of there we had to leave it behind. We barely make it out of there in my Scout on Saturday night with three wheel drive and a dying battery. Huge props to my optima battery for doing all that winching and still getting me home on a dead alternator. Anyway we made repairs to my Scout that night and early Sunday morning and headed back up with parts. Darren met us up at cisco grove campground to help with repairs and with the blessing of the forest service (who were totally cool about it) opened up the gate so we could get up there from the easy side. Here are a few pictures from the two days run.

Wow, and to think I almost went with you guys. :crazy:

what kind of case did michael break, is that an 18? Did he break it while getting air, or when he came back down? :smile5:

Dana 18 guts in a 20 case. Front driveshaft bound up causing the breakage.
