    February 4 - 26 Days to Departure

    Sunday we dove into some other projects around comfort and functionality.


    Did an accessory Drive inspection. Everything looked good, so that's a plus.


    dropped the exhaust, and inspected it. Andrew welded up any missed sections from the rush job before jericho last year.


    My dad and I wrapped the exhaust as it passes under the cab, should help keep the floor temps in check next year.


    Dad dressed and loomed some wires under the hood from the york install

    Mitch also worked on getting the passenger door sorted out, Andrew knocked out the anti-sub straps for the harnesses, we nut and bolt checked for the trip, reinstalled the exhaust, did a test brake check, re-checked u-bolt torques.


    Drove home in a snow storm. The hill going up through Gilsum was sketchy to say the least

    We made good progress getting ready for the trip. I've got a handful of things to knock out. But it should be fairly doable in the two weekend days I have left on the schedule.

    Cool

    Good luck Chris!

    That's a [lot of] wrap!!
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

    February 7 - 22 Days to Departure

    Last night I swapped the rear axle out in my 2500 for a full float 14 bolt. It used to have a stock axle out of a Hummer H2, which was also a 3/4 ton, but came from the factory with the 9.5" semi float 14 bolt, and an eaton elocker. The elocker long since rounded the pins and had been out of service. Will and Casey had been asking about the axle for a little while because the elocker will fit into will's trucks front axle. So in hopes for Will to have a front locker for the trip I ripped the H2 axle out from under the 2500 and swapped in a Full Float 14 Bolt.


    Semi Float 14 Bolt waiting for delivery.


    Parts are still rolling in, got two exciting deliveries today. Can't wait to put both of them to work.

    February 9th-12th - 17 days to departure

    We were in full thrash mode this weekend, working to prep the H3 for the trip. This H3 is a super cool proof of concept vehicle that my friends over at Outfitter Design have been working on for a while now.

    Outfitter Design Hex Tie Rod Sleeves
    Outfitter Design Solid Diff Bushings
    Outfitter Design HD front driveshaft
    Dana44 based custom IFS
    VVT 6.0L Motor from a 2011 2500HD
    Camaro 6l90 6 speed AT
    NP241 manual shift transfer case
    Complete integration from new motor/trans/transfer case to factory BCM/Dash/Controls


    We spent the weekend and part of Monday morning getting everything dropped into it's place, fluids filled, kinks ironed out of the powertrain swap. At this point the rest of the loose ends should be able to be tied up before the trip!

    February 13th - 16 days to departure

    Took care of some odds and ends last night. Got the drivers side and passenger side inner door handles replaced, new clips in the window cranks. The stereo overhaul is also complete now, should be ready for some Dreamweaver turned up to 11.

    Also wrapped up the drivers side anti-sub strap, and went over my things to do check list. Hopefully We're closing in on it.


    Need to swap transfercase yokes so I can measure and drop off my front driveshaft to be built.

    Parts came in yesterday!

    long travel Slip is extra beefy :D
