I took the Hell***** to have estimates for re-gearing from 3:88 to 4:56 after Xmas.

One place wanted $4200, another wanted $3900 - talk about pissed! And one of them said, "Whut?" when I asked about backlash adjustment...

Last 3 places I went were around $2000 - that helped settle me down.

Re: What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

My wife and I ran Pilot Rock trail backwards today. Its amazing how different a trail is just running it in the opposite direction. We had a great time. We came across a motorcyclist that hit a razor and I believe broke his leg. There were a lot of people there and had help coming so we continued on our way. We went fairly early and it was already hot when we got done. ( About 2-3 hours of offroading ). Feels good to be sitting in the house for awhile. Then back to the labor day weekend honey do list

Re: What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

It was a busy weekend. We worked 14 hour days and one of those days I only had 2.5 hours of sleep due to a gassy Boxer. Sweet dog but, woof, smelly. I finally gotten the FJ set up and useful. I used it as a rolling tool box this weekend.





Now that I've got it usable I can start working on the C20 again. It's been a long time since I've had a dead reliable vehicle.

Iffn you grab a bigger hammer and that doesn't fix it, then the problem is electrical.

Re: What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

Drove 60 miles to Durango CO for the monthly doctor visit. I took 550 there this time. The south end of Durango has several very large new condo complexes built and being built. There are several hundred units total. Plus another large luxury hotel.

On the way up there a Unimog went past going south. It looked very late model, and had a large camper style box on it. I drooled a bit.

Re: What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

Not today, but in the last week, I've put 700 miles on it. Took it to a cabin in Grand Lake for the weekend, went on a few hikes, took it into Idaho Springs today for some easy wheeling. It just soaked up the trail and has taken me to some wonderful spots.

Also, I've been intermittently sorting it out, cabin and engine air filters, Diode Dynamics mirror marker lights and license plate bulbs, and found that I need a 15A fuse for the cigarette plug. Hard to run my compressor to air back up without that little gem.

All in all, it's been a wonderful bonding experience

Re: What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

Took a trip up north Saturday afternoon. went by Stoneman Lake, Mormon Lake, and camped Saturday night by Lake Mary south east of Flagstaff. these are more of marsh areas than lakes. the north end of Lake Mary does have boat access and a lot of people fish there. these are all 6500-7200ft. stayed at a forest service campground at Lake Mary. came back through Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona on the way home. 270 miles round trip about 45 miles of it was what the forest service calls un-maintained road.

Re: What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

Took a road trip to Fairbanks to (a) visit the grandkids and (b) fly out to moose camp for annual hunt. On the road, the transmission decided it did not want to downshift to pass. RPMs went up to 5000 but the tranny did not do a thing. Hmmm. I suppose I need to figure that out today. Any suggestions are always welcomed.
